A Stick Insect (order Phasmida) spotted at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park, Singapore, on 16 May 2021. I was lucky to spot it: I was looking at a butterfly perched on a lower leaf which took off. My eyes followed it upwards briefly, and then settled on the stick insect, quietly standing there hoping I wouldn't see it. 🙂

J'ai fait du #vélo 3 fois cette semaine. 2 ballades le midi (lundi et aujourd'hui), et un aller-retour #vélotaf mercredi.

Comme je recevrai ma première dose de vaccin demain, on m'a avisé que je retournerai au bureau à plein temps d'ici deux semaines.

Ça fera plus de trajets de vélo quotidiens, en espérant que ça m'aidera à perdre les 5 kg gagnés depuis le début de la pandémie... 🙄

The Chocolate Albatross (Appias lyncida) has made its seasonal appearance in Singapore, and here are my shots of. Apparently, this year it is pretty abundant compared to previous years. Taken at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park on 16 May 2021.

The Chocolate Albatross is abundant in nearby peninsula Malaysia, but only appears seasonally (and rarely) in Singapore.

We went for a wander after looking at the art installation, and since I was there, I shot the Story Bridge as well.

As we go into colder weather it is not easy for many .

have mainly gone into hibernation - I found lots of German wasps when shifting firewood from my wood-pile.

There are still around, , chrysalises and butterflies. The latest to hatch near the house, I took down to my garden where it could find some flowers with nectar to fuel its flight to some wintering spot.

Another turned up on an unused hose reel, which I've put in a safe place to hatch.
