Off to the Venus Drive side of MacRitchie Reservoir.
Our first surprise was Cyrtarachne fangchengenis - the bird dung spider. She displays a quite interesting something - gray patches that seem to migrate near the orange blobs. - here are a couple of videos
Video of the migrating segements
In the field (near SICC) - not as obvious as in the lab
In the lab
Bird dung spider: Cyrtarachne fangchengenis - found at the edge of MacRitchie Reservoir.
In Joseph's home lab
Another view - the migrating patches are not so obvious in this sequence
A bit later
Ant mimic spider, Myrmarachne maxillosa
Another view Myrmarachne maxillosa
Joseph spotted this jumper - Portia labiata - I thought it was just forest rubbish. Closer look and you can see two of the lateral eyes
Walking back to our car - a monkey
