Riding the MRT to Jurong West and then to Tuas. Click, drag and zoom to explore our spider hunting.
Today was just plain fun. HK, his brother and Yixiong and I set off to look for spiders and dragonflies. There was no disappointment today
Here are my tracks from our flat near Queenstown MRT to Tuas
and here is where we found mostly crab spiders. The GPS accuracy is rather unbelievable. The parallel green tracks represent HK's driving on opposite sides of the highway as we came and returned. The green track inside the green rectangular box is where I walked and the reddish area that I crossed is a model airplane airport (see photo below).
Here was our first find - a Crab hiding withing a wild orchid
Our Crab again
A water dropplet
A Neoscona hiding. If you look closely near the base of her front legs, you can see two of her eyes reflect the light of my flash
A crab spider hiding at the base of a pitcher plant
Looking at me
