Macro Outing to TTDI (Taman Tun Dr Ismail) – Taman Rimba Kiara

Went out with a few guys for bug chasing in Taman Tun! Just behind the temple at Taman Rimba Kiara, sadly there was a downpour the WHOLE night before so the place was soaked and the bugs were pretty scarce.

Half of the group got bored and went somewhere else instead.

But we stuck it out and found some really interesting stuff, namely the largest robber fly I’ve ever seen, a few decent spiders and 5-6 different varieties of Dragonfly!

    Excellent macro shots, but I was cringing when I viewed the pictures. No, I’m not a big bug fan. They give me the creeps! Haha!

    KY: Yah that one has nice space for a wallpaper.

    gazard: It’s a Robberfly, it kills and eats other flies, moths and beetles!

    moby: Thanks! Yeah it is freaky for some people seeing insects so close up, it’s not normal.

    I like the first and third shot best, with the dew drops catching the light. Your genuine interest and respect for the subject matter really shows. Inspiring!

    ps: Stumbled upon this flickr group, just thought I’d share it 🙂
