There is a forested area between Segar Road and Chestnut Avenue. It is close to BKE and directly opposite Zhenghua Park. The nearest carpark is near Blk 276 at Bangkit Road. To access the site, we would need to walk through a path under the BKE. There is a large patch of greenery just near the underpass of BKE.
I have visited this site for almost 10 times since a friend introduced it to me since April 2013. I like this place because it is easily assessable and an excellent site to shoot insects with dews. Here are 2 dewy images taken in today’s outing with my regular photography buddy, Kyaw Htay, who is also my neighbour.
It was not difficult to find butterfly with dew too.
There were many Leaf-footed bugs. They are members of the order, Hemiptera, and in the true bug family, Coreidae. Leaf-footed bug is a herbivorous insect. They get their name from the flattened, leaf-like flare on the lower portion of their legs. Adults are quite large in size about 3 cm long. Here is an adult in early morning dew.
I was fortunate to spot four Leaf-footed bug nymphs on a single leaf of which one of them could had been moulted not too long go as its exoskeleton was still nearby. Three obedient ones lined up nicely in a single file but the naughty one preferred to hide behind the leaf. This has to be my photo of the outing!
