One of the best places to view pink lotus flowers in Singapore is at Ang Mo Kio Town Garden West. They are almost in full bloom now. Beside our iMOG, there were many photographers here this morning.
We were all excited to see so many beautiful lotus flowers.
I always find photographing flowers more challenging than shooting tiny insects. Presented with so many flowers in front of me, I suddenly found myself at a lost of what to do. As I looked around the pond, I saw some people standing on stone to get a top down view, a few attempted close up shots while others tried wide angle view.
Here are some of my shots from this outing:
There was a nice looking Hawk Moth Caterpillar found at the edge of the pond. This attractive apple-green caterpillar has an interesting tail horn about 4mm long. The back portion resembles the shape of a dog.
When we were about to call it a day, Joe & Kyaw Htay spotted 4 Planthoppers, possibly 2 males and 2 females. Unfortunately, the wind was too strong and we had a hard time getting even to get a record shot.
