I was a little shaken after the attack but it was quickly overwhelmed by the eagerness to shoot it. :lol: I did use the pod because it's on the ground and the lighting is kind of poor. Neat little bean bag.

Don't worry, I won't go down so easily, I still got a website to finish. ::x: I went to explore a stream this time round, it was a rather fruitful trip as I observed several spots with crabs. :grin: I didn't manage finish exploring the place as the weather isn't exactly friendly, and it can be pretty dark in the woods on cloudy days. :sweatdrop:

Too long have I been away from the forest, I want to go back there but couldn't find time for it, let alone fishing. :( Just posting some pictures from a hike round the reservoir a long while back, hope there are no repeats. :o

A nice tranquil spot
Image

I didn't know about freshwater mussels in our reservoir. I've been seeing quite a bit mussel shells on trails but never understood how they got there, now I do. Apparently, there are people harvesting these mussels and cooking/eating them on the spot.

we are missing out some nice interesting pics from you for a while ...
Looks like you be able to share with us again ... :)

The first pic really tranquil looking de lor ... if can camp n fish there shiok ah . :lol:

The mushroom look really huge ...
The biggest I have seen locally is barely palm size.

my S3 is seriously collecting dust ...
I miss those time when I was combing the bushes for little bugs.
So excited to find them and yet so weary of my surrounding when I was looking out for them.
The feeling ... hard to describe. lol !

And each trip always had me visiting the family doctor's clinic treating my allergy ... to grass ! :rant:

Were the fishes you saw in a pond? Both species of fish can co-exist in natural and man-made environment, but more often seen together in a man-made environment which you can easily observe in botanical gardens. Tilapias are prey to snakeheads but they breed fast and are not always easy to chase. :lol:

It's pitch dark in the woods at night so you have be careful not to lost your way even if you have a flashlight with you. :nod: Botanical Gardens it's a no-no, that's where Nparks headquarter resides. :shocked:
