Some sort of a long legged bug on a tree bark

Damselfly with blue coloured wings

You can lit up its wings with flash! :p

A frog I saw by a pool of water, should be a coppercheek.

No idea what this is, looks sort of like cricket but not quite :confused:
Image

An orbspider
Image

A big red mosquito! :shocked:

A Four-ridged Toad I found croaking in a dried curled up leaf with a puddle of water in it.

Nice interesting pics.

I like the yellow butterfly shot.
Would be great if the subject push back a little exposing more of the log in the foreground.
Would have given a better effect. :p

Love the shrooms shot :thumbsup:

Why didn't u fall into water trying to pull the log n beedeo the same time ? :lol:

Thanks Angelfishing, I will try to capture more of the foreground if I get the chance again. The butterfly caught my eye because of the lighting; the backlight is somewhat strong that pierces into the butterfly's wings. I'm not quite sure how to make the best of it then so I just snap and snap. :lol: They butterfly stood there obediently for me to shoot and I could get as close and 5cm away from it.

The frog too was quite cooperative at first, it waited for me to finish up with the butterfly and laid on the log motionless all this while. Too bad I can only get close to it by going into the water, the leaf litter in the water is about half knee deep. :shocked: The things we do just to get a closer look... :lol:

Haha, quite true. But just wait till you get really addicted to nature photography and see how much you're willing to do to get close to the subjects. :mischieve:

Here's are some pictures on a short trip from yesterday - same old place, but lots to see. :)

A hairly caterpillar I came across on the forest floor
Image

A damselfly resting on a leaf with it's wings unfolded

A small little froggie I found in a damp gully

A black colour beetle on a rotting log
