Did you know that the 'Common' kingfisher in Singapore is not common? And it might be a true "fisher" in the sense that it really specialises in fishing!

kacang-kacang Aegiceras corniculatum @ Pulau Ubin by Shufen
Originally uploaded by koiyau.
Spotted by Shufen on one of our trips to Ubin, this uncommon mangrove plant
was just beside us when we were looking at mudskippers. Its in a rather
precarious position right now.(right beside a track). A funny story was that
when we saw the propagules, one of us thought its immature, another thought
that it can't be all immature at the same time and clustered together in one
bunch. Guess who was right? Hint: check out the word crytovivipary
