Atlas Moth (Attacus atlas) @ P. Ubin

Patrick spotted this pair of Atlas Moth (Attacus atlas) moths at Pulau Ubin. I am not sure if they are mating or if this is a male female pair though! Comments from readers are welcome.

Thanks Patrick for allowing me to reproduce your beautiful pics here! Pictures are copyright of Patrick. Read his original post here

Scarlet-backed Flowerpecker (Dicaeum cruentatum) on (Melastoma malabathricum) @ SBG

John Tie has some nice pics of the Scarlet-backed Flowerpecker (Dicaeum cruentatum) perched on a Straits Rhododendron (Melastoma malabathricum). The red is quite appropriate for Singapore's National Day eh?

Check out John's Flickr for more of his pics :)

Long-tailed macaque @ Bishan Park feeding on myna

Ewww this is possibly disturbing for those who can't handle gory details..
for those interested you can c the photos at

istDeS from clubsnap spotted this macaque feeding on the remains of a myna at Bishan Park. No details as whether the macaque caught a live prey or that it was dead when the macaque got to it.
Meat is definitely a good source of proteins. But I wonder if it was desperation that drove the macaque to eat carrion(?) hmmmm food for thought..
