The Golden Gem (Libellago lineata) damselfly, spotted at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park, Singapore, on 27 Sept. 2020.
First time I've spotted it in Singapore. I first saw it in 2017 in the garden of my parents' house in Malaysia.

Quelque part en Bretagne, au dessus d'un petit port finistérien,
un étrange univers comme figé par nos souvenirs anciens.

Somewhere in Bretagne (France), above a small Finistère port,
a strange universe as frozen by our old memories.

2020 is turning into a good dragonfly year for me. 🙂 Spotted another Sultan (Camacinia gigantea), this time at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore, on 22 Sept 2020, at the pond after the Visitor Centre. It took flight and hovered in one spot, so I took in-flight photos of it.

Spotted this Dome Web Spider (Cyrtophora moluccensis) at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve on 22 Sept. 2020. It was sitting in the middle of a very messy 3-D web.
As usual, I've put the pictures behind a CW, but I think it is a pretty nice looking spider. 🙂
