Purple Heron

  Spotted this beautiful heron at the River Plains in Bishan- Ang Mo Kio Park.  I’m surprised by its long claws. For fish hunting actions, these claws should be very effective.        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Purple_heron


  Native to Singapore,  the color of the flower resembles that of the Singapore national flag.  


The Swan Lake at Botanic Garden is a serene and elegant place. Now close your eyes, and picture yourself floating on the lake, worrying about absolutely nothing.


These dragon flies were captured (on camera) in Botanic garden after a morning rain. Fascinating colors and textures of their wings. And the way they so elegantly perch on leaves and then swiftly fly away.           NParks has a comprehensive documentation of dragonflies at the Jurong Lake Gardens: https://www.nparks.gov.sg/juronglakegardens/explore-our-gardens/animals/odonates/dragonflies
