Macro photography at home on day 42 of lockdown

Never ending lockdown day 42: Photographing the Stout-Embolus Ant-Mimic Jumper (Myrmarachne crassembolus) which is hanging in the mid air cos its prey (a mosquito) is flying off when it caught it & this spider managed to hang on in mid air by using the "safety line', the silk.

Macro photography at home on day 40 of lockdown

Never ending lockdown day 40: Photographing flowers of Latana camara that planted by me since last year. I planted it to attract the butterfly but unfortunately, there is none visiting it. Population of butterfly in my area has been decreased sharply. I used to see butterflies flying in my garden when I was young, but now I may laugh if I could see one flying pass me.



Birding at home on day 39 of lockdown

Never ending lockdown day 39: Photographing the zebra dove (Geopelia striata) in front of my house. It is the most common dove here. It even built a nest not far from my sleeping room.





Macro photography at home on day 38 of lockdown

Never ending lockdown day 38: Photographing black headed ant mimic jumping spider (Myrmarachne melanocephala) in my garden.




Black headed ant mimic jumping spider (Myrmarachne melanocephala) is "taking bath" by rubbing itself against the water droplets a few times. Interesting behavior that I never seen before.
