28 Jul 2021.
Today is the enlightenment day of Guan Yin, known as Guan Yin Dan. I had a wish to take a photo of a red dragonfly at Yio Chu Kang Crescent secondary forest. For the past few months, it had been trimmed and cut much more by contractors and ferns had taken a great portion of the edge like invaders. So there are few wild flowers which means no food for butterflies and dragonflies. There are 3 or 4 dragonflies and butterflies today instead of over 20 at one time.
So, I was surprised to see a red dragonfly that posed patiently for me to take photos. Another red one could not stay still and flew off. Also today is the first time sighting of a young monitor lizard grabbing a tree trunk. First time I saw it. Today is an auspicious day.
