spiders!!! pretty interesting since the lecturer is from the spider lab ^^ out of the 5 practical groups there were at least 3 groups doing something regarding those cool spiders at lab park (ther was one group doing something about ants tho') our group decided to relate web-size with type of habitat (open vs. enclosed) my sub-group was to do enclosed, meaning in the forest area, so we trooped up the hill and had a fun spider spotting amidst the greenery... leonard and i went trigger happy at the same time, taking photos of nature... that's leonard below taking a photo at one of the spiders we traumatised ^^ kinda bad enough that we were disturbing their webs by taking measurements, and we JUST had to take photos of there once in a while too!
since i kinda just borrowed a very basic digicam from wai, the 10 over pics i took of spiders and insects were mainly out of focus... that's a real pity since the weather was fab and the insects were all nicely posing for us! kinda sad that the photo of the 6-legged spider (i am pretty sure it is a wounded spider since it had like 4 legs on one side and 2 on the other..) didn't turn out... besides, leonard and i were very fascinated by this nice LONG, succulent earthworm we saw (kristal i do hope u are NOT reading this!) it was just so gorgeous! anyway, only ONE of the "creatures" photos that i took came out a little decent... see if u can spot Mr Nephila antipodiana, with the spotted abdomen in the photo below... (yeah yeah, i KNOW i am not one of the best photographers, but.... anyway, watson said i cld borrow his spare digicam, so i do hope the photos from the next fieldtrip to sungei buloh wld turn out better)
well... all i have to do now is to do the report that is dued on wed.... (why is it that we have less than a week to do it?!?)
