Sunday Night Macro @Rifle Range Trail

After the morning macro shoot at Venus Drive, we proceeded for lunch at Sembawang Hill hawker centre.  There, Ben decided that he wanted a new torch for seaching and spotting bugs.  A few of us accompanied him to Beach Road Army Market, before Ben settle for a torch at a shop in Funan IT Mall.

Though tired, Ben was keen to put his new torch to the test and suggested we do some night macro shoot that very night.  So after dinner, we headed over to Rifle Range.    No regret as we were rewarded with some great finds like mating Longhorn and Tiger beetles.
