Macro at Singapore Botanical Gardens

Today, I rented the Nikon 105/f2.8 VR macro from the camera rental centre.
Since I was collecting it at about 3pm, I decided to take a trip down to Botanical Gardens to try out the lens.

I did not know that the lens with the VR ability was huge and heavy.
Nevertheless, it was a great lens to use though I did not quite like the VR function as the VR motor keeps moving.
Perhaps I couldn't stand still that's why.

The objective of going to Botanical Gardens was to shoot insects.
I did not really find a lot of insects.
Shot a spider and a dragonfly,
also saw a damselfly and a frog at the sundial garden pond.
Then I realise that damselflies are really small.

Here are the shots from today's trip.

Red Tent Spider (Cyrtophora unicolor)

Trithemis Aurora

I really enjoyed the trip with the dragonfly as my last subject to shoot before I left the place.
It was a great trip.
