May 02, 2015: Myrmarachne at Queensway Sec School

The day started with heavy rain so Joseph cancelled this morning's spider hunt at Bukit Brown - but I was on my way to his home on the bus so what to do? We had a nice talk - and when the rain stopped, I left for the bus. Got off at Queensway Sec School - and wow - what a morning - two jumpers.

A new jumper for me - in a tree
