That is good news. I had never seen Sing so dry. :-)

Thank god, yes. There was a severe possibility of forest fires in all the nature reserves. One actually broke out in MacRitchie but luckily enough was spotted and quelled quickly. Everything was dry, but luckily enough it started raining a little after you spotted this dragonfly.

Thank you duttagupta. Yes, it was a full-blown drought http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/235... Is it over now?

Beautiful! I love how the red contrasts with the brown ground. I'm assuming this was taken during the drought? The date seems to indicate as much.
