I used to run at MacRitchie Reservoir every week. That was during my secondary school days when I was in the cross country team. There’s nothing like running through a nature trail with the smell of soil and vegetation, and the orchestral sounds of insects, enveloping your senses.
Feeling nostalgic recently, I paid the place a visit and took a walk on one of the boardwalk trails. There, I encountered some really tame monkeys as well as a rather tame water monitor lizard. Spent about 30 minutes taking photos of them.
The monkeys were so cute and the monitor lizard was so beautiful.
Here are the photos. Hope you like them!
There are also, like, interesting flora to look at on the trails, but I’m not really into those. More into fauna. If it doesn’t move, it’s kinda boring, isn’t it?
I’m thinking I want to start running regularly at MacRitchie again soon. Such a cool place to be at.

Wow. Nice nature photos especially the photos of the monitor lizard. You are lucky the animals were calm that day.
Thats a pretty good camera! What model is it?
What was that? A komodo dragon? I would have so freaked out! Goes to show you that I’m not much of a nature person!
@tiger4: Thanks! :) Yeah, it was quite exciting the way the animals let people photograph them, lol.
@Lucas: I was using a Lumix DMC-TZ10
@Faith: That was a water monitor lizard. There are land ones also.
