04/03/2012 Penang Hill

Last Sunday, me and my brother-in-law went to Penang Hill for some photo shooting. We reached the foot of Penang Hill early in the morning around 6:20 A.M. as the first tram will be depart at 6:30 A.M.

We arrived on top of the Penang Hill after 15 minutes, and started to search for a sweet spot to start our photography.

Penang 7:00 A.M.
At 7:00 AM, the Sun starting to rise

God's creation and man's creation
After 20 minutes, the rain clouds started to cover up the view, as you can see on the right of the the photo. The bridge is the Penang Bridge that connects Penang Island with the main land.

When the rain clouds fully covered the view below, me and my brother-in-law switched to macro shooting.

Love is everywhere
If not mistaken, the bugs in the photo are known as Human Face bug. These two are mating.

I have a face on my back
A closer look of the bug

Empty house
An empty shell on the leaf

Colorful fly
A shining fly, I am not sure whether it's a fruit fly, maybe someone can tell me

Silent assassin
A green praying mantis hide between the leaves that's waiting for its prey

Slow and steady
A young snail crawling on the leaf with great patience

Eight legged thing
A tiny jumping spider resting on the leaf

After spending 3 hours more on Penang Hill, I realized that it's a place very suitable for macro photography, all one need is just patience to search for these tiny creatures, for sure, I will visit it again.
