The Wary Resident

Ever since the availability of this space, threading from the central district to the Woodlands district in the north, the re-imagining The Rail Corridor (Green Corridor) has tickled the fancy of Singaporeans and residents alike. This in turn gave rise to a series of events dedicated to enhancing the public awareness and understanding of the tract of railway land. The events comprised of an exhibition, a design workshop and a public forum, intended to develop and explore creative ideas for this space. Needless to say ideas started to fly, thick and fast (broadly: Ecology, Heritage, Recreation, Transport, Education and Community Gardening).

Did they consult this wise-looking resident, Ayush?

Excellent shot!
Ayush Basu: Coming from the macro specialist, this means a lot to me, Ray!

Ayush Basu: Uhmm, I think he saw his reflection in the lens and was wondering about the handsome guy in the lens grin

He is wondering what you are doing in his garden Ayush
Ayush Basu: There was no spitting involved, Chris, I can assure you of that!

Sounds like all needs can be met here, in that case. This chap probably ticks Ecology, Recreation, Transport and Gardening at least wink
Ayush Basu: Haha, that's well put Alan, he could be the poster boy for The Green Corridor, in other words.
Sounds like your country is doing this the right way. I love that eye peeking out.
Ayush Basu: This was one shy character; after this shot, I was only contemplating whether I should move in closer a bit or not, and off he was in a flash!
He wants a quiet life but all these conservationists keep bothering him grin

He looks as though he's peeping around that blade of grass to see if you're still there, Ayush.

This photo of yours would look well in the exhibition, Ayush
Ayush Basu: You're too kind Lisl, thank you for that
This was a fortunate find Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Most definitely! Before my companion could come over to take a shot after I got the attention, this character had departed!

He is hiding well but not well enough for you with your camera.
Ayush Basu: Just a lucky glance in his direction, CP and he was still too fast for me
And, of course, photography smile
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, nosy pests all crawling in the undergrowth on their hands and knees for hours grin
What a handsome fella Ayush! Wonderful capture.
Ayush Basu: Normally I am not very keen on macro or closeups of the small things closer to the ground, lacking the patience to get down and dirty for hours at an end, but this fella did appeal to me highly! Thank you, Richard
He has spotted you Ayush. Great capture
Ayush Basu: Much before I spotted him, Janet! Thank you very much.

He has an eye on you, what an incredible picture.
You were so lucky that you spotted him smile
Ayush Basu: Normally I am not very keen on macro or closeups of the small things closer to the ground, lacking the patience to get down and dirty for hours at an end, but this fella did appeal to me highly! Thank you very much for that "WOWSER", Astrid.
Oh I miss garden lizards! smile
Ayush Basu: This is the real deal, LC!grin
SO good... he's just peeking at you.
Ayush Basu: I just got lucky to have seen him, Jacquelyn

Ayush Basu: Thank you very much and happy new year to you too, Gil!
It seems unsure what to do next.
Ayush Basu: He did show some clean heels really fast.
I think he is just shy.
Ayush Basu: And agile too, Michael!
This is good, Ayush...all good, to have awareness of these ecological and natural spaces for us all.
Ayush Basu: A good start, definitely yes, let us see how it proceeds, Ginnie

The crocodiles in Singapore climb trees? Or is it a skinky type on a grass blade smile
Ayush Basu: Just a juvenile croc, Louis grin I have a couple of them somewhere under my bed as well!
Oh isn't he great!! Wonderful shot Ayush - you did well!
Ayush Basu: Thanks a bunch Elizabeth, I'm not really a macro/close ups kinda guy, so I was myself pleased with this shot, if I do say it myself!
