Wow the last time I went to the Tampines Butterfly Garden was in 2012. Time really flies! So I wasn’t really sure whether the place was still around but yes it was still there. Same old place but just appear a bit unkempt and more wild.
A lot of butterflies flying around but most of them of the more common variety. Didn’t see any Mormons which was one butterfly I really wanted to have a picture of. 🙁
Anyway here are some photos of the butterflies and caterpillars
2 different specimen of caterpillar. Can’t identify this particular one though:
And last but not least, a Changeable Lizard managed to sneak in and had a Lime Butterfly for lunch
I think it really great that there is such a facility in Singapore and which is free and open to the public and lizards unlike the other butterfly park in Sentosa or the new one at the Science Centre. The Tampines Butterfly Garden is run by volunteers, mainly residents staying around the area. There is even a “Nature Centre” on the ground floor of a nearby flat although it was closed when I was there on Wednesday. Hopefully Nparks will set up more such collaboration in other neighbourhoods.
