I used to work at Singapore's Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, hence my interest is mainly nature. SBWR is a great place for nature photography. Sadly, it is more well-known among the international birding community than amongst our own Singaporeans. So I want to do my part to promote this undiscovered gem that is right in our own backyard.

 

Other than birds, there's loads of other cool stuff to shoot there as well...bugs, mudskippers, crabs, reptiles, wild otters, gorgeous sunsets, strange-looking mangrove plants...and not to mention the occasional estuarine crocodile!

 

If you wish to pay a visit and/or have any queries about SBWR or its weird and wonderful inhabitants, feel free to drop me a line. I would be glad to be of help.

 

I also like to take pics of quirky stuff I see around me and of my kids (maybe cos they are quirky too!). But MACRO is my first love.

You are one very outgoing, friendly and a true inspiration to my wife Adrael and myself. It is a pleasure knowing you and your family. Seriously hope to see all of you again. Your photography isn't just about showing people the colours of life but the passion behind the capture.

Colleen's photos speak for themselves but with her comments and descriptions to each of them, it makes the experience of visiting her photo stream even better! Hopefully, one day I will have the chance to visit SBWR and go on a tour with the famous *Damselfly* herself ;)

Damselfly's awesome nature macros taken by none other than her trusty Sony T10 never fails to impress. she has taken your common point-and-shoot, stripped away the limits to best suit her shooting needs at a higher level. when it comes down to the crunch, what she lacks in better noise control and fine-tuning of manual settings, she makes up for in speed and precision in her shots, while the average Dslr system just eats her dust. her keen eye for detail, skill in color and composition always makes her photostream a joy to visit. i also enjoy getting her encouraging comments, sometimes fused with pseudo-lian jokes, but still quite comical, lah. beyond the camera, Colleen is a sincere and approachable person with a big heart, she is an generous host without any air about her and probably one of the friendliest people i've met on flickr. suffice to say, she is one of the few to have gained my respect and i'm proud to have her as my flickr buddy! *note to recipient: i am not closet beng!

*Damselfly* is an amazing photographer! I always look forward to seeing what types of shots come from her lens. Her macro creations inspired me to try my hand at macro photography. Amazing photos from an amazing person.

She was working in the wetland area, where I have been visiting for most in the 70's - 80's. I am glad to know that she is doing her contributions in "Green - Sustainability" of her Nation & the world by & large. I have been accidentally found her on another contacts of her. I am totally impress on her skill & knowledge in Macro Imaging. Each of her exhibit not only recorded something most people ignored in daily life, also help to put forward a deeper thoughts on the living enironments & our relationship with nature. I salute her on her imaging skill & knowledge. Each of her Master Piece is an great art by itself. Thank you for your contribution & kindness, sharing with the community. I appreciate it. You are great!!
