Happy Lunar New Year!

Good fortune, prosperity, and happiness to all, and in the midst of the celebrations and revelry, I hope everyone stays safe and avoids qualifying for an appearance on Monday Morgue.

According to the Chinese zodiac, it’s the Year of the Horse, but I don’t have any photos of dead horses, so here are some Hedgehog Seahorses (Hippocampus spinosissimus) instead.

Happy New Year everybody!

Thanks for your support and guest submissions (some of which are featured in this collage), and may 2014 be a fulfilling and exciting year for all of us. As tragic and as morbid as it sounds, I hope to be able to feature an ever greater variety of Singapore’s wildlife in 2014.

The guest submissions featured in this collage are:

Merry Christmas!

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope 2014 will be another year of amazing discoveries, meaningful encounters with biodiversity in its myriad forms, and stories to share with all. And of course, a shout-out to all the people who have contributed their photos and shared their sightings of various animal carcasses; I wouldn’t have been able to feature many species here if not for you. Thanks everyone for supporting Monday Morgue on Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr. Good health and happiness to all, and try not to become potential subjects for Monday Morgue so soon.

Happy Lunar New Year!

According to the Chinese zodiac, it’s the Year of the Snake! My wishes are pretty much the same as those that I had for Christmas – that this will be another year of amazing discoveries, meaningful encounters with biodiversity in its myriad forms, and stories to share with all. Good fortune, prosperity, and happiness to all, and once again, try not to become potential subjects for Monday Morgue so soon.

Of course, I always have to thank the people who have shared their photos with me. I’ve been featuring guest submissions for close to a year already, and unless you’ve been following me on Instagram or the Monday Morgue Facebook page, you probably wouldn’t have seen some of the newer photos I’ve taken. So I will be tweaking things a little, and ensuring that there’s a mix of both my own photos, as well as photos taken by others.

Merry Christmas!
