I am revisiting Bukit Timah Hill after a long time away. This trip yielded some good sightings. Here are a couple of shot of spiders along the less trodden paths. There are indeed more people roaming the hill but a great majority move too fast, too engaged among themselves to notice intricacies of nature around them. Many of them are simply disinterested.

Both could be Orb-Web Spiders, one makes a single-plane web whereas the other makes a 3-D tent-like web.
