August was a month of normalisation: a time to take a breath after an exciting few months of family visits and travel. School begins, routines kick back in, space to gawk at familiar places and wonders.
Like this old friend, the Malayan Water Monitor, camouflaged in the Feature Photo (which is flipped on its side). Early enough in the morning to catch sight of him in his favourite tree in the Singapore Botanic Gardens, presumably seeking out bugs for brekkie. The glee of amazing nature.
