Lornie / Golf Link Trail – A dragonfly heaven!

I used to think that Venus Drive is the best place to hunt for dragonflies & damselflies.  I was wrong after my first visit to Lornie / Golf Link Trail on 14 Aug 2010.  Since then, I have been there for more than 10 times.  So far, I have seen or photographed a total of 13 damselfly species & 27 dragonfly species which represents almost one-third of Singapore species!  Most of them can be found at the edge of MacRitchie Reservior along Golf Link Trail as well as the forested areas along the Boardwalk towards Jelutong Tower.
