I've decided to start a new series on this blog. Every Monday, I will put up a photo of a random dead animal that I have encountered on my adventures and explorations around Singapore. I seem to have this fascination for poking around the carcasses of any creature I stumble upon - they don't run away, you can pose them whichever way you like and take as many photos as you want without stressing them out, and besides, they can and do form a useful record of the species living in the area.

What a way to start the week. But in a morbid way, I am looking forward to the posts!

And you are right, they are records and none of us pay enough attention to them.
