Dear all,

TIme : 7:30 PM

Please bring water, especially after heavy rain in the afternoon (most ideal condition for night macro) the humidity is so high, you can't imagine how much sweat you loose in a short while.

Please bring a bright torch light - Its never too bright - Flooders are encouraged, throwers are welcomed too (Will elaborate further this Friday)

If it rains - Please contact me, we will see and evaluate, its afterall exploratory.

Hi all, just to highlight to first time night macro-ers, you'll need to bring along a really STRONG torch, those with at least 3 white-light LED or brighter. You'll need it to focus. I made that mistake on my first night trip.

Look forward to meeting up with all tmr night.
