Last week the UK Govt published a new draft of their #OnlineSafetyBill, making UK corps liable for jail time unless they censor "harmful" content (without defining harmful). Targeted at Big Tech it instead directly threatens Matrix. Read matrix.org/blog/2021/05/19/how & raise the alarm.

The Chocolate Albatross (Appias lyncida) has made its seasonal appearance in Singapore, and here are my shots of. Apparently, this year it is pretty abundant compared to previous years. Taken at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park on 16 May 2021.

The Chocolate Albatross is abundant in nearby peninsula Malaysia, but only appears seasonally (and rarely) in Singapore.

Spotted a number of these Mangrove jellyfish (Acromitus sp.) moving about in the water at the dam leading to the east entrance of Coney Island, Singapore, on 13 May 2021. First time I've spotted jellyfish in the wild.

The difference telescope focal length makes. First image is from an 80mm f5 refractor (400mm focal length). Second from a 20.5 cm f3.9 reflector (800mm focal length). Both were with the same imager.

Spotted this Common Flashwing (Vestalis amethystina) at the Rail Corridor next to Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Singapore, on 3 May 2021. Haven't spotted one for some time, so nice to see it again.

The Common Flashwing is one of the larger damselflies found locally.

“EU member states have used illegal operations to push back at least 40,000 asylum seekers from Europe’s borders during the pandemic, linked to the death of more than 2,000 people.”

Deaths? Surely we mean murders, right? Abolish Frontex now! Not even ICE under Trump murdered 2,000 people. I guess this is what they mean by “European values.”
