Learn all about dragonflies from Tang Hung Bun, an avid dragonfly-watcher and photographer.
About the speaker: Tang Hung Bun is an avid dragonfly-watcher and photographer. In 2009, he took a break from his teaching career in order to focus his time and effort on preparing a book on the dragonflies of Singapore. The book, titled "A photographic guide to the dragonflies of Singapore" and co-authored with Wang Luan Keng and Matti Hämäläinen, was published by the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research in August 2010. Since 2010, he spends his time on observing and recording on video the behaviour of dragonflies and other orders of insects. He also attempts to use a high-speed camera to capture the flight behaviour of some insects such as territorial fight between rival male dragonflies, wing-opening of earwigs, etc. Some of his videos can be viewed on YouTube. Tang Hung Bun also maintains a website: Dragonflies and damselflies of Singapore
