a day in Royal Botanic Gardens
Finally, I managed to find some time today to visit Royal Botanic Gardens. The main motivation was to take some photos.
I know they look like bats, but they are called Grey-headed Flying-fox (Pteropus poliocephalus). (to Don: I did not make it up, see below.)
(As usual, more photos follow...)
Since our high tech friend has problem believing me, I decided to take this sign as a proof. BTW, all photos are original, (except watermarking and resizing).
Then, I found this old-fashioned object, I, of course, have to show it our high tech friend. This object works all year round, requires no electricity. However, it only works during day time and when there's sun.
Not just that, it requires some manual adjustments. I believe you will also need to apply daylight saving adjustment on top of that.
Here are some more photos as I needed to test my macro lens (Sony 100mm F2.8 Macro Lens, SAL100F28).
Thanks for looking through my photos.
What about flowers in the Royal Botanic Gardens? I am sure you can find better photos than my flower shots. (Sorry Don, Antony is not into flowers.)
Although I've never been to Boston's botanic gardens (whatever it is called), I am sure the Boston's version is a modern and beautiful one.
