Lotus & Lily – Taipei Botanical Garden (2) 蓮與荷, 台北市植物園(二)

I wish I had known this gem earlier. I remember having heard about its good reputation somewhere online, but I didn’t expect this good. Meanwhile, I am trying to grow some lotus and lily at home, if I can have this idea materialized, I will be able to watch them grow and eventually be rewarded with chances to take good pictures of them. In the mean time, it is a good time for me to review my photos and come up with new strategies – I believe I have exhausted ideas of how to take good pictures of them.

老話說得好 : 醜婦終須見家翁。 我這些比老妻 “不惶多讓” 的蓮花照片也必須出來見見人了。 我們是在離台前两天早上才去台北市植物園, 一見之下, 驚為天人, 確有點相見恨晚。還是留待下一回吧。 這些蓮、荷照只是OK而已。問題不在蓮與荷, 問題在於我. 不是說客氣話, 是真的技窮。 是時候坐下來, 看看自已的照片, 也看看人家的, 看是否能找到一新方向。 不然的話, 跑遍天下的蓮塘也是無濟於事。

Lotus -3  This was one of the few white flowers found there. The petals have a red tip, very elegant. 白蓮不多, 此白蓮在花瓣尖處有紅點, 漂亮得很。

  There were a lot of fishes in the pond, no wonder there were quite a few herons around. 池中魚兒不少, 引來水烏長駐.

Looks like he had a good day. However, this poor guy spent 20+ min struggling to swallow a fish that was the size of his head. 水鳥兄今早運氣不錯, 捕得大魚, 只是魚太大, 好不易才嚥得下去.

An artist at work along side the pond. I really like his T shirt, probably his own master piece. 這位画家非常投入, 引來不少喝采目光.
