Last week I brought the kids to the Hong Kong Wetland Park. It was a great opportunity for them to get close to nature as we live in a metropolitan city full of high rise buildings.
It was the 2nd time that they have visited the park. The last time we visited the park was 3 years ago when Tiger girl was in Hong Kong for her 1st birthday celebration.
There has been quite a bit of changes in the park since our last visit. There was significantly lesser insects around and we couldn’t spot any birds. I guess that the summer heat of 33 degrees Celsius was keeping the animals away in hiding.
It wasn’t easy to zoom in an take photographs as my trusty DSLR was on holiday with R in N Z. I had to make do with his Sony Cybershot with it’s limited zoom range.
I had to literally place the camera at the flower to get a good close up of it. We didn’t stay long at the park as it was getting extremely hot by midday and the kids and I decided to call it a day and head back to some air-con comfort.
Have you been to the park lately?
