Birds and Flowers
Brightly colored flowers are what I love looking at. I’ve seen many red and pink hibiscus but this one really caught my eye. A yellow hibiscus. I seldom see hibiscus in this color and it was certainly worth a second glance.
I saw this flower in a hanging pot while walking up the ramp to Penang Hill from the train station. Doesn’t it look lovely? I wouldn’t mind to have some pots hanging outside the house.
I saw this flower as we entered the Ginger garden at Penang Hill. It was our first time seeing so many different types of ginger. There is a ginger garden too at the Singapore Botanic Garden and maybe I should revisit the place with the kids during the next holidays.
There was a bird enclosure at the Ginger garden and were fascinated by the birds we saw. The kids spotted this peacock in an enclosure.
It was a pity the peacock didn’t open up it’s tail feathers when we were there or it would have been an awesome to be able to snap such a shot.
I saw this interesting looking red eye bird called a crowned pigeon at another enclosure. It was the first time I saw a bird with blood red eyes. It looks really ominous to me.
I do love the sky blue of its feathers as it’s a really lovely color. However this is not a bird which I would like to admire in an aviary.
I love the vibrant colors on the parrot’s body. The different colors of Red and blue make it pleasant to the viewing eye.
