Birds and Flowers

Yellow Hibicus

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.
