Nature Ramblings – The Singapore Botanic Gardens

on March 29, 2009

… So much for wanting to start blogging again, but yes, I’M BACK!

Went to the Botanic Gardens today with Kelly and Yu Han as part of my weekly nature ramble and also to try my hand out at nature photography after last week’s jaunt to Rifle Range Road with Navin and Yu Han. (Pictures found here at Navin’s very own photoblog)

 It was a wonderful day, barring the fact that it got hot very quickly. By 9am-ish, the sun was on full-burn, though that really didn’t hamper Kelly’s enthusiasm over the black swans at the Eco-Lake, and swans in general.

That aside, got a lot of walking done, and a lot of practice on my camera. A Sunday morning well spent. =)

 These were taken at the Tanglin Gate area of the park, near the food court. Apparently the only birds I’m skilled enough to snap at the moment are the relatively docile rock pigeons (but then again, I gotta start somewhere, don’t I?)
