JURONG LAKE GARDENS
Is been a while since I last visited Chinese Garden/Japanese Garden which will be part of the Jurong Lake Garden in the near future.
One of the most distinctive icon in the garden is this 7-storey pagoda.
If you like lotus flower, this is the right place to visit. I shot this using my mobile.
I always find lotus flower very attractive and give a sense of purity. There is a Chinese idiom 出于泥而不染 basically say it all... it simply mean out of mud and yet did not get soiled or dirty.
Brown Shrike (
) can be seen only during this period as they are migratory bird arrive here to avoid the winter up north.
Another migratory bird in the garden, Blue-Tailed Bee-Eater(
White-Breasted Waterhen (Amaurornis phoenicurus) running around near the water edge.
Perching on the tree over looking the pond below and is hard to spot when it stay motionless - Striated heron (Butorides striatus) also known as Little heron.
Although with the nest, this Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) is not with breeding plumage yet. May be soon?
A very small bird, Common Iora (
) can sing very loudly and with many different melodies.
Brown-Throated Sunbird (
) feeding on the nectar of the flower.
Another bird that can be easily spotted in the garden by simply follow their loud call - Collared kingfisher (Todiramphus chloris)
A female Pink-necked Green Pigeon (
) that without the "pink neck". Only the male show the pink-neck that's how they got their name.
A very friendly Plantain Squirrel.
