it was fellow Pentax users monthly outing at Hortpark in June. This beautiful butterfly was shot in the butterfly garden which open only on the last Saturday of the month.
There were friendly Hortpark staff attending and willingly telling us the name of the butterflies in the park. This is a “Jacintha Eggfly” butterfly. Actually it was feeding on the dirt in the rubber grip of the lens. Yuck!
This photographs in this posting were taken at the 4th storey of the exhibition. There was flower arrangement competition, lotsa of orchids from different countries including Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand etc and also winning orchids from previous years.
The flower arrangment competition was still in progress. We didnt know the winner, otherwise would have post here.
Like this unique bunch of orchid. unfortunately didnt note down the name.
Single bloom, big and imposing…
UFO like orchid. An eye opener for me…
A lot of fakey paper orchid is modeled after this one…
So many orchid so little time. For photography buff and flower lovers, this is one show you wont want to miss.
I will be back!!
Over 200,000 plants and 60,000 flowers were used to create the gardens and floral dsplays for this year’s Singapore Garden Festival. Staged over 2 storeys (6th and 4th storey), i spent 4 hours and only managed to cover 75% of the exhibits. There were just too many flowers and gardens to shoot….
All the photographs here are from the “gardens” in the 6th storey. The 4th storey featured ikebana arrangement and orchirds from the regions, which will be featured in the next post.
