A Walk in the Park

Tired of being cooped up at home and not actually getting any work done, I took my new camera for a walk. Sunday afternoons are busy periods for the Botanic Gardens, but it was still possible to find some peace and quiet there. It felt good to be out in the sunshine, amongst God's creatures, and then some... (yes it is possible to get weary of fine dining...)

the eponymous residents of Swan Lake (mute swans, sadly named)

"Hmm, I wonder if that's edible..." (pink-necked green pigeon)

"Sometimes one needs to get off the treadmill of life and do some contemplating...y-up..."

He may have a short neck but... (radjah shelduck)

... the girls still flock to him. (ok I'm kidding - those are lesser whistling ducks)

Hey, where's Wally?

not quite birdsong

and then the light faded...

time to head on home
What I wouldn't give to live this close to nature on a daily basis. Ah well, a stint in Ubud will have to do.
(here are more pix of the Botanic Gardens, from a previous visit.)
