蕉坑生態紀錄 2015.7.19 tsiu hang, sai kung record

每年大概一兩次到西貢這個自然教育中心。剛過去的星期天又去了一次。這次適逢夏天,植物昆蟲跟過去的景況又很不同了。

觀察、欣賞、學習大自然,同一個地方,不同時段,每個季節,已經是不同的世界,趣味無窮。

i visit this nature education centre once or twice every year. just did one this past sunday. every time i will make a record of living things spotted.

this is how i appreciate and learn about nature, same place different time of the day and year. trees can be flowering this season and shedding leaves the other; insects are more active and abundant in the warm season. so many to see and sense all around the year.
