快影:螽在前,蜓在後 quick snap: a katydid & dragonflies

在市區公園欣賞池塘景色,發現了一隻綠色帶點棕色的螽斯,跟那青白的蓮花構成一幅悠然的畫面。 不一會,有隻蜻蜓停駐螽斯後面,覺得牠們在演出一幕獵人與獵物的攻防戰。拿起相機捕捉場面。 一剎那一飛一閃,水面甚至不起漣漪。兩者都飛走了。 回家將照片下載到電腦,才發現蜻蜓也許不為捕食。那裡原來有兩隻蜻蜓。 a casual afternoon in a city park. taking a moment at a pond, checking any creature interesting. saw this katydid resting nice and easy on a white waterlily. love the harmony of the colours in the shade of green and white. next moment, a big dragonfly flew by and hawking at...

貝澳 - 水牛家園及多樣自然生境 pui o, home of many buffalo and a land of great bio-diversity

跟大嶼山不少地方一樣,貝澳從前是種稻米的。耕田就需要牛。於是農民遠道從元朗引入牛隻。也跟大嶼山其他地方一樣,因為建造水塘,原來惠澤農田的天然水源都受人為干擾劫亂了,農民開始棄耕,加上經濟轉型,最後農業枯廢了。 農地丟廢了,對環境生態本有著危機。因為農地無人疏水,大雨可能引發氾濫,然後周圍就會給比較霸道的植物佔領,形成單調的生態。 pui o used to be a thriving village town on the lantau island. there used to be many paddy rice fields here. and buffalos were bought all the way from yuen long to here for farming. but as time changed, economic pattern switched, city life grew, and one lethal injection to farming here...

香港公園生態紀錄 2016.7.9 hong kong park nature journal

幾乎每星期都會到香港公園,為的是便利的市區自然體驗。 當有時間,不會想去商場購物,或者尋找美食,只會很想投入有花草樹木鳥蟲魚的場地。而香港公園於我非常方便,很多時會乘坐電車到中環或金鐘,享受一陣自然風的車程,穿過港島最繁華的高樓大廈的國度,然後鑽身自然世界,有時會連掃遮打花園和兵頭花園(動植物公園)。 每次行走都會拍照,但甚少珍而重之地作筆記。 坐言起行。 hong kong park is my urban nature haven. i go there nearly once a week. it is not far but it needs a tram trip. the journey, now thinking about it, is quite cleansing. i always take the tram to go to admiralty, have some real air blowing my way passing...
