【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】新蒲崗高山榕樂園 handsome lofty figs at san po kong

走入新蒲崗,舊區與以往工業區混調出一種跟香港鬧市區不同的步調。 正當呼吸享受遊走一帶,驚喜發現樓宇街道間一個綠色休閒方塊,裡面掛起了一道道木質羅帳。 衍慶街遊樂場內的高山榕,讓我見識到此樹種的殖民霸氣,那種一樹可成林的能耐。 高山榕氣根和板根發達,這幾棵有幸活在舊區的公園內,有不少空間讓牠們伸展。 只是路過,沒有時間細細賞識每棵樹,匆匆拍下寬展的樹根力牆,也頗壯觀。 正如香港很多平日風光,周圍賞識的人不多,但這些美樹還是有知「蔭」人,午間時分,公園人不多,但樹底下每棵都有一位伯伯或叔叔坐下。 i never imagine i am writing about beautiful trees in san po kong. this is an old and industrial district. if i set a plan for tree appreciation, this will not be one place listed on the plan. it is out of luck. it was lunch hour i was...

希美利與叉尾太陽鳥 scarlet bush/hummingbird bush & fork-tailed sunbird

常見一些鳥攝人士以象牙花為指標,瞄準以花蜜為食的鳥種。也許因為象牙花的嬌紅,讓畫面奪目吧。 我愛好觀鳥,擁抱的是大自然分派給我的時地緣。 certain plants attract certain creature, that’s how nature law is. some lung-yau (photography enthusiasts) always go after ivory coral tree flowering season for sunbird. i enjoy bird-watching but i embrace random luck. this morning i have the luck catching a pair of fork-tailed sunbird tweeting and feeding on a hummingbird bush.  今日在市區一幽靜山坡,木林中希美利花開,遠處已經聽到吱吱鳥唱。於是放輕腳步停守樹下,聽到鳥鳴趨近,更不敢肆意動作。循聲索雀,先捕捉到鳥身的剪影,於是拿起攝影機,對準方向,然後將鏡頭拉遠。 雄性這鳥正在整頓毛妝,竟然停留在樹枝上好一陣子,讓我拍下他鬆毛鬆翼多樣姿態。...

土沉香開花結果 agarwood flowers then fruit

土沉香本是很本土的尋常樹種,卻因牠的樹脂惹來殺身之禍。所以每次遇到,特別憐惜。 一個常去的地方,有數株尚算年青的,近一兩個月,看著開花結出青澀的牙香果,於是來個紀錄。 decades ago, incense tree or agarwood was just very common native tree, seen abundant in villages and the wild. but for the last decade or so, many if not every granny-grade incense tree in the rural areas or feng shui fall (back hill of villages) became the target of “incense thieves”. they are...
