【本城美樹 amazing trees in hong kong】西貢墟美髯細葉榕 “big beard” chinese banyan (ficus microcarpa) in sai kung town centre

非西貢居民進去西貢墟,一定非常忙碌,趕著吃海鮮找美食,又或趕著轉車轉船親親大自然。 但我入西貢很多時都會多預時間,可以沿海旁吹吹海風看看主人們遛狗,又會鑽入西貢墟的樓房小巷認識社區,當然少不了走入感覺很時光轉移的一片綠蔭方地,當中大樹包圍一座泥黃色平房,不遠有個門樓標示萬宜灣鄉立學校。而較近食肆小巴站沙咀遊樂場的另一邊,就有必定過來打聲招呼,感覺生活最暢快的「美髯親王」細葉榕。 這棵細葉榕擁有最開心的大氣空間。實在看得太多細葉榕的「鬍鬚」被人修剪被人打結或者「鬢辮」,「留鬚」的權利慘遭剝削。這幸福細葉榕則可盡情伸展其美髯,猶如手工掛麵一梳一梳呼吸空氣讓陽光撫弄。 香港的標誌細葉榕主要盤桓石牆,能坐擁一大片泥土及空氣的細葉榕,在土地問題如此嚴峻的城市,不單教樹也教人羨慕。但願我們可一直羨慕這棵細葉榕下去。 for non sai-kung residents, i believe every time when you make the effort of going there you probably are busy and in a hurry to complete your plan. either you are meeting families or friends for a gastronomic gathering, or you are en-routing to the country park, marine park or hiking...

快影:灰鶺鴒 snaps: grey wagtail (motacilla cinerea)

在市區公園內遇到這冬候鳥,在一水池沿邊一直不停步,拿著相機有點追蹤不上。 但牠胸下及身末那鮮黃反影於湖綠上,實在讓人心動,相機也隨之。  spotted this little one bouncing around a pond in an urban park. it was a bit challenging for me, an amateur birdie and photographer to follow. luckily the patches of fresh yellow sparkles in the water reflection helps. grey wagtail is a migratory bird for hong kong.  灰鶺鴒 grey wagtail (motacilla cinerea) -...

耳果相思的耳果 the fruit of earleaf acacia/earpod wattle

耳果相思與香港種植繁多的樹種台灣相思是同科同屬的,所以他們某些特徵相近,如開黃色毛絨的花, 如他們的真葉只出現在幼苗時期,成樹茂密的是葉柄進化的「假葉」。 耳果相思在香港的郊區和市區常見,是常綠喬木。原籍澳洲、南亞。 此樹的「假葉」呈闊鐮刀形,有三、四主脈。穗狀花序,橙黃色細小花數枚簇生於葉腋或枝頂。 立即介紹本文的主角,耳果相思的莢果。何其有趣的造型,扭彎再扭彎,植物科學前輩認為像耳朵故命名。我則覺得像搖鼓,特別是果成熟木化後。這照片是本星期拍的,果實非常鮮嫩,帶著新生的粉綠色。 acacia is a very common planting species in hong kong. back in the 1970s formosa acacia was one of the top three species planting in our country parks as well as in the city. earleaf acacia shares the same family and genus with formosa acacia and it is also common...

香港 2016年12月 hong kong in dec 2016

十二月不同日子不同地點的天空。captures of the sky at different spots in hong kong on different days in december. 上個月香港的天空長久美麗,藍天的日子很多。活在清朗的藍色大氣下,情緒很難不高昂。 但美麗的藍空伴隨是暖和的氣候;十二月的白天感覺如夏日,絕不能不檢視那異常。 藍天帶來的興奮收藏的應該是苦澀的未來開始。人類對氣候和地球的殘害真象其實已經在顯露,大家不能只陶醉表象,大家不能只滿足於在自然尋趣,必須為自然行動和付出。 we have many blue sky days last month. the clear crisp blue atmosphere easily bumped up our mood and good senses. but an uneasy nerve kept ticking in my head. it was december and there are many...
