樹頭菜花祭 2018 spider tree flower celebration

原來這部落第一次寫樹頭菜,是 2012 年的春天。多次春天的花季,貼文也有所記錄。這些年來,很多時候會經過九龍那繁忙路段,卻通常是在巴士上,匆匆瞥看。感覺今年的花美,於是專程去了一趟太子道西賞花,結果來了一場九龍城的「樹頭菜花祭」。 this blog started on spider tree flower season in spring back in 2012. almost every post i mentioned about the best scenery along prince edward road west. yet never did i truly walk along the stretch of road planted with spider tree and make a first person appreciation of the season, until...

波波褐藻 puffy brown algae (colpomenia sinuosa)

平日在臉書追隨的「海下之友」,近數天介紹了好幾種近來所見的海藻。剛過去星期天到訪西貢赤門海峽的荔枝莊,適逢在那裡海岸遇見當中一種,不禁多了解一下。 網上查索,除了漁護署有比較詳細介紹馬尾藻外,有關香港海藻的英文和中文資料稀少。 這是種褐藻,生長在海岸岩石上,氣囊般的型態,藻黃色的如腦袋。 去年二月底同臨此地,並沒有如此海藻爆生的情況。找不到有關此褐藻的生長條件資料,只能推敲去年來訪時氣溫較低,而近日天氣溫暖潮濕,會否是後者的環境適合此藻類? 得強調,這裡所寫的中英文俗名是筆者自己所作,並非正式,因為網上通常以拉丁學名名之。 this past sunday, spotted some algae bloom at lai chi chong, a geopark around tolo channel, north-eastern sai kung. one specific algae i just read these few days from “friends of hoi ha” on fb. that triggers me trying to learn more about. unfortunately there are not that many easy...

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) -...
