Went to the zoo yesterday. Here are some picture. Some of plants, a few more of animals.
Wollemi Pine – This plant was not looking too great earlier in the year but has recovered very well and I was happy to see it looking this good. I’d bet a solid 95% of zoo visitors walk by this with no idea what it is or why they should care.
Bamboo – possibly Sasa tsuboiana ‘Green View’? (Should have played around with my Polarizing Filter for this one, though I do sort of like the effect here since it isn’t on the whole picture.)
Justicia carnea (Thanks Aaerelon for the very fast ID)
Hibiscus moscheutos – This seems to be the species which I like a lot more than any of the cultivars I’ve seen. The way the flower isn’t opened into a flat disk adds a lot of interested. Looked to be growing untended in a swampy area.
And a few animals, because that’s apparently what most zoos are for.
