UBC botanical garden

In june 2006 I took a trip to the botanical garden at the University of British Columbia, armed with a camera, tripod, and some lenses. This is the result of that little trip.

"Glowing embers" succulent

A succulent called "glowing embers"... it's fairly obvious why =)

I don't really know what this succulent is called... comments welcome (as well as for all the other what-is-this-called images ^_^;)

Onion pods

I'd never seen onion flower pods before... I thought they were the most alien looking flower I'd seen.

Many onions

Many onion pods!

Missing birds...

This picture requires some explanation: There were about a dozen birds hipping around eating these berries, and I thought it'd be nice to shoot them, so I snuck up, positioned the tripod, clicked my camera on and.. they all left, and didn't return for the 15 minutes I waited for them T_T

Dead or alive

I really like contrasts like this... a dead tree, but with masses of life crowding it. It'd make a nice postcard.

Unknown flower

I have no idea what this flower is, I would imagine some kind of lily but I just have not enough botanical knowledge, nor a flora.

Nice, bright, tigerlilies. No question.

Yellow dragonfly

A yellow dragon fly, shot at the dragonfly pond by simply setting up my tripod, hooking up a 300mm lens to my dSLR so it was effectively a 435mm lens, and waiting for a dragonfly to sit down. Voila ^_^

Red dragonfly

Shot in roughly the same manner as the yellow dragonfly.

Red dragonfly

The back of the red dragonfly... this one was quite aggressive, assailing other dragonflies left and right.

Dragonfly scene

I love dragonflies. They're just plain cool to look at.
