Living in an urban jungle where the natural beauty of nature is scarce, it has become a practice for me to frequent parks and wildlife sanctuaries to get close to nature, where I can fill my lungs with fresh air, and feast my eyes on cheerful little birds flying above my head.
One of my favorite parks to visit is the Montreal Botanical Garden where I am allowed the opportunity to photograph flowers and plants even during a nasty winter storm, thanks to the greenhouses which are usually open all year round.
The delicate flowers of Begonia | ISO – 1600 | 90 mm @ f/4 | 1/180 sec
The not-so-delicate Golden Barrel cactus | ISO – 1600 | 90 mm @ f/4 | 1/125 sec
Today’s post is my entry to the Weekly Photo Challenge where the current theme is “Delicate”. Head on over to the Daily Post for more of these entries, or to participate to the challenge.
