Jay, blackbirds and tadpoles in the botanical garden


Jay, 25 April 2014

We were still in the botanical garden on 25 April 2014. As I wrote, near where the brook flows into the carp pond. Pondskaters in the brook there. And a beautiful jay on a tree.

Later, it sat down among the flowers close to the waterfall.

In a small pond for yellow water lilies in the systemic garden, tadpoles, as small as those in the big carp pond.

When we returned to the debouchment of the brook, the carp was gone, but the tadpoles were still there.

Near the astronomical buildings, a robin singing.

In the Victoria amazonica hothouse, a blue morpho flying away from a feeder. A warden tells us that tropical butterflies were brought here a few weeks ago. At first, there was trouble with mice eating butterflies just hatched from the pupa phase, when they don´t fly yet.

In a tropical aquarium, wrestling halfbeak fish. And Atyopsis moluccensis freshwater shrimp.

Some leaves on trees looked superficially like autumn, though it is spring.
