As this blog mentioned, on 13 August 2017 we saw the carnivorous plants exhibition in the botanical garden in Leiden. Outside the exhibition hall were interesting plants as well. Like this Drynaria pleuridioides, which is a species from Asia, and other fern species in one of the hothouses.
All photos in this blog post are macro lens photos.
Another species in the hothouses was Asian as well; an orchid, not a fern: Bulbophyllum medusae.
Among other orchids in the hothouses were Trichoglossis geminata and Dendrobium bracteosum.
Yet another species in the hothouses was not a plant at all, but an insect: giant prickly stick insects from Australia were still present.
Outside, there was a small pond in the Chinese garden. Sacred lotus growing there.
With sacred lotus flowers …
sacred lotus ex-flowers …
and sacred lotus buds.
A bit further, a speckled wood butterfly.
We went back from the botanical garden, and saw some birds. So, stay tuned!
