Botanic Garden

Today I went to the botanical garden, it's been a while since I was there. And a lot had happened since last time, the flowers that bloomed last was almost completely gone now. but instead there is a lot of new species.
But it was a bit tricky to get the pictures today, partly because of the bright sunlight and then it blew a lot. And it did not help that I had the macro lens, because the slightest movement can create blurred images. But it was nice to go around there and see all the beautiful flowers and the quite squirrels. I saw something unusual today as well, namely the Water Boatman it's not in itself unusual, but I found it on dry land and it is a bit unusual for this insect is aquatic. They can fly, as they do usually at night when they travel between the waters. And this was pretty much about 15mm long, so it was nice to see one of those up close.
