T189 Photo-A-Week 2012, Weekly Alphabet Challenge, week 27 "N is for Nature"
One of the hornbills which frequent our neighbourhood was so kind to
stop by our garden and pose in full view this morning, sitting on a
low branch of our jambu ayer tree, our garden is just a little strip
of land but apparently a magnet for all kinds of wildlife. These birds
were thought to be extinct in Singapore but there seem to be more of
them every year. There were 3 in our garden this morning. They are
usually difficult to snap as they are shy and prefer the higher
branches of trees.
The palms in the background are Lipstick or Red Sealing Wax Palms (Cyrtostachys lakka) in the neighbours' garden.
