    Did you manage to get a CZ/EF adaptor to play with also? How is it?

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    Lechythis ollaria - Monkey Pot Tree

    this tree is a relative of the Brazil Nut, and produces oily seeds which monkeys will eat when the "lid" of the fruit drops off (see close-up of the right hand fruit).



    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Podocarpus neriifolius - Podo Bukit, Mountain Teak

    this one has a curious fruiting structure looking similar to the Cashew Nut.

    Cheers,

    yes I got an china-made adaptor, doesn't look very good and I suspect focusing to infinity is not achieved properly. need to get one of those german ones, but very hard to find and very expensive.

    if you look at the EXIF of the images, those whose aperture are shown as "0.0" are shot with the CZ.

    How about Saga Seeds Tree?

    Did you notice any of such trees at the Botanic Gardens?

    This tree drops those red seeds which used to be all over the place but nowadays seldom we see any.

    Have. Bishan -AMK park...traffic junction right after AMK Ave 6 towards Marymount road ..the trees are on that side of the park where's there's Macdonald.

    No idea about Botanic garden, I don't go there, it is crazy packed on weekends. Moreover it's a small park. I don't see the reason when Bishan-AMK park is a giant park.
