I haven’t seen the green species before. I’m not sure whether these are all the same species or different ones.
Geelong And Surrounds
Last year, mum and I went to view the black bat flower at the botanical gardens. Mum loves the bat flowers. I’m kinda nonchalant, but really enjoy exploring the conservatory. It’s brilliant for black and white photography.
This time, we went to visit the white bat flower. Unfortunately, we visited towards the end of it’s flowering and it wasn’t looking the best.
Mum and I were gushing over the plant when this woman told us that there was a green one nearby. She was so lovely, showed us her photos and helped us find it. We also found what looks like bananas.
These are the other photos I took on my first visit to St Helens with the Olympus TG 6.
I also didn’t realize that botryllus and botrylloides are two different genus until the above ascidian was identified. Marine life identification definitely surpasses all my other interests in terms of difficulty – and confusion!
I recently bought an Olympus TG6. I had been going through my old marine life photos and was frustrated with the image quality. Most of them had been taken with my phone because my klutzy self doesn’t want to take an expensive DSLR near water. Many would turn out blurry and I wasn’t able to get the detail I wanted with some of the smaller critters.
Mum and the family invited me to St Helens last night to test it out. I AM IN LOVE! Mum is in love with lightbulb ascidians, so I got as many photos of them as I could. I’m so impressed with the image quality. Some are slightly out of focus, but that is to be expected when you are lying across a boat ramp on your stomach with your camera in the water.
I’m so excited to see what photos I can get in the future. This is opening up a world of possibilities.
