I like the Little Lion's Head Mountain pretty much. It has two favorite kinds of trails: dirt road and wooden stairs. Compared with some hiking trails' concrete stairs, it's more comfortable for me. And in the Little Lion's Head Mountain, many different kinds of flowers blossom in all seasons, many beautiful birds perch in the woods and cute squirrels sometimes reveal themself to hikers. At the second and third peak, hikers can enjoy really great scenic views, they can see AnKeng, QingTan and Bitan regions. The only drawback is the traffic noise from the foot of the mountain sometimes disturbing the sound of the nature.
The flower was common in my neighborhood when I was a kid, but I hadn't seen it for years. I saw it on the trail this morning and it was not just one plant but several plants of it. The flowers hanging down from branches formed beautiful decorations which resembles red and orange lanterns.
I finally took some decent photos of wild birds. This picture is a little bit out of focus, but it's not bad as I am a green photographer. I realised it's very difficult to take photos of wild birds. I could only hear them at very beginning but couldn't see them. I tried hard to locate them and when I found them and tried to adjust my lens, they flew to other branches or even dissapeared.
Compared with old Bitan Bridge 20 years ago, today's bridge is uglier.
The upper photo was taken with Nikon E2500, and I took photo of similar feature with Olympus SP-500UZ this morning. The new one is much better.
