How I got there.
The Friday ferry was booked - so I took the Thursday evening ferry - arriving about 9pm. Since there was little light, no photos from Nov 19 - but the morning of Nov 20 (Friday) was amazing. Mr Tjiagus has planted the pond near reception with lotus plants - something near and dear to my heart. Two years ago - there was a small lotus pond near the fence that disappeared for new construction and with the missing pond - was my missing these lovely plants and the insects that zoom in and out. Now they are back. Here is a blue lotus
And a cubist rendition of the flower. Wonder what this would look like if printed on canvas?
A lotus bug - but now I think this is a dragonfly nymph
Dragonfly nymph riding the lotus bud
A water bug
Reflections of a water bug
A lotus and a fly
A fishing boat - sort of deserted
A white flower - need to identify this
A white butterfly
I like this - sort of white on white
A red (I forgot)
And drops on a frangipani blossom
