Emergent and unexpected. I prefer natural forests and those where there is an effort to preserve natural design rather than curated botanical gardens, which are like museums for living plants. While they offer many photographic opportunities, natural forests and fields are more likely to provide surprises, contrast, chaos and the unusual. In the natural forest things do not necessarily follow the calendar as much as the weather, but curated gardens seem to operate on a calendar of when things must be done. In photography as in many other arts, the unexpected makes the finished project stand out.

  2. That is a nice contrast between the new bud and the fully opened flower.
    Some botanical gardens try to replicate a more natural setting. They do this by establishing gardens on a region basis. One where my wife had a 3 month residency is in Taichung, Taiwan. They made an effort to recreate the various ecosystem in Taiwan. Here is the link to their website http://www.nmns.edu.tw/nmns_eng/04exhibit/permanent/BotanicalGarden/Explore/Gardens.htm

    • Thanks I had a look. There are a number of attempts to do that I applaud it because it gives people a sense of what things look like and feel like.
