Today's Flower #138: Taipei Floral Expo

I have shown the Taipei International Floral Exposition a while ago.  With the Spring arriving and the weather is getting better.  I went to the Expo once again.

This time rather than the usual zoom lens, I brought with me my 105 mm macro lens.  The type of flower in the Expo also changed.  There are a lot of mass planted Dahlia.

The weather was really sunny, I have to put my subject shaded in my shadow in order to get good shots. The temperature is close to the summer temperature in Northeast of America, thus most flowers are colorful annuals. 

I have a good time to get a lot of close-up shots. 

With the lens, I can get really close.  The is a Johnney-Jump Up.

This is one place I will go, may be if they have it next year.

Thanks for your comment on my chapter of my book.

This book is the journey of my life.

When my great grand pa and grandpa left China to Sarawak, they brought their Chinese Culture.

It is interesting if you can identify some of them.

I did have a Taiwanese woman who read part of the book, and she wishes I can get it translated to Chinese. She said, this was something the Taiwanese would read.

Thanks again.
