The following beauties were all photographed at Vancouver's Bloedel Conservatory last week.
The conservatory contains three habitats: tropical rainforest, subtropical rainforest, and desert. Over 200 birds of various species reside within the dome and are allowed to fly free.
|I love the deep, rich colours in these plants.|
The Bloedel Floral Conservatory houses about 500 species and varieties of plants from deep jungle to desert clime, all within the dome. The conservatory is home to Bougainvilleas and Browallias, citrus and coffee trees, Eucalypti and epiphytes, Euphorbia and various figs, Gardenia and Hibiscus. Magnolia trees share space with delicate lilies, yucca with pteris (ferns).
|Perhaps you can just make out the waterfall beyond the palm fronds.|
Also on display are an array of tropical fish.

If you missed my post about the macaws and cockatoo at the Conservatory, you might want to have a look here.
Today I'm joining in with host Eileen at Saturday's Critters.
