MARCH 2007: White threads
Early 2007, my faithful Sony camera failed to work, and I had to buy a new one: a Canon. In March 2007, I visited various parks in Belo Horizonte in order to test my camera. I went to the Municipal Park, Mangabeiras Park, the local Zoo and Botanical Garden, and the Ecological Park. The latter is located near the Zoo, and is part of Lake Pampulha, the large artificial lake not far from the Mineirão soccer stadium. Parque Ecológico hosts a variety of trees, plants, flowers, and animals. A large part is an ecological reserve, and only accessible for scientists, or by appointment. The smaller part is publicly accessible, from Thursday through Sunday. Many families enjoy their time by walking, cycling, playing with kites, or playing soccer. Others, like me, prefer to look around for natural beauties. Like this flower with numerous white thin threads that caught my attention.
