OK - here's the drill - Moz is not a pro photographer. Heck, Moz isn't even an amateur photographer. Moz is just indulging jemima and angel - both had some conversation with me about flowers.
angeliu asked me about Sydney's Botanical Gardens - whether there was actually any flowers in there. Yes, angeliu, have flowers. Even in winter. And more so now when it's nearer to spring, which seemed to have arrived early this year.
jemima wanted Aussie wildlife photos. Can't do that jemima - with my pitiful 3x zoom lens, if I get any closer to animals, I'll probably be blogging from a hospital very soon. I don't want that ;-P. So, as a middle ground, I'm putting up flowers instead.
These are all taken at the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney, just a stone's throw away from the Opera House.
I have no idea what most of these flowers are, so only commentaries. Click to get bigger pictures, ok? If you'd like a larger sized photo, drop me a mail.

This plant is not native to Australia - it's South African in origin, and it's got a very strong fragrance - much like lemongrass.
These chrysanthemums look full of movement. Or are they sunflowers? See, told you I'm bad at flowers.
Fruit bats getting their hours of sun on tree tops in Sydney's Royal Botanical Gardens. It wasn't even close to being creepy, unlike what you might imagine. Heck, they look cute. Really.
I must have seen this in Malaysia - not sure what it's called, but I don't mind having one of these at home.
