Whilst in Mauritius we spent a few hours at Pamplemousses botanical garden. Of course, I did not want to lug the 300 2.8 around if all we were doing was looking at trees. But my other (better) half convinced me to take it, after all I had lugged half way around the globe (well, nearly). So I did and boy was I glad I did.

Not only have I never seen an Amazonian lilly pad, I have never seen a green-backed heron on an Amazonian lilly pad. Come to think of it I have never seen a green-back heron before.
