Picture was taken on Lantau Island in a rocky gorge. It has not been observed in wild in Hong Kong very often.
The third image is of a small reservoir in the same gorge. It reminded me of the Marina Bay Sands hotel roof which has a swimming pool. But looks so absurd. This looks better :P

Superb pics ... the second pic shows the flowers glassy...the habitat is equally beautiful...
Great Photo and nice write up ... Now we are also getting to know about South China flora because of you. That reservoir is really beautiful.
This is what I was comparing the reservoir pics with. The Marina Bay Sand hotel pics. Sorry for posting, irrelevant pics!!
