AsianScientist (Mar. 5, 2012) – Singapore may be a well-known cosmopolitan city in the East, but large swaths of greenery remain. These nature reserves maintained by the Singapore National Parks (NParks) are testimony to the country’s focus on preserving its “green lungs” and keeping the country livable… and breathable.

These bird pictures were taken at the Singapore Botanical Gardens, Kent Ridge Park, and Sungei Buloh Nature Reserve.

Photos were taken with either a Nikon D80 DSLR or Olympus E-PL2 micro four-thirds camera. Lenses used were the Nikon AF-S 105mm f/2.8 VR Micro-Nikkor lens and AF-S Nikkor 300mm f/4D IF-ED lens with AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E-II.
