Nap time

Disclaimer: 潭 doesn’t mean soup, but the pronunciation is very similar. I find the use of the term “soup” to be highly entertaining for my brain, and so that lake shall mbe called Dragon Soup Lake.

I need a longer lens

It’s a relatively small lake in the North-West are of Yilan. it’s a fairly short trip, so I decided not to make a new phlog. My previous one is dedicated to Triangle Mountain:

Not today

We’re still in winter so flowers and interesting bugs are hard to find. This lake during summer is crowded with massive spiders the size of my hands, though I doubt I’ll be able to get close enough to take a closeup picture of them.

These small(er) spiders are everywhere in this period of the year. Looks like they’re doing a good job at keeping the mosquitoe population low.

Luckily, not my glasses. Someone left them by the side of a walkaway, probably broken after dropping them from the bicycle. All around the lake there’s a cycling path.

I definitely need to get a longer lens because 70mm for birds in flight is abysmal, but I’ll probably have to wait until the end of February or the beginning of March. I’m aiming for the Canon 70-300 L and that packs a punch on the wallet.
