Singapore Flyer: A pumpkin for Halloween

I drive pass this magnificent Singapore Flyer
almost everyday and it always amazes me.

The Singapore Flyer, reaches 42 stories high
and the wheel is 150m (492ft) in diameter.
It exceeds the Star of Nanchang by 5m (16ft)
and the London Eye by 30m (98ft).
Each of the 28 air-conditioned capsule is capable of holding 28 passengers
and a complete rotation of the wheel takes approximately 30 minutes.

One morning,
I saw this bright orange balloon on it and wondered what it was.

Going around it, there was a face on the balloon.
It's a 'PUMPKIN' for the Halloween.
Nice of them to take the trouble to put the pumpkin, all the way up there.
Just to celebrate Halloween.
It doesn't look like an easy task.
Halloween is an international holiday celebrated on October 31.
Halloween is a celebration of tricks, costumes, parties, bonfires,
scary stories and movies.
Ghost and haunting.
Not forgetting the PUMPKIN

The good looking and funny birds...amazing birds at the Bird Park

These birds are so cute and charming.
I enjoyed watching them.

These two were chatting for quite a while.
Till one tried to get too close.
See what happened in the video below.

Take note of the cheeky one.
Opps! Got too close, too heavy, it fell of the branch.

This shy one was hiding its face.

Revealed! it's really quite a handsome looking duck.

This handsome guy barks like a puppy and not quacks.

I thought this 'chick' was dead but it's actually sleeping.
It got up suddently and went chasing after the Scarlet Ibis.
The security guard.

This one was patrolling up and down while I was there.
It looked like it's the security bird for the pond.

It will stroll back down and up again repeatedly.

Scarlet Ibis........ red,red,red, at the Bird Park

I was bird watching
The red, red, red colour of these birds were so bright.
They captivated me from afar...

This video shows them fishing.

Awesome birds at the Bird Park

Rare and awesome.
This large Owl.
Look at those big round eyes.

and perky ears that was hidden earlier.

This Saddle-Billed Stork can almost double its height when it stands up.


Sits like a dog.

Ostrich is the biggest and tallest living bird.

Throat vibration.

Pelicans at the Bird Park

I admire these lovely birds and the freedom they have in their territories.
'Free as a bird.'
There are many breeds of birds.
Each kind having their own characteristics.
Like these Pelicans.
Known for their beaks, which they fill with gulps of water,
straining out the liquid and eating the remaining fish or squid.
Is remarkable.
This is a  shot of them cleaning themselves.
Observed how thorough...
