A trip to the Botanic Gardens

Today the whole Primary 6 level in my school went to the
Botanic Gardens for a picnic. While most of my friends
were more interested in the picnic, I was more interested
in the nature surrounding us. It started with two pigeons.
They flew over to the lake and started eating the vegetation.
Then two Lesser Whistling Ducks swam over. There is a
photo of one below.

Then the swans came, two at first, but later three others
joined in. Below are three photos I took of the swans.
A sea hibiscus fell near the water.
When we finished our picnic, we headed to the
Jacob Ballas Children's' Garden.
There is so much to do there!
Below is a photo I took of a flower there. I'm not
sure what type it is, though.
Here's a Violet water lily...
...And a male Olive-backed sunbird
If you happen to know what flower that was,
please comment.
