2nd in the series. You can find the 1st here.

At Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. Several small birds would stand in the shade of the cactus, then fly up and peck the seeds off to eat. Prefocused on spot with a bit of cheating (slow burst mode). Some cropping.

The Jardin Majorelle as we know it today is roughly half the garden, created by Louis Majorelle in 1924. In the garden prominently you can see his painting studio, painted in a typical vivid cobalt blue, known as "Blue Majorelle". This blue colour is also used in more elements in the garden, for example the fountains, waterrills and pots. An important element in the garden is water, as it is in all Islamitic gardens. So you can find a square pool, containing waterlillies and lotus plants.

The plant collection in the garden is very famous. Louis Majorelle has imported a lot of plants from (sub)tropical areas all around the world. There is a dense vegetation of, for example, palmtrees, jaracandas, dragon trees, cypresses, dense grooves of bamboo, giant euphorbias, aloes and so on.

Hi Josh
