Today there were lots of Dragonflies at the childrens farm. So it was photographing time 🙂
Lean on, balance yourself for the act. Just as the dragonfly easily balances itself on a branch, i had to balance myself and lean over a little beech hedge to get this shot. At first i was not too happy that the dragonfly had moved from a ‘better’ spot, but seeing the shot with the leaves out of focus actually creates quite a nice atmosphere 🙂 Well, at least that’s what i see in it lol
Last week suddenly these beetles came out of nowhere and utilized the grass. Have no clue what kind of beetle this is, but i could get a nice close-up shot as one was resting on the mint plant. Pretty cool looking beetle 🙂
This little beetle is enjoying the Mint plant just as much as i do 🙂 Although it prefers fresh leaves over tea
This one was hanging on to a leave in the back garden. Impressive from up close
Still use the first camera once in a while, its a small compact camera (Canon Powershot 470). Really great for macro photography. So probably should get a macro lens to have a bit of fun 🙂 As the temperature is rising, soon insects will start to flourish again. And that means that the dragons will also show up again. These images were shot in the garden, and the dragonfly you see is a Common Darter. Played a bit with colors and black and white for this result
As i mentioned before, there are quite a lot of spiders in my garden. This one is the biggest at the moment with it’s body being roughly 2cm in length. I can’t get a picture of the top of the spider, so instead i focused on its body. Pretty amazing to see up close!
ps. in the original situation, the spider was hanging upside down, but for viewers convenience i’ve turned the spider upside down and mirrored the image
