Waking around with the macro lens may frighten you sometimes. But this monster here is just a leftover shell and...
... normally it hangs at the leaves of the water lilly. A dragon fly has hatched from it, but the dragon fly is too fast for me to photograph.
Huuuarg... I nearly dropped my camera.
But it is only a little beettle. In German it is called a Holzkäfer, I couldn't find the English translation, sorry.
Have a look into Flips eyes. I'm really happy to be a little bit bigger than those little monsters.
At the moment a lot of those sweet little guys are jumping around in my garden. Look at the little oxalis leaf in the background, then you can guess how small this little frog is. It is sitting on a hosta leaf that was destroyed from snails *grmpf*.
Beauty or beast ?
Come on little butterfly, show us your beautiful wings.
And this European Peacock isn't shy at all. It even shakes its tiny hand with me. Okay, I promise you, that this buddleja may grow forever in my garden.
Not very happy was this little bird with me. It scolded at me to have brought the little red monster so close to it. Noah, leave this bird in peace!
Because of the last post, Andrea wanted to know with what I attract the butterflies. I don't use any pesticides in my garden and I chose plants that butterflies love, for example buddleja, lysimachia clethroides, lavender, echinops, linaria angustissima. It doesn't need much to make a butterfly happy.
This is my bedroom window view before a heavy thunderstorm messed it up.
After the storm our lawn looked like in fall. Luckily from next week on I've got holidays and will have time to tidy my garden a little bit and its time to trim the hedges.
Ehm, I guess Noah understood only window... and bed...:o). Doesn't he look like a real angel. But don't be fooled, he can very quickly change into a monster.
Habt es fein. / Have a great time.
