🐝 Eines meiner ersten Makros vor ein paar Jahren.
Diese Hummel hier ist eine Steinhummel (Bombus lapidarius). Die Königin wird bis zu 22mm lang. Steinhummeln leben in Mauern oder in Steinhaufen. 🏆
2005 war die Steinhummel das Insekt des Jahres.

I wish all of you the best of luck in any challenge that you may face.

And to strengthen that, have a #toadstool between a lot of #clover. Although I know it's only 3 leaves and not the 'lucky' 4, but I don't think that's an issue. 😄

We had ELEVEN King Parrots on the veranda this morning. Quite a lot of young ones in the flock.
Eventually a couple of the more canny ones went around the back to the feeder (I was feeding the ones out the front on the floor).

Here's one of the males.


An Ancyra Blue (Catopyrops ancyra) spotted at Kranji Marshes, Singapore, on 9 Jan 2022. Not as often seen compared to other members of the blue butterflies (subfamily Polyommatinae).

These butterflies are known as 'Blues' because of their blueish upperwings, which can be seen in the image.

Close-up of a Common Parasol (Neurothemis fluctuans) spotted at Kranji Marshes on 9 Jan 2022. A non-mature male, I believe, as the wings are not yet a brilliant red.

The Common Parasol is a very common dragonfly.

A Slender Squirrel (Sundasciurus tenuis) spotted outside the Wallace Education Centre, Dairy Farm Nature Park, Singapore, on 14 Jan 2022. It scampered up and down the tree, paying no attention to me.

The caterpillar of a Sumatran Sunbeam (Curetis saronis) butterfly spotted at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore, on 15 Jan 2022. It looked like a tiny knob at the end of a twig until I took a closer look.

A Lichen Huntsman Spider (genus Pandercetes) spotted in the toilet at Wallace Education Centre, Dairy Farm Nature Park, Singapore, on 14 Jan 2022. Also spotted an unfamiliar ant and a large katydid in there. :-)

A Striped Bronzeback (Dendrelaphis caudolineatus) spotted at Dairy Farm Nature Park, Singapore, on 14 Jan 2022. It raised its head when I saw it, then vanished into the undergrowth after taking these shots.

Bronzeback snakes are non-venomous.

More glittery hoar frost on leafs. Such a lovely morning in late December.
Only had half an hour before work so these were shot around the parking lot. Went inside the building afterwards. Only to meet a colleague who asked if I had "noticed a big black thing lying in the grass next to your car? The boss wanted to ask if someone needed help". 🙈
And this, enbys, ladies and gentlemen, is why we don't do #macrophotography in populated areas.

Der Turmfalke überblickt sein Reich....


Falken haben ja ein bisschen was von Sittichen, finde ich....

These #paintings are the first in a series, where I am attempting to avoid deliberately posing and placing the animals in a composition. Usually we compose animals in scenes for aesthetic reasons, and avoid confessing angles or poses. Obscuring parts (particularly heads and eyes) is nearly always avoided. What if I try to purge those rules? Will a new sort of naturalism develop?
