Blues








Early morning before the sun would break out, I went down to the fields to find the butterflies.
I could not find any, maybe because the flowers had all faded because of the dry season.
When I walked back, my eye suddenly fell on a small group of, at least ten butterflies, waiting to have their wings dry enough to be able to take their wings.
It was such a enchanting moment to see these ten or more butterflies sitting so close to each other on a square meter.

Black beetle





On my way for a walk with a friend, we found on our path several black beetles also walking there.
One was just trying to go on the wings and you could see movement in the underwings, like a kind of trembling.
A moment later he was gone.
A little further there was one lying on his back...not alive anymore.
His colours were briljant from deep purple ultramarine blues and deep magenta.
later I found out his name:
Dung-beetle, Mestkever or Geotrupidae.

Whirligig beetle




Last saturday I visited with a friend a place where there was a great pond.
I had seen another time, that there were these running beetles on the water,
so I took my camera with me.
In dutch they are named 'Writers' Schrijvertjes, as if they are writing on the surface of the water.
I also like the english name Whirligig beetle..whirling and twirling on the water....

Hole-cutter











I've been intrigued by finding out that there lives a Hole-cutter in my garden.
Everywhere I look he has cut some holes in the leaves in various shapes and forms.
He seems to like only the soft greens and not so much the more crusty hard nerve of the leaves.
Like I loved to eat the bread and leave the crusts on my plate.
I love his artistic forms in all variations
