Orange tip

    The last few days, I am looking for the Orange tip  butterfly, (Oranjetipje), (Anthocharis cardamines)
    to make photo's.
    Mostly early in the morning they sit on the Bittercress, Cuckooflower, (Cardamin Pratensis), (Pinksterbloem).
    When it is early you can find them still sleeping. so that it is easy to make a photo.
    I did not find them yet.
    I do see them flying round some hours later, but they never sit still...always busy and going here and there hopping from one flower to another.
    Instead I made some photos of the flowers.

Explosion of buds

It looks as if all the buds have decided to pick one day to explode.
As if they all tweeted each other....'Today is the day!'
'Yes we pick today'...(and some thought it was yesterday)
I was amazed that all the bare branches, suddenly have a cloud of green all around them.
Everywhere I look, the greens are popping out.

Blue-tits nesting

The blue-tits decided to take the house near my window.
I have a great sight on the building of the nest.
I saw them bring in straws, moss and feathers.
I even gave them some Fluffy-hair for extra softness.

Unicorn 01

This is Unicorn.
He lives in the pond.
I don't see him very much, because he is most of the time hiding under the water.
Sometimes he shows up and says 'Hi!'
