I shot the image some days ago with my point and shoot camera but I had some luck because the fly on the wall didn´t react well when I came closer with my camera. Not sure what was wrong with this fly because they do usually escape if you are too close and you know what kind of reaction they have. But this fly was very slow maybe ill, so that I was able to take this close-up shot with my digital camera. I like this image anyhow. It´s a good one for my insects photo collection.

I shot the photo above some weeks ago when I was in Salem to have a barbecue. I found many ants there and really liked it, when I saw an ant that carried another one.

I wrote several times about Salem here on my blog and this place is near Ratzeburg and Mölln. Or in other words, round about 30 kilometers south from Lübeck where we live. There is a lot of untouched nature in the area of Salem and you can find all kind of animals and insects there and sometimes you do really wonder what you find. I was not there … Continue reading What Kind Of Insect Is This?
True, there are already several Ladybug photos on my blog and photos of other insects. But I really like them as they are photo subjects for the springtime or summer, so that I can´t make enough photos of them. It´s also a little bit more easy to find them, compared to find other animals. I like the photos above. Continue reading Ladybug On The White Wall
