morning walk in the garden

in Photo-essay10 months ago (edited)

Good day ,

Today i went out into the garden armed with two cameras, two flashllights and two differend lenses .


This is my contribution to the #wednesdaywalk by @tattoodjay .

I spotted this tiny bee in the back of the garden sitting on a grass leaf it was still a bit cold so i summed it was resting or warming up , until i noticed something in the second photo

It looked like it had laid an egg , a strange place for a bee like that normaly they lay their eggs in the ground or in hollow stems. So i was surprised to see this on a grass leaf. After that the bee took off and i lost sight of it.

While i was looking for that tiny bee i did spot this little damselfy , the downside of this macro lens is the thin line of things you can get in focus in one shot, yes you could use a tripod with automated focus stacking equipment but that is not my thing.
Ischnura elegans / Blue-tailed damselfly / Lantaarntje

after i scared it off it moved to the verbena flowers , this damselfly is only +/- 30mm long not really big but too big to fit in one frame when you use 2.5 magnification .

And then it moved on again this timeit hang on to grass leaf

i had time for one more shot and off it went.

Then i spotted this little one sitting on one of my scabiosa flowers

didn't look to happy probably because of the cold it didn't move

it remained very calm while i was taking pictures of it

and nope it's to big to fit completly in the picture with 2.5 magnification

but for a portrait shoot it is just fine

Time to switch cameras ...

Dipsacus fullonum / wild teasel / Kardebol flower bud , I bought this one last year and now it's almost 2 meters high already , the benefit is that i has a nice flower and in winter birds will eat the seeds and after that you can dry it and use it for decoration.

another poppy as a result of seeding wildflowers in the garden.

Echinops / kogeldistel still not fllowering wont be long , another flower that i hope to be able to dry after it has flowerd.

and then i spotted that the small shrub roses started to flower... fun fact i bought them both as white roses , they don't look that white to me .
This one is harder on the pink colout while the other one is a bit softer on the pink.

These rose flowers are 20mm in diameter so they are not that big

Beautiful captures. Lucky you do get a few shots before they take off 😎
Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the afternoon 👋🏻😊

early morning in the cold they are still slow like a sloth

Aha… that makes sense. 🤓

Oh, you still have the word brilliant on your program! Such a stunning shot of the poppies with snapdragons in the back. I remember you telling me how they are like slugs moving as it is brisk in the morning, a great tip for us who are looking to capture shots of insects.

Thanks for the beauty you shared!

thank you for stopping by Denise , yeah i'm happy to have some poppies again in the garden , but we could also use some rain in the garden again :)

I could send you some, but, I think our April showers that bring May flowers are on hiatus!

Well, those guns you took into the garden shot very well, but only because there was a great sensitivity behind them. I'm a fan of macro photography. It always captivates me.
And so do you think that's an egg, because I understand they do that in honeycombs. Maybe she didn't have time to get to the poor thing.

!PIZZA

i'm still in doubt , waiting on confirmation from people that actually know the real deal it's just that the before and after picture makes it look like it. I enjoy taking macro photos a lot it's that time of the day that your mind is with nothing else but those things you see through the lens.

I imagine so, I can't because I don't have the equipment for that. Maybe someday... hey, by the way, I like the yellow essay thing hahaha... sounds interesting that. I've already been thinking about something to show.

you are welcome to participate until Saturday 0:00 am GMT+2 , looking forward to your 5 photos and 150 words . Good equipment for macro is a must to get these results and a lot of practice too :)

i like how the picture looks very detailed..the first photo is very good for the cover image..wasps are one of my favorites on the photo macro theme.

Thank you , but that is a bee not a wasp :) the deatils are baecause of the lens and camera i use and a lot of practice.

what I mean is bees, maybe it's wrong in translation..sory🙏😊
