    Macro Monday

    A small selection of photos taken here in Cyprus this November. Now I lied a bit, the image of the Painted Lady was taken in Malta in 2016. I included it because I’ve seen so many recently but haven’t managed to capture any yet. So what, time doesn’t matter anyway.

  • The Blue Dragonfly

    The Blue Dragonfly

    I still see dragonflies every day, either around the fish pond in our garden or when I’m walking my dogs here in Paphos. Most of the ones seen around the pond are red, but there is also a blue one. Could this be a Blue Dasher Dragonfly? Maybe not; it looks like it’s laughing. I…

    Feel free to click on an image in the gallery and the images will become larger. Perhaps not for those with a fear of spiders, but it is completely harmless I would also like to show you this long-legged green creature that I found in my garden.

    Macro Monday

    Yes, I know, I’ve been showing dragonflies recently but I see them daily while walking my dogs and can’t resist photographing them.

Dels såg jag en stor spindel, ett par färgstarka blommor och flera trollsländor. Kommer man hem med drygt hundra bilder i kameran tar…

    Dragonflies – 2

    Today it has been raining all day here in Paphos so I chose some photos taken in August. Here in Cyprus, bad weather rarely lasts long, tomorrow we will surely feel the heat of the sun again. The beautiful beach in Argaka in the Paphos District of Cyprus not far from Polis where we lived our first three…

  • Dragonflies


    I don’t always carry my heavier camera with the macro lens when I walk my dogs but after seeing a lot of dragonflies lately I decide the camera has to come along. Here is a selection of the roughly 300 photos I took the other day. I read that the dragonfly is one of the…

  • Finding balance

    Finding balance

    “The key to finding a happy balance in modern life is simplicity.”— Sogyal Rinpoche Although the balance this dragonfly shows doesn’t look that simple. It’s been almost a year now since we left Malta and slowly but surely I’ve begun to find a certain balance in our new home. My dogs have already made themselves…
