Tuesday’s mixed pics from Malta

These flowers got a shower and belongs to one of my favorite colors. So cute and a bit shaggy.Simple art on a bottle of wine can also be an art in itself.Another watercolor, this time with reflections from a house in Spinola Bay, San Ġiljan.

 

Monday’s mix from Malta

Watercolor in the Mediterranean Sea.A diligent visitor among our flowers.This flower doesn’t grow on our terrace and I don’t know what it’s called.

If everything goes as planned, we will go to Sweden in September to pick up our little puppy. Here you see our new family member born 13th July. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this will be reality, I´m so happy.

All pictures are taken by me except those on the puppy, taken by Marianne Gustavsson.

Sweet little insects…

When I take my macro lens out to the terrace and look for small insects among our flowers after I’ve watered. Then I feel satisfied, as are our plants and the sweet little insects.

Photo of the Day

I found this sweet little Dragonfly when we were at Piscopo Garden in Burmarrad to buy some new plants. There were lots of colorful flowers, but the Dragonfly seemed to prefer to hang on a stick.The wings were angled as if it tried to protect the body. I don´t know why but so it sat when I left…

Honungsbi / Honey Bee

Det här lilla biet flög runt bland våra Pelargoner en bra stund medan jag försökte fånga den med kameran. Ofta stannade den till i ett svävande tillstånd men bara för ett väldigt ett kort ögonblick.Slutligen valde den ut en blomma och kalasade en stund för att strax flyga vidare till nästa.

På sista bilden syns frömjöl som fastnat på ena benet. Tror det är pollen medan den samtidigt suger nektar. Kan inte låta bli att förundras över hur naturen skapat en sån fantastisk harmoni mellan växter och insekter, insekter som ofta anses vara anspråkslösa men ändå är så viktiga för att den naturliga processen ska fungera.

On the last picture, you can see pollen on the leg while the bee sucks nectar. Can`t stop wondering how nature created such an amazing harmony between plants and insects, Insects that are often considered unpretentious but still, so important for the natural process to work.

Ränderna går aldrig ur (141/365)

Tror det är ett Honungsbi tillhörande en art som troligtvis utvecklades i Medelhavsområdet för nära en miljon år sedan. Ränderna går aldrig ur denna enträgna lilla insekt som återigen ivrigt kalasar bland våra växter.
