    Meet a Grasshopper

    I have grasshoppers in my garden. There’s nothing strange about that. Who cares about a grasshopper? But they are, in fact, interesting creatures. Grasshoppers are a group of insects belonging to the suborder Caelifera. They are among what is possibly the most ancient living group of chewing herbivorous insects, dating back to the early Triassic,…

    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. But I assure that the dragonflies you’ve seen before are not the same ones you see here. Although they may appear similar, each one is unique in its own way. Here, I have…

    Bara Några Bilder

    De senaste dagarna har kameran fått följa med när hundarna och jag gått vår dagliga promenad. Det är inte så varmt ute nu som det brukar vara i augusti, runt 30 grader och ett och annat moln.

    I saw Another One

    These amazing insects. I saw a Macaronius Owlfly last spring, shortly after that, I saw another one. Thought you’d get to see it too. Surely no one can believe that these insects can be harmful?

    Look at This One!

    I’ve never seen this insect until a few days ago, after searching I guess it’s a Macaronius Owlfly. A fascinating little find, isn’t it! Below is another one I haven’t come across before, I think it might be a Green Forester Moth. It’s amazing how much there is to discover in the world of insects,…

    There’s a lot of activity among insects in nature. Most so small that they can be hard to spot.It’s a fascinating world out there and so much to discover, but you have to look closely. “An insect is more complex than a star..and is a far greater challenge to understand.” – Martin Rees Koili –…

    It always brings a feeling of happiness and joy when I manage to capture a butterfly with my camera and this time it was double happiness when I got two in one. Certainly they are beauties created by nature I was also very happy when I managed to capture this one, although the background is…
