Little visitors in our garden

Every evening I am taking a walk in our garden to make some macro photos. Going so close to the flowers I see a lot of insects and snails. Some of them are very useful and don’t do any harm to our flowers, but the slugs are always eating our most rare and beloved plants. And some shiny green beetles were behaving a bit indecent, which I beg to excuse. This post is only for viewers over 18 (just joking). Hope you enjoy my flowers in macro.

    • yes, maybe that’s some kind of Mercedes shell or Rolls Royce, hehe. I knew you would like the insects, Thomas. Thanks for commenting and have a nice day, regards Mitza


  1. Great photos πŸ™‚ And I love your sense of humour! πŸ™‚
    I can’t take photos as close up as you, but I did notice aphids on my rose buds when I looked at my photos after, which I couldn’t see by eye.
    You have captured many interesting insects. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you for your kind words of approval and thanks for liking my humor, which is exactly quite black. Regarding photographing flowers I take two close lenses and a magnifier which I hold in front of my camera. Then you get really close. Aphids on roses are not nice. Try to find a ladybug.

  2. Wow next time you’re misbehaving check to see if there’s a giant aiming a macro lens at you πŸ™‚ You did manage to make them look like jewels, Mitza. I love the orange snail on the pink and green. You have some great composition there. My orchard is still a scene of devastation after the storm hit Sydney last weekend.


  3. Lovely macro photography, Mitza! Sometimes one needs to focus on the very small. There is a wonderful world waiting to be discovered. Not to worry about the over 18 photos in the animal kingdom. I once took a picture of two ladybugs in quite a suggestive position. There is a murderous heat wave over BC, My wife and I went swimming in the icy waters of the Arrow Lake just to cool off a little. Greetings to sunny Hamburg!

    • Thanks for your kind words, Peter. Hope you post your photos, too. Wow, going to swim in icy waters is something I wouldn’t even do in a heat-wave. I prefer water from 27 degrees C upwards. We had a real tempest yestereday and even a tornado not far away. Greetings to Canada, Mitza

    • Seems, we have the same slugs. Our marigolds were stripped, too. But I’m happy inspite of this devastation you liked my shots, have a nice day, regards Mitza


    • You are completely right. I must honestly admit that I’m not a fan of insects but when I look at some of these animals I find them quite attractive and they are all part of our creation and have a sense.

    • Danke, Jule. Ich find es lustig, wie die Leute drauf reagieren. Ich verstehe nicht, warum Dein neuer blog hier nicht erscheint. Ich schau gleich mal. Gruß Mitza
