Little visitors in our garden in May

Our garden has a lot of little visitors as we don’t use any chemicals. We certainly don’t like slugs because they know exactly our favorite flowers and eat them up first, and they don’t have any natural enemies.  But all the other little critters are welcome. I usually take a walk in the evening with my camera, two close-up lenses and a magnifying glass to look for these little visitors. Right now, when the flowers start to bloom, it’s really wonderful to look at all the changes every day. Look how nice the little fluffy butterfly is hanging in the columbine. How must it feel to be a little snail being embraced by the petals of peony flower? The ant is climbing-up another peony like on a mountain. So come for a little walk with me to our garden…

  2. I share your fascination with the insects in the garden, Mitza, though I have less success than you with photographing them. I love peonies so it is a love/hate feeling to see the little snails in them.

  3. That was a brilliant idea to combine the beautiful flowers with their little visitors. I always say to my wife (we both love photography) that it takes a photographer to see the things, which other people normally don’t see. Excellent job, dear Mitza!

    • Thank you for your kind words, dear Peter. It’s not so easy to do these photos without tripod, but as I never drink alcohol, I have a steady hand:) Have a nice, sunny day, kind regards Mitza
