Toggling around a little bit

Some images of the garden, Cruysbergen near Bussum and a not expected encounter with an oil platform at Hoek van Holland and some ships and a Herring Gull, which wasn’t afraid 🙂 AND of course the reason why sheep are such a bad way to maintain nature… they eat averything as shown here an iris. This was taken in Cruysbergen, a special nature reserve….

More ships and platforms at (and a lot more images of course.

Dintelse Gorzen, South-west Netherlands

A day shooting in the south-west of the Netherlands, Dintelse Gorzen, a nature reserve owned by Natuurmonumenten near Steenbergen, Noord Braband. Cows, horses, orchids (only one kind found flowering, canadian geese, not loved by Natuurmonumenten, hooverfly and midges. And at the way back, near Dinteloord an old-timer rally… and a nice chat with another old-timer 🙂

Cevennes, France, orchid heaven

A short break in the Cevennes, in the south of France looking around with a brand-new Crossbill guide to see if this is really an orchid heaven.. it is! And a lot more of course. Here some of the orchids I found and some of them are very difficult to name. Bee-orchid, yellow orchid, passion-tide orchid, early purple orchid, elder orchid , men orchid… and some butterflies, a very special toadstool, iris chamaeiris, praying mantis, Pont du Gard, tree-frog and flamingo’s in the Camargue, Allium roseum, Tulipa sylvestris ssp australis… and a lot more that I will put in my database site at Photoshelter
