Yesterday's full moon rising

I saw this by chance yesterday evening when i passed the patio door and was quick enough to grab the camera and the 300mm lens.
I miss most of those moments or don't get the camera ready quick enough, but this time it worked fine :)

Lunch break

Nice sunny weather out there but a bit too windy. Anyway, at least two shots were useable.

Mason bees moving in

Insect macro season opened. I installed this bee hotel last year and after limited acceptance (okay, i was a bit late), it looks much better this year. 1 tube is already fully inhabited, at least 3 others show activity.

So it's time to remove dust from the old Novoflex bellows plus 105mm macro head and dare some first shots.

Carpenter bee (23-Aug-2015)

I have seen them the first time this year and wondered what those "black bumblebees" are. A quick search revealed it. There were many of them during the summer, always around those everlasting peas.

And another insect next to my patio. I saw those the first time this year, i assume they are carpenter bees.

Hard to photograph, they don't like photographers coming too close, so i couldn't use my favorite macro lens. But at least the Olympus M.Zuiko 75-300 was okay to have a closer look at those nice creatures at the computer and find out what species they are.
