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.

Fresh blossoms every day.

We meanwhile have something that can be called summer here in Germany, and i see this flower next to the patio every day. In the morning, there always are some fresh blossoms and with the heat of the day, they fade until afternoon. Repeating every day.

Beautiful nature.

Thanks, +eileen willacy. Didn't look it up yet, but the German name for it (Nachtkerze) sounded familiar.
