Introduction
I'm a photography enthusiast living on the island of Crete, in Greece. I've studied Computer Science and work as a Software Developer in the Telecom sector, but I've recently discovered a passion for photography. I'm especially fond of nature macrophotography.

It's orchid season again in Crete, Greece and I was able to find 14 different species on a fieldtrip on Sunday! Looks like this Anacamptis collina was trying to scare me off, though :)

A pair of Common Darters (Sympetrum striolatum), ovipositing in tandem. This species of dragonfly is active even in winter, this was captured in December. It's an uncropped photo and I especially love the ripples of the water (caused by the female darter dipping the tip of its abdomen in the water to lay its eggs).
