Sometimes light, shadow and the subject combine to form a perfect blend.
The location was perfect, against a white wall of a nearby shed, in bright sunlight from behind and hundreds of flowers and insects nearby - the Botanical Garden in Turku is one of its kind. It took around 20 minutes before an insect arrived at the flower - and then another 5 before it was done and decided to fly away. Enjoy a picture just moments after the lift off.
This insect was moving rapidly - in fact, so rapidly that it took approximately 50 shots to have its head exactly in focus.
This damselfly photographed druing a rather chilly morning was enjoying a drop of water.
Nature is absolutely fantastic when it comes to colours.
Even an ordinary walk in a park may result in good images. Enjoy a bit of spring, regardless of the season!
