Swallowtail Blur

(viewed 1776 times)
A Scarce Swallowtail.

Sometimes I end up liking the "screwed up" shot more than the one I intended to get. This was one of those cases.

And as you can see, it was also one of those rare cases when I actually got both. ;)

Details of an Old House I

Mostly stuff from the sheds and pens around the house itself.

Ruins

An old barn. Or rather, what's left of it.

And that house you can see through the window in the last shot? It's uninhabited and old too, but it will soon be rebuilt. Naturally, I had to go there with my camera before all those lovely old and rusty details are destroyed. I'll post those next. :)

Hoopoe

Yesterday I spent about 20 minutes in a rather uncomfortable position (totally worth it) photographing this lovely hoopoe. These guys are a bit shy, so I was very happy to stay that close to one for such a long period of time. Didn't seem too concerned, as you can see.

I did try to catch it in flight, but no luck. Also, it didn't open its crest for me. They're even more impressive when they do that.

Still, it made me happy. :)
