|#2 - main house, late June 2012,|
door to attached annexe can be seen on left
|#2 - stables, our resident dormouse, is it not cute?|
|#2 - stag beetles|
though the situation is arranged (a dead branch was set up at the
back of the camper van, first one beetle was gently forced to land,
then transferred to the branch, this beetle attracted another one
which was also successfully grounded and carefully placed on the
branch), the photo itself is not manipulated in any way -
for someone who has always been totally fascinated by insects,
it does not get any better than this...
taken with flash just after sunset, meaning in twilight, though it
looks like midnight here because of the flash
the key to photos like this?
preparation and patience
