Today and yesterday I walked at the Tichelgaten. This is an area in the flood plains of the IJssel. It is a wetland area that was created by excavating clay for a brick factory that was active there in the past. Nature has taken over completely. There are so many plants and animals, especially waterfowl and insects. The weather was wonderful. Yesterday when I did not have the camera, I saw birds that I hoped to photograph today. Unfortunately, that did not work out. But there is so much more to see.
Here some pictures with bugs and a butterfly.
The air was full of dragonflies. They also sat on my shirt. I wanted close-ups, but not so close. When I finally found my mobile, it flew away. The photos have been edited with Lightroom and Color Efex Pro.
