Bij - Bee

Party in the driveway

Mid-September, a beautiful day. The sun is shining and it is lovely outside. I come home by car and park the car near the hedge in the driveway. I open the car door and then I see it. There’s a party in the hedge. And it’s busy. Everything flies, buzzes and flutters. From very small flies to beautiful butterflies.

The common ivy is blooming. It doesn’t look special. But the insects love it. Bees, hover flies, drone flies and red admirals not one, but certainly about ten. Beautiful red butterflies that also were wonderful models. I took so many pictures.

This proves once again that you don’t have to travel around the world to photograph. The party was two steps from my front door. Feast for the insects and for me.
