Moth watching – March 23, 2019

Posted in Comana, Plimbari on March 24, 2019 by maxpho

Went out with my brother-in-law for a short moth-watching/collecting in the woods. I’ve also wanted to test some of my new equipment: a newly designed moth light, and my brand new macro-flash. Luckily o lot of moths were attracted so I could test both items for a long time.

Comana Woods at -7 Celsius – January 12, 2019

Posted in Comana, Experimente, Plimbari on January 13, 2019 by maxpho

New photo gear and a nice cold evening in the Comana Woods.

Not many subjects to test the equipment, but some spectacular light and colors: the blue of the sky reflected by the snow, and the reddish cirrus clouds and tall grasses.

Spring in the Comana Woods – March 11, 2018

Posted in Comana on March 11, 2018 by maxpho

Spring is unveiling and with it the hibernating butterflies and the newly born flowers…

The following shots were captured on a lovely clear and warm day.

Inachis io: tens of individuals were flying today, after spending so many months in hibernation.

 

INACHISio

Gonepteryx rhamni: another hibernating butterfly. And one of the very first species that start flying early in the year. Whenever you see this one, in March usually, you know Spring is here for good.

The lovely Crocus flowers. One of the very first flowers emerging from the ground in March.
