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.

A short trip on a beautiful Spring day in the Comana Woods. Went together with my uncle to see what’s up in the insect world, and I wasn’t disappointed.

Spring on February 17

Posted in Plimbari on February 18, 2019 by maxpho

It seems that Spring came a bit earlier this year: in February…

Many insects and arachnids were walking, flying, hiding today…in 15 degrees Celsius.

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.
