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.

Some moth observing – June 7, 2018

Posted in Plimbari, Specii rare on June 8, 2018 by maxpho

While observing moths last night using a couple of mixed light bulbs, I’ve also dedicated a bit of time photographing some species.

First, despite not being moths, couple of damselflies:

A short walk with my wife not very far from home…on a lovely June day, with the Sun close to the horizon. And a few insects, photographed in the sunset light.

A few butterflies and moths – June 3, 2018

Posted in Plimbari, Specii rare on June 3, 2018 by maxpho

Just 3 hours in the woods today, searching for species, mostly butterflies…

These few shots present some of the more active butterflies observed today. There is also one moth shown, but its story is a bit different, being captured the night before while observing moths with an UV bulb. A few individuals from the species were afterwords collected and the next day they were released in the same location; this allowed for some daytime shots since they do not fly during the day.
