There were some funny things in the garden where this meeting took place, among others a very special plant which I propose to call a "rhodospruce":



also there was a very solid bird: perhaps an iron tit?: who seems to thrive on rusty water:



and then a funny bug, walking around on a spruce branch and not only never seen before but also not found in any of the books about bugs I possess:



The more normal inhabitants of the garden are left for the next post!

In the garden where the meeting took place there were also flowers with a nice scent like valerian:



and meadow sage:



and finally remnants of the rain of the night before forming a nice "pearly"decoration on large leaves:



So maybe the other participant is going to give some views of this meeting too!?

I think you've seen "the other end" of this shot further up.

Thanks for your suggestion, I would never have thought of this possibility, but looking it up in Wikipedia confirmed your opinion: it is one of the larva stages of the ladybug

Yep, and they started long before we were Dyxum members.

Had some time to PP more shots, so here they come:

My favourite model was there as well


Weapon of choice for one of us, a trusted KM7D


Shot this with "photographers strange and funny" in mind


A few more to come later this week.

And here is one of the pictures taken by this funny photographer of a cranesbill:



and another one of the same plant:



both taken with a Dynax7d with Sigma 105 mm Macro at 1/5.6, ISO200 (see also previous post ), the first at 1/750s, the second at 1/125s, both aperture priority.
