Currently the separation among our backyard and our neighbours is a wooden fence. In 2006 however, it was still formed by ivy, a few meters high. When the ivy was blooming, there were lots of butterflies to be found, hunting for honey.

In this picture one of them. He had eaten enough, and was ready to leave ….

Thank you for making the effort to take a look at my photos. Your visit is very much appreciated!
Photography is my passion since my youth and I never go out without my camera.
I found red-bubble in Spring 2009 and I’m glad I did. It’s a very inspiring and fascinating place to be, in more ways than one.
A heartfelt thanks to you all for the many kind words and wonderful compliments you gave me. I look forward viewing your world and sharing mine.
Have a wonderful day! Take care!
