Still having lots of problems with WordPress 😦 My latest post didn’t show up in subscriber’s Readers, and WP Helpdesk aren’t able to help. Boooh. (If you read this, please check out the post from last week as well!)

Anyway, it’s been a lovely sunny weekend here in Amsterdam ❤ I took these pictures with my iPhone

Aren’t these tilted trees just so beautiful?

Love autumn leaves! So colorful and perfect..

Things aren’t always what they seem –

“Mountains”

“Flowers”

“Clouds”


2018-1

Week one in the new year! It’s been raining and storming here in Amsterdam this week, not the best conditions for my new (not weather-sealed) lens but here are some shots taken from under my umbrella-

‘ A tree stag beetle’


alcedo

A male Eurasian Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis), photographed yesterday. Isn’t he beautiful! 🙂 I don’t have a long zoom lens; the first picture has been cropped (he has a small fish in his beak), the second one not (you have to look for the bird in that one).

About the scientific name: Alcedo is Latin and means “kingfisher” and Atthis was the consort of Cybele in Greek mythology. Atthis was also a Phrygian god of vegetation and represented the fruits of the earth, which die in winter only to rise again in the spring.

Wishing you all HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! As usual this time of the year, I’m off to Sweden 🙂 See you again in 2015!

150

This is my 150th post! I started blogging ~8 months ago, and since then I’ve “met” so many wonderful, encouraging, inspiring and friendly people. Very nice!! I’m definitely going for (at least) 150 more..

Today I saw a squirrel in the forest. Isn’t he cute? I especially like his hairy ears. 🙂  Happy weekend everyone!

bridge

One of the bridges in Amsterdamse Bos. Seconds after I took this shot, the sky opened up and drenched me and my camera.

ok

Is it just me, or does it look like this tree is forming an “ok” sign?
