Bumble Bee (macro)

2013 hasn’t been a great year for insects. Bat pups numbers, due to the lack of insects during the mating period in a very very rainy Spring, fell 50% below average, one female bat in two deciding to skip 2013 for giving birth. Pyrenees. Summer 2013

Rose in Picardy (Macro)

Getting one’s camera stolen is a severe blow. Not mentioning the cost. But I need to get back in the saddle and go on with my work. So I chose a picture I took a year ago in Picardy. Roses bring serenity and serenity is what I want at the moment.

Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum (B&W)

The statue is named “Armed Peace“, it represents an Angel holding a knight’s sword. It is made of bronze and weighs 28 tonnes! The Sculptor’s name is Jules Coutan. Bonus: if you zoom in on the little dark stain at the right of the pedestal of that statue, you will realise it’s not a stain but an insect. So much for the crispiness of my 24-85mm lens.
