ANGLEWING
Anglewing #butterfly (Polygonia c-album) sucking nectar. Species is interesting not just because of the unique shape of the wings, but both the larval and adult stages exhibit protective #camouflage, mimicking bird droppings and fallen leaves, in order to reduce predation. Adults look really impressive with open wings, but remain almost invisible with closed ones. Taken only about 11 miles from my actual residency in #Hungary. No need to travel far away for fantastic experience. Travel less, discover your backyard, reduce your ecological footprint! Please #followme at @joepetersburger to keep up-to-date with my images!

FUTURE
There is so much in this picture for me. However, it is very personal as well, so I do not want to over explain. Just enjoy! #mother #motherhood #pregnancy #Balaton #water #freshwater

REST STOP
Hoverfly rests on a common #chicory (Cichorium intybus) #flower. Hoverflies are amazing tiny fliers with wingbeat going up to hundreds/second. Of course, they need to relax sometimes...

EYE TO EYE
European #pond #turtle (Emys orbicularis) from front. We were at #Balaton #lake with lovely relatives and had 6 kids to take care of. We started to discover the place. We found fantastic "treasures", like #mallard #feathers, shed skin of a snake. Moreover, our host knew, where #turtles use to rest, so we could study them from close and even learn the morphological difference in between #female and #male.

NATURE RULES // This is our #smoker in our garden. We bought a #traditional #farm years before, so smoker was included. We used it last winter at first. Now nature, namely #grape #ivy (Parthenocissus tricuspidata) takes it back... No need to travel far away for fantastic experience.

FEATHERBALL
Common #kingfisher (Alcedo atthis) rests on a branch. This tiny little species fascinates me so much from every angle. Just take a look at this amazing design they have got from nature! However, when you want to cover their life cycle, such rest can be really embarrassing. For example, if a father bird fed all the chicks, they are able to rest for hours, without doing anything...

PRECISION
Common bee-eater (Merops apiaster) preening. Bee-eaters are amazing flyers, who are able to catch even the so acrobatic dragonflies mid-air! For such maneuvers they definitely have to have their #feathers ready and organized. It is a long process indeed. Sometimes they spend hours/day with such activity and it is not about the outlook...

TABLE READY
Hoverfly sucks #nectar from a #flower. Hoverflies are tiny and their wingbeat goes up to hundreds/second, so they are very difficult target mid-air.
