The kid being at the grandparents' and this being the summer holidays I indulged in a little picture-taking in the parkland close to our house.

I did not spot the cormorant again (yes, really) who somehow has been hanging out on the local river, but there were lots of butterflies, dragon-/damselflies, several species of waterfowl and all sorts of creepy-crawlies.

I'm doing this photo project on twitter called MissionFoto and the theme this month is Gegenlicht, i.e. Contre-jour or backlighting. I've been playing around with that a bit but there are also some more straightforward pictures.



I think this is hogweed and it's very photogenic with or without backlighting:







Thistledown reflecting the sunlight:



A stinging nettle leaf:



Have you been wondering about the brown thing in the background? It's a snail:



Yellow flower:



I only got a picture from far away of the Peacock butterfly, but the Red Admiral posed for me:



I think it had been engaged in some sort of mating ritual flying wildly through the air with two others of its kind, but resting on this pillar now and again.

I don't think I have my July picture yet, but I've got a rough idea of what I want now.
