Wings of Spring

Like a ballerina ...

The common fly

Carpenter bee

The carpenter bee belongs to the Xylocopa family. They are solitary bees and they nest by tunneling in dead wood or bamboo hence their name - Carpenter bee. The male carpenter bees are harmless as they do not have a stinger but they are really big and their buzzing sound are quite unnerving, at least for me.

Lovely! Reminds me of a time in the Peruvian jungle where we were almost "attacked" by so many butterflies.  Your inspiring post has got me searching into long forgotten photo files. Thanks!

Thank you very much, Piotr. It was shot with 5 phots and then focus merge.

Seen a few orange-tips (the butterfly in #) recently too. They seem to be doing rather well in natural reserves in Flanders, but it would be nice to have more of them (and other butterflies) around.

Thank you, Björn. The orange-tips are generally the very first to appear during Spring.

These are excellent close-ups, Nancy. I love the title of this post, too.
