In the park around Broekhuizen castle there are two ponds where you can see numerous dragonflies and damselflies; a great location for macro photography. Last Wednesday, a dramatic thunderstorm also hit the estate; a great moment for landscape photography.
Young dragonflies will remain long enough in one place for you to photograph them from different points of view. But if they climb up, or start to move their wings, they will soon fly away.
The snail above and the two grasshoppers below are very small and hidden in the grass. Lying on your stomach, they can only be clearly seen and photographed.
The weather changes, time to switch from macro to wide-angle lens. In the foreground near the reeds, there is one of the ponds. Behind the house is the second and larger pond.
