resting and refuelling
this is an even warmer spot
your camera is bigger than my eyes
well, perhaps I was lying
no, I won’t leave

A spring day in fall …
I was surprised to first see a peacock butterfly
when out of a sudden, I heard a strange flickering sound close to my ear.
A dragonfly just missed my head
and went for a sunbath on a dead rhubarb leaf.
These animals are very beautiful
but they never let you snap them …
… in summer
But now this one felt cold enough
not to be disturbed by the camera …
… for just 5 seconds.
Off he went
zapping around my ears again
to then find a very attractive
The ball is 10 years old,
and flat as an old fig,
and yesterday I even thought
of making a Halloween pumpkin of it.
But now I know
The last week of October,
they keep their annual
And this one showed me
how to keep control
of this very special ball
