Owl and Snowdrops in Garden

Do you know how hard it is to photograph flowers when it is storming? I noticed it last Thursday in the the beautiful, old Ambtmanstuin (countryside garden - 1860) of Tiel. These two photographs are the only ones that are a little bit sharp.  Note also the centuries-old tree behind the lilac crocuses.

Klokjes en krokus
Weet je wel hoe moeilijk het is om foto's van klokjesbloemen te maken als het hard waait? Dat merkte ik afgelopen donderdag in de oude ambtmanstuin in Tiel, achter het stadhuis. Deze twee foto's zijn de enige die een beetje scherp waren. Zie je die eeuwenoude boom achter de krokussen? Zo imposant met die enorme takken.


 
Today my husband walked during his break in the same yard and saw a man who was training his owl. He sent me a few snapshots via his Phone. I hope you like this beautiful owl with yellow eyes. 

Uil in tuin
Vandaag stuurde mijn man me een paar spontane foto's vanuit dezelfde tuin. Hij zag namelijk een man, die zijn jonge Siberische oehoe (ik hoop dat ik de goede naam te pakken heb) trainde. Ik ben helemaal weg van uilen. Geweldig! Daarom blij met de foto's.

 

Have a Nice day!

  8. The owl is gorgeous. There is one that hangs out in the pine tree right by the water each night. He does not let you look at him. He stations him at the very tip top of the tree.

  22. Such lovely flower photos!
    It is indeed difficult to take photos of plants in a windy weather and at least here it seems that all seasons have become windier.
    Have a good day!
