bee at Echinacea

This post contains macro photos of bees, bumblebee, butterfly and a fly with flowers. Originally I wanted to post photos from April, when I spent some time shooting bees on Bear's garlic (Allium ursinum), but then I remembered I have very nice captures from last year.

snowdrops

Some flowers from early March. I was surprised how many snowdrops were flowering. I have never seen so many of them.

Wooden church in Svätý Kríž, Slovakia

It is long time since I blogged last. I have plenty of photos, but somehow I did not get to writing about them here.

These photos are from company event I have attended 2 years ago. We went to north of Slovakia, to Liptov. I know it well there, because I spent every summer there when I was kid. Still, we visited a few places I have never been before.

I have borrowed 14-24/2.8 lens for my colleague recently. I got a chance for quick test last Saturday. I wanted to see how it feels and if it will be worth a place in my luggage for my upcoming trip. Well, I knew I will find a place for it, I just could not wait...

I went to nearby woods and to my satisfaction I found place full of blooming flowers. In hindsight, I should have tried also some "macro" photos. But at that time I wanted just to see how wide it is, how much can be in focus for normal landscape photos and so on.

Our company event continued also on Saturday. According to plan, those of us with stamina and courage will hike some unmarked path to summit of some mountain with rescuer and mountain guide. But then it was decided we all will go together to hike like normal people do :-)

I guess that disappointed our guide Juraj Majer. But what he could expect from bunch of IT guys? On the other hand we were disappointed next morning, when he told us it is too windy for helicopter rescues. So our 1€ insurance will not turn out into helicopter ride. We should probably stick to hiking safely :-)

This blog is long overdue, but my free time is not what I was used to anymore.

Company I work for had a company event last October in High Tatras. I could not miss such an opportunity. And also our best customer from USA used it for getting to know us better, not to mention to see nicer part of Slovakia than Bratislava :-) Looking back at it, it was probably a bit irresponsible to "force" people giving you money to hike in the mountains but they fared well. And survived. All of them. :-)

Early autumn in High Tatras (Slovakia) is often the best time of year to visit. It is usually stable weather with nice blue sky and acceptable temperatures. It was valid last summer even more. It was unusually warm for October 1st and it was at least one month since last rain.

We decided to go particularly to Kvetnicové Pleso because there was some yoga meet-together and my in-laws practicing yoga were interested.

Autumn at Vršatec

Is this my first post about Slovakia? Well, I think so, because I am introducing a new category - Slovakia.

We have been thinking about visiting Vršatec every time we passed along it on motorway heading somewhere else. Interesting silhouette attracted us a lot, but it was easy to postpone visit every time. Until 3 weeks ago when we decided to take advantage of unbelievably nice weather for this time of year.
