Image of the month

At the end of every month I will showcase a photo taken in that month. Slowly this page will become a diary of what I photograph throughout the seasons and years.

August 2020

At the end of August, when the heather is blooming, the nights are already getting cooler, resulting in lovely misty mornings. I enjoy these subtle, intimate landscapes.

July 2020

The summer is always the time to photograph butterflies and dragonflies for me. Here are two green-veined whites in love, always a good way to celebrate the summer!

June 2020

This image was taken at a stream in the Netherlands with a perfect habitat for banded demoiselles. These males are each trying to get the best spot!

May 2020

This photo was taken with my beloved Canon MP-E 65mm 1-5x macro lens. This is a detail of the wing of a black-tailed skimmer (dragonfly) at the maximum of 5x magnification! I always enjoy seeing all the details, colors and reflections in the dewdrops.

April 2020

The butterflies are back! That always makes me very happy. Fortunately in the Netherlands we are still allowed to go outside despite the coronavirus crisis. Of course I follow the social distancing rules. These 2 orange tip butterflies have no social distancing rules and sleep together in the same plant and enjoy the sunrise.

March 2020

Spring has started! This is a close-up of the common but very beautiful daisy. I always love it when the petals have a pink edge like this one.

February 2020

The winter of 2019-2020 seemed more like a prolongation of autumn. But at the end of February there was one morning where there was a bit of snow. So I took the morning off and went to the Veluwe to enjoy the white world.

January 2020

Taken on a grey January day in a forest on the Veluwe, the Netherlands. There is a beautiful creek running through the forest and the trees are covered in bright green moss.
