Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “through”. Remember you can click on each photo for a larger view. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.
Let me take you on a tour through the forest, one of my favorite activities. Sometimes the trail going through is pretty narrow.
And sometimes it is quite wide.
Pine trees have so many thick branches that it can be hard to see the blue sky through them.
Pine tree sap is see through, although it tends to reflect a lot of its surroundings too.
Sometimes when you hike in a park, a river runs through it.
All the way through.
Forests are full of plants and animals, including insects. Insect wings are usually see through, including the wings of this blue dragonfly.
Beautiful; the tears of the tree!
Thank you! It does like the tree is crying, isn’t it? Except that the sap is solid. Lots of cool colors in those tree saps.
I really love that image looking up through the tree. Definitely calendar-worthy. (Then again, they all are!)
Well, thank you! Ah, that calendar… I need to dedicate time next week to start selecting photos to make the final pick. I think I’m going to spend one morning at my local coffee shop just to do that. Sometimes it’s good I get out of my cave to change my mindset.
I hear you.
Thank you for the wonderful tour of the forest!
You’re welcome. There’s a lot to see when you stand in the middle of nature.
Good shots, Milka! The tree sap is great.
Thank you very much! I enjoyed photographing the tree sap in many ways this summer.
Lovely as always!
Thank you very much, Catherine!
So peaceful with beauty of nature revealed in every single photo. The pine sap is my favourite among them all 🙂
Thank you, I think it’s my favorite too. Nature is very peaceful and I always enjoy finding myself in the middle of it.
I love those dragon fly wings. Was that hard to capture?
The hardest part is finding a dragonfly that actually sits still somewhere. Most of them fly around and never stop. Once they stop, they get a bit nervous when you try to approach them so they may fly away but I’ve noticed they often come back to the same spot a few minutes later. So, yes, it takes a lot of luck and a lot of patience. Bees are a lot easier to photograph because they collect nectar in the same area for a while.
Well, that makes the picture even more awesome! Good job and good patience.
Thanks, but don’t forget, a lot of luck!
