Croatian Flora and Fauna

Now it will be the last part of Croatia, and today it will be pictures of animals and flowers. Have tried to shoot birds here, but they were so incredibly timid so i did not get so many pictures of them. And last week down there I found a place that had a lot of birds including kingfisher, little egret, and some shorebirds but unfortunately most often it is difficult to get to some sensible images when you do not have some sort of camoflauge and will not be enough close.
This year, I discovered that there were lots of fine butterflies, because I can not remember it's been so much before.
I tried to photograph a butterfly named makaon which has the size of a palm and is really nice. But they're impossible to shoot in the heat, because they are kind never still, they just fly all the time. So I gave up on them and shot a few other species instead. Even managed to find a turtle they are there all over the place, but they are not easy to find in the terrain.
So it was all from croatia then. Next time it will be probably somewhere from the Peak District again.

    Kul att du lyckades fota hummingbird, synd bara att det inte var en färggrann en.
