Tidbits : Garden Animals


A short update about the animal life in my garden.
I saw a stunning green insect who was definitely sunning on my towel; looked it up in my insect book and found out it's called a Heteroptera bug in English, wants in Dutch and Wanzen in German.


When I was picking berries, the earth next to me was suddenly moving; a mole was coming out of it. He must have been very deaf because he kept on digging when I was standing there. I even shouted to hubby to bring me the camera, what he did, but then finally the mole felt something and speeded away in his hole. So this is afterall all I could get from him. I had never seen a live mole above the earth before.....
And lastly some hot love on the garden pavement.

Good close ups. I saw a frog or maybe a toad in the garden today. It moved off fast.
