Variable Bluet, one of the most common species around here. I saw only one today; the weather is too cold for the time of the year

Did you know  unlike dragonflies, mayflies aren't raptors, they don't even eat. They hatch, mate, lay eggs if they're female, and then die.

The river Aa, near my house, is connected to the East Lake by a concrete tube. This Gray Heron at the river end of the tube has discovered there's a lot of fish passing through.

This is one I made in October 2015. A wasp (Ichneumonidae indet.) is laying eggs in a wooden post. Before depositing the eggs, the wasp is turning around her body axis maybe 10 or 12 times and uses her awl sting to drill a hole.

There are Red-headed and Black-headed Cardinal Beetles in the Netherlands. We call them vuurkevers (fire beetles).

Dutch biggest  wasp (and a real "bird" of prey): the hornet. One of my favorites, I'm always looking for nests.
