  1. How about that, a symmetrical double beetle photo bomb! Posted one year ago
    1. Nice question, Ferdy!
      It was very funny! All photos uploaded last days were made during a botanical tour in the Eastern Rhodope Mountains. I was the only one with a camera, and I always had to wait for the young and older ladies and men to shoot with their smartphones and it was not until then that my order came. During this time they kept going and I had to hurry to catch up to not miss something interesting.
      This iris is a rare plant, and I was quite excited to capture it, and no matter how ridiculous, I did not pay any attention to the insects on it. It was not until I began to post-process the pictures that I realised what I missed - 5 species of insects on one plant!!! No one of them on focus!
      By the way, looking on the other photo of this species, by Wildflower, there are also 3 insects on it. It seem this flower attracts a lot of different insects.
