Amid the Green

Not a lot of updatery, I know. Sorry. Something (I think the day among the cherries and one of the unwashed cherries maybe) gave me a definitive stomach bug. I think the nadir was passed on Tuesday/Wednesday (no details necessary, I think, no?), but one week later I am definitely still on the “banana, potaoes, and well cooked rice only” boat. Which is a tiny bit annoying, as I feel as if I want to eat All The Things, but once I did it would definitely turn out to have been a mistake. Also, this might just be me, oversharing. And in perspective, this is like nothing at all. So, you know, no worries … but that is why I did not post anything.

The Summer Tree


Wednesday, May 28th, 2014



I’m off to Bochum tomorrow, for the Imagining Earth conference. My bags are packed, my presentation is printed and the Prezi is both on a virtual drive and on a USB stick, and, while I really rue losing the public holiday and the long weekend to work, I’m also looking forward to it! I’ll be back late on Sunday!

Broad-bodied Chaser

Broad-bodied Chaser

I am no expert on dragonflies, but from googling I’d say this is a female Broad-bodied Chaser (Libellula depressa). Whether it is or not, it was the biggest dragonfly I’ve yet to encounter – it was huge, and when it first flew by me I mistook it for a small bird, from the size and the shadow it made. But no, really big dragonfly. I took this photo in the Langballig Au, but there are lots of them out in the Geltinger Birk, as well – the Geltinger Birk seems to be a good place to spot dragonflies and damselflies of all sorts in general. I think I saw more than 60 last week, of at least four different species. So, you know, if you are an Odonata enthusiast and in the region, the Geltinger Birk is definitely the place to head to, right now. In the unlikely event that you are, send a comment and I will point you to the precise hedge where they were all hanging out.
