"Lady of the Rings"

It has nothing to do with J.R.R. Tolkien's epos but it is a "Ringsteek" competition in Den Burg (Texel). There is not much to tell about it, have a look at the photos (more than usual but they belong together) and you see what it's all about. Is this a typical Dutch game or is it in your place too? This is my post #200, never expected to get this far.

Early in the morning looking over my fence this is what I saw. It is almost like Alfred Hitchcock's movie. Click the icon and see all other Camera Critters.

Terracotta Army

In Assen, not far from our holiday cottage was an exhibition of the Chinese Terracotta Army. 10 of the 8000 warriors were here, all faces of the 8000 warriors are different. Originally the terracotta was colored, see the small pictures left and right. The pictures are not of very good quality because it was to dark, no flash allowed. Click the photo for a better view.

Butterfly Garden

We visited a butterfly garden and it was a perfect place for trying out my close-up converter. I took a lot of pictures but these are the best. The auto focus is the problem but manual is difficult also.
