Hoboken Polder (31 March 2007)

This Saturday we went for a walk in the "hoboken" polder, at the south side of Antwerp city.
From the sixties till the nineties it was a municipality dumping ground.
In the nineties this area was saved and became a nature reserve.
Not well known in Antwerp it's a nice place for a walk.

enjoy - Ronny

K10D + tamron 70 300 macro except one a bit lower


My wife just happy she made it across/through the quality path


Normally we don't see many butterflies this time of year but the soft winter
was good for them.





^this one was with a tamron 18 200

First I thought the wings of this one were cracked, but this is the way these
ones look.

Ronny, it looks like you had a very relaxing day. I like the pictures and especially the variety. Thanks for taking us with you on your walk in the park!

Great shots. Look like you had fun.

I really like good scenery shots, but don't always have the patience to take them.

BTW I really like the last shot.

Everybody thanks for the nice remarks.

Roger, it's a nice spot - only a shame we only have some spots of this landscape left. (350 ha is the size of this reserve).

Its just big enough to take a walk in it.

The only thing I never understand is, there were no other people there, sometimes I think that I'm a freak enjoying going for a walk.:O

I know that feeling so well. If I'm lucky/unlucky I may see 1 dog walker but that is it.

Everyone is tucked up indoors watching TV!

Be happy that you don't have lots of others around - it makes it much harder to get good pictures like these. Try getting natural landscape photos in Yosemite in summer (it's mildly easier in winter). Thanks for posting them, looks like my kind of place, too!

I guess that you already know that the 1st butterfly is a Peacock (they tend to sit still marginally longer than most others) and the 2nd is a Comma.

Here's a Peacock, taken yesterday,with the DA 18-55mm (no cropping)



And of a Comma, taken last week, again with the DA 18-55mm (some cropping)



To me, it's a bonus to have the complete day to myself.
