I have been an exclusive contributor at DT since 2010 and there have been many ups and downs, after the first difficulties and the unavoidable learning process my acceptance ratio increased to over 80% and it seemed that slowly but steadily, as the sales and also the revenue were increasing, a little extra income could be achieved in future.I have been always dedicated to nature and specially wildlife which is not exactly the best selling sector but my bird pics were not doing so bad.In 2012... continue reading

The mantis and the lizard: history of a conversery predation

Among the animals, predators have an undeniable charm. And today I want to talk to you of two tiny predators, widespread in many gardens: the praying mantis (Mantis religiosa) and the common wall lizard (Podarcis muralis).   Tha mantis is a very efficient predator. With its strong front legs, catching and devouring countless small insects. Mantis religiosa is usually a medium-sized mantis, with a total lenght that can reach also 8-9 cm.   Some tropical mantis can reach also 12... continue reading

Photographing reptiles

In this particular article I'd write only about the non-venomous reptiles and some tips or tricks for photographing them.

But they are impossible subjects if you're not ready... continue reading

Side by side with lizards

After the purchase of a macro lens at the beginning of this summer, I needed "models" to picture at. As spending much time in countryside I noticed a small family of lizards living in a flowerbed. Often I saw them having sunbath at a yellow-green bush. Then I decided to pick up my camera and try to get nearer to them for photography purpose. As you see, I succeeded. Actually it was easier to get close to them as I thought. They did not seem to be afraid of me at all, if you move very slowly. I took... continue reading
