A woodpecker nest discovered!
Oh, how happy we are! Yesterday we were on the road, when my friend called me and said, “Listen?” A truck passing by made me not hear anything, but a little later I heard! The sound of young birds, hungry young birds. And when I looked into the tree I was standing next to, I saw a perfectly round hole. Woodpeckers!! My friend, who is an excellent spotter, has discovered a woodpecker's nest! There may be no explanation that we went home to get our cameras right away.. And because the tree in question is on private property, asking the owner if we are allowed to photograph. That was no problem, so we back, and photographing from the car. Woodpeckers zijn namelijk schuwe vogels, en zoals vele vogels houden zij niet van een camera. By staying in the car and photographing from the car, we hope not to disturb the birds. We're talking here about the spotted Woodpecker. A bird smaller than I expected, also given the noise coming out of the nest. Father and mother Woodpecker do their best to provide the children with food, a beautiful sight! We'll check to see if the coast is clear before Mom or Dad plunges in. By the way, that's fast. Before you know it, they'll be gone.. The neatly round hole is big enough for mom and dad to slide through. It seems that the eggs have just hatched: the nest is well kept clean by the parents, and it seems that eggshells are being cleaned. It's hard work, such a nest full of children: Mom and Dad unload each other at a fast pace, and that sometimes means you have to wait for each other.... Hey, hurry up, I want to go in.! Yeah, I'm gonna.... (the picture is not sharp, the woodpecker was too fast!) Hey, hey, now I can get in.... The photo below is blurry, but indicates at what rate the parents pay off each other. ( My camera takes up to 60 photos per SECOND! ) One leaves, the other shoots up, into the nest. I've been told that in the nest there are 4 to 7 eggs, and so 4 to 7 young are now fighting for food. And again, a parent with an eggshell disappears, clearing up that mess! With a final cleanup picture I leave the nest for today. We will try to follow the nest, within three weeks the boy should fly out, we hope to be able to take a lot of pictures before that time.... Obviously, I don't reveal the place where we find this nest, we don't want to disturb the birds. The pictures are of course all taken by me with my Olympus OMD EM1-MRK 2, and not free to use. #naturephotography #spottedwoodpecker #nest #pretty #nognomed #thrilled #thrilledei

Online coloring for adults
A while ago, I discovered adult colors online on my smartphone. I was looking around the Playstore and my eye fell on online colors. That's how I got the idea. If I want to sit quietly in between, I want to relax, then it can be nice to have a little color. Of course this can also be done with markers and pencils. But right now I think it's just as convenient and fun to do that on my mobile phone. Also lying on the couch for a while it is convenient. No hassle with markers and a coloring book. From the Playstore you can choose from a variety of coloring books (apps). I've been coloring online for a while. I had started withColoring for Adults. A very nice color app, some coloring pages you have to pay. This is clearly indicated. But there are plenty of others that are free. I haven't colored for a few weeks and now I saw another app. The coloring book I'm working on right now is super handy and free. This is calledMandalas Coloring. If you have the coloring book installed on your phone, you can start choosing a coloring sheet. You tap your finger on the coloring sheet. You can zoom in to better color. Actually, it all speaks for itself. The handy thing about this is that you can save your coloring sheet in between. If you don't feel like doing something else, then that's no problem. When you log in again you can load the coloring sheet again and pick up where you were, ideal. I have also tried some others, but not every one likes and some are simply not convenient. You can also color by number and there are many more variants. For the time being, I'll stick to this, the coloring pages can be colored in all kinds of sizes. You can go for small coloring pages, but there are also large ones. You can easily switch to a different color palette. You can also choose from different categories of coloring pages; from animals, flowers, art, fairytale to mandalas in all kinds of styles. So plenty of choice. I will add a few examples of the coloring pages I have now made. When you're done with your coloring sheet, you can indicate it. Then your coloring page will be uploaded and it will be online. People can like your coloring page by clicking on the heart that is next to your coloring page. So you can see if people appreciate your color choice. The 3 coloring pages above and the coloring page on the right are online at Mandalas Coloring. When you're done, you can also choose to share your coloring page on Social Media.Since I do this with great pleasure and find it a way of relaxation, I like to share it with you. The 3 coloring pages above I have colored on Coloring for Adults. Photo in the header comes from Pixabay. #onlinekleuren#onlinekleurenopnummer#kleurapp#hobby#relaxing
