Wonderful, thanks for sharing Knut

This makes me want to be there, up in the clouds, gliding over this amazing landscape

It's good to see the progress you're achieving Frank.

I tried some transplanting recently. There's a herb called "Jack by the Hedge" in the UK, which I believe is Alliara petiolata
I've never had any luck getting the seeds to germinate, so when I found a big patch of it, dug up a plant to bring home

It has an usual taste - both garlic and (sometimes hot) mustard

I'm still on a steep learning curve with new camera body, PP s/w and now lens
This was taken on the first trip out with a 16-80mm which is taking some getting used to

Massimo, we should be grateful that the trees don't move fast!

When they fall to the ground, they move fast! :o

Ciao from Massimo

no, it is a stop and shot and turn by hand. But yes, Huawei Leica camera. Stitched with Kolor Autopano Giga 4

Frank, I would agree.  But at least the insets are "naturally" attracted to your ecosystem thanks to the absence of the lack of bug killer.

mainly due to the presence of a selection of rare local species feeding wild bees. Thus my selection of these species.

most of the species are self seeding annuals. My aim is to shift the meadow towards perennial species adapted to moist nutrient rich soil. Why? Becsuse the soil here is moist and nutrient rich obviously and because my meadow is destined to become a means of pumping carbon from the air to the soil

Enormous deposits of pollen from conifers (Norway Spruce, Scots Pine) now clog water surfaces and beaches all over my neighbourhood. I visited this pristine forest lake to do a test run with my "Yellow submarine", a Gladius Mini2 ROV, but found it well-nigh impossible to launch the ROV anywhere without smothering it with the yellow, sticky goo. Did a few overview shots with my AW1 instead. Be glad that we don't do odour photography as the smell of the decaying pollen is very unpleasant :(

thx, Akira.

As humans are part of nature, every Ecosystem is "natural" in a way ... Also the Androidecosystem or the Bayer-Monsanto-GEO-Monoculture-Ecosystem ... "natural" in the common sense is but: grown without human intervention, not intended by humans ... in that sense my project is not "natural" but "planned and designed" ...

Frank, I would agree.  But at least the insets are "naturally" attracted to your ecosystem thanks to the absence of the lack of bug killer.

Robert, that is a beautiful star trail shot!

Mike, you seem to have been truly inspired!

Frank, is that a sweep panorama image using your smartphone?  The image is stunning!
