Wolfheze - 2014

Near Arnhem, made famous for a horribly failed world war 2 offensive, in the province of Gelderland in the Netherlands, lies Wolfheze. My parents live there. It's full of nature. I love it.

Some "rough" Dutch scenery

What do you get when you deny all trees a right to grow, and let the underbrush take over? Why, this. It's also full of fox holes and so irresistible to both dog and man.

Adjacent to fox territory was bunny territory.

Watering the fields

You are allowed to pump us groundwater, provided it is ONLY used to water the land. No personal use, it has to go from under the ground, to back under the ground, via crop. But then, you can use as much as you like to ensure your crop doesn't dry out.

a research station

this was a research station for counting/evaluating insects like mason bees in the surrounding area.

hmmm

this research post has either been collected, or vandalised.

Inachis io? Aglais io?

Apparently, aglais these days, but en.wikipedia hasn't caught up. Also, this is the catterpillar of the European peacock butterfly. Which is not actually a peacock. Just so we're clear.

A spot of pink

My parents have several rather lovely fragrant roses, but it wasn't hot enough for them to explode into full-rose-ness yet

A wooden wall

Virtually everyone has a wall of chopped wood for winter, but these neighbours took the notion of a wall of wood to the next level

Typical Dutch Scenery

This is what I imagine most other people imagine when you mention Dutch not-the-city scenery. Just add cows, done, right?

Any cup will do

Dogs do not care whether the cup is small or large. Or extra, extra, large.

Ladybirds

also known as ladybugs in North America, but that's not where I grew up.

The common fly

Usually not worth taking a picture of but then again... why not?

Nuthatches are very cute

This is a Eurasian nuthatch. it crawls along a tree looking for tasty bugs, and you can hear them scuttling up and down the bark well before you ever see them.

Ever seen a tree grow in a circle?

It's rather peculiar. Not unlike our car parked on the side of the road to take a picture of this. Where the road was technically a motor way.
