Photographer's Note

While I was taking photos on Isola Virginia in Varese Lake (see my previous photos) I realized this insect was walking on my pullover (not Armani neither Versace)that in that moment I was wearing. Few seconds to change settings (supermacro function etc) and this is the result. Ok it is not perfect (not in focus etc) but you have to think I used only one hand (the other one to stretch the pullover). I like it.

The entire island Virginia (9200 sq mt) is covered from a thick vegetation, sure shelter for the numerous wild animals that live here. Black oaks, alders, many Taxodium Distichum with their roots, water-lilies, butchers's brooms, thick cane fields offer a sicure shelter to the little bittern, the coot, the great crested grebe and the water hen that live in this pure environment.
