Natural History Photographs

Crete, Greece
24 April 2017

After having found Gious Kámbos with its richniss of orchids, and other places rich in orchids as well, we still had one day left in Kerames, and I thought it were time for a little drip of culture; so we headed toward the ruins of the ancient city Phaistos, the second largest city of Minoan Crete. To someone with a more robustly developed interest in archaeology it will certainly have its charme, but I found it much to manicured to my taste - I prefer the sites where nature is more allowed to reclaim the area. The most interesting finds for me were a few bees and a digger wasp...
