Droplets of Water Versus Insects

Posted in Animals by admin | Tags: , , ,

While the night covers the forest, many things can happen. For insects, like for humans, it is time for sleep. But droplets of water do not know any sleep. They are simply falling down. These pictures were taken by physiotherapist Miroslaw Swietek at around 3 am at night, in a forest near his home.

This 37-year-old amateur photographer makes shots of motionless bugs in the darkness before setting up his camera and flash just millimeters from them.

I don’t think that he can wake them up.

Arromanches-les-Bains or just Arromanches is a place situated near the coast, approximately 25 km northwest of Caen. So what is on this place so special. When I first saw this title, I had no idea.

So I dug a bit to found it out. Arromanches is the place where the Normandy landings took place on the 6 June 1944. So called D-Day.
This Allied invasion of Normandy was called Operation Overlord or Operation Neptune during the World War II. As you can see on the pictures bellow, the place maintain its memories on this happening on the coast and in the museums.
