A few weeks ago I went on a family holiday to Ibiza. A wonderful island which suprised me in its beauty and diversity. Admist the pool, snorkelling in the clear seas, and helping myself to the all inclusive Cuba Libres I managed to make time to take a walk in the local gardens and surrounding countryside to look for subjects to photograph.
At first it was hard to spot any insects. I barely saw any bees (I know there are many) and apart form the constant humming of Cicadas in the trees which instantaneously turned off as you approached I was a little disappointed with what I found. I’m sure this is not a true reflection of the amazing wildlife on the island as I didnt have much time to look but here are a few of pictures of what I did find on closer inspection.
Although I did not spend much time with my camera I did see a lot more wildlife. Perhaps next time if I visit it would be nice to explore the national park forests inland. I thoroughly recommend visiting Ibiza it is beautiful not just the club life as seen on television.
