Het Wilde Leven
Working from home has its advantages, especially when you face your garden while typing away on your laptop. I got distracted when I noticed a very red butterfly flapping away. I didn’t remember ever having seen a red butterfly. I got up, grabbed my camera and hoped that it would stay still somewhere. It did! It was a cinnabar moth, or in Dutch: de Sint-Jacobsvlinder.
one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
H.C. Andersen (the complete fairy tales)
Hi, I am Nadja, owner of Het Wilde Leven, or The Wild Life, if you want a translated version. I live in Belgium, Flanders, and am a huge nature lover. It all started with my grandfather who took me with him into his garden where he grew vegetables, apple and pear trees, and flowers. He even had a tree which he had especially planted in the year I was born. My grandmother collected articles and stickers and I always took the ones with animals.
Later on, my father took me with him to a photo club and there I learnt some tricks with my camera.
All comes together. I am still at my best outdoors with a book or my camera, zooming in on the details.
