The heathland is in full bloom! So I took the chance to travel to a nearby abandoned military training area known as the „Reicherskreuzer Heide“ north of Cottbus and South of Berlin together with photo buddy Martin. The whole area is completely covered by the heath, only here and there are trees poking out of the thick carpet of violet. Especially the birches with their black and white bark stand in contrast to the colourful ground plants. Everywhere you go the air is almost vibrating by the humming of tens of thousands of bees and other insects. A feast for spiders for they are the lucky ones when the insects find their way into the beautifully woven webs.
