The Netherlands
Argiope bruennichi (Wasp spider-Wespspin) is a species of orb-web spider distributed throughout central Europe, northern Europe, north Africa, parts of Asia, and the Azores archipelago. It should be noted, however, that the distribution towards northern Europe started about half a century ago, with the first published sighting in my country (The Netherlands) in 1980. And it was only in the 21th Century that the distribution of the species proceeded quickly toward the northern and western parts of The Netherlands. The image shows a female spider, close to her egg sac and was made in september 2010 in a wildlife garden in Zaandam. © Tom Kisjes

The Netherlands
Morning view on the village De Rijp, next to the Eilandspolder. Before the lakes Schermer and Beemster on either side of De Rijp and Eilandspolder were pumped dry, De Rijp was a port town with merchant ships that travelled the high seas on trade routes. The town had a medium-sized herring fleet, and searched for whales with larger ships. Rijper vessels travelled regularly to Spitsbergen. After the success of the new polders near Alkmaar and Egmond, plans were formed to make polders of the other lakes in North Holland, including the ones on both sides of De Rijp. The 17th Century project was run by the architect-engineer Jan Leeghwater, who was born in De Rijp. Today the village is known for its characteristic monuments, which include some of the oldest wooden houses of North Holland. Image made with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line). © Tom Kisjes

The Netherlands-Polder Westzaan
The plentiful emission and deposition of nitrogen oxide and ammonia in the last half century, coming from a.o. traffic, farming and industry, pose a threat to nature's biodiversity. To protect rare plant communities, depending on a nutrient poor environment, remedial measures like stripping off eutrophic layers, are being taken in Polder Westzaan. They are combined with a.o. the digging of pet holes and overdue maintenance, like dredging. The impact of the work looks a bit disastrous, but even in the short term botanical results are expected. This image shows that excavated soil is used to strengthen the banks of other meadow- and reedland. On a modest scale I'm trying to capture these measures, with kite and camera (attached to the kite's line). © Tom Kisjes
