I promise you, this will be the last post from our trip to Zrce. I know you all are here mainly because of the make up and nail polish and I bore you with pictures of … well not-make-up. Luckily there are other Parokeets ladies who are writing great nail polish related posts.

Here we go … Yesterday I already told you about a beautiful and peaceful place not far from the Zrce beach. Well, today I have some pictures of that place and creatures that live there.

… beautiful place …

The “path” you see in the picture above … well, tide floods it. The pictures above was taken at 9am and at noon it was almost completely flooded. I don’t have a picture to prove it to you, because it’s nothing special. Just water. Fortunately I had my jelly shoes with me as you’ll see in one of my following pictures.

As we walked along the path and I took pictures of everything. First thousands little moving things caught my eyes. I took a closer look in the water and by my very surprise, I saw lots and lots of almost transparent shrimps or prawns. I was in seventh heaven. I have three freshwater aquariums at home and in all of them there are freshwater shrimps. If you have that in mind, you can imagine how amazed I was to see these little creatures in their natural environment. I couldn’t get a good picture of them, because they are very fast and transparent and they blend with the surroundings. Here’s what I’ve got …

Look at the next ones abdomen. Do you see tiny round dark spots? These are eggs. Yes, she’s going to have babies.

In case you were wondering … Wet’n’Wild – Lime Time on my thumb.

We found some “empty” shells.

At least we thought it was empty, but when I used it as a scenery for my Barry M photoshooting and the water filled it, a little creature peered out.

An anemone, looking funny and interesting …

One of the highlights of the day was seeing some big crabs. I haven’t seen such big crabs before. At least not in nature.

And maybe the biggest highlight of the day: it turned out I had a stalker there. This little funny guy, followed me a long way …

Really, I’m not kidding. He was following me quite some time. See how he showed his love?

He “hid” under my jelly shoe. :D (Sorry for the chipped pedicure, but jelly shoes aren’t gentle to your pedicures.) It was so funny. I laughed and was afraid at the same time. Afraid that he would pinch me and laughed for obvious reasons.

I don’t know why this little guy followed me, but my theory is, that he saw me at Parokeets blog and he wanted a pedicure. Good theory? Little guy, I hope you are already a GFC follower.

To be serious, I believe he was following my shadow. But I could be wrong …

That’s what I have for you today. I hope you liked at least some of it. As I wrote before, for me this was the best hiking trip in a long long time …
