THE GREEN CAPITAL'S COLOURFUL ACROBATS

THE GREEN CAPITAL'S COLOURFUL ACROBATS

The Green Capital's Colourful Acrobats 2016 is a photographic competition intended to break down prejudices about the multi-coloured and skilful dragonflies dealt with by the Slovenian Dragonfly Society. Dragonflies are found near water, where they feed on small flying insects such as mosquitoes. You will be able to find out all about them and much more and take a close-up look at them at this creative workshop. Photography of this harmless-to-man and even beneficial insect will be collected from April to September, when an expert panel will choose the best. The main event will be an award ceremony with hospitality at the Biotechnical Faculty in November. When you've seen them close-up, you'll want to have them in your garden too. Nina Erbida from the Slovenian Dragonfly Society will showcase these magical creatures at a stand outside the Point.For you info centre on Friday 8 July from 10am until 12 noon.
