Animal photography

For me, not only exotic animals are interesting, but also our local ones; a sparrow or a great tit are just as interesting as a hummingbird, a deer as an antelope. Accordingly, I am mainly on the move in south-west Germany and neighbouring regions.

Most of my animal photos are taken in the wild. That means, the animals do not live in zoos or wildparks and are not farm animals.

Some live in nature reserves such as the Federsee, the Taubergießen or the Wagbachniederung at Waghäusel, others in forest and field or in the city.

Not only the animal should be visible, but also its habitat. Unfortunately, that doesn't always work. I always catch birds sitting freely on a branch or at the top of a tree.
