Blue calls

Monday, 24 February 2020

Since, as you all probably know already, my main goal is to raise awareness for the importance of wild nature by showing it in my images, it seems important to me to display some of the pictures, of course. Unfortunately I still just cannot find the time to write the articles I would like to here on my website for all my series of images (I know I mentioned that already a few times before). So I decided to show the upcoming sets of images just with a very few words instead of not showing them at all. Sorry for that. Hope you enjoy the pictures nevertheless and may they hopefully speak for themselves. And of course, your thoughts and feedback are welcome anytime. The series you can see in this blog entry is about the Red Deer rut in Lower Austria 2019.

Blue calls

My first sighting during this trip.

Clearly to hear, hardly to see.

The darker it gets, the more calls one can hear.

Spotlight by the moon.

Pretty lucky to capture this guy in great evening light.

Since it's really tough to even spot the animals, every sighting is pretty exciting.

Misty conditions make a perfect setting for a moody scenery.

Hidden in foggy morning light.

Fluffy heart

Tuesday, 4 February 2020

During one of my autumn Reed Deer rut trips I was lucky enough to encounter one especially curious and cooperative wild Red Fox in daylight. As I discovered the animal hunting for mice on the open meadow, I approached very slowly and carefully behind some bushes before I finally dared to show myself in a safe distance and laid down on the ground. Finally the fox came so close, that I could hear it breathing and way to close for my lens to get it in focus. Of course, no bait or other attraction (except myself) was used here. All in all I shared about two hours with the gorgeous animal and returned with quite a few unexpected shots. So I decided to dedicate this great encounter an entire little blog entry.

Fluffy heart

One of the first pictures I took, while I was still hiding behind the bushes. The warm evening light illuminated the foliage in fantastic colors.

I still can't understand, how the first thought of so many people about this beautiful animal is killing it ...

Lots of Autumn Crocuses were blooming there at this time of the year and completed the scenery.

A little tricky to set the focus.
 

It's very impressing how many mice the fox was able to catch during this two hours ... think of it ;)

Finally getting tired.

Since I was laying on the ground I could get a proper angle and I also got some grass for an interesting foreground.

Picking up the scent in lovely evening light.

Such a privilege to share the terrain with a totally relaxed and peaceful wild animal.

2018 B-Sides part II

Monday, 20 January 2020

Hello again, everyone ... Today I would like to serve you the missing second series of mixed leftovers from 2018. So here you are :) This set of B-Sides just contains images from Austria.

2018 B-Sides part II

Some winterly crystal magic captured already two years ago at sunrise.

Two Yellowhammers busy feeding on the seeds of a Birch.

A little morning delight on my way to the Lady's Slipper habitat.

Mystic mood on a rainy day.

Some creek photography in winter. Since the sun is always pretty low at this time of the year, the light can be rather appealing all day long.

I guess everyone who owns my 2019 calendar already knows this image.

Another one of 2018's amazing Blood Moon.

Since European Pond Turtles are the only native tortoises in Central Europe, every sighting is very exciting.

A field of flowers makes a great foreground infront of some very gentle alpenglow.
