Native moments

Tuesday, 24 March 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. 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 shows some photographs I took in Upper Austria's wetlands in the course of my project "Natürliche Nähe". More on this project will come pretty soon hopefully. Currently there're a Facebook page and an Instagram profile regarding this project, which you can check out of course.

Native moments

A hunting Gray Heron at early dawn somewhere in the wetlands.

To my great delight, I had a very close encounter with this beautiful Little Bittern in 2019. This was my very first sighting of this bird ever and of course I was pretty excited as it sat down on a branch about seven meters from me all of a sudden.

Autumn slowly coverd the wetlands back in October.

As I noticed some Mallards on the lake, I just tried to capture the beauty of the Birch together with the ducks and the foggy mood.

A beautiful Eurasian Jay up in the trees captured last September.

I deeply enjoy these tranquil mornings.

A young Roe Deer following its mother through the shallow waters. I really like how the rising sun set parts of the mist in the forest on fire.

Spring Birches along a lake.

Actually not the classic wetland residents. Nevertheless beautiful subjects.

Soft side part II - New Zealand part XIV

Changing tides always create great terrains.

Actually quite a strange animal with the size of a cow.

Little detail during a morning stroll at the beach.

A Pied Shag dressing up for the evening.

Soft surf, sand and the evening sun created some quickly fleeting patterns of gold.

A beautiful bird in its baeutiful habitat.

A Royal Albatross spreading its wings straight into the sun.

The Yellow-eyed Penguin is among the three rarest penguin species worldwide an listed as endangered ...

... and the Little Blue Penguin is the smallest penguin species on earth and actually very hard to spot.

Very impressive birds in many ways. The Royal Albatross has a wingspan up to 3.3 meters, a life expectancy of 60 years and the young ones spend their first five years out on the open sea, before they find their lifelong partner and mate for the first time at the age between six and ten to raise just one chick.

The Royal Spoonbills share the habitat with the Royal Albatross.

Looking for dolphins in the early morning. Unfortunately the thick fog wasn't very helpful but provided a very moody atmosphere.

A New Zealand Fur Seal enjoys some of the very few sunbeams under the rainbow they created. Although the image might look quite cozy, the conditions were actually pretty nasty ...

... but we always had our cozy home, which gave us shelter for ten weeks. This is how it looked from the inside ;)

But of course, we spent most of the time open-air just enjoying the freedom and the beauty of the environment :) In this case we shared the beach with ...
 

... an impressive Sea Lion which finally woke up after hours of sleep and gave me the opportunity for an appealing image.

Hardly anything better than observing dophins while having breakfast.

Especially along the coasts, delightful details can be found on almost every step.
