Actinopterygii to Reptilia

On my travels or local excursions, I try to document all animals that crawl, fly, run or otherwise come in front of my camera. Every new species inspires me anew and motivates me to keep searching. The search focuses on birds, mammals and reptiles.
The pictures were all taken in natureby me or my partner Lea.
After the field work it comes to the "felt" actual work, determining and classifying the species or subspecies. It's not always easy, some species also remain unidentified, especially in the case of insects or marine animals, the identification is sometimes very difficult or even impossible.
In the course of time, over 1700 species and subspecies could have been collected and documented. Roughly classified, I have deliberately limited myself to the division "Class -> Order -> Family -> Genus -> Species" in order not to bring too much complexity into the preparation of the site. If a species seems wrong or imprecise, I would be happy to get your feedback via Mail .

Statistics

Of course, numbers are not so important in this context. But I’m interested to know how many different species already had an encounter with my camera. And, also important for me, is the taken picture good enough for identification of the species?
