On my travels or local excursions, I try to take pictures of all animals that creeping, flying, running or otherwise appearing in front of my camera. Every new species or a picture of a known species, which is better than the previous one, inspires me anew.
The pictures were taken all by myself and without using any tricks, not as it seems to be the norm for many nature photos today. Feeding stations, water tanks with fish in them, zoo animal photos for sale as photos from the wild...
Having the picture taken, the actual work begins, determining and classifying of the species or subspecies. It is not always easy; some species remain unidentified. Especially in case of insects or marine animals the identification is sometimes quite difficult. In course of the time I could collect around 1650 species and subspecies. Roughly classified, these can be viewed on the subpages. I have deliberately limited myself to the classification "class -> order -> family -> genus -> species" in order not to bring too much complexity into the preparation of the pages.
If a name is wrong or imprecise, I would be very grateful if you could send me an e-mail
