Because a photo can say more than a 1000 words, I hereby present you my 2015 in photos:



At least we had some winter and some beautiful mornings in magical misty mood.

We had a few hours of snow. Enough to capture a red fox and a fallow deer in a wintry scene…

Fortunately the fox cubs were prepared to wait and gave me the chance to witness and capture lots of interesting young fox behaviour…

And I happened to stumble upon a cute baby bird that knew how to climb trees like no other, but that’s another story….

At the beginning of the summer I had a nice refreshing time with the banded damselflies, as written in my River Pleasure.

At the end of the summer I was lucky to found some very amusing moths; a hummingbird moth and a Broad-bordered bee hawk-moth and I just couldn’t get enough of them!

In September the fox kits had grown big, which gave me the opportunity to focus on something else: very active tree frogs!

A few nice misty mornings kept me busy as well.

The beginning of autumn was the time to enjouy the fallow deer rutting season. This time I didn’t focus on the fights, but I chose the serene, peaceful moments instead, resulting in this “ZenDeer”.

Autumn can be windy and rainy, or ….perfect like the most beautiful fairytale. And when this happens, you should be there and be in awe…
So I did.

The end of the year offered a wonderful surprise…. Short eared owls were flying and hunting during day time. And the best of all was that this happened not so very far from my house. Happy to be able to play a home match…finally!

And for now: I wish you a beautiful, healthy and happy 2016 with wonderful moments and the pictures to prove it! 😉
