Anke und ich waren am Samstag im Otterzentrum in Hankensbüttel. Neben den Fischottern gibt es dort auch andere Marderarten zu sehen, so wie den Iltis (unten) und die domestizierte Form des Iltis, das Frettchen (oben). Das war auch mal wieder die Gelegenheit mit großen Objektiven auf kleine Tiere zu “schießen”.
Anke and I were at the Otter Center in Hankensbüttel on Saturday. Besides the otters there are also other marten species to see, like the polecat (below) and the domesticated form of the polecat, the ferret (above). This was also once again the opportunity to “shoot” small animals with large lenses.
This is one of my favorite images I have taken of my cat.. The sun outlined her side-profile beautifully. She has recently passed away, but I’m glad I have this image to remember her by. Rest in peace, Snowy.
Here’s another from the Merced Wildlife Refuge, a great place to go this time of the year. Last time I was there the geese were beginning to show up. The Sandhill Cranes were coming in in huge flights at dark. Difficult to get a good shot at a moving target when there’s very little light.
Balou is an award winning young male Cocker Spaniel dog which I had the joy to photograph coincidentally in our nearby Villeforst forest. Both the light and the doggie’s expression were unique and her owner more than pleased with the outcome. So was I.
