Some Summer Pictures

Female lesser stag beetle. About 3cm long (and nice).

Hello there! My Fennel and I enjoy summer a lot, so we did a trip to Southern Germany. While we visited a forest close to the city, we saw a few nice little critters.

Caterpillar of Lymantria dispar. It was about 5cm long (and also nice ^^).

A beuatiful Argynnis paphia!
Fennel took all the pictures with his smartphone.

Summer Encaunter

After an "april-ish" spring summer came very fast. There was almost no occassion to wear my overpriced cagoule... Tsk! But I won't complain, I like warm weather. But for strolls it's often too hot for me, so I would prefer to take a refreshing bath in the lake. However there was still time to hunt some critters near the lake <3

Spring Snakes!

Spring was strange so far. First it was very warm, even dry (we had forest fires) and than winter came back. Warm and very cold days rotated but now spring is here - finally. I managed it to visit my beloved snakes and took some photos of them and other creatures. Have a look under the cut.

Picture of the Day

Today we saw a very young, about 25cm long pike. That was awesome, because normaly you don't see such fishes so clear in the water. Mating season is near, maybe that's why that pike was in the pond-like section of the lake.

Antilocapra americana

Hello and welcome to another entry about my collected oddities. This time I want to talk about my christmas present to myself of 2016. It's a skull of an unordinary animal. An animal, which only lives in North America. Did I arouse your curiosity? Well, then let's go under the cut!

Winter - so far so good


Winter 2016/2017 started very strange. It was a long time too warm and there was no snow, not even in the mountains. There was also no rain, it was too dry! This unusually warm time was the reason that a lot of the migratory birds didn't came to our shores. I think they stayed at home or didn't fly so far as usual. Well, but there were still animals for my camera. See my loot under the cut!
