The "bigger photo post" I promised...


Coming soon, she said. Big photo post, she said. Ok, I'm sorry that I always need so much time for such simple things. But editing photos needs a lot of time and I'm always very busy and sometimes even lethargic with a bad mood. But hey, here we are! See a lot of photos under the cut!

Picture of the Day


While I was on a little hike I spotted two of these little fellas: caterpillar of Saturnia pavonia! Beautiful, aren't they? Brace yourself, a bigger photo post is coming soon... ;)

Sight of the Day


My first thought was great white heron, but it was too small and had yellow feet. Well, it's a little egret! Maybe it's on the way to its breeding ground, because we don't have these birds here in the area. Cool sight!

Botanical Garden of Zurich (snakes!)


Hey guys, what's up? :)
I enjoy springtime as good as possible. Well, it's almost summer here. Due to the climate change nature seems to skip spring and starts directly with summer. But hey, I've got a few nice photos to share and even a small video! Let's meet under the cut!

The snakes are back!






Spring arrived! Actually it could be summer already, because it's pretty hot for the time of the year. Anyhow, I visited the snake pond and was very surprised, that they totally rebuilded the pond. It was necessary, because the reed was overgrowing the pond and it wasn't that deep as it should anymore. It looks so bleak at the moment, but  nature will grow back and before you can say knife the reed will overgrow the pond again ;)
The snakes are still there, saw three of them, so it can't be that desolated like I think :)

"Oh, a crocodile!"



I like to do some bone/taxidermy swaps with other collectors, because there's so much more than just getting new stuff. I enjoy the exchange of stories behind the dead things and how people got them. Culpeo-Fox from over DA (https://culpeo-fox.deviantart.com/) isn't just an awesome artist, she even has a wonderful collection and we send us dead things at least once a year. And here comes a small story about that "crocodile" ;)

Pictures of the Day



Two "winter animals", a chamois and two goldfinch.
I know you are waiting for an interesting Blog entry but I'm so lazy these days, sorry.
