Recently, I didn’t find a lot of time to update my blog. But today I have at least a little bit of time and I thought I share a picture with you. I found this photo of a rabbit in my library and I shot it a while ago in our district. I mentioned it a few times on my blog, we have quite a few rabbits here. Not as much as back then but we still have some. They do either run through the shrubs or like ín the picture, they’re often on the lawns. Continue reading Rabbit

Happy Easter

It’s easy to find rabbits in our districts. When I was a child, we had hundreds of them roaming around on the lawns in front of our apartment blocks. Over the decades, they became less due to a disease but then again, it’s still possible to find them. I found the rabbit a few days ago and thought it would be a perfect fit for an Easter theme post. So, Happy Easter to you guys! Continue reading Happy Easter

Baby Chicken

Above is a photo that I shot in our garden last summer. The husband of my mother has chickens, and they did breed. The result was a small gang of very cute baby chickens. I shot many photos that I didn’t edit yet but the photo in this post is a nice close up shot that I took with my Tamron 70-300mm lens. I also edited the image a bit. I cropped the image, added a lens vignette effect so that your eyes are more focussed on the bird, and I played with the contrast values because the original had … Continue reading Baby Chicken

Frog In The Garden

Last time I visited my mother and her husband in the garden, I noticed a frog in their pond. There is a protection net over the pond so that predator birds can’t grab fishes out of it, which means I had to shoot photos through the net. But that is possible as I learned in a similar situation back then in 2016. I find it cool that you can shoot photos through close meshed things like fences, protection nets or any kind of grids. By the way, I didn’t take a lot of frog photos nor did I upload a … Continue reading Frog In The Garden

European Rabbit

Here is a photo of a European rabbit also called common rabbit as I found out on the English Wiki page. We always had lots of them on the lawns in our district. When I was younger, it was always funny when I invited school friends from other districts who then were amazed to see so many rabbits in my district. I always thought it would be normal, but then I learned not every district had so many of them. Just over the last years the population declined heavily in our district, at first I didn’t notice it, but then … Continue reading European Rabbit
