From childhood I have had a predilection for nature. I tried to grow plants that I found in the wild in my own garden, which usually did not work. I also always wanted to know a name of birds or other animals that I saw.
Now I am still crazy about nature and because I like everything nice and beautiful, I have never specialized in a certain species group … so I photograph everything I find beautiful or interesting. I am someone who knows something about everything and knows a lot about a few things and I am happy to learn every day.
Since I have a good macro conversion lens on my Canon Powershot, photographing small animals has become a lot more fun. A ring light was added later and now I can also photograph small animals in dark places. The springtails are still a major challenge. Someday I will also get a clear picture, but that may require an even stronger macro lens.
