Comedy Wildlife Photography Award 2017

Finally it’s here! My absolutely favorite photography ranking of the year. The finalists of the third Comedy Wildlife Photography Award were announced a couple of days ago and I also wasn’t disappointed this year. Paul Joynson-Hicks (founder) and Tom Sullam (jury member and director of the award), who call this award the best and funniest ...

Brent Stirton wins the Wildlife Photographer of the year Award 2017

This year’s winning image of the Wildlife Photographer Award is not any image you would enjoy watching.

My “photographic dream” of Africa

Red soil, endless wilderness, breathtaking sunsets, amazing animals, freedom and adventures. All this and much more I can relate to my dream of Africa.

Animals hitching a ride: a crow riding an eagle

When I reported about that baby weasel riding along on the back of a green woodpecker in March, I was completely sure that that motif had been a truly singular photo opportunity. As two rather similar photos show, which have been published since then, animals hitching a ride happens more often than one would think. ...

Dances with Wolves: Monty Sloan, the Wolf Park photographer

Today I’ve managed to find another interesting YouTube video. Just like the title implies, it’s about a very courageous man, who cuddles with wolves, as if they were pussycats. The man in question is Monty Sloan, the Wolf Park photographer. At the time this video was shot, he was making photos of the main pack ...
