You are NOT allowed to use my photos in any form!!
You are NOT allowed to download them, to sell them, to show them on other websites, to edit them, etc.
If i should find my photos on another website, it will have serious consequences for you if you steal my photos, because they are copyrighted by me!!!

And i have seen that someone put some photos of mine on tumblr.
This is a no-no as well. I have my own tumblr account, if i would like to see my photos on tumblr, i would put them there by my own. Please DON'T put my photos on tumblr.
I don't want to see them there!

And since i get ask this a lot: No I don't sell my photos.
I just want to share them here on dA. I am not interested in selling them.



Hello and welcome to my Account.
I hope you will like my photos

What you will find on my account:
Nature photographs, like super macro shots of spiders and insects, landscape photography of any kind (meaning landscapes in general, waterscapes and skyscapes), wildlife photography, pet photography, flowers, trees and plant shots etc.

About me:
I am a young female hobby photographer that lives in northern germany and who loves nature and all those wonderful animals that live on this planet. But it took me a lot of time, patience and love to be able to love nature and all those animals, especially spiders, like I do now. It was a fight i won and I am just so proud that I got rid of my immense fear i had of spiders. The moment I started to work with Spiders i realized how wonderful and interesting they are and they aren't as mean as many people tried to tell me. Quiet the contrary because spiders are very shy animals. Some are calm, some are lazy, some are very shy, some are curious, some are cute and some can react a bit aggressivly, just like us ;).

I want to show all you people out there the beauty of our planet with my nature photographs and I hope you will enjoy my photos as much as I love to take them :).

I am 25 years old and I started my photography 9 years ago :)
I still need to learn a lot, but I like watching my older works too to see if I have improved or not^^

I take photographs with love, passion and respect towards nature :3

I hope I can help people with my photos, who are afraid of spiders and want to change this like I did.
Please feel free to browse through my gallery and feel free to ask me anything you want to know.
But i must say this: I am NOT a proffessional ;). Every information I have learned about spiders I have learned by myself through the internet, in chats with other spider photographers and spider books.
And I don't know much about exotic spiders like Tarantulas. My knowledge is limited to European spiders.

And you will see me handling some of the spiders I have found in my gallery as well.
Please be very careful with handling spiders, especially if you are new to this.
Some spiders can react aggressivly and will bite you and some spiders possess a very strong venom that is able to harm or even kill a healthy and full grown human (but only a handful of spiders from all over the world are able to kill a human and most of them life in the bush). If you feel too nervous, unsafe or unsure of picking up spiders, please don't do it. This isn't good for you or the spider.If you are nervous the spider will be nervous as well and the spider CAN bite than. But remember: Spiders only bite when they feel threatened or if you hurt them. They will never bite you "just for fun" ;).

And this is for everybody who wants to comment on my photos:
I will NOT tolerate any hateful comments against animals.
If you don't like what you see then I ask you kindly to leave my page and move on.

And now please sit back and enjoy my photos

Follow me on Youtube:…

I have a special fanfiction and "personal photos" accout here as well. I keep my nature photos and fanfictions apart (Don't want to "scare" my fanfiction followers with my spiders :giggle:) I mostly write about Supernatural, but I also write about other shows and movies I like.

I may be an atheist, but I am still pretty much interested in angels and demons. The story about Lucifer is very interesting to me and I read a lot about this angel and yes I like him, but for me he isn't real, just like god and his angels aren't real to me. Please understand and respect that. There is no need to shove your bible stuff down my throat...


Since i could lose my fear of Spiders they become one of my most favorites animals ever.
Along with Horses, Cats and a lot of other wonderful animals. :)

Well, even if not many of you people will care for that, but I post it anyways:

The canvas prints, which will be a Birthday gift for my real life best friend, are done and I got them today.

I planned to let my uncle print out three photos and he did that, but sadly I can't use one of the photos, since it came out way too dark and I really have no idea why this happened, but see for yourself:

These are the photos I wanted to have printed out on canvas:

In the Forest... by TheFunnySpider Labrador Portrait by TheFunnySpider

And that's how both of them look like now:

Print 2 by TheFunnySpider
As you can see this one turned out to be waaaaay too dark. Like I said: I have no idea what happened here.

But the other one looks great:
Photo Print 1 by TheFunnySpider
(Yes I was too lazy to get it out of the carton *lol*). I think this one looks really good.

I won't show you the third one though, because my best friend is on it and I am not going to post photos with humans in it ;).

I think I will keep the much darker one to myself, or I will ask my best friend if she wants to keep it anyways, when she will be visiting me the next time.

As for now I will give her the other two photos as a Birthday gift on friday.
I let her decide if she wants to have the other one or if she doesn't want to have it.

It's her decision.

It really is a shame that this print has been a big fail, since it was one of my most favorites from this day's photo shooting and my best friend loved it a lot :(.

But my best friend will get the digital photos so or so after her birthday, since we still want to chose one for her sister in law as a birthday gift and she can print the photo out on her own if she wants to. It's up to her then (and I hope all of this makes sense ^^;).

As for my general activity here: I am still on hiatus...
  • Listening to: Gregorian - Masters of Chant and The Dark Tenor
  • Reading: The Legend of Zelda - Twilight Princess Manga
  • Watching: Supernatural Season 12
  • Playing: The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess
  • Eating: Asian food
  • Drinking: Water


I am taking a break from this account...

The lack of feedback and the fact that you guys ignoring my words / asks for feedback over and over again is getting too much for me!

So bye, bye for a while...
I am ashamed that I have visted the Zoo in Hannover last year. Look what they do to the elephants there:

I will never visit this place ever again! This is horrible!
I will stay away from zoos now! Disgusting, just disgusting! I would love to hit those people with those sticks or that chain whip too!!!

I don't want to know what these a-holes do to the rest of the animals there...
Oh God why am I so in love with these songs and this damned show??

What a great show this is. Great humor and I just love this Lucifer :giggle: (Still need to finish Season 1 though ^^;)
