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, mostly of spiders. But I also take photos of other animals like wild animals, insects of any kind, birds and pets. And sometimes I take some landscape, skyscape or waterscape photographs.
Here and there a few random shots find their way into my gallery as well like nature related clothes or jewelry.

About me:
I am a young female hobby photographer 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

Wow it has been almost 6 years since I have been visiting our Zoo.

I am honestly not a huge fan of zoo's, because every time I visit a Zoo I'm of two minds, because on the one hand zoo's are great, because they protect animals that have become rare in this world, but on the other hand I can't stand seeing those animals in those...cages I might say. It tears my heart apart and I prefer wildlife parks much more, because the animals over there are so satisfied, have much more room to move and I even say they are happy. One example: The wolves. The wolves I have seen today were so tense, while the wolves in our wildlife park are totally relaxed. And this is just one example...

Yeah but everyone thinks differntly about zoo's. That's just my opinion.

As for our visit today: My mom decided to try out the late-zoo, because you only pay 9 € when you come later.
The whole thing starts at 4:30 PM. It was great, but sadly we hadn't had much time to see everything, since our zoo is HUGE and 4 hours are not enough to visit everything and sadly a lot animals weren't outside in that time *sighs*

But those who were outside and those we have seen were absolutely amazing :).

Me and my best friend had some very nice experiences with the
Have you ever been bitten by a pelican before? Man that hurts if they REALLY bite down! Ouch!
But those god soooooo soft. Almost like silk :love:
And we had a very great experience with some goats. My best friend found a goat's tickle spot. :giggle:
And there was an adult reindeer that wanted to drink milk from a female reindeer. I got that on photo. Never seen anything like this before!

It was a great trip and I am looking forward to share some photos with you, but please give me time to do that, because I have taken a total of 902 photos and I need to look through every single one of them to sort the best photos out, put my watermark on those I want to upload and stuff like that and this will take me a while ;).

I hope there are a few good ones among so many photos...
  • Listening to: Gregorian - Masters of Chant
  • Reading: Nothing at the moment
  • Watching: Supernatural
  • Playing: Nothing at the moment
  • Eating: Not much
  • Drinking: Water


I am going to start uploading my zoo photos soon. But since it's too much I will upload a particular species every day. For example: Today I might upload birds, tomorrow elephants etc. ;).
I thought I might share this super amazing song with you:

I have seen it live and I have to say: These guys sung it much better than the original from ACDC. Gosh I love the Masters of Chant so much :).
Guys could you PLEASE stop complaining about my watermark? It's slowly getting onto my nerves and I WON'T make it smaller, deal with that. These are MY photos and when I decide to put a huge ass watermark on them then so be it. If you don't like this, then you should stop looking at my photos, simple as that...
