  • Egrets

I really have little experience with star photography, but apart from that it was really a great experience. [effortless-gm address=”52.690464, 12.232475″ size=”900×500″ zoom=”18″ view=”satellite”]

  • Kestrel


    Kestrel tercel on the former airfield Berlin Tempelhof. We had rather bad weather and Light, but I like the shot. This guy was really trusting for a wild bird of prey. And as a bonus “his wife” ;)
