It's like collecting stamps but much more alive. In my travels or local trips I try to catch pictures of all animals that crawl my way, fly, run, or otherwise come into the focus of my lenses. All pictures are taken in the wild, without tricks, just the camera and sometimes a flash (but only taking pictures of light-insensitive animals). More than 500 species and subspecies have come together over the last years. As far as I was able to identify the animals, I have listed these and linked to the corresponding page in Wikipedia. If a name should be wrong or imprecise (e.g. subspecies), I would be pleased if you could notify me by E-Mail
I am aware that the classification of animals, especially the birds and, in the classical sense, the reptiles, does not correspond to the present state of knowledge. However, I have renounced the birds to designate as dinosaurs, as well as I have eased the following pages and waived some taxonomy levels to simplify the structure. The page is about the animals and the determination of the species and not about the correct scientific representation of the taxonomy.
