Bee: A bee is starting from a dandelion. Even 1/2000 second exposure time is too long to make the wings visible. Maybe try using a flash next time. Nikon D3, 1/2000 s, F/10.0, 105 mm, ISO 800, Wednesday, April 6, 2011 12:35:17

Flying Seagull: A seagull is flying over river Aare near the Schachen island at Brugg. It is a test shot with my used bought Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 and Nikon TC-20E II teleconverter. The autofocus catched the wing instead of the head why it is not properly focused. Nikon D3, 1/1000 s, F/5.6, 600 mm, ISO 220, Friday, April 27, 2018 08:31:16

Swan Cleaning: One of the tree swans on the river Aare near Vogelsang AG. It is a test shot with my used bought Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 and Nikon TC-20E II teleconverter. There's very little depth of focus when it is fully open. Nikon D3, 1/4000 s, F/3.2, 300 mm, ISO 200, Friday, April 27, 2018 09:28:24

Swan with Drops: One of the tree swans after putting its head under water for searching food. It is a test shot with my used bought Nikkor 300mm f/2.8 and Nikon TC-20E II teleconverter.

Brugg at Sunrise: One hour later, the rising sun transforms the skyline of the city Brugg into pure gold. Maybe a shot around equinox time will produce better shadows from the trees in the foreground because the river Aare flows here from west to east. Nikon D3, 30 s, F/11.0, 48 mm, ISO 200, Monday, May 7, 2018 06:36:05

Ant with Lice: Unfortunately the ants are caring carefully for the lice on my sage. They are usually milking them to get a sweet liquid. This ant is drinking from a rain drop. Nikon D850, 1/250 s, F/32.0, 210 mm, ISO 64, Wednesday, May 16, 2018 18:46:13
