On our way from Inari (Finnland Lapland) to Olderfjord (Norway Lapland) we saw this strong polarlight (aurora) just 10 minutes after we passed the border from Finnland to Norway.

Late summer is the right time to find dead insects at home. Here we have a hornet which just fell down from the sky in the living room. I took the chance to make a close-up photo of this majestetic flying insect.
Photos were taken with the Pentax K1 II and the Pentax DFA 100mm F2.8 Macro.
European wood ants are not easy to photograph as they are fast and always busy doing stuff for their colony. I tried to make good photos of these beautiful ants often, but this time I literally focused on them very patiently using a full frame camera and a 180mm macro lens.

The Eastern Green Lizard (Lacerta viridis) is a very rare reptile species in Germany. It is one of the largest lizards in Europe and is certainly one of the most beautiful animals to be found in Germany. However, it is not easy to find it and that is a good thing, because it is strictly protected and threatened with extinction, especially in East Germany.
During late spring and early summer the males of these reptiles have very great colors with blue or turquoise colored heads and light green bodies.

Photos were taken with the Pentax K3 III and the Pentax 150-450 mm F4.5-5.6 in Berlin Spandau.
