50k followers special! This is my personal all-time favorite photo. It's taken in May 2017. This is where it all began. After that day I realized wildlife photography is the thing I love and what I really want to do. During the year I've been so lucky and privileged to take all the photos and grow my account to this size. I wanna thank every single one of you for joining the journey! This is only the beginning. Stay tuned 🤘

Throwback to the warm summer mornings ~ I have photographed this young fox only once. It's the brother/sister of the one I've been mostly taking photos this autumn. I wonder where he/she is now 🦊

You don't always need an expensive DSLR-camera to capture the nature around you. This one taken with OnePlus5 📱 Which camera/phone you use for photographing?

Midnight pose 💃~ One of the most difficult photographing moments with this guy. It was dark already when I saw him doing these photogenic stretches. I had my 35mm lense, set the aperture to f/1.4 - ISO 10 000 and shutter speed almost half second long. I took several shots with the burst mode and luckily one of them was sharp 👌

I waited over an hour for Bilbo to come pose on this stick with a perfect lighting. And when he finally came he decided to pull of some insane dance moves. #bilbothemouse

During this year I've been able to take photos of 7 different foxes. This one I call "the mother". She is the mother of the young fox I've been photographing this autumn.
