Capybaras in Panama

When the physicist Shelden Cooper ruined his friends' lunch with the story of the faecal eating capybaras in the series Big Bang Theory, these cute giant rodents became somewhat unhappy. These capybaras from the guinea pig family certainly deserve more appropriate consideration - so it was a pleasure to watch these social animals in a marshland in Gamboa and to see how the adult animals shelter their offspring, they play with each other and together to search for information set out.

White-tailed eagles over the Trollfjord

White-tailed eagles are among the largest birds of prey in Europe and can hardly be confused either in flight, on the ground or in trees. In Norway we were able to take photos of them from our little house right by the sea, but the most impressive pictures were taken on a boat excursion to the Trollfjord, where we were able to take pictures of them hunting fish. The towering rocks were ideal as a background for the eye-to-eye recordings.

The snow monkeys of Yudanaka

The Japanese macaques of Yudanaka are also called snow monkeys. They love to sit in the hot springs in winter. But still in the 1950s, the monkeys were not doing well. They did the same in the nearby onsen and went straight to the hot baths with the guests. This was not for everyone, so the macaques were hunted first and their population shrank accordingly.
