At a distance of 358,645 km, the moon already has supermoon level on April 26th, 2021, before it moves a further 1,300 km to the earth on April 27th, 2021 and gains another 0.5% in size. Its impressive size is of course especially impressive compared to known objects and there are many beautiful pictures to be seen on the Internet, in which the photographers have put a lot of effort into a successful composition.
Some motifs are difficult to plan and it takes a bit of luck to be in the right place at the right time. The project "Sun in the Fog" had been on the project list for a long time and it was more by chance that a beautiful series of photos was taken on the way from Margarethenhöhe up to the Löwenburg in the
Amphibians (Lissamphibia) such as frogs and toads belong to the order of the frogs (Anura) and are not easy to distinguish from one another.

Due to the narrowness between the Japanese islands of Shikoku and Awaji, the tidal range pushes the water at up to 20 km/h - the third fastest tidal current in the world. This is how the huge Naruto whirlpools with diameters of up to 20 meters are created under the 1.6 km long Naruto Bridge that connects the islands.
The black-browed albatross or Mollymauk (Thalassarche melanophris) from the albatross family (Diomedeidae) spends almost its entire life in the air over the Southern Ocean. We were able to photograph these wonderful birds in Saunders, one of the Falkland Islands, where a large colony of this species is situated.
The redshank is one of the snipe birds (Scolopacidae) in the order plover-like (Charadriiformes) and lives in almost all of Eurasia on coasts and waters. At around 30 cm tall, it is slightly smaller than its relative, the greenshank, when fully grown. In Germany you can easily see it on the Wadden Sea. Here it also likes to show itself in larger collections. We were able to photograph him directly from the house in Lofoten, where we could conveniently set up our 500 mm f / 4.0 Nikkor on the veranda.
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.
