You are NOT allowed to use my photos in any form!!
You are NOT allowed to download them, to sell them, to show them on other websites, to edit them, etc.
If i should find my photos on another website, it will have serious consequences for you if you steal my photos, because they are copyrighted by me!!!

And i have seen that someone put some photos of mine on tumblr.
This is a no-no as well. I have my own tumblr account, if i would like to see my photos on tumblr, i would put them there by my own. Please DON'T put my photos on tumblr.
I don't want to see them there!

And since i get ask this a lot: No I don't sell my photos.
I just want to share them here on dA. I am not interested in selling them.



Hello and welcome to my Account.
I hope you will like my photos

What you will find on my account:
Nature photographs, like Zoo photos, super macro shots of spiders and insects, landscape photography of any kind (meaning landscapes in general, waterscapes and skyscapes), wildlife photography, pet photography, flowers, trees and plant shots etc.

About me:
I am a young female hobby photographer that lives in northern germany and who loves nature and all those wonderful animals that live on this planet. But it took me a lot of time, patience and love to be able to love nature and all those animals, especially spiders, like I do now. It was a fight i won and I am just so proud that I got rid of my immense fear i had of spiders. The moment I started to work with Spiders i realized how wonderful and interesting they are and they aren't as mean as many people tried to tell me. Quiet the contrary because spiders are very shy animals. Some are calm, some are lazy, some are very shy, some are curious, some are cute and some can react a bit aggressivly, just like us ;).

I want to show all you people out there the beauty of our planet with my nature photographs and I hope you will enjoy my photos as much as I love to take them :).

I am 25 years old and I started my photography 9 years ago :)
I still need to learn a lot, but I like watching my older works too to see if I have improved or not^^

I take photographs with love, passion and respect towards nature :3

I hope I can help people with my photos, who are afraid of spiders and want to change this like I did.
Please feel free to browse through my gallery and feel free to ask me anything you want to know.
But i must say this: I am NOT a proffessional ;). Every information I have learned about spiders I have learned by myself through the internet, in chats with other spider photographers and spider books.
And I don't know much about exotic spiders like Tarantulas. My knowledge is limited to European spiders.

And you will see me handling some of the spiders I have found in my gallery as well.
Please be very careful with handling spiders, especially if you are new to this.
Some spiders can react aggressivly and will bite you and some spiders possess a very strong venom that is able to harm or even kill a healthy and full grown human (but only a handful of spiders from all over the world are able to kill a human and most of them life in the bush). If you feel too nervous, unsafe or unsure of picking up spiders, please don't do it. This isn't good for you or the spider.If you are nervous the spider will be nervous as well and the spider CAN bite than. But remember: Spiders only bite when they feel threatened or if you hurt them. They will never bite you "just for fun" ;).

And this is for everybody who wants to comment on my photos:
I will NOT tolerate any hateful comments against animals.
If you don't like what you see then I ask you kindly to leave my page and move on.

And now please sit back and enjoy my photos

Follow me on Youtube:…



I am also a hobby writer (Fanfitcion and also non-Fanfiction). Don't worry, I am not a slash writer, because I don't like this stuff either. I post some of my fanfictions online and also here on dA, but I have a seperate account for this. If you have interest in my writing, feel free to ask me for the Link^^.
If you have questions feel free to ask me anything you want.

And one of the most important thing you should know about me:

I may be an atheist, but I am still pretty much interested in angels and demons. The story about Lucifer is very interesting to me and I read a lot about this angel and yes I like him, but for me he isn't real, just like god and his angels aren't real to me. Please understand and respect that. There is no need to shove your bible stuff down my throat...


Since i could lose my fear of Spiders they become one of my most favorites animals ever.
Along with Horses, Cats and a lot of other wonderful animals. :)

...because I am a mental mess right now, for I have been at the oncologist with my mom today and we didn't get good results this time.

Her tumor markers are going crazy. One month ago they were at 6500 or so and now they are at 9700 and her doctor doesn't know what causes this problem!! My mom has to get a MRI and CT scan done as soon as possible and we are all so scared that this fucking cancer spread! What if she now has lung metastases? Or pancreas metastases? or liver metastases???

She feels very well despite everything and nobody can tell what causes this sudden tumor activity. We can only hope and see what the medical examination results will tell us.

I am scared as HELL and I am not able to think rational anymore and thus I will be taking a small break from all social media accounts, for I am not able to concentrate on anything else at the moment.

I am crying while typing this, for the mental stress is unbearable for me right now. Since so many months I am a psychical wreck and I am already thinking about looking for professional help. I can't stand it anymore. To see my mom suffer from this fucking cancer every day...I can't anymore...

Thank you for understanding and see you later...

And please don't "pray" for us, for none of us believes in something like a "god". If god existed, he wouldn't let my mom suffer like this!</s>

I finally got around to upload the last photos of my first Bad Pyrmont Zoo photo set. I don't know with which photo set I want to continue. The next Bad Pyrmont set or the other zoos I went too.

But one thing is for sure: Since I am super busy in real life, it will take me some time until I get active here again ;). Please stay tuned though.
Have a little "roaring contest" between a male african lion and a Siamang:

I have filmed this in November, 2018, when I was visiting the small zoo in Bad Pyrmont (northern Germany) :)
I want a snake like "Pissy" :XD:

No but seriously. Would I own an own apartment I would consider getting one :3 (of course after learning as much as I can about this snake species ;))
What the hell is that????

And here I was thinking Venom was just fiction. Holy Moly! This is scary as hell!!! O_o
Finally got around to upload the video, where I have been feeding the arctic foxes. Here it is, if you are interested in it:

That was such a special moment for me, since I have never ever seen a fox in real life before and then, all of a sudden, I was allowed to hand-feed two of them :). That white foxy was super greedy :giggle:

They are eating peanuts and just ignore these annoying brats in the background or me and my mom talking to each other ;)
