What the chamois in the Vosges mountains are, the ibexes at Creux du Van in the Jura mountains. When the crowd wanders back towards the valley, the ibex comes out of the forest and grazes joyfully on the meadows of le Soliat.

Monday night thoughts: I'm quite obsessed with the idea of photographing a european wildcat here in my region, and i'm quite frustrated, because we still don't have a result from the 3 month hair trapping monitoring project. Our lead biologist got some new information about wildcats in a nearby floodplain forest. I just need to go on and hope that we get real proof and i can catch one with my camera trap 😀.

Throwback to one of our first trips to kenya - To see our first leopard in the wild was a really special moment. We were really happy, and enjoyed the moment with all our senses. As the leopard disappeared into the bushes we knew that we want more and that we were "infected" with the "wild cat virus" 😺

I had some serious problems with my flashes of my dslr camera trap - The flashes only fired from the second frame. Thanks to Jeff from cameratrapper.com and trlcam.com @trlcam he helped me to solve the problem. I finally installed the DSLR camera trap again in the woods. After a couple of days i finally got some other captures.
.
1. European pine marten (Martes martes)
2. European red squirell (Sciurus vulgaris)
3. Me, testing the installation 😂 .
.
Unfortunately i'm still not a 100% happy. First of all, i couldn't capture one of "my object of desire", European wildcat or Eurasian lynx, secondly in the first picture is some ambient light competes with the flash and it is a bit out of focus, the second picture too is a little bit out of focus. So there is still room for improvement and i hope to get better captures the next days 😊

At the end of May, beginning of June, the chamois give birth to their kids. We were fortunate enough to see a herd of 8 chamois raising their 10 15-day-old kids.
They have chosen their location carefully: Clear on rocky terrain, on one side a steep rock face, on the other a steep slope, difficult to reach there for "uninvited" guests. The chamois share their tasks: Some take care of the little ones, the other guards are watching over the herd and others are grazing comfortably. If a mother is killed, other females in the herd may try to raise the kid.

I don't often do landscape captures, but yesterday evening the atmosphere in the vosges mountains was incredible. I had to take a picture.

The last weeks we weren't able to go out to take pictures a lot, because we were to busy at work - Luckily we are back now in the Vosges mountains looking for wildlife. Of course we visited the chamoise first, after our encounter over easter holidays, earlier this year. Surprisingly we did not have to search for long...

When it comes to zoos im quite torn: on one hand there are a lot of zoos doing a great job for the protection and conservation of animals on the other hand there are a lot of bad examples and the enclosure for the animals is often quite scarying. Although, we took the opportunity to visit „John‘s kleine Farm“ where they raised two european lynx brothers which were an animal welfare case some time ago: born in a circus and then taken away by the authorities they were raised here. This one in the picture is Mojak. To be this close to this animals were really special for us, they really are amazing animals. I can‘t understand the hate they get from some humans. . #nature_sultans #nature ##wild #wildphoto #wildlife #wildlifephotography

I finally installed my DSLR camera trap in the woods. I installed a Nikon D5500 in a pelicase box, a Trailmaster TM550 PIR trigger and 2 Nikon SB-28 for this installation. Meant for bigger mammals, unfortunately only this wood mouse 🐁 came by every night, but no other animal. Although the mouse is quite cute 🐭 i guess i need to adjust the sensor sensitivity to avoid smaller animals 😉. I hope to capture other animals soon
