A butterfly (Aricia agestis) sitting on a very decorative branch with autumnal orange leaves and blue berries. When the days get shorter and the nights gets colder Aricia agestis is one of the last butterflies of the year to frolic in the meadows near my hometown. The foliage of the bushes also heralds the coming autumn.

Since childhood I feel a strong bond with nature. When I started photography back in 2010, it was immediately clear that I would find my subjects in nature as well. From the very beginning I was particularly fascinated by macrophotography. Initially, I was more interested in large image scales, nowadays - in contrast to classical macro photography - I always try to put insects in direct relation with their environment and show them in their natural habitats, beautiful blooming meadows for example.
