Welcome to "Birds and Nature Photography in Cyprus"
" Some people think that wildlife photography is a hobby, a pastime.
In reality it is exactly the opposite, a sort of purpose in life".
*Fritz Pölking, Natur photographer, Germany
We have not inherited this earth from our parents to do with it what we will.
We have borrowed it from our children
On my website "Nature of Cyprus photography.com" you will find a lot of information, photos and videos about the fauna and flora of the island of Cyprus in the eastern Mediterranean. Especially the bird life of the island with interesting endemic species and the large number of migratory birds are the focus of my photography and video works. But also, macro shots of the insect world as well as landscape photography and time-lapse shots are a focus of my work with the camera.
Many photo and video recordings have been published in TV productions, magazines, books and in support of nature and environmental groups.
But especially here on the holiday island, nature is under great pressure, especially due to more and more tourism projects, which are currently being promoted again on the designated national nature reserve "Akamas Peninsula". Equally badly affected is the Akamas Peninsula with the largest wetlands and the large Salt Lake, a retreat and breeding area of many bird species, reptiles, insects and very rare plants.
Unfortunately, government agencies do not consider "Natura 2000" protected areas designated by the EU. Violations of EU law are all present, perhaps this should also become a discussion in the EU Parliament about withholding EU funds for violation of the rule of law.
Take a look around my website, there is a lot to discover on the small, sunny island of Cyprus.
I wish you a lot of fun on my website.
