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 lots 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 work. But also macro shots with insects, reptiles and landscape photography with panoramas and time-lapse shots are a focus of my work with the camera.
Many photos and videos have been published in TV productions, magazines, books and in support of conservation and environmental groups. Especially here on the holiday island, nature is under great pressure, especially due to construction and tourism projects.
At present it is a question of preserving the Natura 2000 protected area, which is actually designated as the "Akamas Peninsula" national nature reserve. Equally endangered is the Akrotiri Peninsula with the largest wetlands on the island and the large salt lake.
The Akrotiri Marsh is a "Natura 2000" protection zone and retreat and breeding area for many species of birds, reptiles, insects and very rare plants. Unfortunately, violations of EU law are all the rage and more and more, for reasons of profit, no consideration is given to "Natura 2000" protected areas designated by the EU.
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.
