A Leafcutter Bee on Sainfoin by Pesch Andreas

This is one of these pictures, that you take when you think you will photograph something absolutely different. I wanted to take pictures of birds or deer for example. That’s why I had the 600mm lens on my camera. When I saw this small bee on the beautiful sainfoin I thought I could try with 600mm. I think the result is quite okay.

In the 1960s and 1970s Pesch Andreas took pictures of his class and the environment with SLR in black and white, developing the pictures in the family cellar. Later photography was more and more forgotten. In was around 2015, when Andreas started taking pictures from “Magdeburg Knabenchor” a boy’s choir where his son is singing. Later he took his camera with him, whenever he went out with his dog. With the start of pandemic situation there was more time and wildlife photographing stared to be like hunting: getting good pictures was more and more satisfaction and therefore more good gear had to be bought and more experience had to be made. That’s where he is now and experience will go on.
