Mergansers Are Back on Lake by Pesch Andreas

Every day I try to go out to our quarry ponds, which are quite near to river Elbe. Some days it’s full of life, especially during autumn when migrant birds are coming back. That afternoon at around 5 pm I saw these mergansers for the first time, and they showed off very macho.

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.
