#3 and #5 for me, they are good despite the overall colour scheme of this series which simply doesn't appeal to me.

There are some sweet animal portaits here, the IR interest aside.

I think the canine is fascinating - the eyes. Is that a wolf or a dog? Such long legs! If this is a wolf, then was it dark like that in Visible light? I am just wondering in general whether furred animals exhibit any IR (or UV) characteristics.

I like the goose stepping out and the mom bird feeding the baby.

Hello Andrea, Bjørn and Fred, thank you for commenting!

@ Andrea: yes this canine is a real wolf, there was a complete pack of these, nice and agil looking animals, sometimes hiding, sometimes running to this spot, watching human game :D , but thankfully, there was a deep ditch in between. That is one of the shots in a park (perhaps for the dutch here around: this was in Gangelt, which is close to the border to the Netherlands). This shot was taken bright sunlight, as far as I remember.

Real wildlife is the crow (1), which was taken in the dark with only the light of the moon reflected from the snow on the ground (testing the limits of the sensor), then all the birds (2) to (6) and the cat (11), which was hunting on a meadow and which was totally concentrated to the ground.

The little ducks in (5) were quite upset: Three male ducks (drakes?) were endlessly chasing their mother and trying to actually rape her.

#4 blows me away but also #3 is very nice. Thank you for sharing.

I wouldnt have seen this thread if your photo wasnt nominated for POTW. Really a nice series of images.
