Hello Axel, I painted a water color from one of your photographs and was wondering if I need to ask permission to paint one to sell? I know nothing about such things, but don't want to my any means interfere with your art.
Do I need copywrite permission from you?
Thank you.
Your work is simply wonderful!

Incredible work of art here!
Keep up sharing us more of your great wildlife photos.
Guest 25-May-2010 21:02
It was firstly Axel and honor to meet you today and to do some photography as well. The next time you come down give me a heads up and we can cover a lot more ground and do some more species as well. It was really nice meeting you Axel. I know that you don't remember me from BPN but as I said you were one of the better moderators on that site, and if you go back to find me I think that you'll remember, agin it was great.

I found it very interesting to see the progress from back yard bears with an XT to really suberb bird photos with a big lens and a big camera. Great stuff Axel and thanks for sharing. Two other items I noticed were most of the photos were taken early to mid morning, and I did not see any reference to a flash being used. It was very educational and thanks again Axel.

Tolle Fotos!
Hilke Breder 17-Feb-2008 20:14
Okay, I found the EXIF data; not sure how could have missed them when I first looked!
Hilke Breder 17-Feb-2008 20:09
I love your bird photos! They are fantastique. What equipment are you using? What camera? Digiscoping? Telephoto? It would be nice if you could include the EXIF data on your photos.
Lothar H. 03-Feb-2008 11:21
Habe mich mal wieder umgesehen Axel - sind viele neue tolle Fotos zu betrachten - Klasse!

Great work. I'm just getting into bird photography myself, and this is a great example of what I should aim for.

Some of the best birding photographs I've ever seen, you've clearly got a special talent.
Your galleries are an inspiration, keep on sharing.

Hi Axel;
I just started bird photography in the past year. The best compliment I can give you is that I wish I had taken many of these photos. Great Work!

I admit you got talent. Now I'm jealous.

Nice Gallery

Superb galleries. You have a stunning collection of bird photographs. Very well done & thankyou for sharing. I shall return soon for another look.

Hi Axel
I'm glad I came across your galleries, you have some superb Bird shots. Definitely added to my favourites list!

Ivan Cholakov21-Dec-2006 19:57
Amazing collection of nature shots! Great color and sharpness of photos!
Joel McNeal19-Dec-2006 01:46
Axel, these photos are great. I'm jealous of your backyard with bears; it makes me miss my grad school days of living in central PA (for now I'm stuck in urban Somerville). Great macros, great birds, mammals, etc.

And thanks for your kind words on my photos as well. If you want alcids, a trip to Machias Seal Island won't disappoint. The puffins and razorbills were often too close for my 400 mm lens.
Larissa 03-Nov-2006 03:58
Gute Photos, echte Photos, schöne Photos, so schön als man sie nur verlangen tun kann, wir haben schon lange so kein gehabt! *g*

Deine Photos sind ja toll, besonders die von den Streifenhörnchen! Deine Eltern haben Recht: du bist zu begabt (talentiert?) unserer Professor zu sein! Aber ich freue mich natürlich immer, dass du uns noch lehrt. Bis Dienstag, Axel! Schönes Wochenende!
Toon de Smit26-Sep-2006 17:22
Wow! the time you invest certainly pays off!!
Great galleries Regards, T

Rich Westfall11-Jul-2006 17:39
Axel, I too would like to know what lens you are using. Your macros are great. 27-May-2006 22:20
Brilliant. Freaking brilliant. Ian Schwartz. 19-Apr-2006 14:33
Fabulous site.
Harry David Horning29-Mar-2006 02:45
Axel, I do believe you have some of the best wildlife photos on Pbase. I am amazed at your small bird photos! I keep seeing your lens is 420 mm, are you using a 300 with a 1.4 TC for these? Keep up the great work, I will be in your gallery trying to learn.
Ton, Ben & Rob Nagtegaal25-Feb-2006 17:53
Hi Axel, you've got some great gallery's.
Nice work.
Gr Rob
chris jones 20-Feb-2006 15:43
hi axel great bird photos pin sharp i wanted to know what lens you use iv noticed they are taken at 420 mm so are you using a 300 mm lens and 1x4 converter and if so wich 300 is it the 300 4.0 or the 2.8 any info would be of great help to me as im just starting out to take bird photos too.
