shorticus [Leuchtturm am Fasanenschlösschen Moritzburg] This beautiful lighthouse is the only one of its kind in Saxony and Germany's oldest inland lighthouse. It was used for re-enactments of naval battles to entertain August the Strong and his entourage in the 18th century. 19h

shorticus [A Year Ago: fall strolls at Sandy Creek Nature Center, Athens, GA] It's been an awfully cold, grey and rainy November day in Germany, and I am thinking back to these wonderfully mild fall days in Georgia. This is the first "A Year Ago" photo of many to come ... 7d

shorticus The scent of spring in the middle of fall! I went for a walk to take photos of colorful leaves - and found spring. At first I only noticed a wonderfully sweet scent and it took me a moment to actually find its source: a shrub in full bloom. I haven't found out yet what species it is. 2w

shorticus After thirteen months of living and working in Athens, Georgia, I am back in Europe. I already miss the South; its wonderful climate, people, landscapes and food. I guess it'll take some time to adjust back to a life in Germany, but at least I should finally be able to find more time for posting some of the thousands of photos I have taken. 1mon
  •   shorticus Haha, yes, I was gone and now I am back again @elliotx ! It's been the best year of my life, full of adventures, new places and new people. 1mon

  •   love_lien heyyyy how are you? where are you? 2mon
  •   shorticus Heyyyyy @love_lien ! I am spending my very last night in Athens, Georgia. I have been travelling the last six weeks and now can't believe that my 13 months here are over already. I am really really sad about having leave, in particular now in the middle of my favorite season. Wish I could stay at least till Thanksgiving ... How are you?? 1mon

  •   shorticus Thank you @rlopp ! 3mon
  •   shorticus Dankeschön Gerald! Du hast völlig recht - die sind riesig! Manche sind so groß, dass man im ersten Moment denkt, es sind Vögel, die die da umher flattern. Ich habe irgendwo auch ein Foto mit meiner Hand als Größenvergleich. Ich gehe es mal suchen und poste es - zumindest "temporary". @fizzge 3mon
