An Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) hunting above the 'Oude Waal' in the Ooijpolder near Nijmegen on september 19th 2008. The sound quality is very poor, both due to the wind and the noisy cars, but it might be worthwile to turn on the sound for the second dive so as to hear the splash. A photograph of the Osprey can be found in the Birds page of the pictures and videos section.

On the Might of Princes playing on the 20 year anniversary party of the Goudvishal, a former venue in Arnhem, the Netherlands, on april 25th 2004. The 20 year anniversary party didn't take place in the Goudvishal itself though, but in the Musis Sacrum, also in Arnhem. This video shows a bit (the ending) of the song "For Meg", one of my fav songs by this band. The video was taken by Kevin from I can be seen for a sec as well, skinny guy with a sleeveless shirt and a tattoo on the upper arm. :) Thanx Kevin for taking this! It still gives me goosebumps, regardless of the not-so-great (...) sound quality. Too bad this band called it quits in 2004, I'm glad I got to see them before that though... Check out the entire song on if you want.

The ovipositor is kept in the long sheath when not in use that points backwards regardless of the ovipositor being in use or not. Filmed july 6th 2008.
