We present high resolution VLA-observations of the nearby Low Surface Brightness Galaxy DDO 47. This object shows many hole-like structures in its neutral interstellar medium. The majority of the detected H I-shells are found to be expanding. Their origin is therefore believed to be due to stellar winds of the most massive stars and their subsequent supernova (SN type II) explosions within regions of recent star formation.
