Roter Vari

Roter Vari

Schon oft war ich in der Masoala-Halle des Zürcher Zoos. Bisher sah ich die Varis aber immer nur von weitem. Heute waren sie plötzlich von jeder Scheu befreit und kamen ganz nahe an die Besucher heran.

Male gorilla at Basel Zoo

Male gorilla at Basel Zoo

After having bought my first D-SLR I took a day off and went to the zoological garden in Basel in order to excercise the usage of the camera. Doing that I enjoyed a lot the gorillas. I like this picture so much because the gorilla does not look into the camera. Viewing upwards he seems being in a state of intelectual thoughts. Maybe he is thinking about how to get out of that house built of concrete. By the way: This picture is not black and white.

Observer

Observer

Using its sharp eyes this owl observes the visitors of the Animal Park Goldau (Switzerland). Unfortunately I have never seen an owl in its natural environment, so far. These birds know very well hiding themselves. So eighter you need a lot of luck or a tip of someone who knows where to find them.

Flamingo

Chance to take a picture like this one is best when visiting a zoo. That is one of the reasons why I go to zoos again and again, also when I am travelling like here in New Orleans.

Aligator in Louisiana

Aligator in Louisiana

For a change this is a more abstract motive: An alligator that is hardly visible under the thin plant layer. I could see lots of aligators in Louisiana.

Schmetterling

Schmetterling

Ich muss zugeben, dass ich weder eine Ahnung habe, um was für einen Schmetterling es sich handelt, noch um welche Pflanze, aber die Szenerie hat mir so gut gefallen, dass ich sie gleich verewigen musste. Gesehen im Papiliorama in Kerzers.

Chamäleon in der Masoala Halle, Zürich

Chamäleon in der Masoala Halle, Zürich

Es hat ziemlich grimmig reingeschaut, vielleicht lag es daran, dass es gleich den Weg queren wollte, um auf die andere Seite zu kommen. Dabei bleiben diese Tiere meistens auf "ihrem" Baum oder Strauch, ohne sich weit zu bewegen.
