…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

For 23-V

The last 5 letters of Round 23 are on… time flies… in 5 weeks Round 24 will start, on the first Sunday in the New Year to be exact. 
If you would become part of the team… if you would like to design the new logo… just let us know… We are looking forward to the new round ofcourse and to all your entries. Hope you will stay part of this wonderful meme. 

First the Vulture… which we call “Gier” overhere in The Netherlands.
They are not present in the animalcollection of my hometown zoo but other zoo’s in The Netherlands do have them. This specific one lives in Dierenpark Amersfoort, about 1 & half hour drive from where I live. This photo was taken on july 21rst, the other photo’s of that day can/may be watched HERE

 

My second choice for the animal who’s name starts with a V is the Vampire Bat.
Just a week ago, sunday the 25th, I went to a German Zoo with 2 couples friends, to celebrate my birthday. There we saw those Bats… almost all of my pictures were wrong but one was quit acceptable… so that one I will share with you here:  The other foto’s of that day can/may be watched HERE

 

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!

…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

Do you know we’re running to the last part of this round? Including this S, 8 to go still… time does fly, doesn’t it? In just a couple of weeks Round 24 will start… how about that? Maybe a little earlie on both counts but I already want to thank you for your loyal participation and visits with comments and also I already want to invite you to stay on, or join if you’re new, to our meme! 
We love to may greet you and look at that what goes through your mind thinking of the letter wich turn it is.
By the way… writing this I come to think of it that I need to come up with a new logo and such… or is there someone amongst you who would love to design one?
If so, please let me know! 

Back to the present…

For 23-S

I’ve chosen 2 animals wich I like very much! Although I prefer birds above all, I really can not name, to be honest, 1 animal that is my nr.1 favorite. Besides birds…. these two are very special and delicate, gorgeous to look at, ‘just’ 2 of the wonderful species that live on our planet, 2 of so many.

These two animals I photographed in a Zoo, at a little 3 hours drive from where I live, from the north-east part of The Netherlands to the south-west part of it, Rotterdam to be precise. Blijdorp as it is called. I visit it twice a year but these two photo’s are from januari 2017, the other photo’s of that visit can be watched HERE 

The most mesmarising creature of the sea to me: The Seahorse… in Dutch we call them “Zeepaardje” unlike many other animals this animals name is liturally translated.

Secondly… the Serval, a very beautiful and rare feline. In Dutch we don’t have another name for it, we call it Serval also.

For 23-P

First of all the Panther. His name is Mowgli. He originates from my hometown zoo Wildlands Emmen but was moved, together with his wife Rica to another Dutch Zoo, Artis in Amsterdam.  June 28th 2017 they became parents by 2 little cubs. My last fisit to that zoo was on July 18th, just 3 months ago. Those little ones are almost as big as their parents by now. You may watch my other photo’s from that visit HERE

As you might know by now, my most favorite animals are birds. My number 1 bird is the Peacock.
The photo you see here, I made june 6th, not in a Dutch zoo though but in a German one, in Rheine to be specific.
The other photo’s I made that day can be watched HERE
