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

For 23-Y

First of all:
A very merry Christmas to all of you!
From the bottom of my heart I wish you well and hope that your Christmas will be the most beautiful one, heartwarming one, you’ve ever had so far! That all your dreams will be fullfilled!!! 

Three animals names start with Y but from two of them I don’t have any photographs.
The Yorkshire Terrier is one and the other is the Yellow-Eyed Pinguin… which I never have seen in the zoo’s I visit and have visited so far.
The third animal who’s name starts with an Y is the Yak…
And in a Dutch Zoo you can find them. Specificly in Ouwenhand Zoo in Rhenen. about 2 hours drive from where I live and which I have visited 2 times last week, first on Monday and second on Friday.
I don’t normaly do that but there was a misunderstanding between the people who accompanied me both times so we did not want to make to much fuss about it and also don’t miss out on 2 special visits so we went both times.
My album from Monday can/may be watched HERE
and my album from Friday can/may be watched here.
They are both very different from eachother!
The album from Monday shows my photographs in daylight.
The album from Friday shows photographs made in the evening, in the dark… due to a Chinese exhibition with lots and lots of little lights, so enormously beautiful to see!!

 

 

 

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

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.
