A trip with Hildegard, to the mini zoo Tannenbusch.

Spring is coming, but the winter was cold and long, this year.

Today I look up to the sky
And you know why
Just like then, the sky is so blue
Just like then, I talk to you

In a language, you could not understand
As always, you know what I meant

What is there to say?
I hope you are okay
I am fine, but, yes, I miss you
In my thoughts, I smile and kiss you

Thank you for the signs you sent
Life goes on, after the end

A rainy day in the Krefelder Zoo

Hornraben (Bucorvus) sind eine aus zwei nahe verwandten Arten bestehende, in Afrika verbreitete Gattung aus der Ordnung der Hornvögel und Hopfe (Bucerotiformes). Sie ähneln, abgesehen von den nackten, roten und blauen Hautpartien am Kopf, großen Raben. Ihr Gefieder ist überwiegend schwarz. Lediglich bei fliegenden Vögeln ist sichtbar, dass die Handschwingen weiß sind. Anders als die nahe verwandten Echten Hornvögel sind Hornraben gute Läufer. Hornraben haben 15 Halswirbel, während die echten Hornvögel lediglich 14 aufweisen. Die Beine sind außerdem länger und sie weisen eine spezielle Sehne auf, die vom Becken zum Femur verläuft.

Zoo photography.

I always think it is a bit sad,  to photograph locked up animals.

It is different when you see the animals having a  good time

A wonderful day at the zoo with Hans Georg Bender

Enjoy the pictures

The advantages of going for a photo shoot with colleague photographers is that you can exchange photos. And when you are lucky, like I was this time,  you can even taste the luxuruy of using the ‚at my wishlist‘ lense,

This is the  amazing result., with my ’starter camera‘
