They bloom again! Late November and it is beautiful. I have three in three different colors. Red, white and salmon colored. Too bad they bloom such a short time. The rest of the year they will look a bit boring again. The salmon one had already withered after a week, so pictures of this plant were taken in November 2016. The red and the white still really try their best. These have flowers and buds in different stages. Fortunately, the photos remain.
The big cats are among my favorite subjects to photograph. Unfortunately, they’re not always the perfect model. Very often they are sleeping and in hiding or very boring. Sometimes if you are lucky, the eyes are open. And even less often they come into action. I share a collection of big cats from the past years. Taken in Artis, Noorderdierenpark, Ouwehands zoo and Dierenpark Amersfoort.
Alstroemeria A collection of flowers. I have not bought them for a while. Most of the photos are a few years old already. Partly new edited. So much color, beautiful stamens, really beautiful to photograph. They are also in the vase for a long time. What else coud we wish for….
Barbary macaques, they start their lives as wrinkly old people. Cute, but not really the prettiest. After a while they become funny playful and mischievous kids. Nice to look at! They love water. In warm weather you can see them playing in it in the Apenheul. As adults they enjoy grooming eachother, they look so relaxed. You then see those dreamy faces. Beautiful brown eyes can look straight into the camera. Click!
