Mike & Co

Recently I went to Dierenpark Amersfoort again. They have beautiful animals. This time it was I enjoyed it a lot as usual. My absolute favorite in Amersfoort is Mike. Mike is a now alderlychimpanzee with a beautiful appearance. In 2015 I made my favorite photo of him (the last photo in this blog). Meanwhile the years are starting to count, I think. He is very calm and I have only seen action when there was something to eat.

Mike was the leader of the group in the past. He is still a full member of the group, but a son is now the new leader. There are chimpanzees of different ages in the group. The youngest is Wingu. A grandson of Mike.

I share a number of photos that I took. The first is one from Mike. This was the only good photo I made during my last visit. He was constantly right behind the window. Maintenance was carried out in front of the enclosure. He made a complete study of al the activity.

A photo of Wingu. He always has something naughty about him. I love it 🙂

It looks like a contemplation. I am always early and the chimpanzees are not really awake when I am there. Hence a number of photos that radiate tranquility.

A photo of Mike from 2015. He collected his favorite snack. It looks like it is smoking. So funny!

Curved beaks in Allwetter Zoo

Last Wednesday I went to Allwetter Zoo in Munster for the first time. What a beautiful zoo. Very nicely laid out and the animals are spacious and beautifully housed. The animals are active and look good. A lovely place to photograph. Also the interior rooms are spacious, nicely accessible, making this zoo a good place to go with less beautiful weather. Recommended!

I share in this blog photos that I made of birds with a curved beak that day 🙂

Kromme snavels in Allwetter Zoo

Afgelopen woensdag ben ik voor het eerst naar Allwetter Zoo geweest in Munster. Wat een prachtige dierentuin. Heel mooi aangelegd en de dieren zijn ruim en mooi behuisd. De dieren zijn actief en zien er goed uit. Een heerlijk plek om te fotograferen. Ook de binnenverblijven zijn ruim, mooi een toegankelijk, waardoor deze dierentuin ook met minder mooi weer een goede plek is om naar toe te gaan. Een aanrader!

 

Ik deel in dit blog foto’s die ik die dag gemaakt heb van vogels met een kromme snavel 🙂
