posts about elephant.
recently we were in knie’s kinderzoo in rapperswil. judging from the huge amount of families, apparently a very attractive destination. and from judging the kids, they seem to like it a lot. here are some impressions:
for the third time, i visited calgary’s zoo on this weekend. this time, i bought an annual pass, so i will go there a few more times this year. this is a very good opportunity to try out my new toy, a 400 mm telephoto lens.
i began by visiting the red panda, watching him for quite a while.
after that, i went over to the siberian tigers.
on some pond, a few black swans were floating.
an elephant, bathing himself with sand.
the lions were pretty sleepy. but at some point, one lion got up and walked around a bit.
the grizzly bear was sleepy as well, and so was the black bear which was more brown than black. but i got a nice paw shot
the last times i was at the zoo, the wolves were rather sleepy. but this time, they were running around, playing, having fun. so i took the chance to take some pictures.
some random impressions.
