Hagenbeck Collection

In order to lighten up the bleak wintertime, here is a collection of images from Hagenbeck that is practically bursting with colour. Most of them are from the end of last year, but some are from last weekend. I haven’t been very regularly to Hagenbeck lately as I have been trying to answer questions for myself that I wrote about extensively on this blog.

Still last week I just had to get out of my apartment, so I enjoyed this slightly guilty pleasure at the zoo. As it was a sunny winter’s day, the zoo was packed with people, which was a bit too busy for my liking. Still, this is a nice collection, I think and the pictures might even lighten the mood on a dreary day.

As always, enjoy!

Back again at Hagenbeck’s Tierpark, there was quite a commotion because of four new Siberian tiger babies that even CNN cared to talk about. As I’m free at the moment, I could take the time to stand outside their compound for hours just to take some pictures. Perhaps interestingly, this caused me so much backpain that I had to have my vertebrae reset. Oh well. I think it’s not much compared to the attention the kittens had to endure. Apart from that I made friends with some other photographers there who I went with, which was a good amount of fun and some very expensive equipment got wheeled around between the three of us. But more on that later. First, it’s tiger-cuteness-galore. Enjoy.
