Throwback Thursday: Terrazoo


Yellow-banded poison dart frog (Dendrobates leucomelas) / Gelbgebänderter Baumsteiger aus der Familie der Pfeilgiftfrösche

In January 2011, I was visiting a Terrazoo with some friends. Very interesting animals were living in the glass containers, called terrariums.

Take care!

Monochrome Madness 3-14

600_2153-cht_wMissing the summer so much 😦

We freeze in the wet, while in southern Europe forests are burning and they miss the necessary rain as much, as we miss the warmth and the sun.

This is a poor gorilla. Although, he (or is he a she – I don’t know) is not alone in the inclosure, she looks very depressive for me. I guess, she’s not happy, being captured. We’re not happy, because we miss a real summer here.

The image is from the same zoo visit, as the lion, two weeks ago.

I guess, it’s a Grauer’s gorilla, formerly known as the eastern lowland gorilla (Gorilla beringei graueri). I didn’t take any notes while there.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site, to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers.

Take care!
