Dierenpark Emmen: Butterflies

Dierenpark Emmen: Butterflies

After a long time not posting anything I have gone through my archives the last couple of days. I'll be posting a lot of photos the next couple of days to catch up.

Early last year I spend a day in the zoo in Emmen. By now the zoo has moved to a different location in Emmen and everything had changed. I haven't visited the new location yet, but I hope they have a similar butterfly garden as the old location.

WW2 vehicles

WW2 vehicles

At the end of my cycle vacation, as I was waiting in Harwich to board the ferry back to The Netherlands, there was a small army of old World War 2 vehicles also waiting to go to the Netherlands. They were going to Arnhem for the 70 year anniversary of the battle of Arnhem. Not a typical freight for this ferry. It made the wait much better.

Deer at Richmond Park

Deer at Richmond Park

After cycling along the Themes for 27 kilometers I rode through Richmond Park, a park/forest/nature reserve near London. The weather was very good, so in the middle of the park I stopped and sat in a field, eating lunch and reading.

After a few minutes I heard something move behind me. When I turned around there was a large deer a few meters away from me. I looked around and saw more deer all around me. I stood up slowly and got my camera from my bicycle bags. I got some nice shots of them. They basically ignored me and slowly walked passed while grazing.

After they passed I finished my lunch and rode on. At the exit to the park there was a sign. On it was a warning not to get too close to the deer, because they can feel threatened and attack. A bit hard when they surround you, but apparently they didn't think I was a threat.
