A western marsh harrier (Circus aeruginosus) circling above the bog areas in Lille Vildmose, Denmark, looking for potential prey.
In the famous fairy tale “The ugly duckling”, H.C. Andersen tells the tale of a baby swan hatched with a batch of ducklings, and how they call it an ugly duckling. H.C. Andersen apparently didn’t look too close at the baby swans, because they are not ugly at all. This one is approximately a week old. I watched the batch it belongs to being hatched a week earlier.
The two wolfs Iglo and Isak are brothers and can be seen in Bjørneparken (The Bear Park) in Flå, Norway.
Up close with a curious ring-tailed Lemur (Lemur Catta) in Odense Zoo. It is my daughters favorite animal and as a surprise we had arranged for her to get into their habitat and help feed them. I think that is a memory she will cherish for years to come.
