Went to the Schönbrunn Zoo in Vienna and caught this fella. Even though I found it, along with some of its mates, in the zoo, I'm not sure it's part of the exhibit. They may just have been visiting, enjoying the cute animals.

Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna, as seen from the Schönbrunn garden.

This was a lovely day, although the trip back to the hotel felt a bit like drowning at times.

Baboons from Copenhagen Zoo. Our distant cousins are often endearing exactly because they remind us of ourselves. Pictured is a three young ones, the rightmost one holding tightly on to the chest hair of his mother, much like young human kids hold on tight to the chest hair of their mothers while screaming at their friends.

So you only have a picture of the one? Strange, it looks like it is just one of vari-ous individuals.

Tigers, the large cuddly cats of the savannah. Just as lovable as your ordinary household cat and just as deadly - given the chance they will pounce on you in a ferocious cuddle attack (pictured).

Awesome photo! I think I might prefer a portrait crop though, e.g.  http://imgur.com/KL2KCwP

This is pretty interesting and all... What gets me about this video though is that a lot of feminists I have heard lately would positively castrate this person for violating the women - if she were a guy... Being a woman, hitting on strangers on the street is just fine!

Wow! LOL! Actually, I'm not all that surprised at the reactions. Women, in general, seem to have their defenses up when it comes to males, but not when it comes to females. The reaction seems to be one of "I'm flattered, even though I'm not interested in actually doing anything with you, I'm intrigued that you're showing an interest in me." So they're polite and accommodating. If it were a man, they would be wondering if he's a rapist or just crazy for being so bold, given the fact that this is happening outside of the normal "pick-up" locales.

A male reaction to being hit on by another guy would be quite different. We wouldn't see it as flattering, but as a threat to our manhood. If the guy was as persistent or bold as the woman in this clip, our reaction might be to fight.

A giraffe running around in the hostile territory known as Copenhagen Zoo. Audio is muted since it's mostly just people talking and the IS on my lens.

Disclaimer: No giraffe gets mauled in this video, however one might get slightly exhausted.

Too bad that international zoos - and among them the Copenhagen Zoo - so vigorously mind the gene pools of their inmates. Wouldn't it have been much more fun to see a giraffe running around with two heads?
By the way it is so wonderful how the animals nowadays have habitats with room enough for natural behavior. I remember how giraffes in the same zoo in my childhood had about 10 X 10 meters to roam about in. 
Also tigers and other big cats only had a couple of meters to pace back and forth.

And so one of my photos apparently hits the What's Hot section of Google+, something I haven't experienced before, and while I'm of course very happy for all of the attention I can't help but be a little bit confused that this was the picture that made it and intrigued  about how long the plusstorm will continue, and I'm all like...

My friend, who is still struggling with the technical details of photography, went here to upgrade her lens to one more sensitive to light. She told the clerk she needed this to photograph at events. However, they didn't have what she needed, but through a very convincing sales pitch she got the spectacularly bad advice to upgrade to a slightly better lens with a more limited zoom and the exact same f-stop. At great cost. This is one of the more expensive brick and mortar stores in Copenhagen, and if you can't go there when you are unsure of what you need you are better off shopping online or at least somewhere else. A single star added for reversing the deal when we came back 20 minutes later.

Went there for lunch. The very nice waiter recommended the daily special, a New York strip steak sandwich, which I ordered. The sandwich smelled incredibly spoiled and I had to send it back. Ruined my appetite completely. They have a very impressive milkshake menu, including classics such as bacon pancake flavour or captain crunch. I chickened out with a caramel, which was ok, except for the ending which most of all resembled butter. I won't be coming back.

Fairly expensive, but they serve the best cocktails in town, and the service is always top of the line!

An adventure into the world of seafood. Try the seafood special! €27 is expensive for an appetizer, but it's worth every cent. Great atmosphere, competent waiters. If you're willing to spend a little extra, this won't disappoint!
