… Are happy to see the sun. Sometimes we are right on the same page as the animals.
I know this feeling. 🙂
What do you do when it’s a national holiday and everything is closed? You go to a museum. Today I really felt like going to see some rocks and fossils and animals, so I ended up here.
The buildings themselves are just amazing. This is the dome in the middle.
A fish with the best ever name
So many fish
And bugs… I love beetles. I spent a long time staring at the beetle collection.
Just amazing. This isof course just a tiny sample.
I got myself an annual pass, so that I can come back to explore more. It only cost 27 Euro. Really good value!
I made a visit to the museum of natural history last weekend, and they have this exhibition on that shows how animals around the globe are threatened by extinction. It was really nice… Seeing as they have a lot of stuffed animals there (as you do..) it was cool to see them used in such a way, to educate and tell a story, rather than to just document how they look. Worth a visit! You might want to go see a funny movie after that though..
I’ve been sharing some photos from my Instagram account that I took in Prater amusement park. For those interested, here is the link: Facebook page
Alright Lois, here is another one! I wanted to post this one but I remembered the situation differently than the photo actually looked… it’s not that much green in it. ANYWAY! This bad boy is called Hirschkäfer (deer beetle) and looks a lot nastier than it actually is. It’s big, true. But those massive antlers are just that: Antlers. They are for show, and of course also for battles with other Hirschkäfer (beetles). So they can’t bite you with them… I like them a lot, but don’t often see them around. What a Beauty!! (in memory of Steve Irwin).
