    Zoo pictures (many pictures!), baby elephants, polar bears, and more

    On Monday, I visited the zoo of Hanover again; IMO, on of the most beautiful zoos in Germany with large enclosures for most of the animals, many of them resemble their natural environments. This time, I was really excited to go there because two elephant babies (a girl and a boy) were born in May, and three more babies will arrive during the year. The zoo got a new Australian Outback section, and the new Canadian theme world Yukon Bay has recently opened. You should really check the zoo's website, it's beautiful.

    However, it was a dark, rainy and cold day, so we were cold and wet all the time. Luckily, most of my pictures don't show it.

    As always, your pics are just magnificent. I don't think that you could take a bad picture even if you tried. It looks like you were right up "close and personal" in so many of the shots.

    Loved the polar bears - they are such stately creatures, and it's sad to think they are in danger of extinction if the environment continues the way it is going.

    And of course, my cute little favorites - the meerkats.

    Thanks so much for sharing "your" zoo with us.

    Thanks! But believe me, I'm taking many bad pics, it's just that I don't post them!

    Yes, so sad re. the polar bears. I fear the day will come when the only place left for them are the zoos. And they live under horrible conditions in many zoos!

    Meerkats are nice, I love them, too! And the three babies were so cute!

    Ahhhhhhh...............
    I love them all, well except for gorilla looks too human for me. But the lion, and tiger, and polar bear, and all the rest, such lovely lovely creatures, God bless them all.
    Your pictures are so good. I posted a few from the Columbus Zoo and now I am so embarrassed looking at yours, they blow mine away. But I did have fun at the zoo and can see you did as well.
    Nice to see that you are up and about and able to enjoy yourself and life.
