into the wild

Hi guys!

Well, not really into the wild but I got another picture-heavy post for you. Now you're like "Oh no, come on, not another food post." and I can tell you: no food today! But my second favourite photography motives, animals! Yay :)
Patrick and I visited the deer park yesterday. It's embedded in Düsseldorf's urban forest and provides us citizens with 40 hectares of wood and meadows to take a walk, look at the animals and escape from the hectic city.

Look at this little cat burglar, isn't he cute? Aww these little paws :D

This is my favourite photo! I love it! :)

It was so nice to see all the animals in appropriate enclosures, big enough for them to move freely, not these little cages that I've seen in several zoos before. And the animals are all so friendly, they come to the fences to take a look at who is taking pictures of them. They are really interested in their observers and the harmless animals are used to being fed by the people. However I didn't like that although there are instruction signs about how and what to feed, most people bring their kitchen waste to feed it to the animals. That's not cool because it's unhealthy for them. Try reading the signs you dumbasses! Humans are a stupid race...

When I wanted a jumping photo...

...Patrick wanted a jumping photo too :)

I must admit I'm not a friend of trips into the woods or fields, I respect nature but I prefer to leave her in peace for I know she causes me trouble if I come too close. What I mean is that I'm pretty allergic to almost everything nature has to offer: all sorts of pollen, straw, certain insect bites. Furthermore I have a major disgust for insects, I get a rash from sweating too much, I am a f****** sissy. BUT I enjoyed our little trip though, I can handle nature if it comes in small doses ;)

Mommy wild pig...

... and baby wild pig! This little fella was so photogenic and adorable :)

Yeehaaa xD

The wild pigs were what I liked most about the deer park, I just love how they grunt and guzzle and waggle their tails. The babies came so close to the fence, they almost got stuck in it with their little noses. And they squeaked a lot.
Another really cool animal was one of the red deers lying around near the fence. This was one relaxed deer. We passed its enclosure several times in three hours and this lazy animal never moved away from its place, not one single centimetre.

What was that again with the moss and the geographic directions?! ;)

I felt a bit like Dora the Explorer :D

What did you guys do yesterday? Most of you had a day off because of Pentecost as well right?
I hope you enjoyed the long weekend and the start into the new week!

Btw Patrick took some of the photos above. Thanks darling!
