Holy cow!

One of the statues stored inside the old Vauban fortification. Leftovers from the (catholic!!!)
cathedral, I believe.

CDP monthly theme day: abandoned

These are the 2 abandoned kittens we rescued in the last 8 years, In Cyprus and in Spain. Rio and Bundles.
How could someone have abandoned them at the first place??? Beats me.
More about the City Daily Photo blogs theme day here. And thanks, Peter, for not abandoning us! :-)

This guy was trying to entice his dog do come out of the river Rhine... Took him a long time, the doggy wanted to stay cool.

Not your average hotel...

This, ladies and gents, is a hotel. You cannot book it on your favorite website, as they only accept insects. A insect hotel indeed, open to anyone with more than 4 legs, I guess.
You wouldn't want to stay there anyway. Although I stayed in places with same crowd... Sigh, memories...

WATCH OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe the swan wanted some in-flight entertainment... You know: movie  (Pearl Harbor?), snack, attacking boats...
One of my rare snapshots.

Are you looking at me?

I found my way to the botanical garden this afternoon. Nice place indeed!!! Anyway, this little guy was looking at me. I stared back. He did not move. I went away. Guess he won.

Not a shy beggar!!!

Still at the Orangerie park... A hungry bird, a cotton candy lady. The bird seems to be a regular customer, as the lady was feeding him no candy, but mince meat. Which is not usually used  in cotton candy (oh well, what do I know... Different countries, different customs. Lol)

I am used to big grey squirrels, the not-shy-at-all kind. But what we have here is very different, smaller, brown, shy and much faster. A lucky and rare shot.

The baby

You might remember one of my first posts about these 2 storks, mum feeding the baby. Well, baby got big!

Some very photogenic swans I spotted this morning, enjoying the too rare sunshine. They were kind enough to pose for me.

Not just a big puss! Ce n'est pas un gros minou!

No no, it is actually actually a European lynx, a good-sized one. Mighty nice of to posing for me! Nice pussycat!

Ceci est un lynx de nos montagnes, pas vraiment le minou qu'on caresse dans la rue...

The eagle is about to land.... L'aigle va aterrir...

Did a bit of ''painting'' today, with my laptop. There is a ever so tiny zoo at the Orangerie park.

Un peu de ''peinture'', avec mon ordinateur. Dans le zoo rikiki du parc de l'Orangerie.

I saw quite a few elephants in my lifetime, last on a highway in New Delhi, but this is a first for me! He is HIP!

J'ai vu bien des elephants dans ma vie, le dernier sur une autoroute a New Delhi, mais celui-ci sort du lot!
