Winter in the alpine zoo , Innsbruck

The Importance of ‘Enough’ Depth of Field in Wildlife Photography

It was snowing so I thought :”Oh great! Let’s go to the Alpenzoo”.

For Alpenzoo , go right
Ibex statue greets you at the entrance
Ducks warming their noses
Bear was feeling lonely
The great thing is that you can go in the voiliere , so no fence between you and the birds
Owls sleep in the day but still look creepy
This red hooded little fellow was quite shy – it took awhile untill I caught him with the cam
Mountain goats fly from rock to rock with such agility
Lynx was sleeping high perched on a pine tree
And again those cuties
Moose were being lazy
…while vultures were trimming their feathers
…and a little curious bird came to see us
…while another one was playing with the snow
Pray and Bearded Vulture all in the same cage
Ibex doing his cleaning too
…as the eldery were weary
…and the kids were feeding

Known as “the English grave”, this tombstone can be seen between the reindeer and the wild boars in the Alpine Zoo of Innsbruck .
The inscription says “here lays Richard H. Tooth, born in Coleshill, England.Ha was only 23 years old, but because of his illness he was taken care of by a friendly hand in the castle Weiherburg (the castle located next to the zoo) from sept 1939 to 20 febr 1940.

Buffalo and wolf
Oink Oink, mama swine was hiding her eyes with her ears
Beatiful view over Innsbruck covered with snow
Black stork
The founder of the zoo – Prof. Hans Psenner
Winter fruits
The Weiherburg
vis a vis of the Hungerburg furnicular there is this house in the woods

Now that I pay more attention to the lighting conditions, I have to say I was very lucky that day.
A cloudy sky , no harsh shadows, nice white , gray and brown colors with color splashes here and there. The photos look great next to each other. 🙂

This is my first ever photo story – I hope you enjoyed it .
