This is my year – #23 – 230115

Nürnberg Tiergarten (Nuremberg Zoo)

Back in November on a nice Autumn day we went to check out Nuremberg’s zoo. It was a lot bigger than I was expecting, and the large grounds means that they can be fairly generous with enclosure sizes for some of the larger animals, which makes me happy. I love animals, and I understand that zoos are an important part of conservation efforts for many endangered species, but I always feel some sadness seeing such beautiful creatures locked up.

Nevertheless, they do make good subjects, and they definitely exhibit things that we interpret a certain way. Sometimes they’re regal, sometimes cute, sometimes sad. Sometimes bored.

Here’s a small selection of photos from my visit.
