Bor castle in the mist and ducks

I have visited this place during my latest holiday spent in Marianske Lazne SPA. Bor is a castle in the town of the same name in the Tachov district. And the day I visited it was extremely misty from the early morning until the late afternoon. I have started visit of the castle from the nearby park with a pond. When approaching to the castle inhabitants of this pond came out from the nearby bushes and started to shout at me.

Horses grazing on pasture

Watching animal in their natural environment bring me some kind of pleasure. Pastures are not too native environment for horses, however it is as natural as it can be. Watching horses grazing on pasture is very exciting, to see how animals choose what grass to eat and which on the other hand not.


Blackbirds are almost everywhere. They often come to my garden, make some mess, fly to and fro. Just recently there was one, sitting as usual on a wooden fence, watching into my windows and observing life around. Next day there was snowing heavily. None of these black creatures could be seen. However wen returning from a local shop I found plenty of blackbirds nest close to the pavement hiding in front of that snow.

Birds by the pond

Taking a shot of a bird in the flight is not so easy.  First you need some camera with somehow reliable tracing system or at least be fast and have long lens. Apart from this you also need a flying bird. Flying bird should, however, be flying pretty close and no too much fast. Trying to catch flying in the distance is possible but some details can be lost.

Lednice pond duck and swans

If I tried to explained someone that I was chasing birds this weekend, I don't know people would think of me. They would probably knock on the forehead and sent me somewhere or fuck me of completely.

Swan and ducks on the pond

Swan and ducks on the pond – one day in summer I have spent few minutes by the pond in the middle of block of flats. There was some swan and a pair of ducks, male and female. To my surprise male duck wanted to present himself and protect his partner. To some point it was fun but also inspiring.

Bird sitting on a fence

Do you sometimes have strange feeling as if someone is watching you?  It happens to me when I stay at home and am moving near the windows or balcony door. One day I finally found out why I have so strange feeling. I have discovered a bird likes to sit on my wooden fence, and is watching anything that moves around. I suspected him on spying on me, however, bird cannot think and he is probably looking for something to eat.

Again in the Zoo

I like watching animals, sometimes I go out to the wild nature but sometimes I prefer to go to Zoo to see animals I cannot find in the wild nature. Thus I have decided to visit Zoo again, this time went to see stork, ice bear, and white wolf. May be I visited and watched more animals but most lovely were those named. Especially I liked three small wild pigs sleeping next to each other and white wolf lying on the hill watching who disturbs him.

Birds in the housing estate

Everyone can see some birds outside on the daily bases. Sometimes I am curious what do the birds do whole day. Find out I took camera and went out to the nearby housing estate. There are many trees and small lands of grass. It did not take too much time to glance first bird and another and another. To my surprise all the birds if not flying are either jumping or walking or digging in the earth.

Zoo Brno – one of the first visits

Visiting Zoo in Brno was very interesting experience. I found too many objects to take a picture and places I have never seen before Apart from animals there were numerous stalls with food and with souvenirs than in any other Zoo I visited before. At some occasions it took me some effort to find animals I wanted to see.
