The pictures are optimized for slideshows. The slideshow button is at the upper right. Please use your loudspeakers. There is some music, progressive music from the seventies in the different galleries.

Gary,

Goldwinger


Thanks for your kind words. It seems to me that members of this species close down a bit in strong sunlight. I have some shadow pictures but they look rather dull

This one didn't seem to dodge the light either. Over here they are refered to as "shy" ("shy as a violet"), but that kind of personifying is just stupid, I think. As if animals and plants can be judged by human standards

For me human has become the h-word

Animal power!

Plant power!

Violet for President! Beaver for vice president
