This picture has been taken during a visit to the Zoo of Planckendael 5km of Mechelen and 25km of Brussels.

I am a great fan of make pictures in a Zoo, animals are always honest for make a wonderful image.
Not alone animals in the Zoo but you can see the storks upward the chimneys of the building of the Zoo.
These Storks come out of Africa, every year get the Storks a micro transmitter, on these way can the Zoo the bird become followed, through the satellite.
In October depart the bird to France, Spain, than over the Mediterranean sea to North Africa.
The colors are original, alone cropped to get more square format

The Zoo Planckendael is one of the largest zoos in Belgium and is full of surprises. The zoo is not just ordinary animals that everyone knows, but also exotic animals. The "goudkopleeuwaapjes" is a species which has only Planckendael and would come from America. For children there are plenty of accommodations and walkways. So they can run around while you quietly enjoy nature. It is even possible to reserve a learning package. This can be seen on the website so that learning is something you during your visit to Planck Deal. Throughout the year there are shows are where you are sure to be. You can view the shows on their website their actions and tariffs. Schools will consider at their school they feel at home. A visit to Planckendael will surely never forget.

I hope that the visitors these picture appreciate.
