Bavarian Forest May 2016 (Hayo's Images)
« on: 11/06/2016, 17:50:20 »
The Bavarian forest is always a great place to be, so too this May (even with the weather not as good as it usually is). I had hoped to see some young Wild Cat kittens (mother was definitely pregnant when we saw her in February) and perhaps some young Owls too. What I didn't anticipate was to see the bears with cubs again, that was a pleasant surprise! Pity they didn't show themselves at photogenic locations. The result is that I decided to go to the Bavarian Forest for the third time this year; we will be there from 17 till 25 June. Hopefully this time the bear cubs are playing nice :)

Below are some of the images I took during our May stay.
