61 - Elistvere Animal Park

Elistvere Animal Park shows wild animals that live and used to live in Estonia in as natural conditions as possible. I have visited the place many times before (for example: 07.03.2009; 11.07.2009) and still I'm sure this particular trend will continue in the future. By the way, the last time I went there was on the 14th of August when I was home alone and had the perfect mood for taking photos.

The animal park which opened in 1997 is located in the territory of the former Elistvere manor park. Native wild animals - foxes, roe deer, brown bear, lynxes, elks, wild boars, European buffalos, reindeer, fallow deer, raccoon dog, common squirrel, pheasant and others - are settled in the conditions similar to those they experience in the nature. Those interested may also visit the small rodents' centre. In addition nature study trails introduce various plant species with the help of information signs.

I always enjoy being there and observing the lovely animals and birds. Of course I also love photographing them and therefore I'm showing you some of the pictures I took there recently (last weekend). After my relaxing walk in the animal park I ate yummy dinner in a luncheonette called "Lible juures" that is situated in Palamuse boroughtown.

I hope you enjoy the photos and be sure to tell me what you think.
Oh, by the way, I also have some recent outfits to show you and my two-week long vacation will start soon... only two more workdays and it's arrived!
ps. I made myself the FASHIOLISTA account and would love to find you, my dear readers, from the page! :)

Also, some after-the-rain nature photos from the 13th of August, taken in my yard:

  1. Me oleks peaaegu läinud sinna, kuna ööbisime oma reisi ajal seal suht lähedal aga ajapuuduse tõttu jäi ära. Kift koht, kunagi hiljem pean kindlasti saama sinna :)

  2. kuna Tallinna Loomaaed on minust liiga kaugel, siis lihtsalt tuleb seda nii lähedal asuvat loomaparki nautida :) soovitan soojalt igatahes!

  5. oooh, niinunnud pildid :)
    Minu arust on Elistveres isegi ägedam kui Tallinna Loomaaias...kuidagi nagu rahulikum ja rohkem looduse keskel, mis sest et seal nii eksootilisi loomi pole :)

  14. You're such a talented photographer. Nothing better than seeing animals in "natural" envoronment/habitat. Love the fox sunning him (her?) self and the b/w shot of the deer is stunning! Great post girl!

  17. Isver, ma pole Elistverest kuulnudki. Nii imelik (where have I been?!).

    Nii nunnud loomapildid. Ausalt, Maiken, Sul on annet.

    See j2nku on eriti naljaka n2oga - tydinud v6i lihtsalt unine. Naljakas pilt :-)

    Ja yks mu lemmikuid on see toidupilt :-D Meil UK-s siukseid friikaid ei ole ja viinereid ka eriti ei s88da. Ma vahel k2in yhes vene poes ja ostan sealt. N2mm n2mm :-P

    ja suur aitäh muidugi! :)

    kui aus olla, siis söön minagi üpris harva taolist toitu, aga seda parem oli!! :P kindlasti tuleb enne suve lõppu veel seal söömas käia.

    Mikko Tyllinen - thank you very much!

    Norah - mhm, peaaegu kõigil loomadel oli parajasti mingi muhe päev käsil vist :P

    Mary - thanks! :)

  22. as usual - photos are great! I have neven been in this park, but after reading a description I think, that when I'll be in the future in Estonia, I must visit this park :)

    PS. to take those photos I used canon eos 400d, without any additional lenses :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. photos from Mirabilandia were taken using eos 600d, 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 - unfortunatelly it's not my camera, it's my friend's. but we spend much time together and I can use her camera very often ; - )
