Sketching in the Greenhouses at Rotterdam Zoo

In my another blog about Greenhouses in Rotterdam Zoo (you can have a look in this link) I wrote that the greenhouses are my favorite place. I still remember how wonderful it was, when I was at the Zoo in 2007 (for the first time). I see so many beautiful birds which I had never seen before!

Great Kiskadee (Pitangus sulphuratus)
 It is nice to sit somewhere en to watch the birds flying (sometimes really very close), taking a bath or eating And to listen to their songs and talks.

I love to sketch there and I got many ideas for my work and stories.
 It is for me also a nice place to feel again in harmony with life.

If I am drawing it happens sometimes that they came very close to have a look...
