Meeting a Cheetah

… and ocelots and lynxes. Private Mini Zoo in Radostice u Brna in Czech Republic offers a chance to meet with these beautiful cats. The best part of the day was a going for a walk with the fastest animal in a world and then seeing it run at its top speed. All of this was accopanied by the owner’s very nice and informative commentary on the cats.

Exotic Butterflies in Prague Botanical Garden

“The Lightness of butterfly’s wings”, that’s the name of current exhibition in greenhouse Fata Morgana in Prague Botanical Garden. For about 5 weeks, the greenhouse is full of various species of exotic butterflies. I spent about two hours in the greenhouse and took lots of photos but due to not so good light conditions not many photos are as good as I would like. There were more species than is shown in this post but not all of them were willing to sit down where we could see them.

BTW, in my next article I will also post photos of flower from this greenhouse 🙂

I also tried to look up what are the species of butterflies on my photos, so you can find more information about them.
