Welcome again to the nature reserve on the Slovenian coast where you can spy on wildlife and find ready-made frames for your images.
In this heated, dry weather here in the south of Tuscany, as we are waiting for some rain to green back the landscape after it has gone apocalyptically yellow, I thought a memory from cooler times spent last December in my native Slovenia would do as good.
There is even ice.
In the first post from our visit the focus was on birds, since the elegantly wooden Škocjanski Zatok in Koper/Capodistria is predominantly a bird sanctuary, and today here is everything else, including some other beasties.
What I love the most are the viewing gaps: so unobtrusive, yet voyeuristic. The fact that the view includes the largest Slovenian port, Port of Koper, does not disturb the peace and quiet at all.
The visit is free, unless there are enough of you to constitute a large group. The stroll can last up to two hours if you take it easy and wait to see what appears when you quieten down. Sounds like life.
Today there are two galleries. Both enlarge upon clicking on any photo. All in all, a great experience.
I have gathered the views from the gaps in their own gallery below. The last photo might remind you of my writer’s blog Manja’s Thought Feeder since it’s my header photo over there.
