Hortobágy National Park, Hungary (Hortobágyi-Nationalpark, Ungarn) (Hortobágyi Nemzeti Park, Magyarország) 10.2017.
We visited the Hortobágy National Park in late autumn and found a diverse invertebrate life in puddles. I took photos of these using an improvised aquarium. The local Hortobágy Wild Animal Park also offered an opportunity to see some members of the once-abundant megafauna of the Great Hungarian Plain. Along with other mammals, Przewalski's horses and Heck-cattle are kept here under semi-wild conditions. The Heck-cattle are part of an ongoing program to "breed back" domestic cattle to resemble their extinct ancestral form, the auroch. Location: Hortobágy. Date: 22.10.2017.

In July 2017 we visited Panama City. South of the skyscrapers there are still relatively large but vulnerable mangrove habitats, called Los humedales de la bahía de Panamá (ecoregion of the South American Pacific mangroves). We took some photos of local species in Costa del Este and Palo Grande. Location: Panama City. Date: 24.07.2017.
