The world is alive again!

The sun makes its appearance in a slightly more convincing manner, a bunch of plants realize now is the time to start to bloom instead of two months ago, and hibernation is over for all participating animals (homo sapiens included.) 


Not all animals hibernate, but still a lot of them are tucked away in winter, away from the (mild) cold and (lack of) snow. Now that the sun is getting back in action, so is the world’s fauna. Inspired by the sunny days I wanted to go out and photograph some of these lovely animals popping up everywhere. But I also wanted to just chill and read a book on the balcony. So I compromised and did the latter. In my defense, I already have a bunch of pictures of animals, so let me just show you some of those instead!
