Animals

Hello!,  at the Kemphaan estate in Almere.

Those sheep were almost invisible in unknown plants for me..

Another Hello!

I like his cute curl tail.

 No hello, the goat was a bit pissed off.

Keith

No mural but a painting by American artist Keith Haring (1958-1990) in the Municipal Museum in Amsterdam. His pop art and graffiti-like work grew out of the New York City street culture of the 1980's. In spring 1986 he had his first solo museum exhibition in the Municipal Museum in Amsterdam, where he also painted a mural on the museum's then storage facility.  
In 1988 he was diagnosed with AIDS which led to his dead two years later.

Monkeys

I was at the "Foundation AAP" in Almere where primates and other excotic mammels get a better future when they are rescued from bad conditions.

The monkeys were all enjoying the beautiful weather we have at the moment. I like to watch them, they always have some human traits. My attention was attracted to the two at the left above.

One was very relaxed  stretched out on his back and the other was picking his fleas.

It was so sweet to watch how dedicated he was treating him.

Music

Ready to make some classic music in the street. The building in the background belongs to the University of Amsterdam.

The weather is still very enjoyable.

Animal Day

Today is "World Animal Day". My Sofietje enjoys the late afternoon sunshine on the windowsill.
A kind of tanning bed for her. The dots on the (dirty) window are made by her when she presses her snout against the glass while looking at the birds in the garden.
