On two occasions Red Baron already reported about the Freiburg-Madison prairie project, here and here. Last year the Freiburg-Madison-Gesellschaft had a Stammtisch devoted to it.
Here are my yesterday's photos.
|In spite of the still persisting draught in Freiburg part of the prairie is still in blossom|
|All excited Susanne Eckert shows some American sunflower seeds to|
Günter Burger, Freiburg's chief of protocol, and
Frauke Feix, vice president of the Freiburg-Madison-Gesellschaft.
|Mundenhof's bison bull had noticed the massed visitors and was moving towards us, ...|
|... checking that there was no danger for his females, ...|
|... eventually turning his back on us, ...|
|... and slowly moving on in disgust.|
|What does constitute a prairie?|
It‘s the high grass, stupid.
|Following the extremely dry summer, the grass wasn't so high finally.|
Where is Susanne Eckert? Can you find her?
|On our way back. The bull had joined his flock.|
