Daugavpils Zoo and University: part 1

Recently I have spent several days in the city called Daugavpils the East of Latvia. The city with interesting history and its own unique lifestyle. 

Though my main goal was to take pictures in Daugavpils zoo and even more exciting place: Daugavpils University research center "Ilgas" - an old manor in the middle of forest reservation Silene. 

So this post is covering misty morning shooting in an ancient and beautiful forest several hundred meters away from border on European Union.
