A statue of the legendary hero Ogier the Dane, in Kronborg castle in Helsingør, Denmark.  He’s asleep, but will apparently awaken when Denmark is in danger. I wouldn’t want to wake him. He looks pretty untimidating.

A photo of what is probably my favourite animal – the lumpfish (also known as a lumpsucker).  They have a sucker on their underside that they can use to cling to objects… this one is sticking to the glass in a public aquarium in Helsingør, Denmark.

Here’s a view of the whole fish. This one is actually a baby, probably about 5-6 months old.
