Southern Germany

A Russian military parade, female pilots uniting, and a chicken crossing the road are among this week's eye-catching images.
The hapless fox apparently broke through the ice and drowned.
For the past six weeks, I have been living in Reutlingen in Southern Germany, travelling through verdant country sides and rolling hills swept with umber-roofed houses and ruins of stoic towers and castles. If you're planning a vacation through the dazzling south of Germany, make sure to add these locations to your list!
