Fallow deer

Fallow deer mostly females, fawns and young bucks 
First time I have seen them this way this year. In the open like this, calm and relaxed. 
And, they did not notice me. 


Fallow deer doe and her fawn. The youngest one I have seen. The doe saw me but seemed to be unsure if I was a threat or not. 
This is in the corner of  a field behind the Mansion´s barns. The harvest is over so the deer is coming back. 


I wonder who lives here? Might be a fox but I have not seen any. 
This is the forest I walk through to get to the field above. And this is the easy part. ūüėÖ Lots of fallen trees with sticky branches. But, a great exercise. And much more fun then walking or jogging. I like to sneak up on them.

Moose and a new place

Moose cow and calf

A young Moose bull. Maybe the cows calf from last year. You see the small antlers, and they are bloody. 

Moose family. All three visible here. 

I noticed the moose from across a field. I was happy to see there was tree of them. Earlier I have only seen two. I assume the young bull is also the cows offspring. Or else he would not be with them. 
Coming home I realized the moose hunt is about to begin. I can only hope they survive. 


I found a new place this week, about an hours drive from home. It is a small Nature Reserve saving the environment of an old Esker from glacier times. WIKI
Lake J√§gern with mostly mallards swimming. 

A herd of sheep tending the landscape. 
Walking into the reserve I immediately got company. ūüėć

MM Autumn road trip

 Click image to enlarge!





This was one of those days when the weather had no idea of what it was supposed to be. 
I had been to the grocery store and did not want to go home. So I drove out of town to check some areas I had not been for a while. It is a nice road to travel. And I have one place I always stop and check. It is a marsh and in normal years you need rubber boots to go there. This summer it has been dry but this day it was wet, obviously. But I managed  with my boots.  :) 

Passing a hill I noticed the landscape with dark clouds and sunshine. Had to stop. There was noise above my head. A group of Graylag goose was travelling. Preparing for migration south. 

The mushroom, cauliflower fungus, is one om my favorites. I just wish it was not that hard to clean. 

Most of the trees will soon be bare.
