Exploring a new path to hike

A female Red-backed shrike was watching me  (Törnskata)
A met a fellow hiker. We were both carefully judging the other. 

On a small area at the lake I was able to get a shot of this dragonfly. 
In a field of crop I noticed something green. It was as tricky to shot as it is to see it. I pointed the camera at chance and hoped for the best. It is a Great green bush-cricket. I hope you see it

And lastly, the horses still don´t let me see their faces. 
Instead they quickly run away and share their behinds.

It was a good but tricky hike. I walked on dirt roads, path through forest, on deer paths in crop fields and through a dense clover field. Good for the strength´s of body and mind.

Visiting Vännervass

This week  I payed a visit to Vännervass. To get to the lake Näsnaren I have to walk on a boardwalk through the reed. A peacock butterfly was resting on the wood. At the lake I found a family of Mute swans. There was not much birds to watch out there apart from Mute swans. Ducks and cormorants was too far out on the lake.

On my way back to the car I saw this row of cows as I stepped out of the boardwalk. I was glad I saw them before I came out in the field. I like cows but they just LOVE to taste my backpack and camera. And  I don´t want them soaked. And this row of cows reminded me of my childhood. The cows always came home to be milked this way.

Saturdays Critters

 Click image to enlarge!
I was on my way home when I spotted this dark Fallow deer buck on a clover field.

Th grey wagtail has been absent for 3 weeks but now appeared again and seem to have young. This is probably a male. 

I was lucky to capture the Brimstone in mid air 

I apologize to those who don´t appreciate this animal. But I think this is interesting. What appear to be blue eyes is the Snok molting it´s skin. This is my favorite snake It is a curious one and only eat fish and rats. During the years I had many lovely encounters with this species.  The small fish has finally appeared at the stream so when done molting it will hunt it´s lunch. I hope to see it then.

This is an image I took from across the lake. It shows about half the distance. Tornstugan is the recreation area with a birding tower. I am standing on a platform across the lake. To get to the platform I have to walk a long way through reed on a boardwalk. Don´t go there too often as it feels a bit unsafe. But most of the swans, the cormorants and some migrating ducks are in this area of the lake.
