Critters on Öland
© NF Photo 180522

This is from my trip to Öland two weeks ago. This is a NP "Ölands Södra Udde" and from Eckelsudde also a birding Nature reserve. The sea is the Baltic sea. The cattle are keeping the land open and the hare does as it pleces. First time I have seen one with the ocean as background.

I am particulary proud of the last image even if it is not a good one. The Orange-tip, Aurora as we call it,  butterfly is a tricky one. Every year I see the male but only once before have I seen the female. And been certain of it. So, this time I got both in one shot. Have to be happy about it!   :)

Linking up with the following memes. My thanks to the hosts:

  1. Hello, it is neat seeing the cattle so close to the sea. Looks like a great place to see the birds, pretty views. I love the bunny and the butterflies. The last photo is beautiful. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend! PS, thanks for the comment.

  2. Really neat cows and boy I love that "hare by the sea" shot! Nice post of a wonderful spot!

  3. I did a double-take at the first shot - hard to imagine a spot with ducks in the foreground and cattle in the back, with water in between. Fascinating! And congratulations on the last shot!
