 The smallest lizard I have ever seen. Think it´s called forest lizard. Was really hard to catch on camera.


Common darter.
Dragonflies are back! This one usually comes in large numbers.


Fallow deers are back in the field, but soo hard to spot. This field is a mess.  :(

I saw this biking woman just entering the slope down to the tunnel. :) I caught her right at the edge.
Normally I don´t do street photography, But sometimes it is fun.

Wildlife in my files

 I think this is a muskrat - Bisamråtta. This was the only time I know I have seen it. It is not native to Sweden.   Saw it in Kvismaren, a Nature reserve.

Red-necked grebe - Gråhakedopping
A rare bird to see in Sweden. And when I see it it is way to far out on the lake.

Today I have been diving in my files. It is quite fun actually. This is old shots but I have probably not posted them. The curlew and the grebe is shot with a 500 mm lens so not a too good quality compared with todays shots.

Oystercatcher in Scotland   © NF Photo 120705


I realized I have not posted at all in July. Weather have been constantly changing between hot and cold. And in older days I find I can´t stand HOT anymore so I spent much indoors. Does not matter really as wildlife nowadays is scarce around here. But there are still a few.

I´m posting images from my Scotland trip on Instagram. Found this oyster catcher this morning and think it looks cool so I ad it to the post. I hope your summer is great.

A lucky day

 Click image to enlarge!
Fallow deer - Dovhjort
I was shooting a clover field when I turned around and spotted these, quite far away. I had to be really careful to get closer. I was happy because it was the first time this year I saw any in the beautiful summer hide.



Roe deer with two newborn - Rådjur m kid
 Later on I spotted a roe deer on a field. First time I have seen that small ones.

 The cots are now 2-3 weeks old and start to become juveniles. "teen ages" the redhead is disappearing. They now started to feed themselves a bit.

I was really lucky this day when it comes to wildlife. Deers I rarely see nowadays and roe deer newborn. Never happened before  :)

Feeding frenzy!
Well, these are gulls from my trip to Morocco some years ago. We were on an ocean tour so, of course, they were fed.

I was happy to see the Gadwall, first time I saw any this close. And never before in my closest lake. And he was alone, no female. Strange! They are usually pairs.

The fieldfare are here but not as many as usual. :(
