Finally the ice is almost gone. The birds starts to arrive, but so far, in small numbers. The deer finally comes out in the open. They have been very shy this winter.

Took a round trip today to check the ice condition on some wetlands and small waters.  Most of the ice is gone. But the overall water level is too low.

I tested one of the setting for B&W photos on my HUAWEIP20Pro smartphone. I´m rather pleased with it.

It is very popular to take shots with "silky waters" nowadays. Personally I like the fierce look better but this if fun for a change. I think water shall look like water not milk. :)

I met both the bees and the dipper two days ago. Not sure the bees was aware of what month it still is. There are no flowers for them to feed upon.
The Dipper was very kind to me this day. Best shots I got for two years.

As I mentioned before it is very scarse with birds nowadays. But last time I visited the forest feeder I saw nuthatch and treecreeper. Loved it

On my balcony I have some weed as decoration, I think they are quite beautiful. I think it is Rumex longifolius or Dock, in Swedish "skräppa". It turned out the bullfinch and the redpoll likes them. As I live on third floor I am not allowed to have feeders. But this is decoration, not feeding. Right?
