A lucky day

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 wanted to do something different with the deers. Took them to Silver efex in NIK collection and came up with this black and white one.

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. :(

A visit to Kvismaren Nature Reserve

A few Greylag geese

 This place was always crowded with ducks. Now it is almost empty!

A group of cranes over head

 Snok! This snake has no venom. And it is very curious. It is my "spirit animal"

I and a friend visited Kvismaren a week ago. It was not fun! This place was crowded with birds when I first came here. But last year it was scarce and this time even less. There was more birders then birds :(  Most years at this, migration, time used to be thousands of geese, cranes and swans. Not to mention ducks. It is a sad thing to see what happens to nature and wildlife.

One part of this place, Öby kulle, is known for its snakes. Many people come here in spring to see them wake up and rest in the sun to get warmed up. There used to be two species but I only saw one of them. My favourite the Snok. This one is a swimmer and feeds mostly on fish.

On our way home we spotted a group of Fallow deer bucks. I was able to take a few shots through the car window.

This week we already had several forest fires in the south part of Sweden. That is not normal.  I am selfish and hope they will stay out of my neighborhood.

Critters from here and there

 The bison calf is from Teton/Yellowstone. The herd was crossing the fence but the calf did not find an opening. Finally it crawled below the fence to it´s mother.

This is an image I took on my trip to Teton Range and Yellowstone 2 years ago. The little calf eventually managed to go under the fence to it´s waiting mother.

A few birds at a feeder

The nuthatch flew away with a seed just as I pressed the button. :)

The Great spotted woodpecker is waiting for better times.

A Hawfinch is sitting pretty in the budding tree.  Some day I will try to paint it ;)

This is a place about 25 km from my home. There are a feeder and a tower at a nearby lake. There was not much birds at the lake yet. To early in the season.
