Whooper swans as and juv Photographed in Hornborgasjön 7 years ago.
Hornborgasjön is famous for the "Cranedance" during migration in spring. Lots of cranes and swans at that time of year.

Walked by the old anthill on my forestwalk a couple of days ago.  This one is a mark that tells you it is a healthy forest. I´m just a bit confused whay the pigs seem to leave it alone. They destroyed many of my mushroom places. The number of ants on the ground stops me from trying to get closeups.

This little snake, we call snok, tried to get up the side, but of course, it can´t climb a concrete side like this so, it ended in the water below. Flushed away. It was looking for fish.
