Nature are waking up

 Click image to enlarge!
Four of the Fallow deer bucks were out on the field. But they are sooo wary. First sight of me and they are gone. I have to be very cautious to not be detected. But the field have dried up so it is not that slippery anymore.

We call this one Forest lizard, this was ablut 12cm long head to tail

This is a Viper. It has venom but not that strong.

Some of the cold-blooded ones have woken up. In Sweden, all cold-blooded animals are considered to be endangered and may not be killed


Far out in the pond a pair of Gadwalls were swimming

I said hello and welcome the the first white wagtail ūüėÄ

And, these days, everybody needs a hug. This mute swan gives it to you.

I hope everyone is healthy and well. I can still go out in nature as long as we are not a lot of people going. But I always go alone so there is no problems. This week I started to shop food and such for friends not as healthy as I am.

Take care.

This image was taken late in the evening in Japan when we were to look for owls. This light was chosen to not disturb the vision for the owls and it seem to have created the dotted lines of the path for the snow. I could see it with my eyes but did not really expect it to be visible in the image. But it was. ūüėÄ

This was in a second hand store I visited. They were about to redecorate one of their walls. I love it and took a shot.

Only two legged ones

 Click image to enlarge!
A pair of Razorbills - Tordmule
I think the world needs some love these days. This is a photo from Scotland that I visited in  120626

The first Common Cranes has arrived. You can hear their call all over the landscape.

 The greylag goose has been here a week or two, the coots arrived this week. Already full of mating energy.

Gadwall - Snatterand
We had three Gadwall males overwintering. But now females has arrived. But this couple probably arrived together.

I hope these ponds keep the water for the summer so the birds will stay. Two years in a row they dried out, but it looks good so far this year.

I hope everyone stays safe in Corona times. I for one are happy to see birds arrive, will keep me busy in sad times.

Birds only

 Peekaboo!


The Mute swans are mostly on the far side of the lake so this day I was happy to see them close.


 A long tailed tit turned up at the forest feeder.

Eurasian siskin, so fun to watch in wintertime  when they come in huge flocks.
