Critters at Björkvik

True beauties. 

The mare seem to be bowing to the foal 😀

I am not sure what kind of horse these two are. They are rather small but not as a pony. . 

Swifts! I can still catch them with my old Canon. Despite it is way to heavy nowadays. I, kind of, use it to measure my condition. Can I catch them, I am still OK. They are soo fast! I did see two of them flying into nests.

Meadow brown - Slåttergräsfjäril

A visit to Björkvik´s old Church ruin. This is a place about one hours drive from my home. I go there in summer when I want to see swifts and nice horses. It is located at the shore of Lake Yngaren and a very beautiful place. They take good care of it and it is still used for outdoor meetings. Well, not this year though.
The horses are grazing in meadows behind me.

  7. It’s good you can get outside and walk in a place like this ... nature saves my sanity! Those are great shots of the swifts ...you are definitely still OK . I, on the other hand, am not . (If the measurement is how fast I am at focusing my camera. I have never been fast and I am gettin worse.).
