My blue eyed friend!
I have followed this cat since she was a kitten. I love her blue eyes and her colors. She is very sweet and I have never seen her more then a few meters from her home. So, she is not a hunter. But she is soo hard to get good shots of. As soon as she gets close, she don´t leave you until you walk away too far from her home. Then she goes back!


These cows was actually eating of the bark on the timber. 
From the look of the logs these really needed to come down. But I don´t think this is due to the Bark beetle problem. They are just old!

Two and fourlegged critters

 Click image to enlarge!
Top image: A fallow deer buck I met the other day. He was alone and unknown to me. I was able to take only these shots before he noticed me and took off. Not to be seen again. It is soon the time for rut so he might roam the forests for females. After the harvest and cutting down forest the deers are invisible. Hiding somewhere I don´t know. I inserted the image of the antler to show how sharp they are. Like a huge saw! This time I was glad they are Escape animals, animals that flee from their enemies, such as deer.

Bottom row the images I got of moose lately. I posted them before. The family was seen from my car. I was lucky to get that shot before they disappeared into the forest. The lone one was seen a few days later. 



Top row: a dancing, juvenile magpie. This one has a blue mark behing his eye. That is a mark for African magpies. So, are the african ones moving north?? Who knows?
The next one is a Grey wagtail, female. At this place there has been a couple, but I have not seen any young so they probably did not succeed breeding 😞
Bottom: I like to see swimming birds in this light. They form the beautiful V-shaped waves. Female Mallard!

Alone and gathering

 Click image to enlarge!
I found this little guy in the forest waiting för better times. Alone!
I´m not sure what species it is? 🐻🐴


At the other side of town the greylag geese are gathering for the fall migration. 

I have not seen any other critters lately. The fields have been harvested and lots of the bug infected forest has been cut down. The deers don´t like empty fields and can´t move in the branches and stumps in what was once a forest, so they are gone. When the geese are gone nature will be compleately emty! 

I can only hope at least the Dipper will return. But that will not happen yet. 
Hopefully a few deers will come back!

Barns

This is the old-fashioned barns of the mansion Claestorp. 

I am happy they saved the remains of this tree in the beginning of the avenue leading to the mansion. It really looks like a beautiful sculpture.

Birds and deer

 Click image to enlarge!
Top row: Red-backed Shrike feeding young
Bottom: dove and Western jackdaw

The fallow deer ladies are finally seen again with their new young. And they are already two months old and half grown. I faild to see newborn again.  It seems to me the females spend the summer in high grass or the forest, alone with their new born. That makes them impossible to see.
