Unusual to see the horses so close to the road. A great photo opportunity. 

Skogsvitvinge - Wood white


Green hairstreak - Grönsnabbvinge
This is, apart from the brimstone, one of the first ones that appears in spring. This one seem a little worn so I think it has been sleeping through the winter. Or if they spend the winter as a pupa?
Hm, not sure how that works. Can´t find any  info on that. 
They are mostly seen in blueberry bushes and are very small.

Deer time

 Click image to enlarge!

This week I was lucky when it came to deers. :) 
Fallow deer!
Top to the left, females and young males
Top right: They shed their horns and change into summer fur. Not good looking at the moment. 
Bottom: And the winner is: none, it was a draw.

Pregnant Roe deer female. She looks too skinny.

Be aware of Reptiles, Spider and Swanart

 Click image to enlarge!
A littl spiders net. Yes, there is one on the net if you look for it. 
Did you find it??


Swedish reptiles
We have four of them but where I live we only see these three.
 
The top one is not really a snake, it is a legless lizzard. It is named for it´s copper color. Copper snake. This one really scared me once. I did not see it under the leaves and suddenly "hell broke loose". Turned out I stepped on it´s tail. The snake took off but the tail was still messing around. You can see on this image too, this one has lost the tip of it´s tail. 

Bottom to the left is "Huggorm" it is toxic but not that bad. This one also have a black version. 

Last imge to the right, is four cuddling snakes called Snok. You can see four heads in the image. They have just come out of the winter hibernation. Warming up in the sun. 





Swan art
I had some fun creating art at the library and printing it. More about that on my Art Blog

Coots and a starling

Excited Coots


A lone starling

There are a few coots in the dams and they are very active. So fun to watch and try to capture. 

Starlings! There are supposed to be LOTS of the. On internet birdgroups I can see there are miljons in south of Sweden and rather many north of my area. I have seen only five so far. This is one of them. Last year they did not stay in my area because there was no food for them. Seem to be the same this year. ;(
