Critters yesterday

 Click image to enlarge!
Yesterday I had three appointments that was cancelled! Three! 
So, I took tha car and went "business as usual". Checking the Fallow deers. To my surprise I saw a LOT of them More then I have seen the past six months. 

Top image, you recognize them by now. The Men´c club.
Middle image, on another field, one male and the rest females and young ones. 
Bottom image, on the field behind the barn, lots of females and, I think, two males. I think I was able to capture all of them. It is more then a year since I saw a group like that. 

And all of this in the afternoon. 

The fox. 
At the same place where I mostly spot the Men´s club I saw the fox. Probably the one i had on one image sleeping a week ago. Seeing the photo I think this fox is not healthy. It looks sick to me.

That will be enough for today. What looks like a lake in the top image is just melting snow and rain. Makes it slippery and muddy to walk in. I don´t envy the animals.

Winter wildlife

Great tit. Suddenly the sun came out while the tit was posing. :) 


Mallards!    
How can I leave the place when they are blocking my path and even lie below the car??
It is a challenge!


White throated Dipper. 
This is two different places so it should be two different birds as well. 


The fallow deer did not like the snowstorm so they went into the woods to get some shelter. 
Even if it was close to the barn. 

The snowy weather comes and goes. One day a beautiful, cold day, the next a dull, wet one. 
Kind of tricky to walk in nature as I am used to. One step you walk on ice, the next you sink in mud. I don´t envy the deers, and I am always amazed I don´t see any wounds on them. 

I am currently setting up an exhibition of my art at the Library. 
If you like to see the progress you are welcome to visit my ARTBLOG

One White throated dipper finally back

I think this is an Otter. If I am right it is only the second one I have seen in Sweden. This was taken with the longest lens I can use. I would not have seen it if it was not swimming and disturb the pattern of the waves. 


And the hungry crowd! Mallards.
 
As soon as a car stops in the parking area they all comes walking and flying. Surrounding the car. To get out of the car I have to move the birds with my boots. Gently walk between them. 
This day I was happy to see the dipper coming back. I hope it will stay now. And maybe there will be one at the other place they usually visit. Which is a better place for taken shots of it. Anyway. I am happy it is here. 

Leaving the plase is a challenge also. The mallards are still surrounding the car. Even sitting below it. You have to start driving VERY slowly so they realise they have to move! I´m always afraid some will be stuck by the wheels.
