Travel Tuesday: Pied Avocet

Pied avocet (Recurvirostra avosetta) / Säbelschnäbler

No, the spout of this bird isn’t broken 🙂 It’s really bent upwards. You can see them along the coast quite often, but only in areas without men. They are very shy in my experience. Go, where no men are, to see them. Sit down, and wait for them to come up to you. No quick movements.

Take care!

Monochrome Monday: It’s fall again

The fields are empty expect the corn and some potato fields. Most of the empty fields are already prepared for the next year.

Temperatures are already quite low: max 15°C during the day despite the sun already has its warming abilities. Days became shorter and the nights longer. Later this week fall officially starts (although fall starts on September 1st for the meteorologists).

Take care!

in the countryside

After a week of constant and often heavy rain, Saturday was a nice warm fall day. I’ve had some spare time in the early afternoon, so I fetched my camera and headed to the countryside. Much room on the parking ground proposed few other people around.

By chance, I met these deers, right next to the path about 50m away from me at an empty field. At first one doe with her fawn was lying in the sun approximately 20m from the edge of the forest. After a while both got up (the fawn first) and started walking slowly and relaxed back to the edge of the forest where another doe with another fawn was waiting.

I was carefully hidden behind some huge silage packs. So I was able to observe them for about 20 minutes. Although, three of them are looking in my direction in the above image, there was no fear to notice. They stayed calm, but constantly looking in every direction to make sure, they are still save and no predator is around.

A wonderful experience.

Take care!
