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.
Today, we have had an event market in town: a Bauernmarkt (~framers’ market).
Twice a year we have such an event market – in spring and in fall. Although it’s called farmers’ market and definitely has products offered by farmers and rangers, it is very different. Our weekly market is twice a week: Tuesday and Friday morning you can find the booths here on this place. You can usually find the same vendor. But this market is different.
It’s on Sunday from 10 to 18h. The venders are prepared to bring some entertainment i.e. for kids like tinkering, make candles explain honey making, showing bees and other farm animals like sheep, small pigs, hens or turkeys. You can also find some artists offering handmade soap, polished semi precious stones or dried flower decoration’s or in this case decorating stuff made from slates. And certainly, you can find many food stands: bratwurst (grilled sausages), waffles, fresh bread, smoked fish, fischbrötchen (fish rolls), coffee and cake. Often they also demonstrate old (nearly forgotten) handicrafts like wool making (spinning) or modelling from bee wax.
