Before Sunset

Just before sunset, they walk out in the open – the forest animals. This hot and dry May and beginning of June – I am glad to follow their example…

Driving to the forest I pass many fields, and all of them are being heavily irrigated… We all want new potatoes this summer of course! Soon watering will be restricted – in many parts of Sweden it already is.

Most summer flowers come and go fast. When I visited here a week ago – the flora was totally different.

Being a wild animal is never easy, not even in the summer. I do hope there will be rain soon – all brooks and puddles are dried out.

Two hours’ walk, then time to return. Birds are still singing, but I guess in a couple of weeks the forest will be more quiet as feeding the little ones now comes first.

On driving back, this gentleman was sitting in the field, just keeping an eye on me. I stopped the car to see his ears move around – they are quite lovely – his ears.

Behind me, about the first clouds seen in a month, are elegantly sailing over the fields.

And the farmers are still working – or their machines are – to give us food on the table.

  1. Amazing what can be going on in other parts of the world and we are totally unaware Leya. Lovely captures – especially love your opener. We are just entering our hurricane season and have had quite a bit of rain these last few weeks – hope your weather breaks soon!

    • Thank you Tina. Hurricanes sounds ominous to us who never experienced that kind of weather. We are still waiting for some rain to come our way, but the heat wave seems to have parked here.

  2. Lovely photos. Hope you get some rain soon. Love the hare. We had one in our garden again today. I so love to see them.

  3. We’ve had plenty rain this spring. In fact, it’s pouring as I type. Wish I could send you some. I love the rainbow you caught in the first shot. Farmers are some of the hardest workers I know and for not nearly as much financial reward as many who don’t work nearly as hard or whose work isn’t as vital. I’m thankful for them every day.
