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.
