Summer Encaunter


After an "april-ish" spring summer came very fast. There was almost no occassion to wear my overpriced cagoule... Tsk! But I won't complain, I like warm weather. But for strolls it's often too hot for me, so I would prefer to take a refreshing bath in the lake. However there was still time to hunt some critters near the lake <3

Spring Snakes!


Spring was strange so far. First it was very warm, even dry (we had forest fires) and than winter came back. Warm and very cold days rotated but now spring is here - finally. I managed it to visit my beloved snakes and took some photos of them and other creatures. Have a look under the cut.

Picture of the Day


Today we saw a very young, about 25cm long pike. That was awesome, because normaly you don't see such fishes so clear in the water. Mating season is near, maybe that's why that pike was in the pond-like section of the lake.

Antilocapra americana


Hello and welcome to another entry about my collected oddities. This time I want to talk about my christmas present to myself of 2016. It's a skull of an unordinary animal. An animal, which only lives in North America. Did I arouse your curiosity? Well, then let's go under the cut!

Winter - so far so good

Haldi

Winter 2016/2017 started very strange. It was a long time too warm and there was no snow, not even in the mountains. There was also no rain, it was too dry! This unusually warm time was the reason that a lot of the migratory birds didn't came to our shores. I think they stayed at home or didn't fly so far as usual. Well, but there were still animals for my camera. See my loot under the cut!

New Year Bones


About a year ago my uncle was telling me about a skull he spotted in a hedge near his house. It was the skull of a hare, he said. If I'm interested in it, he will bring it to me the next time we will meet again, he said.Well, we met a few times but he always forgot the skull. Until now, he brought it to me. But it wasn't the skull of a hare in the box, oh no... What's in that box? See it under the cut!

Christmas Presents

I know I'm a bit late, but I found these two feathers on the 25. December. Both are very special and unique. The first one is a crow feather with white spots on it. I found many crow feathers so far, but non of them had white markings on it - so, WOW!


The second one is from a bird I rarely see: it's a feather of a kingfisher! I almost stomped on it, it was pure luck to find it on the ground. But I was so happy to find such a feather, a wish came true! <3


Only a smal part of the feather is blue.
Eh, I'm so happy about these findings that I needed to share them. <3
Have a nice 2017!
