My neighbors

Someone asked me yesterday if I had pictures of “kronhjort” (also known as red deer, or for Americans, something similar to elk).  Of course I do!  They’re my neighbors!  (OK, I don’t photograph my human neighbors, but they don’t come by so often, and they might think it was weird.  If my four-legged neighbors are uncomfortable being photographed, they haven’t mentioned it.)

Even if you don’t see the deer themselves, there’s always plenty of evidence that they’re around.  This is a picture of deer hair caught on a barbed-wire fence.  It’s more likely to be hair from roe-deer, since they tend to go under the fences, than from red-deer who go over, but I like this picture so much that I thought I’d share it here anyhow.



  1. Very beautiful, especially the first image with the blooming elder and the close-up of a calfs head. I like the barbed wire image too, even if I don’t like barbed wire. Thanks Lani.
