Today, I brought my camera along once again. Right at the beginning I saw my first slow worm of the day, the second one on my way home.
The tadpole pond was nearly empty. When approaching it, hundreds of not even fingernail sized frogs or toads were jumping towards me. I knew, that there are larger fish in the pond, but I’ve only heard them so far, never seen them. Until today. At least five large individuals about 30-40 centimeters in length. One might have been even half a meter long.
Banning dragonflies on film is nearly impossible. 11 is the “best” result, not only can you see its shadow, but also its head at the very top. When going home I saw six deer in total at the woodland margins. Spending two hours at the pond was absolutely worth it.
