In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

The kids are spending the week with my mom, so I'm alone during the day until Hubby comes home from work. Since the weather was great today with 18 C, I desided I'd take a walk in the forest to our lean-to. So I grabbed my camera and a water bottle and headed out. I haden't come far before I heard some noises, I just thought I had scared a bird up. But no, just ahead was four mooses! I only managed to take a few (not so good) pictures before they saw me and ran away. So I sure received more than I seeked today :) Just wish the kids had been with me, but then again, I guess they would have made so much noice that the mooses would have ran off before we would even now they were there...
I must say I wasn't sure if I should walk all the way up to the lean-to, knowing there was four mooses running around in the forest. But I desided to walk on, and it was good to rest and have a sip of water when I came up. I couldn't sit for long though as I got surronded by horse flies :(
If it hadn't been for all the flies I might have laid down in one of these soft spots. Big areas of the forest are filled with the flowers of skrubbær / Bunchberry. Looking forward to Fall when all this will become red.
This is my favourite forest flower!
I almost steped on this tiny frog when I headed home, but I managed to grab him before he jumped his way into the gras.
