These South American animals are now in Sweden. They have them for breeding and to produce fine wool. They are quite cute. This farm is located about 45 min drive from where I live. And, of course, they have to be fenced in. Lots of different fences. But the young ones seemed to wish to come out to me. They were very curious.  :)

NF Trees n Bushes 56 In the pasture in spring


NF Trees n Bushes 56

Welcome to NF Tree n Bushes meme.

 I have always liked trees and have lots of them in my files that I never got around to post. I assume that many of you have it too. So, for this meme is not about running around taking shots today. You can as well dig in your files for those gems never posted. Trees and bushes comes in many shapes and forms and they look different as the year go by. Many of them has flowers and are showing autumn colors. They change always.

They usually have sheep in this pasture but they were not let out yet. The top image is a part of an Oak, the other is probably hazel. Flowers are wood anemones.

Entrece to Hammars Säteri
Beautiful setting with the row of yellow flowers in the lawn behind the fence.

The cattle let out for the season in front of the Hammars Säteri

This one looks unusually fat to be a cow.

Close to the farm they have the NatureReserve Kvismaren. Probably on the farms land.
This is an overview of one part of the reserve. Not many birds on the water but it should have been a lot. :(

 Öby Kulle, at Kvismaren, below the viewpoint above are famous for it´s snakes. We have three kinds of them. Lots of people comes here with the children too in order to see the snakes that is warming up in the sun. This one is a viper, we call it Huggorm and it has poison. Not deadly for a human unless you are allergic. The eyes on this one is blue for the moment.  The color changes when the snake are about to slough and the skin has loosened.

As I said above, not many birds but I did see these Greenfinches at the feeder beside the parkinglot.

The Fieldfare is the only bird that I can say we have a lot of where I live. Still they are hard to get close to. The Loon on the other hand is rarely seen. It is only passing through on it´s way up north. And this was the first time in several years I saw them.
