Anyone who has a story to tell, to accompany a photograph they have taken, can post it here.
I often wonder "how on earth did the photographer manage to get that picture - was he up a tree all day? Hiding in snow?"

Well, here, we can find out!

I had a luck to observe and take some photos from Migration of Branta Leucopsis – (valgepõsk lagle in Estonian)
03.November, Nort-East Estonia (near Rakvere)

Ornithologist Aivar Leito (senior researcher Estonian University of Life Sciences) says that he does’nt remember seeing that kind of mass-migration Branta Leucopsis here in Estonia.

Story behind pictures: when i drived to Rakvere, fields were filled with those birds. On my way back to Tallinn there was suddenly a magic moment when thousands of birds ‚departured’:). They made a strange sound – not a voice, just whir of wings, and flied quite low - it was a feeling that air actually ‚moved’. After circleing about 20 minutes they landed again.
Pictoresque sunset played a part too:)

Thanks for the warning, okaskera. That is nature at work. Everything feeds on everything else.
I, for one, want to read more of your stories, please.

(This afternoon, I was thinking - I wonder if okaskera will tell another photo-story, or shall I write to him?)

About the first picture: It happend many years ago. I was living other side of Estonia, on island Saaremaa.
It happend one of very cold winter near abadoned cottage. Fox was died probably by car. That cat from abadoned cottage found that fox and he was eating it all week until all fox was finished. Cat was rather wild - fearful. It wasnt easy to get that picture, he always was running away and growling on me further if i was trying to get close enough with my photocamera

Now about the second picture: it all happend close to same den from my first story, on the first year there. It was ver successful year for me and one of my friend. We got good friends with cubs, we were there almost every morning and evening and saw miraculous things from theyr life. One morning we went there, we saw cubs playing near den on cole - rape field.
We parked our car a lot further and crawled back there and saw cubs eating something.
ill add there couple of links to my website with better pictures of that day.

Thank you, thank you. I like to read of your activites with the camera.
Please can you or someone help me to understand one phrase?
One morning we went there, we saw cubs playing near den on cole - rape pole.
What is cole-rape pole? We have crops of rape here. It is for cattle feed and the seed produces rapeseed oil.
So, cole - rape pole? :book: :help:

So it was an unplanted field? No, you said arable? So I have to look it up, to make sure I have it right!
Dictionary - arable.
▸ adjective: (of farmland) capable of being farmed productively


You don't need a translator. I like posts that are individual - it leads to better communication!

Look on pictures Jo, you will see tiny rape plants already grownig there its rapsipõld in estonian
Põld is quiet universal word here its like agricultural land , what ever grows there. It may be planted or not planted yet or unplanted? already, its still põld.

I never learned english in school and logics in estonian and english are too different, so its very difficult to translate with dictionary.

I always admire people who take pictures or film about wildlife. When I watch some documentary film about animals I find myself thinking - there are people behind, how did they do that?
Okastera, your stories are very interesting. You said "We got good friends with cubs", how?

I think you are describing a very beautiful, peaceful place, Okaskera. If there is no English word for this kind of place maybe there should be. :mrgreen:

Oh I just though... maybe it is a fallow field? :unsure: :unsure:


FALLOW

SYLLABICATION: fal·low

ADJECTIVE: 1. Plowed but left unseeded during a growing season: fallow farmland. 2. Characterized by inactivity: a fallow gold market.
NOUN: 1. Land left unseeded during a growing season. 2. The act of plowing land and leaving it unseeded. 3. The condition or period of being unseeded.
TRANSITIVE VERB: Inflected forms: fal·lowed, fal·low·ing, fal·lows
1. To plow (land) without seeding it afterward. 2. To plow and till (land), especially to eradicate or reduce weeds.
ETYMOLOGY: Middle English falow, from Old English fealh, fallow land.
