Thank you, Lussi :wave:
This weekend I had a little talk with another cyclist. He told me, that he is 70 years old and goes 30km with his bicycle every day. I told him that there was a wte a few minutes ago. And the 70y old cyclist said that he do not knows anything about the existence of eagles in the area!!

Ergee wanted to see sunsets. I have chosen 5 from my PC, they are not all from this year or from spring/summer!

September 2009:

November 2010:

Image

September 2011:

Image

February 2012:

Image

June 2012:

The sunset from February this year - the colours were even more intensive, I don't think it could have been caught with a camera, and I have not "photoshopped" the photo!

Thanks, yours are also beautiful. That's why I also love to watch the Käsmu cam, the sky there is sometimes really spectacular! And always changing!

I remember many many years ago when I was a child my mother told me: Schau, die Engel backen Brot. Morgen gibt es schönes Wetter. :D

You remember this wasps-nest
Image
I know one in wood on the backside of a view point and yesterday I saw this in the ground
Image
So I googeled a little to know if that are different kinds. And the first hits: How to destroy or remove a wasps-nest. Ok I am 50 years old but never had a wasp sting and now I am close to a nest for hours and they do not notice me. Peaceful

Yesterday I stopped at a field where I sometimes see also cranes. It was harvested like nearly all. My first thought was: Hmm, a cat here? But it was a fox. Noticed me and ran away
