Small things

Walking in the same forest every day does provide some small excitements:

A baby dear (probably not more than a few days old), frozen, alone – the mom hopefully lurking nearby and keeping an watchful eye on her youngster; a black woodpecker floating majestically through the forest; a hedgehog curling up immediately upon close inspection, or the mass emergence of stag beetles (Lucanus Cervus).

According to Wikipedia: “The natural reaction of the beetle to an approaching large object is to remain motionless making them a good photographic subject.” Very true.

And sometimes nothing is really “happening”, it is just raining gently and the soft sound of dripping brings back memories of cloudforests at dawn. And that is already something.
