Oh wow!
Fantastic weather for today's , sunniest of the year, so far.

There was a frost this morning and it was still cool in the shade, but in the sunshine it felt like summer.

On the hill I found a Red Deer antler. By the time I got back to the car I had found four more.

Sorry, no doggie photos today. 🐢

Between now and May is the peak period for the stags to naturally shed their antlers.

Sweden must be nice, too.

@fitheach Sometimes, yes. πŸ˜‰ It's a vast country though. Many different landscapes and biotopes.


That is amazing. I wish I could go for a walk and see nature like that all around me.

Yeah, it was great.
On my way home, in the car, I drove past about 10 antler owners. They were still wearing their antlers.

Yeah, that is one of the potential markets. The other is for people who use the antlers for crafts: knife handles, buttons, jewellery, that kind of thing.
