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. 🐢

Here is my haul of Red Deer antlers from today's .

Five antlers, and I wasn't even looking hard. I was concentrating on enjoying the walk with .

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

@fitheach lovely, thanks for sharing those! Brightened my urban morning.

Even my dog seemed to have an extra skip in his step today.

Wait till I post photos of the days when the rain is coming down in sheets. πŸ˜‰

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.

@fitheach that's like $150 in dog chews. Nice score.

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.
