These are such are greats captures and beautiful. Awesome close up. But, how do you managed to take the snake photo so close? Wow!!! Love them all.

Thanks for your always lovely comments ME. The snake was quite stiff as it wasn't all that warm even if it was sunny. So he wasn't really too alert and this one isn't poisonous either unlike the adder that also sometimes comes into our yard.

Ha! you know I have to scroll fast on that snake part hahahah...beautiful photos as always and they look so good in big sizes.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

WOW! I want to go to the cottage too! You found tons of great photo opportunities! I Love them all...except the snake. ;-)

Ebie said...

The second photo of the buds, look like a sugar frosted cup cakes!, But if you say alien things....I will run. The eyes of the snake is looking straight at me...hahaha!

Great shots. I really like the close-up of the snake and the 3rd shot which to me, looks like an alien on its back. :-)

Lanny said...

What a treat to come back from my little keyboard vacation to you gorgeous photos. What spendid looking horses you have for neighbors. Do you know what breed they are?

Linnea W said...

What a great place to go to to relax and take photos. Great series of shots you have posted here. Yikes, the snake is kind of creepy. Now I hope I don't dream about it...you have such a keen eye for capturing nature unfolding...

Bryan said...

So many excellent photos...perhaps most striking to me is the photo above the happy dogs. The red walls and the white windows just stand out so well from the surroundings.

Also...what is that on top of the eggs and next to the cucumber in the delicacies photo?

Tarolino said...

Lanny, I don't know the breed of the two dark ones. The light horse i think is our very own finnish horse.

Bryan: It is salmon mayonaise.

Thanks everyone for your comments.
I find snakes among the most beautiful creatures in the world.

En sa vacker kruka. Jag hoppas bara att ingen orm gommer sig i den.

Audun said...

What a great set of pictures. The countryside pictures were very delicate.

Tarolino: Those photos on the post are beautiful. Your Sky Watch photo is up and it is a beautiful scene.

Først; gratulerer med åpningsbildet på SkyWatch! Godt jobbet - og vel fortjent! Har ikke forsøkt å sende inn noe der - kanskje jeg skal prøve.

Her var det så mye flott at jeg har problemer med å holde orden på alt! For noen flotte makro du har tatt!! Du begynner å gå meg i næringen! :) Vanndråpene, de små vekstene - men den slangen tok helt pusten fra meg!

Fy og søren den er magisk!Den burde du ramme inn og henge på veggen!

VALKYRIEN said...

Tillegg: Det bilde av vekstene på konglen er bare så vakkert! Og så godt sett!

Skal ha øyne hele veien rundt for å se et motiv som det der!

Mojo said...

These are all magnificent, but the two that really jumped out at me were the third one and the one with the drop in the middle of the "crown" of leaves. Amazing!

Tarolino said...

Valkyrien, jag råkade bara gräva upp svampkotten ur vår sandhög när jag grävde grunden för en ny stengång i vår trädgård som behövde sand på bottnet. Tittade på den, tvättade den och la den på bordet för ett foto mot kvällssolen. Så gick det till :). Visst ska du skicka in en av dina fina himmelsbilder. Absolut.

What lovely photographs of gorgeous places. I particularly like the reflective one with the tall vase and the doggie photos made me smile.
Hugs and blessings,

Onpas veikeitä kuvia!Kekseliäitä ja kauniita.

Ann said...

Wow!!! You have so many beautiful photos. I first caught the attention of the fern. I didn't think ferns grew in Finland as it is so cold. We have lots of ferns in New Zealand.

I like that lizard. It seems to be frozen.

Upeita kuvia sinulla täällä!
Tuo lähikuva rantakäärmeestä, napitusten luikeron kanssa, on ihan huippu!
