Which means photos! ^_^
I get to Båntjern and rescue this little moth-like creature that had trouble getting out of the water.
And there are tadpoles here. Isn't it cute? Sorry, no ultra-closeup, water was spilling from my hand and I couldn't hold it for long.
In the afternoon shade, mosquitoes were abundant. I contemplated letting it have a few drops of my blood in exchange for some awesome photos, but my camera had a low battery warning, I didn't want to risk getting nothing in return. Batteries held the entire trip.
Båntjern: Always beautiful.
View from above.
And again because it's pretty.
Strange fungus on a dead pine tree. And my thumb for size comparison.
It was already growing dark at this time, and my camera would insist on using flash, so I figured I might as well head home.
And the great irony is that the vile one left the house just before I did, and came back shortly after my return. But I'm still glad that I went.. I'm still angry at him, but it was nice to be out in the woods, surrounded by living creatures that held no hostility toward me.
