Something new : a cool moss

I do not think i have ever seen this "for real" so to say, i
do believe i have only seen this type of moss in books.
I saw i today when i was walking around the lake. It really
does look like a group of teeny tiny cups.

Cladonia or cup lichen (bekermos / begerlav) is a genus of
moss-like lichens in the family Cladoniaceae. They are the
primary food source for reindeer and caribou. Cladonia
species are of economic importance to reindeer-herders
such as the Sami in Scandinavia. The light green species
Cladonia stellaris is used in Christmas decorations.

I made a bow-assistant

I made a bow-assistant, first in cardboard, to establish
the measurements. Afterwards i made it in plastic, from
the front of a DVD case i was no longer using. I am happy
with the result and it works too !

A visitor on the lake

Today we were again visited by a huge Sea-eagle
that, just like the one that visited the lake last year,
was sitting on the icy lake surrounded by a group
of crows.

It was a real beauty and of the same sort as the
eagle that was pictured on the front of one of my
new books on birds.
