Yesterday we went fishing in the forrest. Since I have bought a new compact camera I decided to take it out for a "test drive". =) Got some nice photos from the lake we fished in.
Frode is fixing his equipment on the side there. Where he stands there is a bog, what we call a "hanging bog" as it is really wobberly as you walk on it. It's kinda floating on the water. I don't like that kind of bog at all, but this one is okay, bacause I know it is safe now. =)

Beautiful water roses. I kept looking for the frog but I guess he had other business to attend to. ;o) Haha!

On the way back home I said to Frode: "It's a pitty we didn't see a moose since I brought the camera and all". I swear that as I was saying that Frode hit the break and pointed out the front window. "There!" he said. I was like wow, are you serious?!

Guess he was! =D I carefully got out of the car, crossed the road and walked between the trees to get as close as I could. At first I thougth it was one, but when i took the first photo I noticed another one coming out of the forrest.

We did get within 30 meters or so. It was only a small part of the pond in between us, and we were still right inside the forrest. They did see us but the wind was in our favour so they were very wary and kept looking in our direction to see what if we were any treat to them.

They decided that we were a little too close for their comfort so they started backing up.

Slowly at first...

Then running. Best to be safe. =)
It was a very cool experience. Moose are not rare in Norway but I only see a moose every 50th time we are in the woods, so the chances aren't that great. They are shy and they mostly walk about in the dawn or in the twilight. =)
