Last year I found a toad Bubo bufo [Erdkröte] in a nearby nature reserve and read up on it afterwards. Obviously I had just missed the moor frogs Raba arvalis whose males may (or may not) turn blue for up to three days. So I decided to try my luck again a week ago, but all I found were trees in their usual colours. Better luck next time!

I actually knew what to look for, because a user named Fice uploaded this shot to Wikimedia Commons. Thank you, Fice!

A cow must do, what a cow must do. And more often than not she has lots of co-workers/co-munchers/co-mooers. She likes to roam the green, green grass of home, but doesn’t mind that some of her colleagues prefer the lush pastures of rural Solothurn, a stone’s throw away – by a loooooong strong arm! And I threw some trees into the bargain… And a glimpse of the Alps can’t do much harm either.

How now, brown cow?

Mijas, Andalusia in January, but not this year. I hear it’s snowing heavily there just now. So much for Northeners hibernating in Spain! 😉
