A walk through the forest

This elegant little bird greeted us on our walk through the forest today. Its latin name is Saxicola rubetra (“buskskvett” in Norwegian).

A part of this forest consists of an impressing army of tall, straight and slim pines.

The Linnaea borealis is decorating the forest floor these days. According to Wikipedia it was the favourite flower of the Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, for whom it is named.

Author: Jan's bulletin board

I live in a part of the world called Norway with my wife and two daughters. I worked as a telecom engineer for 20 years. Nowadays I am attending a helpdesk supporting colleagues with computer problems. I am also a hobby photographer who believe we ought to pay more attention to how we treat our planet and each other. I trust the reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and I am disappointed that leading politicians in my own and other countries more or less have been ignoring warnings from the scientists for 20 years.
