For the past week and a half, I have been in lovely Herrang, Sweden for a dance camp. It's a really fun event in a beautiful locale, with a small lake, a tiny beach, and verdant countryside all around us.
Yesterday, I did a little nature walk and encountered lots of lovely flora and fauna. Here's some of what I saw.
There are tiny frogs everywhere, it seems.
The roads at certain hours seem to have hundreds of them making their away across to the other side. Sadly, they are often squashed by walkers, bikers and drivers.
The other afternoon, I saw a young woman wearing plastic gloves, gingerly lifting them one by one across one road. A sissyphean task for sure, but she seemed to enjoy it. "If not for these little guys, we'd have a lot more mosquitos here!" she explained.
The meadow behind the Folkets Hus (town hall) of Herrang has some special biodiversity, according to this sign.
I walked around for a bit and spotted lots of lovely wildflowers and insects.
