And so it happened that on a warm November evening we noticed that the soft and light snow had almost disappeared and the weather was grey and dark. Fortunately, now there are the Christmas lights in front of our home to add some sparkle in our life. :)
MakroTex-haasteen aiheena tällä viikolla on KIMALLUS. Ihana aihe ja niin ajankohtainen, mutta kimalluksen kuvaaminen osoittautui yllättävän vaikeaksi. :) Nyt on ollut niin kamalan pimeääkin. Kai jouluvalot voidaan hyväksyä?
Silmäni kyllä kimalsivat innostuksesta eilen iltapäivällä, kun huomasin melkein pihapiirissä jälkiä, joiden luulen kuuluvan ilvekselle (ensimmäinen kuva) ja ketulle. :)
Ilta oli jo hämärtymässä kuvaamisen aikaan:
My eyes were sparkling, with excitement and joy, yesterday afternoon when I noticed the tracks of (what I believe to be) a Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx), above, and a red fox (Vulpes vulpes).
Thank you, as always, for your lovely comments. I'm sorry I'm again a little bit behind in visiting your blogs... but I'll always get there eventually!
Edit: I must add here that Google has made me very angry today. Recently I left a comment on a blogger friend's post and wrote that now I know what something in her blog is in English. Today I happened to see the post in question and the comments translated into English by Google Translate. What do I see... that Google Translate changes my (translated) comment into something completely different, adding a note about registered trademarks (in the US) and omitting a sentence written by me! In other words, Google wants to decide whether we are allowed to combine two ordinary words to build a simple noun phrase.
Warning: If you read posts or comments translated by Google Translate, you can find there something completely else than was originally written and meant!
