A bere di notte.

a-bere-1

Siamo alle 22.30 del 27 luglio 2019:  nel pieno di un’ondata di caldo e di siccita’ che opprime la natura finlandese.  (Quella del 2019 sara’ una delle estati piu’ siccitose di sempre).

In questi giorni i notiziari hanno messo in guardia gli automobilisti:  qualche animale,  anche di grossa taglia,  potrebbe spostarsi piu’ del solito per cercare da bere e quindi potrebbe attraversare la strada all’improvviso…attenzione!

Nelle mie foto ci troviamo in mezzo ai campi di grano e avena:  un alce,  purtroppo ad enorme distanza da me,  attraversa con disinvoltura i raccolti e si immerge nel fosso a rinfrescarsi.

E’ rimasto immerso per parecchio tempo,  tanto che me ne sono andata via.  Aveva caldo e sete.

Per una visione piu’ ravvicinata dell’alce,  il mio post:  Supercornuto.

 

Night refreshment.

My shots were taken on July 27th,  2019.  It was 10.30 p.m. on a very warm night.  We were just in the middle of a hot air wave which brought onto Finland high temperatures,  drought and suffering for nature.  (Summer 2019 was one of the driest ever, actually).  Newspapers had warned car drivers:  beware animals crossing the road all of a sudden to look for somewhere to drink!

This elk was probably thirsty as well;  I saw him just walk through the corn and oats fields,  reach a ditch and get into it completely to find refreshment.  He stayed there for long time,  so I went away…and anyway he was too far for my camera.

For a closer look at the elk,  see my post:  Supercornuto.
