Photos of nature

This summer I spent almost two months in a cottage in the Swedish countryside with my family. The cottage is fairly isolated with the closest neighbours a kilometer or so away. This meant living closer to nature than I have ever done, and resulted in me taking an interest in the flora and fauna of the surrounding meadow and forest. The below photos document some of my findings. I will in future post (with the tentative title 'The doubts of a mathematical biologist') write more about my impressions of living close to nature.
