My friend Bert…

From June 1st to September 30th I am guiding and hosting fly-fishing vacations at Skålestrømmen. It is a magical place and I feel extremely blessed having the chance being so close to nature the whole summer.

One of the friends I made there is Bert. He follows me around whenever I come out of the hut. Clearly because my feet are stiring up the insects he feeds on, but as a human with a heart I like to believe he follows me because he likes me.

Bert has now found a wife… Bertine. I was wondering what was going on as he dressed himself up. But then I understood. There was a lot of commotion in the trees which I did not photograph. Bert deserves a bit of privacy.

Bert then decided to start building a nest in the wheel housing of my car. I found that a bit unpractical. A car suspension is hardly a good place to lay eggs and raise young birds. so we had bit of discussion. I ended up using brute force and moved the car. Berts testosterone level was too high to understand the implications of his choice of home.
