Just a few minutes into my walk I saw a raven chopping up a slow worm in three parts. :-( I rescued the reptile as best as what you can call rescue in that state. Crazy how the the tail and middle part kept on twisting hard for minutes. I didn't see where the raven went hiding, so I can only hope it did not reattack after the slow worm went its way and I left the scene.

The small forest pond was covered in pollen, looked like a liming truck went by. And the other one with the duck was really oily. Way more than last time. Didn't look healthy at all. :-(

I've been out a few hours again. I came across a dozen or so forest mice. I heard tons of squeaking and saw a lighting fast moving seething mass under leaves and groves. It was impossible to capture anything but I could watch it for two, three minutes. They even seemed to come as close as 20 centimeters judging by the rustle and moving plant leaves. Pretty cool.

But heaps of people had to fire up their noise machines today. That clouded my overall joy in nature. Once a commercial airliner was about to fade away in the distance, the next one already adumbrated itself. Lots of prop planes and even a helicopter. Obnoxious loud super cars and motorcycles with broken off mufflers or I don't know what. My felt hat amplifies the sound I noted.

Luckily, the sun hid behind the clouds most of the time, so I survived the 25°C. Even hotter tomorrow, yikes!

We had 11°C and a lot of wind today. I left the house at beautiful sunshine to go into the woods. I had to shelter from the rain under a coniferous tree right away for 10-15 minutes or so.

Many puddles had plenty of spawn in them. Some of the super tiny tadpoles already hatched. Unfortunately, none of them will probably make it, because all those puddles will all dry up in the next one or two months I reckon. Let's hope for the best, though.

Spawn

A bird landed in the trees about 30 meters away from me and it appeared to be a larger one, like a buzzard. Only at home at the screen I then saw that it was just a pidgeon. :-)

A bit later, there was a chaffinch happily singing and picking on the forest road. I could close in to about five meters before it flew half a meter further and continued. So I made a few steps, too. That game continued for over five minutes, before it then decided to relocate four meters higher onto a branch to let me pass by beneath. Pretty cool!

We participated with the scouts in the county cleanup day and even found a whole rubbish dump at the edge of the woods. Somebody must have dumped a whole truck load down the hill and burried half of it. We filled up a complete trailer with that. I reckon you can get much more out of this place.

Just in time for the start of the event, it began pouring down on us. It was very muddy, but still good fun. One cub scout said: "Oh, this is so cool! Walking around earlier on the paths and picking up trash wasn't bad, but this here is really awesome. I really do enjoy it a lot. Look how much trash there is. Crazy!"

It took me half an hour to hose down all the clay from my rain jacket, -trousers and boots. What a mess.

We rode our bicycles to the Reiterleskapelle (Rider's Chapel). At first the sun was out but then it vanished behind the clouds. Icy headwind from the east and a subtle incline all the time made for a physically demanding journey there. The way home was rather quick and effortless. We could have used gloves, it didn't feel like 14°C at all, not even close.

I noticed this afternoon that we currently have Carnival vacations this week. So many people outdoors.

I've seen three great spotted woodpeckers and heard dozens more hammering the trees. But the photos turned out to be rubbish.

It was very windy at the summit, but I sat on the castle wall and enjoyed the sun beating on me. I would have loved to just relax there half an hour longer, but I had to be back in time. :-(

09 looks like it's straight from an AI, but the moss was actually on top of a smaller tree. I fell down from a giant moss-covered tree next to it.

Quite cool how much reach the lift's outriggers have to level it on that steep street.

29-32 show the reason for closing the forest road for one and a half months. A tree fell over and got hung up in the telephone cable in a 45° angle. Only the wire prevented it from crashing down on the road. I find it astonishing that the cable did not rip apart. After all, the tree was quite substantial. No idea why it took them so long to get it removed, though.

The entire meadow in 36 was totally covered with mouse holes. Sick!

I went to the dairy farm and back in 50 minutes. It was suprisingly dark. Luckily, I walked the forest paths a hundred times, otherwise it would have been very hard to find my bearings a few times. On the way home I wanted to shortcut over the meadow, but then realized that there were grazing sheep. I took a detour to not wake them up. This quick walk was very well needed to blow the cobwebs away.

With all the wind we decided to stick to the forest as much as possible to protect against horizontal rain.

Grrrr, those bloody printers! Cost me two hours to make it work again. It just didn't want to print anymore. Print jobs were received and then it rattled, stuff inside moved around, the fan ran, I could hear all the regular noises, but no paper came out.

Black and white copy gave me at least an empty sheet of paper. Color copy even printed something, not the best quality, but there was definitely color on the paper.

The first test print attempt then set some mechanical actions off, "Please wait" was shown, I could hear stuff turn for quite some time, but nothing really happened. Neither did I get a paper nor an error message. Just got returned back to the submenu where I left of. That was it. Any subsequent test print attempt resulted in even only a "Printer busy" message. Nothing happened at all. No noises, nothing. So I restarted the printer. Rinse and repeat, same story.

In the end a printer factory reset did the trick. But the "Printer" menu item to do so was only visible right after reboot. Whenever some kind of printing action was submitted, the "Printer" menu item simply disappeared. After reset I could print the printer configuration page. A one-page print job from the computer was successful, too. Even totally acceptable print quality. Just like nothing had ever happened. Let's see how long that lasts.

The manual's troubleshooting section was of no real help. It didn't have any of my symptoms (except for "does not print", but all suggestions were clearly not useful in my case). It only made me realize at some point in time that there should be a "Printer" menu item. I think that's now always visible.

I also wanted to replace the drums, but I transposed a number, so I ordered the wrong unit. Luckily, I only opened the outer box, the drums are still sealed in their original wrapping.

I really enjoyed to finally get some shop time again. It's been quite a while. But today I started on the shelves.

In the afternoon I then decided to go out and soak up the winter sun. This turned into a four hours walk. In contrast to yesteray, there were a lot more people on the way. I wore my other gloves and boy, do they work better. So much warmer! Gonna always bring them from now on.

The autofocus left me in the church when I spotted the great spotted woodpecker in 03. Sigh. Despite the focus causing trouble yet again, timing in 31 was perfect. The fisherman casts his net to catch the car. ;-)

Two people were having a barbie at the public fireplace on top of the mountain. Haven't seen that in action for quite some months now. The fire smelled beautiful.

Today was incredible. It felt actually fairly warm in the sun without any wind at all. We came across surprisingly plenty of snow. And ice. There is barely any snow left in town. But as soon as you leave it behind and enter nature, it's a different story. Some parts were just unpassable. On the way back we slid down 10-15 meters on a thick ice-covered road. That was great fun. The flag in 05 was frozen solid. 13 and 14 shows a beautiful stalagmite, but maybe it was a stalagtite that had been melted off of the bench. Not sure. The surroundings were extremely blue today, 16 shows that bit. Very unreal. Nobody of us has ever noticed the lock beneath the red lady (22 and 23).

Called it quits a bit earlier to enjoy the lovely sunshine at 1°C. I heard plenty of woodpeckers hammering trees, but despite great conditions without leaves on the trees, I could only spot one. Trying to point the camera at it and it was gone already. When the sun sets, temps rapidly drop. We're currently at -4°C. In order to operate my cam, I stripped my gloves too often. My hands got so cold that it actually hurt. Hottie to the rescue again.

I just measured on a map that I hiked 22.5 km in 5:30 hours today. And I took 723 photos (yes, I'm totally insane; for your viewing pleasure I reduced them to only 96), which resulted in a lot of stops and a bunch of wasted time. I reckon I haven't done this trip often enough, because I took the wrong turn-off – twice, on the way there and back – which cost me several extra kilometers. Well, I was just enjoying myself in nature, so that wasn't bad at all. It just meant that I wouldn't be home before dark. And that's totally fine with me. Maybe next time I care to remember to walk the more direct route. We'll see.

The golden autumn is so fricking beautiful. It only rained in the morning, so I left right after lunch. We then had a good mix of clouds and sunshine. At the beginning, the sun was out for at most 10 seconds in a row before the next cloud covered it up again. My camera takes longer than that to boot, so I missed a ton of opportunities. But judging by the number of photos, it didn't hurt at all.

9 and 10 is a common kestral. I could figure that out based on another photo which had good colors but was very blurry. Unfortuntately, the deer in 30-32 were too far away. A few hundred meters I'd say. I had to think of Rapunzel in 84-86. :-)

After dawn and one and a half completely drained batteries I walked past a bunch of trees and wondered what kind of birds were sitting on them. They didn't look like ravens or something similar. Suddenly, 20-30 red kites flew up (their V-shaped tails made it crystal clear). I have never seen so many of them in a flock. Not even close. That was super cool to watch. Much later after dark I also saw a bat flying over my head. Nice way to end this trip.

It just looks so cool when squalls stir up leaves. Colorful spots flying all around. Quite hard to capture on film, though. Several people took advantage of the autumn storm and flew their kites. Currently, the conditions are absolutely perfect for that. We usually don't get a lot of wind that's suitable for that kind of fun. A sharp-edged and gale-force-accelerated leaf nearly cut my lip open. Never had anything like that happen before.

I called it quits relatively early this afternoon, so I could take advantage of the remaining daylight on my three and a half hours long hike. In contrast to yesterday, I was prepared for all the rain, much better, let me tell you. The low hanging clouds are always very nice to watch. It's the time of the crazy people again. When I photographed the decorated house, a car pulled up and was nice enough to wait for me to finish before parking in front of that house. Much appreciated. When I arrived back in the so called civilization, tons of parents crowded the streets with their brats to hunt for sweets in the neighborhoods. I should have taken a few hours longer tour…

It was gray and rained the whole day, that was actually very nice and calming. So after work I decided to go for a one a half hours rain stroll. On the way home the sun came out to set. The rainbow fell victim to the autofocus, though. In fact, easily half of the photos were totally ruined. Not sure what's going on with that cam.

Where the heck are all these tiny flies coming from? For weeks I'm murdering numerous of them each and every day.

Today was gray in gray, like a November day, but we went out in the very light rain anyways. And it turned out to be really nice. We had to strip our rain jackets and jumpers, temperatures were surprisingly high. Perfect for walking outdoors. At the summit of our backyard mountain we were rewarded with a nice fog landscape. On the way home we ran into a newt. Definitely the hightlight of the day or even week. It's my first one this year, last year I haven't seen a single one. I only wanted to blind him at most twice with my camera flash, so sorry that there is no better shot.

A mate just told me: On 14th October 2023 most of the civilized world will celebrate World Standards Day, as agreed upon by American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants (IESBA), International Organization for Standardization (ISO), International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

On 12th October 2023 the United States will celebrate World Standards Day, as specified by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This pretty muchs sums up the American consencus on following global standards. At least there's ASME I reckon…

Woah, amazing unicorn vomit! Without a doubt one of the best sunsets this season.

We were a bit over 30 km on our feet the last two days at around 17°C. Not too shabby, perfect hiking conditions. Unlike forecast, it was beautiful weather on Wednesday. Only yesterday the sun was covered by clouds. It's a sunny 19°C day, but I had to cancel today's 12 km hike as I woke up with a pretty sore throat. :-( Damn!

We came across two grasshoppers, one of which even climbed my leg to escape my mate's photography. Really awesome. The other one crawled over my hand to get away of the photo shooting. Its hooked feet tickled a little bit. That was the first time I got this close to these little creatures. What a truly wonderful experience.

And I was super happy to see the lizards again. There were plenty of them, but I find them quite hard to spot. And they almost always vanished immediately.
