Here, a clearing of grass is a clearing of snakes

I went today with the daughters to Korkeasaari Zoo in Helsinki, and we walked around the island for three hours. My feet are a bit sore, because I'm not used to walking on a hard surface, I much prefer forests and swamps. But otherwise the day was excellent, sunny and reasonably warm, and the wind wasn't too hard either.

Tomorrow I'm planning to walk by the seaside again, but I haven't yet decided exactly where to go.

The photograph was taken at the southwest corner of Stormossen swamp on April 17th.
