Goodbye Summer

from by Veljo Runnel



The end of August in Estonia. Nights are getting darker and chillier. Bushcrickets' chorus in undergrowth fills the small grove, Tawny Owl marks its presence. Seaside is not far, the calls of waterbirds, takeoff pattering of swans, trumpeting of Common Cranes and moaning rut calls of a Moose can be heard on background from coastal lagoons and floodplains around them. Barking of a dog echoes from the forest edge.
28. August 2012. Siiksaare, Saaremaa, Estonia.
