The Born Hunter !

Det er faktisk ikke så mange rovdyr av betydning i norske skoger!
Bjørn, ulv, jerv, og gaupe er de få som kan skape problemer for husdyr, barn og/eller tilfeldige bærplukkere. Idag skal vi se nærmere på den fantastiske norske gaupa!
Actually there aren’t too many predators of some importance throughout the Norwegian countryside. We’ve got a few brown bears, since recently 40-50 wolves, wolverines and not the least the Norwegian Lynx, which we will present here today.
Oida, vi er oppdaget! Hrm! Kunne du tenke deg å komme denne veien slik at vi kan få en skikkelig kikk på deg?

Ouch, we’ve been spotted!  Hrm, would you please contemplate moving this way and let us have a closer look at, your majesty?

Auda! Han hørte meg!  Er det ikke noe som heter at man skal være forsiktig med hva man ber om – fordi man kan risikere å få det?! Så lenge jeg ikke blir ‘straks-mat’ . . .!

Aw, he heard me! Isn’t there a slogan saying like: Beware of what you ask for because you might just get it? As long as I’m not ending up as an ‘instant take-away’?!
Jeg velger å holde pusten . . .  Han ser i alle fall ikke på meg!
(Da er jeg ikke ‘mat’)

I chose to hold my breath . . .  At least he’s not looking at me!
(Then I’m not on the menue!)

(Compliments of SRB )
Please return me to INDEX for a new destination.

  1. Wow, what a series of photographs. We’re sure it had to have seen you? Is it a Lynx or Bobcat? The ones in our regions are very, very illusive and rarely captured on camera. Ours are smaller in size also.

  2. Oh wow, oh to spot this in the wild.. You have captured him perfectly..

    Flotte bilder! Her har du truffet blink ☺

  4. Very true! I just love when I can see a new creature period! Even more of a treat when I’m out someplace and see something new! Saw a raccoon the other day at the park but no time to try to photograph him – just to 😊 enjoy

    • Seenorway says:

      I understand racoons are more or less taking over? And that thery are very industrious in order to get what they want ! You even seem to have gotten a real big one lately?! 😉

    Oh, he’s beautiful! Your photos are fabulous, especially the close-up. Wow!

  6. What a gorgeous creature!! Makes me just sit in awe at all these beautiful animals out there!! Was this just out in the wilderness?!

    • Seenorway says:

      You think? (And that’s the main thing) The illusion og things all around you!
      No matter where you turn, what you hear and see. And there is the ‘real thing’ ever harder and more difficult to find!

    Thank you for the beautiful pictures and fun commentary. Glad you didn’t end up as fast take away.😊. It is a great shame there is not enough space for men and beast to co-exist without harm.
    Ha det så bra

      Hei Miriam, –
      Har en følelse av at du snakker godt norsk? 🙂 Ja, det er synd, men det er vanskelig å ‘stille klokken tilbake’ for selv om det en gang fantes ulv i Norge, så har dangens befolkning ingen erfaring med slike rovdyr og – vårt samfunn har idag enb helt annen karakter enn den gang. Da blir det nok dessverre bråk!

    Denne Gaupa så stor og flott ut? Har hatt gode dager i fjellet og nok med mat ser det ut for?

  9. Seenorway says:

    Majestic, indeed! (And thanks!)

  10. Beautiful……but there is talk of re-wilding Scotland and introducing Lynx and Wolves. None too sure about that

    • Seenorway says:

      Well, you’er not into the sheep-business, are you, David? But just today came the newspapers out with an article about another 101 dead sheeps found in our mountain ranges. Of course, temperatures run high and as long as our politicians do nothing, it’s just a matter of time before something really breaks. And it won’t be pretty!

      • Scotland has a heavy reliance on Sheep. But they say they also have a problem with Red Deer and predators would help keep down the numbers. It is the deforestation that has been blamed on Deer but to be very honest man did a far better job (sic) of clearing both people and woodland from the highlands…..but best not get into that.

        • Seenorway says:

          If one could be sure that it only went for deer and not sheep, but – I’m afraid you’ll experience the opposite. Deer are harder to see and they run faster, thus sheep are a much easier prey. I’m sure you’ll be getting the same situation as we have here in Norway with the wolf spreading int ever new aresa where you never belived there would be wolves. You wait and see!

          • I know…we never learn. We have Buzzards and Foxes, once a country animal now living in our towns and cities…why, because we have taken away much of their natural habitat and food source so they head to where they can find food

            • Seenorway says:

              Yes, you may see some of the same in Alaska and Canada where black bears are invading the suburbs raiding cars and/or garbage cannisters, but when these animals have a size that makes them dangerous to people/pets it becomes a real problem!
