Aren’t grayling truely colorful? Why is it then, that the name “grayling” has its roots in the color “grey”, the french call it “l’ombre” which is “the shadow”, and the German name “Aesche” has to do with ashes? Winter is approaching and the fins of […]
Hello folks, finally managed to upload a video after a while… I filmed it two weeks ago. The day begann very rainy and windy, but at some point the sun came out and the evening was in fact pretty beautiful – the fall colors look […]
