Close enough

I was driving in the southern of Estonia one evening when I saw this roe deer come into a pasture. I stopped the car next to a forest after the field and walked back. The deer was slowly crossing a pasture with hay balls on it towards a wheat field. You never know with wild animals how they react to you and how good they can sense or smell you so I kept close to the edge of the pasture to blur my shape among the trees. The deer soon stepped into the wheat field and disappeared from view since the wheat was so tall. I could only see him when he lifted his head. I ran quickly but quietly to the other side of the pasture and stood by the wheat. Humans have a much larger footprint than deer so I hesitated to step into the wheat field at first, don't want to ruin other people's food source. The deer was totally oblivious to me so I thought that I wouldn't get a better opportunity to get closer and coughed a few times. He must have heard me but paid no attention at all. So I stepped into the wheat field and started walking slowly towards him.

When he lifted his head I stopped ( no matter what strange position I could have been in) and continued walking again when he feasted on the wheat. I was clearly visible in the yellow wheat but I noticed he was a young last year's calf so I was in luck - he didn't fear me. The wind was in a perfect direction and the sun was just ideally between soft clouds. There were so many horseflys that we both had a struggle getting them off.
At the end I was standing approx 10 meters from him when he finally decided that it's close enough :) I only noticed it's a he afterwards when I was looking at the pics from the camera, there were small dark circles were his horns will soon start to grow. If he was this cute as a youngster then I can't imagine what a handsome guy he will be next year! :)

This "wink" is so great that I think it would look really good as a postcard so if you have a custom text that you think would be good to put on this card just let me know and I would be happy to make the card for you!

Meet my friend

Something totally different for you this time. I want to introduce you to my friend who is partly to blame why I am so in to earrings now. She is a very talented artist, her paintings are amazing and she also makes jewelry. She is a very fun person to be with but I guess you will figure that out from this interview :)

Etsy shop:

Who are you and what do you do?
I'm Silja Erg, a biology student at the moment. I love painting, drawing and doing crafts. My two most recent favorite crafts are making bead jewelry and needle felting.

Where do you live?
I live in South Estonia.

What do you like?
I like when I wake up really early on holidays, so I can have a nice long day ahead of me. It doesn't happen too often though. I like learning new stuff.I like practical things, but I guess there are exceptions.
Also I like rock music, carrot juice and painting. Sounds like a party to me!

What don't you like?
When people pretend they don't understand something in sake of "not going there".
When people assume you can't take the truth or patronize you.

How big is your family?
There is six of us.

Tell me the most exciting thing you did this summer.
It had to be the bungee jump. I wasn't scared then but now when I look at someone jumping on Youtube, I get this hollow feeling in my stomach. It's weird to step on air from 80m high crane. It's just weird. And the next most exciting thing followed in a couple of hours - I saw Guano Apes performing live!

If you could hold one charity event, for what would it be?
Probably something local, not for the world peace or anything like that.
I hate to see news about people mistreating animals. Maybe organize an event where we beat up everyone who has tortured animals? Yeah...that would totally be in the spirit of charity...
I guess we could go a more humane path and make a fund-raiser. And use the collected funds for bribing the government so they would make better animal protection laws?
I don't have the cutest ideas I guess :P

Who's your favourite animal? Why?
It used to be foxes, because they are just awesome. But now it's cats, more specifically - our cats. Well, now it's just a cat, not cats. Because they make me laugh the most. They are very sneaky and they walk sideways sometimes. And they break your favorite jewelry piece and it all still looks cute.

What haven't you done yet but would like to do?
Go to school and be attending and devoted the whole day. Also it would be cool to learn to drive or ride a horse. Or at least become the president of the universe. I don't know, something from these four would be just fine.
Where do you find your ideas and inspiration?
For jewelry - I get 99% of the ideas while shopping for supplies. For other things like drawing and needle felting the ideas come from most random places and things and events. And when I am stuck somewhere like at a lecture or bus station I sketch stuff I saw or heard that day. Later when I want to paint something, I look through those papers to think back.

Would you prefer to live in the country or in the city?
I haven't lived in the city yet, but Prague for example seems pretty sweet.
I guess living in a small town is nice. There is public transport, services and shops near by but also air to breathe.

Quote to live by? "Training is the opposite of hoping"

Your idol(s)? Trey Parker and Michelangelo

Do you have an addiction? I mean like collecting/making jewelry or smth?
Yes, I had an addiction to shopping for jewelry supplies :D I've been clean for 4 months.....Haha. But I have a feeling it will pick up again in the autumn. Oh well... And I just cleared a wall for hanging earrings. So I guess I haven't quit making new ones. It's kind of a useful addiction though, don't you think? :)

What would you never do?
Wouldn't start spilling secrets when I get angry at someone. It would be punishing someone with making others think you are an a**. Clever?

Is there something you couldn't live without?
I guess not. Or maybe ear plugs. And I love my Internetz! :)
I mean, I could live without my gadgets and all but it would be such a drag.

Would you like to add something?
I wish we had pizza delivery and it would be free! Zen! U__U
P.s. Thanks for the feature :)

Thank you, my friend! :)
