Spam of pics from today's walk in the woods incoming 🌿
Anyway today was great and it was so so pretty! Took a walk along a lake and a small creek quite some way into the woods. Theo had a lot of fun as well 💚
More pics of the creek and a small lad that was chilling there
So much green and a lot of fern 💚
sun came out a bit later which made it very humid but everything looked even prettier also lots of cool old tree trunks spotted
more moss and more views of the creek
okay spam done have some last few pics 💚
bonus: peak german humor
@deidara German forests are so fucking beautiful
@deidara there are zero reference points for the size of that lad, it could be tiny or a bloody lobster
@anarchiv lmao well the creek is pretty small an the water not very high so it can't be a big lad
@deidara I like my headcanon better...
@pfx @anarchiv @deidara I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems to me that this little fella is not an Astacus astacus, but a Signal Crayfish (Pacifastacus leniusculus). The bright patches on their claws are very distinctive.
Unfortunately, P. lenisculus is one of the agents of A. astacus' vulnerability as a species (humans being the root, of course). The problem is described in the first paragraph of the Wikipedia entry: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Signal_crayfish
@pfx @anarchiv @deidara (I am not an expert on crustaceans, but I wrote a newspaper article two years ago about this specific problem in southwestern Germany (it is in German, of course)): https://www.rheinpfalz.de/politik/rheinland-pfalz_artikel,-die-signalkrebse-kommen-_arid,1334384.html
@deidara hmm, it looks a bit different to Welsh forests. Sort of lighter, more airy, taller even? Not sure I can put my finger on it really. Perhaps it's the tree species or something.
@pfx yeah the tree species here are pretty mixed but I'd say it's not that light and airy everywhere even here in that forest are parts you can't rlly walk in at all
idk about other forests in germany tho
@deidara I guess it's just the pictures you took. After crawling around in the brambles trying to follow "footpaths" pretty much anything will look more open to me XD
@deidara you, a German: haha Bierfass
me, an intellectual: omg cute doggos in the background!
@the_gayest_goat_in_town lmao that's my dad with our dog walking there
@deidara whooooooooa that is incredibly beautiful
@deidara damb, i miss forest

@deidara These picture are great! I love seeing other people's adventures, and getting an insight into the local area.
