After a long day with clearing grass in the heat we had dinner at a restaurant in Säter. Later in the evening I went for a trip to Risshyttan to try to make some pictures of the Heath Spotted-orchid and the Lesser Butterfly-orchid. They like the surroundings there in a rich fens sloping down to the road and the lake. Still hot outside and billions of mosquitoes took the opportunity when I was lying there among the flowers.
During the time I spent there I heard the distant sound of a thunderstorm almost constantly, south of me. If I hadn’t been so tired I would have chased the storm into the night.
