Do you enjoy being in a forest?

@Glennn,
Of course the dog was a threat for the elk mother.
But this calf was with all probality mentally retarded. She had been observed with the same calf for - I think two years - and the calf was rather helpless.
She started to attack golfers and they had to be shot at the end. Not the golfers the elks.

@roger,
You can also shoot like our neighbourg did and end up in a tree.
Early in the morning still in his pyjamas he went out to shoot an elk.
The elk heard the click from the camera. chased the guy, who climbed a tree.
There he sat till the elk after what seemed a looong time decided to leave.

The Stoneham Elks are OK as long as they're sober.
Which isn't often.

What if the animals aren't hostile? Or do you mean that the presence of any other species interferes with the ability to perceive nature?

@Thomas33,
Animals are part of nature.

@chai2,
I know, but some of my own perceptions have been that other species interfere with an overall perception of nature. Trees may be no different from a spider, or a fox, but I've questioned whether the former has meaning that a spider and fox don't have.
Have you ever had such perception?

Not since I stopped sniffing glue.

What are your feelings toward nature? Trees, sunlight, the acres of green; do you enjoy being in the presence of these?

I often plan my vacations around nature. I love nature. Brightly colored birds and flowers. Beautiful lakes, rivers, and waterfalls. Majestic mountains. All kinds of animal wild life. When I'm around nature I feel a since of peace and tranquility. There's also a since of wonder and amazement of the visual images. The sounds of nature brings calmness. The sound of water flowing, birds chirping, the breeze blowing. I love nature just as long as I am not in any danger. I would not feel safe walking in a forest at night. I would not feel safe in areas where dangerous animals have access of harming me. I strongly support all efforts of preserving nature and all of it's beauty and wonders.

Yes... I like it . green nature and green forest are always good. But When you prefer Artificial plants , it's require low maintenance and No need of sunlight.

In Britain the largest free roaming carnivore is the badger.

I went to car boot sales in Somerset and Dorset today, while we don’t have any mountains in the South of England there’s plenty of hills, valleys, woods and streams.

There is a really windy hill drive just outside of Shaftesbury on the way to Tollard’s Royal.

I’m sorry I can’t post images or links, but if you google zig zag hill Dorset you can see some great images.

Apparently it’s the bendiest Road in England. I never knew that, and I’ve been driving up and down it for years.

@izzythepush,
1. It sounds like a nice place to visit.

2. Do you have a favorite time of year to visit that location?

3. Is it more beautiful and scenic at certain times of the year?

4. Spring, Winter, Summer, or Fall?

@izzythepush,
1. Is this one of the images you are referring to?
2. I did a search on what you mention, and this is one of the images that appeared.
3. I don't know where this image is located, but the image is quite beautiful.

@Real Music,
No t’s not. It’s completely wood, no houses. At all, just trees.

I drive down there a lot I don’t know if I have a favourite time of year, but I have some memorable events. Once when I reached the top I saw a kestrel hovering in the breeze.

That’s a top memory.

@izzythepush,
1. I had to look up kestrel to see what you were referring to.

2. I found out that it is a type of falcon.

3. I am a big fan of unique birds.

4. I see humming birds frequently and often.

5. On two occasions I seen a road runner.

6. I didn't actually know it was a road runner the first time I saw one.

7. I saw it run all the way across my back yard and then ran up the side of brick wall.

8. It also had a tall height.

9. When I was a kid growing up, Blue jays and cardinals were very common.

@Real Music,
I’ve not seen either of those in real life, only films.

For a long time I thought a road runner was something Warner Brothers made up.

What seems commonplace to one person can be quite exotic to someone else.

My youngest son always wanted to see a raccoon, they’re not native, and only a few zoos stock them.

The first time I saw one in the flesh I was well into middle age.
