Bog with small lake

The taiga isn’t always a thick forest. Every now and then you find large open spaces between the forest.  These places are often too wet for trees to grow, so bogs or ponds form. These places are important for the ecosystem. Animals use it to drink, birds feed in the ponds or use the bogs to find a save nesting place.

For photographers they give a lot easier photo opportunities, compared to the forest, as you have a bit  wider view, without trees blocking the scene all the time. Here you see the bog is already getting its autumn colors with the peat moss turning orange and red.
