see the animals only at particular times of the day, in places that
are part of their favourite routes because of food and rest.
It is best to observe these animals in their own habitat with a pair
of binoculars, a camera and lot of patience.
You can set off with a guide early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
Of course, walking on foot, in silence, willingly to assist to a natural
and timeless scenery.
You can bump into a wild sheep that is crossing the road or that might
lie down on the grass with the illusion of not being seen.
You can also wait in little wooden cottages where you can wait for
the animals to come out from the forest to begin their long nocturnal
eating of grass.
After a trembling wait you can see the animals coming out from the
dense trees. The head herd starts to browse.
Later, in springtime, you can see the puppies remaining at the back
of the forest, ready to run away at the mother’s first signal,
or playing and running in the large green expanse of the plains. There
are so many animals, always drinking water, eating and lying down on
If you are lucky, you could assist one of the most beautiful scenes:
a mother with its puppy, an adult deer raising its stately head, the
playing of the lams. The use of a camera will immortalize this moment.
When it ‘s time to go back, you can undertake a path through
fields and woods. After this long walk, your appetite will soon be
satisfied by a good honest meal at the Agrincontri..
