Norwegian Star Field

Tonight has been very clear but with little aurora. It has given me the chance to take some snaps of the stars. I need to improve my shots and spend a little more time getting the correct camera angle but this is not bad for a first attempt. It was taken with a 15 second exposure and an aperture of f2.8 using a Canon PowerShot S45. I have photoshopped it a little by enhancing the contrast and reducing the brightness, compensating for some contamination from the radar site down the road. Overall I am quite pleased with it.

However, whilst I was saying hello to the brass monkeys, I heard some rustling in the undergrowth. I immediately took a shot at short exposure and with the flash in the direction of the noise. At first I didn't see anything, but then I noticed the two light to the top, left of centre. Eyes perhaps? But of what?
