Wonderful arctic lights yesterday in Inari, Lapland.
Pictures taken at Pohtiolampi, Osprey Research Center in Finland, from a hide.
There is a place where you can find rather easily deer and moose close to Helsinki.
Waxwings were posing well close to our cottage in Inari.
On 29.7.18 was a calm and warm night in Inari.
And a warm evening at + 31 C, 30.7!
Globe flowers are beautiful and very common in Lapland.
The bird was posing very well!
Finally, after many tries, I found a bluethroat to shoot in Lapland.
Hornöya island in Vardö, Varanger, Norway on my way to fish salmon in Northern Norway.
On our photo tour to Örö National Park a couple of common shelducks was found. My first ever photo of the bird resting on a rock.
A wonderful shooting experience with friends Bore and Leppis in Kirkkonummi, today. Grass snakes in many colors including a complete black one were all around and they do not care of the photographers, almost not at all.
Reeds make water golden.
Met an eagle owl since a long time in a forest close to us. The bird is really impressive.
On our arctic tour to Varang fjord in Norway.
Photographed from a floating hide in Båtsfjord, Finnmark on our arctic tour a week ago.
On our arctic tour to Varanger, Finnmark, Norway we stopped at Neljän Tuulen Tupa to shoot northern birds like Pine grospeak. The other were Siberian Jay and Siberian tit.
The main goal of our arctic tour through snowy Finland and northern Norway, the King Eider! The bird was shot from a floating hide in Båtsfjord, Varanger, Norway.
Hares in Vadsö, Varange, Norway. Have been traveling for several days in the very North of Europe. Today found the hares just by good luck. Tomorrow heading to Båtsfjord if weather allows. Has been very cold but sunny all week.
Bearded Reedlings are back in Espoo. The birds were away for many years. Now they can be found in the same place than five years ago.
I know this does not look very nice. The carcass of a fox is used to feed the eagles and to keep them in the area, too. The same happens in the nature. The hides to photograph the eagles are about 30 m away. Anyway, the picture explains the quality of the eagle pictures I have shown earlier.
Another picture of this magnificent bird photographed in Utajärvi, Finland.
