Finally we got some ice and snow in Helsinki. Unfortunately snow will disappear soon.


Coal tit

Coal tit is a small bird who does not have a comb. He never looks nicely set.

The nest of ospreys is on a small island.  There is a fallen tree with a big chunk of roots and soil and a hole through which the lens is put out. One could call it an organic hide.

Yesterday there was three ospreys flying around. Looked like that there was one too many.


It’s beautiful out there

Our stay here will end tomorrow. After 14 hours of flying we will be back in Finland on Tuesday afternoon.

Cape White-eye.  The chick dropped down to our terrace and found his place on the cross.  Parents worked hard to feed him there.

Third January in Cape Town for us. We like this beautiful place and the weather here. This year has been too hot, around 35 degrees without wind. At home, in Finland has been 35 degrees, too.  Minus.

The bioluminescent waves of Vaadhoo Island

The bioluminescent waves of Vaadhoo Island

Doug Perrine, a marine biology photographer, has captured stunning images of bioluminescent waves, in Vaadhoo Island, Maldives. The spot holds a concentrated population of bioluminescent phytoplankton, much to the delight of photographers.

Various species of phytoplankton are known to bioluminesce, and when washed ashore by the tides, their chemical energy is turned into light energy, illuminating waves all over the world.

The biological process is ancient, natural and found around the world. If you’ve never seen it, it’s most easily observed on nice, warm beaches after dark.

Nature at Lake Inari

Nature at Inari lake – it is so bare but so beautiful. Picture taken at Suovasaari, close to Inari village in Lapland.


Made by man or not?

When hiking at the riverside of Inari-river close to Angeli in Lapland we found this set up of round stones. One stone in the middle and four  around.  Looks like made by man and maybe “Seita”, a holy  place of ancient people?


A picture taken five meters from the cottage

Sometimes you do not need to go far.  I was photographing mushrooms and lichen in the woods and when getting back to our cottage I took this pic. I like it!


Thursday Theme “Picture of bottles”

Here is one modern version of  bottles.
