King eider in Båtsfjord, Norway

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.


Golden eagle and carcass of fox

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.

Wolverine in Finland

Shot from a hide in Lieksa, Finland.

The wolverine is a stocky and muscular carnivore, more closely resembling a small bear than other mustelids. The wolverine, a solitary animal, has a reputation for ferocity and strength out of proportion to its size, with the documented ability to kill prey many times larger than itself. Wikipedia.

Difficult to get a crisp pic of a flying small bird. It is more luck than proper operation of the focusing system.  Here I was lucky.
