European shags in Vardö, Norway

On our arctic tour to Varang fjord in Norway.


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.

A new bird for me, today in Sipoo, Finland.


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.
