On our arctic tour to Varang fjord in 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.
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.
A new bird for me, today in Sipoo, 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.
In Inari, Lapland is still early spring. Swans are in flocks waiting for opening of their final destinations at lakes and rivers.
