Wonderful arctic lights yesterday in Inari, Lapland.
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.
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.
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.
Greylag gooses departing from shore early in the morning. Guard gooses still in their watching places. Örö National Park in Finland some days ago.
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.
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.
Yes, the sun is low and that is good for a photographer.
A new bird for me, today in Sipoo, Finland.
All Lapland was nicely covered by frost some days ago when I was driving through.
Late fall colors at lake Inari, Lapland.
A red-legged falcon has been posing several days for photographers in Tuusula, close to Helsinki.
