Arctic lights in Inari, Lapland

Wonderful arctic lights yesterday in Inari, Lapland.


White-tailed deer

There is a place where you can find rather easily deer and moose close to Helsinki.


A bohemian waxwing in Lapland

Waxwings were posing well close to our cottage in Inari.


Globe flowers at lake Inari, Lapland

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.


Common shelduck in Örö National Park

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

Greylag gooses departing from shore early in the morning. Guard gooses still in their watching places. Örö National Park in Finland some days ago.


Grass snake

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.


Goldeneye in golden water

Reeds make water golden.


Eagle Owl

Met an eagle owl since  a long time in a forest close to us. The bird is really impressive.

Pine grosbeak in Lapland

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.


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.

 


Golden eagle in Finland II

Another picture of this magnificent bird photographed in Utajärvi, Finland.


Sunny day in Helsinki in November

Yes, the sun is low and that is good for a photographer.

Winter is back
