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

Common shelduck in Örö National Park

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.

Arctic hares in Varanger, Norway

Hares in Vadsö, Varange, Norway.  Have been traveling for several days in the very North of Europe. Today found the hares just by good luck. Tomorrow heading to Båtsfjord if weather allows.  Has been very cold but sunny all week.


Bearded Reedling on snow

Bearded Reedlings are back in Espoo. The birds were away for many years.  Now they can be found in the same place than five years ago.


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.

Beautiful boat

Perhaps in a wrong place this time of the year. Should be covered as dry before cold weather comes.
