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.
