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.
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 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.
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.
Crested tit – always a pleasure to meet.
All Lapland was nicely covered by frost some days ago when I was driving through.
With a fisherman, today.
Maybe not very beautiful but really elegant.
Steller’s eider is the second most beautiful water bird, after King eider. Smew is very nice, too.
Common eiders in the background and male king eiders in front. Shot today in Båtsfjord, Norway. King eiders look somewhat exotic.
A beautiful white bird in Lapland, today.
People enjoy a bright day and clean ice to walk on.
Still no snow here around Helsinki. Black birds are many and really fearless.
I do not like using power words but now I have to. Look at those colors and the number of the ducks enjoying.
