Ultra busy start to the year so far. Already summer is looming and I have not yet been able to edit or go through all my photos that I have taken this year or the last year for that matter. Time is really not a thing I have too much of at the moment. Happily summer will be more free of timetables.

 

 

Into the woods

Hmm.. a busy time of the year, that which should be the most peaceful. Christmas. Been working so much, and with a lot of pressure, so blogging has been a bit erratic at best. ūüôā

A new year will hopefully bring good and positive things and hopefully it will be a bit calmer workwise as the year progresses.

Gavia Stellata – Red throated loon (Kaakkuri)

There a birds an then there are birds.  

One of the more rare and special birds I have gotten to photograph this year is pictured below:

A Red throated Loon, is a very beautiful and quite rare bird. Especially here in Southern Finland where I reside. I have seen this beautiful bird from afar many times and heard its song in the wild but yesterday was the first time in my life that I got close to it. And what a beautiful sight. Luckily this time the search was on for something to photograph so I was carrying a proper camera and also a longer lens.

This shot was taken hand-held on my knees in the swamp. A hilarious sight, but was really needing to get as close to eye level as possible so as to get a good composition. A beautiful day.
