A VERY ANGRY BIRD / KVINAND

In Finland April this year I met a polish photographer who asked me why I don`t do much blogging anymore. I told him the truth : Nobody wants to read blogs anymore. It takes too much effort for people. However my polish friend said some very nice things about my blogging, …. so Piotr : thank you, this blog is for you !!

The local golden eye male was defending his "old lady" and his little territory around the open lane of water in the ice …. and did so with determined, ruthless anger !! 
All pics are shot in Mid Finland late April 2016. 
Thanks to Eero Kemilä for essential assistance …. and to Markus Varesvuo for great company in the box !!

The female`s low head position indicates invitation for mating … but he seems to be "somewhere else"

Although beeing a "brownie" at first glance, she`s a real beauty at a closer look

  1. Dette var en skikkelig actionfylt serie. Supre bilder av våryre Kvinender. Dette var moro å se på. Skarpheten er upåklagelig. Herlig lavt standpunkt. Bloggen din inspirerer meg og gir meg ofte lyst til å komme meg mer ut og jobbe for det virkelig gode bildet. Fortsett å legg ut gode bilder og gode tekster slik du gjør.
    Et lite tips kan være å komme med noen ord til de som kommenterer også.
    God fotosommer!
