Briefly visited Orinoronrotko today during our mapping course - the site titled as "The Seventh Wonder of Savonia"... there was still snow on the bottom and the climate was nice and cool as the temperature climbed to over +25°C in the afternoon hours... the question remains: what are the other six...? #orinoro #orinoronrotko #finland #forest #bedrock #mapping #fieldwork #fieldcourse #leppävirta #summer #landscape #sunshine #rocks #ravine #paragneiss #geology

"Well hello there...!" Got an interested visitor on the outcrop today as this nymphalid (really cannot tell them apart from each other) struck an unexplained fancy to our safety goggles... glad that the macro was at hand... #nymphalidae #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #insect #insectphotography #butterfly #nymphalidae #hopeatäplä #macro #fieldwork #finland #forest #summer #orange

Spring feels like bnw... #helsinki

Slowly getting ready for the main trip of the year... looking forward to three weeks in the Mediterranean mountains: granites, birds, and hopefully good enough weather for exceptional landscapes. Sadly, testing clearly showed that the planned camera gear is way too heavy for the climb and I need to cut down to a lighter kit... means less birds but maybe a bit more rocks and views... stay tuned #holidays #summer #corsica #gr20 #trekking #hiking #mediterranean #naturephotography

Lately, I've mostly been fascinated by this little fella... ABO3 "We live in a beautiful and orderly world..."

"On väsynyt ja harmaa maa.
Ja märkää lunta putoaa.
Ja yli meren aution
soi tuulen laulu lohduton."

The lapwings have already thrown on their colorful summer attire... this fancy guy was grooming himself ready for the ladies by taking a nice long bath in a ditch by the local supermarket... #bird #birdphotography #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #northernlapwing #vanellusvanellus #töyhtöhyyppä #colorful #spring #springmigration #finland #helsinki #viikki #lintukuva #luontokuva #kevät #kevätmuutto #birdsofinstagram 025

Last weekend was just too brilliant for birding...!!! Shot nearly a thousand pics in two days and there seems to be fair amount of decent ones so I'll be posting these for a while... Here's a lapwing in flight from Saturday... they also arrived in numbers last week and there are hundreds of them flying around my hoods atm... #bird #birdphotography #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #northernlapwing #lapwing #peewit #vanellusvanellus #töyhtöhyyppä #luontokuva #lintukuva #helsinki #viikki #finland #blue #sky #spring #springmigration 024
