Cormorant nesting colony. Lots of chicks there.

A blackheaded gull skims the surface with both beak and feet, Looks like it is walking or dancing.

And some of the new inhabitants. Young Coot chicks.

I have known about the Cormorant colonies but have not investing it much as it is a bit tricky to get there. But now I really wanted to see the actual nesting. The trees are on a small island out in the lake. I needed my 400 lens and an adapter x2, makes it 800m lens to get this image. I had to fasten it on the birding tower fence to be able to take shots. Camera is heavy and it was windy.
The cormorant flying was shot with the 400 mm lens.


The gulls was skimming the watersurface to find food and sometimes even used the feet.

To finish off  the coots are hatching. This is for you Anni, I think I remember you loved them last year. These are maybe 2 or 3 days old. I have some new images not yet uploaded. Will try to post some next week.

Reindeer in Varanger a cold and snowy day.
I´m going through my files from the trip to Varanger in March 2015 as I am posting them to Instagram. I love the reindeers so I thought "cold" images would chill one off in the heat of summer.
