Winged ones

Horned grebe done molting. Not that much beauty anymore

The chick at the head, Hardly seen.

Horned grebe pair lost two of the eggs but one was hatched. 
It is hard to see the chick as they swim on the other side of the lake and it is impossible to get good shots with the camera I have. At least I see them.

 Two of the best shots ever I have of the snipe/enkelbeckasin.
It is soon time for them to return south so I have to go looking for them. Hopefully some  will turn up.  © NF Photo 150809

Coot! Full speed ahead!

Chimney sweeper - Sotmätare
I have seen this one in "normal" numbers.

Holly blue - Tosteblåvinge
These are usually seen in large numbers. This year I have only seen two. And this one looks worn out.

  1. Hello,

    The Grebe is still beautiful, I have always loved the Snipes! Pretty butterflies, I really love the Holly Blue! Great photos! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Enjoy your day, have a great weekend. PS, thanks for the comment and visit.

  2. Evidently a lovely wetland visit. It is a little early for snipe here but in another month or so they will be starting to migrate through here.

  3. To see the duck family with their cute little chicks on their backs and the other wild birds. These are beautiful photos.
    The butterfly, what a beauty it is!
    I wish you a beautiful day, Elke

  4. Hello. Wonderful serie. Photos of snipes are so beautiful.

  5. I've not seen a Snipe for some time, but they're on of my favourite waders.

  6. That little chick is just adorable! Love the reflections you get in the water and that beautiful holly blue...what a pretty color!
