Golden eagle

I spent a day in Finnature‘s golden eagle hide in Utaj√§rvi. Great facilities there too!

This time there was only one golden eagle and so there was no chances to shoot any action pics, but it is a great beautiful bird!

Gear: E-M1X + M.Zuiko 300/4 and E-M1 Mark III + M.Zuiko 40-150/2.8 + MC-14.

Eurasian eagle owl

I spent a night in Finnature‘s forest feeder studio in Liminka. There are LED lights so you are able to shoot portrait pics all the night. Facilities are very good, I can recommend the place.

All pics are non cropped, ISO 5000-6400, 1/60-1/100 sec. All the E-M1X pics were shot with bird tracking AF – I must say it is very accurate focusing to bird’s head and eye. In these kind of circumstances silent shutter is also a must.

Gear: E-M1X + M.Zuiko 300/4 and E-M1 Mark III + M.Zuiko 40-150/2.8 + MC-14.

Swans

Lake Littoistenjärvi got frozen. Still there are about 40 silent swans and a dozen whooper swans though their chances to find food get worse day by day.

It seems like some of the silent swan youngsters are still doing their flying exercises. They will be in a hurry. Whooper swans are ok, just waiting for the right moment to go.

Gear: E-M1X + M.Zuiko 300/4 with MC-20.

Highlights(?) 2020

Well, nothing spectacular this year, but here are some pics which are meaningful to me in a way or another.

Gear: E-M1X, E-M1 Mark III, PEN-F and several M.Zuiko lenses.
