Early spring

Still it is a lot of snow in the woods. The sun is shining, the wind blows, spring is struggling to get a foothold. It is beautiful to see the thawing out of the snow. Grass, pine cones and the ever beautiful creek. Click on the pictures to make them bigger. You can see more pictures of naturfoton.me

Crossbill male

For the first time in my life I have been photographed crossbill. I know that the pictures are not good because it is a very long distance, but the good fortune to shoot this bird is so big so I would like to share with you.
17 cm. Large heavy finch with crossplied beak tip. The male and female red green yellow rump is clearly visible in flight.
Larger crossbill: Have powerful beak and shorter neck.
Available in all of Sweden where there is growing conifers. Eat preferably seeds from pine cones

Beautiful Nature

It is rarely we have so little snow in January. But this year there was a period of warm weather and almost all the snow melted away. Green moss on tree stump becomes like a colorful wig, heather, bark, feathers moving in the wind and the dog of course. A nice walk in the woods one day in January.
