Orcas up close and personal

I have been fortunate enough that the town where I live have had a visit of a small pack of Orcas (Killer whales) for 5 days now, and as a nature lover, it is a fantastic feeling to watch these creatures up close and personal. I was out last night, and here are some of the pack doing there thing.

Pictures of the day: Mother and child

I was out in the nearby woods here in Northern Norway today, and came over this little fellow. A roe deer that was sitting in the fields.

After a little while a couple of small ears emerged , and I realised that this was a little young one.

Picture of the day : Deer me

This is one from the archive. Shot outside my parents hometown on the western part of Norway about a year ago. Unlike in my hometown where elk (moose) and venison are plentiful. There are deer that are the name of “game” on those parts of  Norway. I think they look quite stunning.

Picture of the day: For the better (natures tranformation)

This image is from South Georgia, it is a young penguin that is loosing its brown furry coat, and getting the normal fur and colours. I was a little scared at first, but the biologist at the trip explained that it was all for the best, and you cold compare the hardships with a kind of bad flu. But after a while they are the great creatures that we enjoy so much.

Picture of the day: The whaling station of Grytviken

This is the old , retired whaling station of Grytviken, South Georgia. I guess this was the largest, and most efficient of the old stations down here. It was left in the fifties, and it serves here as a great piece of history. The picture shows only a small part of the operation, but you get a little image of the massive scale of the operation.
