    Howdy friend Ritva..
    How izz life in Suomi ? :-))
    A fine sharp composition. Excellent contrast and colours.


  • Thank you so much dear John! It’s been the coldest and snowiest January I can remember. Great opportunities for shooting if you can manage the coldness, hrrrrrr! Been a bit ill for a few days and going through some older shots on my computer. How was your trip to Canada? Newer been there but I’m sure it’s beautiful.

    Ihana vaaveli! (Joo, Kanada on paikoitellen mahtava)

  • Kiitos, Mari! Ei ihme, että suomalaisia on siellä niin paljon :o) Koska olet itse muuttanut sinne?

    Vuoden 75 lopulla, loysin mieheni taalta. Me vaan asutaan “Kanadan kainalokuopassa” valitettavasti.

  • Heh, en tiedä mikä on Kanadan kainalokuoppa, mutta tiedän, miksi Suomen ruuminosaksi Poria joskus nimitetään…

    Onkohan tämä pikku orava jonkun lemmikki? Hyvä kuva.

  • Kiitos Eeva! Tämä on kuvattu meidän terassin lintulaudalla. Siellä kävi syksyllä kaksi aikuista oravaa ja tämä pikkuinen.

    Great capture, Ritva! Your squirrels in Finland look quite a bit different from our squirrels here in Canada! You’ve inspired me to try to capture some good close-ups of the different breeds of squirrels here.

  • Thank you so much for your great comment, Steve! I’ve also noticed that difference in pictures taken somewhere else than in Scandinavia. Waiting to see soon your squirrel shots!
