White-tailed deer with extra ketchup I got to witness several lynx hunting attempts on different species of prey this spring. Only one of the hunts that I saw was successful. This deer (behind the lynx) was killed probably in the night before. #lynx #lynxlynx #ilves #nature #wild #wildlife #anima...
What makes finding lynxes so difficult compared to other large carnivores in Finland? Well if you want to practice ethical wildlife photography and avoid baiting, its challenging to find any of them (brown bear, grey wolf, wolverine, lynx). The first three species mentioned are relatively easy to...
Do you know the feeling when a wild lynx lays down in front of you and starts licking its paws. Neither did I until this happened. I often dream about finding lynxes but I must say that my dreams are usually more realistic than what the reality has been recently. I didnt think Id ever be able to ...
Last spring was all about flying squirrels. I found many great spots to observe and film them and I still havent gone carefully through all the content I got. This spring I havent put much effort on finding them again as Ive focus on other species. Couple of old spots I have checked have turned o...

A year later hard work paid off once again. After recently spending two weeks in Switzerland looking for lynx every da...
Pro bono collaboration @luonnonsuojeluliittoAs my posts usually only show the cherry-picked beautiful moments its good to sometimes remind of the harsh reality thats going on behind the scenes. Finnish nature and its wildlife is not doing well. The species mentioned on the video are just a small ...
Someone fell asleep in the middle of the breakfast (not the first time I see this happening ).I havent been publishing much here lately. The main reason is that Im just too busy working on some cool projects. Im looking forward to share the results #squirrel #nature #animals #wildlife #finland #...
This winter we had a decent amount of snow and a couple of really cold weeks when the temperature dropped below -30 degrees Celsius. I wish it was something like this every year. However as the climate is getting warmer the chance for real winters is decreasing. Whereas in the Northern Finland th...
Rainy day at the frog pond. Got myself and my gear wet (regardless of the umbrella - which is btw very unpractical to use while using camera) but got some decent looking footage #wildlife #nature #finland #frogs #reels #animal #animals #photography #wildlifephotography
