The highlight for me of my trip to Finland was, apart from the snow-covered forests, the Siberian Tits that posed nicely in front of the camera at Kahvikeidas. A long time ago I had seen this taiga speciality once but had never managed to see it again, despite several visits to the taiga. To have several nearby was a great opportunity.
First I tried to take pictures of them in the tree where they were feeding, but this didn’t really give the pictures I wanted. After walking around a bit, I found a nice pine tree where they often went after feeding. Here I could take pictures with snow on the trees, lichen-covered branches and other poses that showed something of its environment. Just before I had to head back, one bird seemed to wave goodbye at me before it flew off.
