Thank you Kastl for your kind comments and like, and I appreciate your favorite. The photo is taken from a kayak, with telephoto lens, in bad light but still a decent photo. They are impressive birds. Greetings from Sweden, Mats.

Tack Agneta för dina vänliga kommentarer och like. Det är inte så lätt att sitta i kajaken, i dåligt ljus och försöka fånga fåglarna med ett långt tele. Men efter omständigheterna blev det ett ganska bra kort. Det var kul att få se fåglarna i verkligheten. Vi var där i somras på kombinerad båt och vandringsresa, men då såg vi dem bara på väldigt långt håll. Nu, på vår paddingstrip i oktober, såg vi dem flera gånger från kajaken, de är verkligen imponerande. Tyvärr kom motorbåtar och störde, kajaker är bättre. Hälsningar, Mats.
