Roy Mangersnes - Bluethroat

The Bluethroat, also named the Nightingale of the mountains, has a special place for me. During my Master studies in behavioural ecology I worked for two months with this beautiful bird in Jotunheimen national park, Norway. Its striking coloration as well as the magnificant song captivated me from the first day, and I have returned several times. This image show the bird agains the famous mountain ridge of Besseggen (1700m), the most popular hiking destination in Norway, in early spring.
