Roy Mangersnes - Abundance


The northern parts of Norway have had an enormous amount of berries on the local Rowan trees. Much to the liking of eastern migrating birds like Waxwing and Pine Grosbeak. These birds are born and grow up in the great eastern wilderness and some have never seen humans before arriving in someones garden on the coast of Norway. Their instinct is not run when people get close, making them great subjects for photography. Their overwhelming plumage is of course no disadvantage.

Location: Troms, Norway

    You are lucky ones! It 's true that we, in southern europe, have Bee-eaters, Rollers, Bustards, etc... But this bird is a northern dream (as well as others and other fauna)! I really love them, gentle and elegant, and this shot confirms just that... thanks for sharing!
