Places that left an imprint on my soul

15.15 INGMAR MUUSIKUS
Contemplations of an invisible observer or sittings in various hides
There are many bird species who are impossible to get a close look at and to shoot in their natural environment without a hide at the right location or without getting to the hide at the right moment. Grouse, ravens, golden eagles and others are shy birds with sharp eyesight which means that one has to conceal its human traces. Perching invisibly in a camouflage tent, grouse cabin, snow hut, permanent hide or floating hide consumes enormous amount of time and patience. It could often be really tedious and result in catching cold. However, these long hours are rewarded in the end.
End approximately by 4.30 PM
