Disgelo.

Alcune immagini dello scioglimento delle nevi e dei ghiacci in primavera:  forse non sono le piu’ romantiche che avete visto,  ma sono realistiche.  Le ho scattate ad inizio Aprile.

Dal disgelo dei fiumi,  dei fossi e dei laghi rinascono le piante acquatiche,  come i gattici

Ed ecco cosa trovano i primi uccelli migratori che arrivano:  le acque sono solo parzialmente aperte e loro devono cercare cibo proprio in quei punti.  Comunque chi arriva prima,  trova sempre i posti migliori dove nidificare e questo e’ prioritario,  in natura!  I gabbiani sono uccelli forti…e i cigni sono sempre in coppia.

Thawing.      A few realistic images of springtime in the north:  snow and ice melt on lakes,  rivers,  ditches and banks.  These shots may not be so romantic,  but this is nature. All phots were taken in the beginning of April.

When ice melts,  water plants come to life again…

In the final photos you can see what migratory birds find as they arrive to Finland:  water is only partially open and they must find food in those open spots.  Seagulls are strong birds and swans always travel in couples.  It is important to arrive early,  anyway,  in order to find the best places to build nests…this is a priority in nature!

  2. Amazing Spring photos, from spectacular ice break-up to pictures birds returning to nest. I love the break-up photos…so artistic, but love the swans best. The one on the ice floe looks undecided…”to swim or to fly, that is the question”!
