Rebane, Red Fox (Vulpes vulpes)

Finally I have an image about fox. Last winter I spent a lot of time to try to photograph the fox, but I didn’t have any luck. Thankfully this weekend I managed to get one image, for real, only one image and the fox was gone :)

And we have a littlebit snow here, love it :)

Lõpuks sain ühe rebase pildi. Võttis kaua aega, aga olemas ta nüüd on. Peaasi, et viimaseks ei jää :)

Tutt-tihane, Crested Tit ( Parus cristatus )

I have been chasing this bird for 3 years. Finally I managed to get an image. Really beautiful bird.

Umbes kolm aastat olen seda lindu taga ajanud. Küll panin kodus varje püsti või käisin metsades teda otsimas. Näha õnnestus seda lindu küll, aga pilti ei õnnestunud teha. See lind on lihtsalt väga kiire. Pikalt ühe koha peal ei möluta.

Tänud Tarmo. Ikka väga hea supiköögi oled püsti pannud :)

Birds through lens

After 3.5 months, my telephoto lens from guarantee maintenance is back home. This lens had a long trip, Estonia-Germany-Japan-Estonia.
It was so good to photograph birds again. I have said it before, but my interest to nature photography started from photographing birds. Can’t wait to go again. I hope I made justice.
There is 8 images. I hope you see these nicely. My last theme had some issues if there where more than one image.

Lõpuks sain teleobjektiivi garantiiremondist kätte, tervelt 3.5 kuud võttis aega. Aga tundub, et see oli seda väärt. Objektiiv on nats teravam küll. Edaspidi maastikupildid on plaan B :) Kuid kui ilma on siis ikka võtan ka lainurga kotist välja.

Halltsiitsitaja, Corn bunting, Miliaria calandra

Lovely bird in Lake Districts. I was on my way to Haystacks cumbria when I saw mountain lake. It was perfect place to have a meal and a hot coffee. Later I found out that it is also very good place to photograph this beautiful bird.
I really like the background, it is like painting. Behind this bird there was a cliff and the colors come from reflected light. The light source was sunset colors.
it was getting dark, so I decidede to camp near this lake where I got one of my favorite bird images. It was right decision to take my telephoto lens to this trip. Although it is way too heavy to hike on mountains. But I don’t regret :)

Punarind, European Robin, Erithacus rubecula

I photographed this beautiful bird back in spring when I was in UK. I thought I should recheck my spring trip images. I have completely deserted these pictures. Shame on me :)

Short-toed Treecreeper, Aedporr (Certhia brachydactyla)

Very well camouflaged bird. This bird always starts to search food from bottom to up and he doesn’t bothers if you get close to him. He loves pine trees.

Aedporr (Certhia brachydactyla)

Väga hästi maskeerunud lind. Teda võib kohata enamasti männipuude peal. Ta alustab toidu otsinguid alati maapinna lähedalt ja liigub ülesse.

Long-tailed Tit, Sabatihane (Aegithalos caudatus)

Little snowball is doing some push ups :)

Whole weekend I spent to search wild animal trails, ecpecially Fox trails, but didn’t have any luck. But at least I had the opportunity to spend couple minutes with these little birds, there where about fifteen birds. In winter these birds stick together for safety, also they find food easier this way.

Viimasel ajal on ikka päris tihti juhtunud, et satun kokku nende väikeste lindudega. Eemalt oli juba kuulda kuidas suure kisa saatel lähenevad :)

Tavaliselt on need parved jäänud 15 kuni 20 linnu kanti. Loodan ka edaspidi sattuda nendega kokku kui looduses uitan.

Great tit, Rasvatihane (Parus major)

Fun day in my bird hide that is located in my garden, but too bad that there weren’t that many different species.
Tomorrow is Estonia birthday, 99 years old. It means that we have long weekend. So I think I will celebrate this birthday in my bird hide :) Maybe I have the opportunity to see other birds also.

Ohakalind, Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis)

Northern Hemisphere parrot :)


Põhjapoolkera papagoi :)

Sabatihane, Long-tailed Tit (Aegithalos caudatus)

Little snowball.

Well, it’s been awhile since I wanted to photograph this bird. Today I managed to do so, but it’s not over yet, now I want a good quality image of this bird. That’s a real challenge.


Pikka aega olen soovinud pildistada Sabatihast, ning täna ka lõpuks õnnestus. Kirss tordil oli paksult lumine mets kuhu see väike lind sobis ideaalselt. Minu soovitus: Kui lähete jalutama kas või tuttavatele radadele siis tasub ikka kaamera kaasa võtta, kunagi ei või teada mis hetke tunnistajaks satute.

Põldvarblane, Tree Sparrow (Passer montanus)

One of the most common birds in Estonia, but rarely gets the chance to show off in front of the cameras. So I really wanted to photograph this bird. And he enjoyed it :)


Päris mitu päeva olen juba mõelnud, et tahaks varblast pildistada, kuna ei näe pilte temast just ülearu tihti. Kuid üllatuseks oli see, et too varblane hakkas ennast sirutama sedasi :) Pole varem sellist etteastet näinud :) Väga lõbus oli meil.

Season’s Greetings!

Happy holidays my friends!

Vesipapp, Dipper (Cinclus cinclus)

Finally I found the Dipper. It was really funny to watch how this bird swam in the stream. It almost seemed like he enjoyed it, but actually he was looking something to eat.
Almost freezing water is no problem for him.


Vesipapp omas keskkonnas. Kauge külaline tuli Eesti talvituma, kuna siin on soojem, parem kliima :)

Urvalind, Redpoll (Carduelis flammea)

I heard Redpoll song from afar, but I did not expect that they are flying so close to me :) It seemed that they didn’t notice me, but when they saw me then the song got louder and louder :)


Selle talve esimene Urvalindude parv sai ka ära nähtud. Eemalt oli juba kuulda kuidas hirmus kõva laulu saatel lähenesid :) Ja laul läks veel valjemaks kui märkasid mind ca 5m kaugusel. Eks nad ehmatasid ära :)

Põhjatihane, Willow Tit (Parus montanus)

Beautiful bird with really gorgeous background.


Õige lind õige taustaga. Üks lemmikuid lindude pilte :)

Sinitihane, Blue tit (Parus caeruleus)

Finally I had the opportunity to photograph Blue tit. It is really beautiful bird, but some how this bird reminds me sci-fi movie called Alien :)


Lõpuks õnnestus ka Sinitihast pildistada. Mingil kummalisel põhjusel meenutab see lind mulle ühte filmi mille nimeks siis Alien :)

Day with small birds

Nice day in bird hide. Actually I saw 5 different kinds of birds, but I could not make decent picture of Blue tit. I hope I have better luck next time. Photographing small birds is quite stressfull, but still I think it is the best way to not to think about everyday problems. So yeah, can’t wait to go back :)


So here are the the main characters :)

Willow Tit, Põhjatihane, Parus montanus

Nuthatch, Puukoristaja, Sitta europaea

Great Tit, Rasvatihane, Parus major

Greenfinch, Rohevint, Carduelis chloris

Aedporr, Short-toed Treecreeper (Certhia brachydactyla)

Ballerina

Great Tit, Rasvatihane (Parus major)

Crested Tit, Tutt-tihane (Lophophanes cristatus)

Rasvatihane, Great tit (Parus major)

Great tit with some autumn colors. Beautiful bird.


Aasta lind Rasvatihane sügis värvides.

Short-eared Owl, Sooräts (Asio flammeus)

One more picture of this beautiful bird. Same day, but through leaves. Autumn colors. I found out that this bird unfortunately belongs to II categories because this species population decreases.


Üks pilt veel sellest ilusast linnust. Seekord läbi lehtede, et tekitada värviline raam. Sügis ikkagi :)

Autumn surprise

Finally I had opportunity to photograph this beautiful bird. He was very brave. I was about 10m from him. We stared each other about one houre, long after my camera batteries were depleted.


Lõpuks ometi oli võimalus kakku pildistada. Õnneks kaamera akud said suhteliselt kiiresti tühjaks, jäin ainult kaks tundi tööle hiljaks. See oli väärt seda :)

Noor Punarind, European Robin juv. (Erithacus rubecula)

It was so good to go early in the morning to forest with telephoto lens. My real passion for nature photography started with bird photography. About 1,5 year ago my telephoto lens interesting life ran out. Actually this lens was very cheap anyway, but still. At least I had something.

Last weekend I thought, why not, I should rent one, becouse I can’t afford new telelphoto lens yet. Yeah, It felt so good to go and search birds again.

Also last week I joined with local photographers author environment (www.wallprint.ee) for selling my photos. Also it is possible to licence my photos. I hope to fund that way new telephoto lens purchase. I realised, that I really need one. I miss wildlife photography.

Have a nice weekend!


Üle väga pika aja sai jälle käidud metsas teleobjektiiviga, renditud aga siiski. Oli ikka hea tunne küll. Minu huvi loodus fotograafia vastu algas just lindude pildistamisest. Viimati sai linde otsitud umbes 1,5 aastat tagasi kuniks objektiiv ära lagunes. Ei teagi, kas ei sobinud talle -25* külm või midagi muud.

Eelmine nädal ühinesin ka Wallprint.ee autori keskkonnaga, et piltide ostmine oleks läbipaistvam ja kliendile oluliselt lihtsam. Kõige suurem tunnustus on see kui otsustate, et minu pilt sobib kaunistama Teie kodu või kontorit.. “Pilt ei ole valmis enne kui see on prinditud”, nagu minul meeldib öelda :)

Ilusat nädalavahetust!
