The average distance of the moon is 382,900 km from the Earth but its orbit is not completely circular, so the distance varies. A Full or New Moon that occurs when the center of the Moon is less than 360,000 kilometers from the center of Earth. The full moon that could be seen the night […]

Vadehavet Panorama-4 White wall of plovers. ©Ola Karlsson Last weekend I went with some friends from PhotoNatura to Wadden Sea in the south-western part of Jutland to chase the phenomenon “Black sun” in Danish “Sort Sol”, which is a very fascinating phenomenon when tens of thousands or sometimes significantly more of starlings form fantastic formations […]

4/7-2015 Saturday Night - Porpoises!

We got a trip to Kullen and a boat safari for Porpoises (mereswine) arranged by Kullabergsguiderna as a gift from dear friends and family last year. Saturday night the fourth of July we went for the tour. It was so far by far the best summer night this year – warm, with the sun from […]

15/5-2015 Kingfisher!

Every year it is the same – or is it? I find spring the most fantastic and rewarding of all seasons. It is pure optimism and all systems are on Go! This weekend I spent on Öland and the weather was great and I got the opportunity to get some good chances to great shots. […]


11/5-2015 Nöbbelövs mosse – within city limits

11/5-2015 Nöbbelövs mosse – within city limits

After 29 years in Lund I finally visited Nöbbleövs mosse. My friend Jan-Erik Jönsson has been talking about the place for quite some time and now he brought me here. It exceeded my expectations by far and I am fascinated that this place can exist (almost) within city limits of Lund. During the three hours […]

I try not to get too personal but sometimes it can not be avoided. Lina and I have reached a long term 16 year old goal! The success is grand and Lina and I are so proud to have accomplished this and not to give up. Not that we have been lazy but it just […]

18/1-2015 Pheasant & Red Kites

18/1-2015 Pheasant & Red Kites

My friend Torsten Green-Petersen from Visby was visiting today. He arrived to the farm quarter past seven while it still was pitch black. We hiked out and started to wait in the dark. The sky turned red and the frost in the grass gave a surreal touch to the scene. We saw several Red Kites […]


11/1-2015 Common Buzzards after the storm Egon

11/1-2015 Common Buzzards after the storm Egon

The storm Egon hit us hard last weekend and the sounds in the house during night kept me awake. Since I was already up I decided to get out to see if I could get some photos of birds in the aftermath of the storm. I went out in the dark and when the first […]


Into the Woods 5/12-7/12-2014

Into the Woods 5/12-7/12-2014

It was time for a last visit into the Woods in Småland for this year. We left Skåne Friday night and it was raining heavily. After half hour of driving the temperature dropped and the rain shifted to snow. The traffic slowed down and in the dark in the middle of nowhere we slowly went […]


19 900 Cranes @ Hornborgasjön 29/3-2013

19 900 Cranes @ Hornborgasjön 29/3-2013

I got up at 3.30 AM and drove a borrowed old Volvo home to Erland in Helsingborg, where we shifted car and then went to pick up Johnny in Markaryd. Erland and Johnny are friends that share the interest for nature photography and they are also members in PhotoNatura. We spent the day at Hornborgasjön to see […]


At first very quiet outside my hide 9/2-2014

At first very quiet outside my hide 9/2-2014

I am again in Frenninge to get some more photos of the Red Kites (Milvus milvus). This time I am aiming for real close-ups as a complement to the more distant environmental shots I got so far this winter. It has been raining for a week and most of the snow is gone now. There […]


Red Kite 2/2-2014

Red Kite 2/2-2014

After coming back from Tierra del Fuego I have been spending my time on getting pictures of Red Kite. Spending the weekends in Frenninge on Österlen (or as close as you can get) where it normally is quite a few of these birds when the snow is hitting hard. The first trials where just a […]


Andean Condors at Daybreak 7/1-2013

Andean Condors at Daybreak 7/1-2013

The third day of the condors – I get up at 4.30 AM to and I am out before sunrise. A beautiful morning with pink skies and the Kelp Gulls already outside the hide at arrival. Daybreak and excitement – light conditions can not be better. This is what I have been waiting for – […]


Day 2 of Condors 6/1-2014

Day 2 of Condors 6/1-2014

  A full day in the hide with almost ten hours sitting on a stick of wood. Divided into a morning session and one afternoon session with lunch in between. No real luck this day – before lunch we had the Andean Condors (Vultur gryphus) down on the ground quite far away and they stayed […]


Day 1 of Condors 5/1-2014

Day 1 of Condors 5/1-2014

  Up early and off to the southern parts of the Andes. We are going for the shy Condors. On the way towards the hide we stop several times and the drive takes at least an hour more than what could be expected from looking at a map. We get to see the Ostrich like […]

Kinesiska muren 4/7-2013

Efter att ha landat i Beijing var det dags att planera de sista dagarna. Jag fick tag på SnapAdventures i Beijing på förmiddagen igår och inom en timme hade jag en resa till Kinesiska muren i Jinkau organiserad. Om ni någonsin kommer till Beijing och vill ha något utöver de stora turistfällorna är Snapdventures ett […]


Havsörnar! 10/2-2013

Havsörnar! 10/2-2013

Nu var det dags för sista dagen på denna fyra dagars örnsafari. Gårdagen hade varit lite mager då örnarna fattades mat men som av händelse hade Hasse några grishuvuden och en massa talg liggande i garaget. Det skulle bli vår räddning. Av alla människor jag träffat är händigheten och rappheten hos Hasse överträffad hos få. […]


Havsörn 9/2-2013

Havsörn 9/2-2013

Upp vid fem och iväg till havsörnsstället i Gysinge. Hasse var som vanligt på hugget och det skulle bli spännande med ett nytt sälle. En kall och blåsig morgon. Väderprognosen säger rikligt med snö men med chans till uppklarnade väder framåt dagen. SMHI har satt en klass 1 varning. Vi kör i mörkret och letar […]


Kalmarsund 4/11-2012

Kalmarsund 4/11-2012

En fin höstdag vid Kalmarsund på smålandssidan söder om Kalmar. Solen sken och det var förhållandevis vindstilla. Sjöfågel drog förbi i sträck och en flock Ljungpipare snurrade runt i skyn. Vackra underbelysta från lågt stående sol och spegling i havet. Båtarna var uppdragna och väntan inför vintern var påtaglig. Egentligen inte mycket att fota utan […]
