After a long weekend with good friends in PhotoNatura at the Island of Hanö, I am now struggling with processing all my photos. On the east side of the island there is a large colony of gulls which also host some razorbills.  Here is a first preview 🙂

All the best Thorsten

The Portuguese name is to me much more suitable than the English; Ringed Kingfisher. The largest and the most common kingfisher you can see along the rivers and wetlands in the Pantanal area, Brazil.

This hummingbird named the Glittering-throated emerald is common in the Pantanal area, Brazil. It is real challenge to catch a glimpse of it, and even more to nail it on a photo.  It is interesting that the hummingbirds of the new world, has its parallel in the old word; the sunbirds. They are extremely similar in habits and appearance but not at all related. A school book example of parallel evolution.

Best, Thorsten

The Hyacinth Macaw is the largest parrot in the world. It was close to extinction, but are now slowly increasing in the Pantanal area, Brazil.

We had the pleasure to see it now and then close to the Fazendas, but also sometimes foraging out on the plains, mainly on the Scheelea palm nuts.

Red-and-green Macaw eller röd-grön ara kanske den heter på svenska, fann vi på en helt magisk plats ”The Sinkhole” nära en liten by som heter Jardim, Mato Grosso do Sul. I denna sluka ca 200 meter diameter samt ca 80 djup häckade ett stor antal aror samt flera ibisar och några andra intressanta fågelarter. Veckans absoluta höjdpunkt !  Ha de Thorsten

Har ni prövat en lens-baby någon gång. En lite enklare form av tilt-shift objektiv med inbyggd kantoskärpa. Kan det verkligen vara något? Pröva det är rätt kul tycker i varje fall jag.

Ha de Thorsten


Var befinner jag mig?
