Luckily my luggage arrived during the night, so everything was ready for the next day. And what a day! Ever since I had my first meeting with the Great Grey Owl in 2002 I have been dreaming about the next time we would meet.
I am in Finnish Lapland and have been spending the entire afternoon with a beautiful female Great Grey Owl. It was amazing to observe this bird hunting in the forest clearing, diving into the snow with its long legs. Unfortunately Liodden and I are only in Finland for a couple of days before we go to Svalbard next week, but already I feel privileged to have had this experience. Hopefully there will be more tomorrow.
PS! Thanks Arnt Ove at Stavanger Foto for lending me some Nikon gear. It works ;-)
