Beauty in the details

Sorsa3

Today I took a walk to the Suomenoja bird reservoir to see if there are already a lot water birds nesting. It definitely looks promising! There’s going to be an event on 7th May between 10am-3pm, so if you are into watching birds and nature photographs, it might be a good idea to visit!

It’s an early Spring, snow has melt away but the green leaves and grass is yet to come.. Still, even the landscape is quite bleak, there’s beauty in the details.

Spring has come with full speed in May. Flowers are blooming and nature is full of different shades of green. Birds start singing in the early morning hours..

Today I decided to make a visit to the Suomenoja, to see the various water birds that live by the sea bay.

There were plenty of bids nesting within sight from the towers that are built for the birdwatchers.

Although I went to see the water birds, it was actually couple of muskrats that eventually stole my attention 🙂

Muskrats look so cute! One of them almost crossed paths with a coot.

The nature by the bay was also very pretty, with flowers..
