Busy weekend

It’s been a very busy weekend so I have lots of pictures for you this time. I have broken the pictures into four groups and there is a little summary before each set.

So the first three photos are from Seurasaari where we were walking with Unna on Saturday. There was lots of laughing gulls and a funny looking pigeon and I got some nice shots of the reeds too.

On Sunday we were in Ikaalinen since Chili was taking part in a obedience trial there. Chili did very well and you can read more about it from Ammi’s blog. I focused on some macro-photography while waiting for Chili’s turn.

During Monday we spent some time visiting my grandmother since she had not seen Unna yet. There were the usual huge snails in the cellar and I got a very nice shot of a bumblebee from our yard.

We went also for a walk to the nearby forest with Chili and got some nice shots of blossoming catkins with a bumblebee again and some hepaticas too. We also visited my old favorite spot in the forest which is a huge cliff where I used to rock climb during summer holidays and I got a pretty nice photo of the big pine that grows there.
