SEA EAGLE LAND­ING

Cap­tur­ing a photo of a sea eagle feed­ing its chicks was al­ways a dream of mine. In an av­er­age year, only 20-30 pairs of these in­cred­i­ble birds raise chicks in Ice­land, and a li­cence is re­quired to pho­to­graph them. Since most of the nests are in re­mote lo­ca­tions, usu­ally only one or two sites are ac­ces­si­ble to pho­tog­ra­phers.

ARC­TIC FOXES MAT­ING

Arc­tic foxes are one of my favourite sub­jects, al­though they’re hard to find and pho­to­graph in Ice­land. They are amaz­ing crea­tures and they have my re­spect for sur­viv­ing in the extreme en­vi­ron­ment. This pair cop­u­lated ten me­ters from my snow hide while star­ing into the lens, which was both a mem­o­rable and an odd mo­ment.

AR­TIC TERN FEED­ING

This arc­tic tern flew the same route many times over this pond on Grim­sey, an is­land off Ice­land’s north coast, while fish­ing for small fry and in­sects. I was ly­ing in the mud with my 500mm lens on a bean­bag. The early sun and the re­flec­tion of but­ter­cups on the op­po­site bank cre­ated a nice tex­ture.
