We started the morning at Petrie Island. It was beautiful sunshine with a crisp spring wind coming from north-west.

Song Sparrows were singing everywhere and Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers were drumming from several places.

The short trail around the island revealed Yellow-rumped Warbler, Ruby-crowned Kinglet and a Winter Wren.

After our obligatory stop at Timmy’s we went driving around, and on our journey we saw Greater Yellowlegs, Sandhill Crane, Bald Eagle, Barn & Tree Swallow, several sparrows and other songbirds.All in all we ended up with 52 species on this glorious day.

Professional Photographer accepting new assignments! After working as an Executive/Personal Assistant for 15 years, mainly in the oil and gas business in Norway, I needed a change in my life. Since photography had been a passion since I was a child, I wanted to do something creative and meaningful in this field. This inspired me to visit Greece for 3 wonderful years. After returning to Norway, I decided it was time to become a professional photographer/artist. In 2010, I graduated from “Bilder Nordic School of Photography” in Oslo. At the same time, I was working full time with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) International Arctic Program. In addition to nature & wildlife photography, I also do lifestyle, weddings/anniversaries, portrait and creative photography and I teach photography and photo editing.
