The Cranes

The cranes are still here. The same four cranes. Two couples. Always at lunch time in the same field and practically the same spot. They have stayed here now for about two weeks. Maybe they will still stay till the night frost before they migrate.

Egg Rice Pastries

For some time already I have had on my mind to bake egg rice pastries. I actually bought a package of deep frozen puff pastry already a couple of days ago. Today is a rainy, bit chilly day. A perfect day for baking. It’s a long time since last time I made them. I cannot even remember when. Perhaps I should make them more often.

Lilium Martagon

I had forgotten the name of this flower so I looked it up on Google where it says it’s also called Turk’s cap. I learned the flower may be from pink, purple and white to brown and even black. I have seen them only in pink and white. I don’t have of these in my garden. These grow in the garden of a friend of mine. Google also mention it’s highly toxic to cats.

Deer

Uff, still upset I, last week, missed the opportunity to shoot close ups of the deer in my neighbor’s garden. But, I’m not giving up the dream to, one day, be able to meet an other one, eye to eye, and take my best ever close deer picture. On Tuesday there was one in the field not far away from us. I took a couple of pictures from, an about a 150 meter distance. He stood there like a statue but, when the two hares, closer to me, got frightened and ran away he too got scared and ran.

The Kaivopuisto Air Show 2017

The Air Show was arranged by the Finnish Aviation Museum and took place in Kaivopuisto Helsinki yesterday. The weather was gorgeous. Lots and lots of people. We were not there from the very beginning but, we saw Finnair’s new Airbus A 350 while still walking to the site of the event. Unfortunately I was not yet ready with my camera. We also saw Arctic Eagles, Typhoon and Gripens fly. They were fast and the noise level was high. I’m happy we didn’t take Canelo with us. The gray color of those planes made it hard for me to follow and my photos were no good. I deleted them all. Luckily the Red Arrows red color made it much easier to photograph.

A short clip. Quality not very good.
