A Long Weekend in Finland.

Here are a few pictures from our recent trip to Finland. Some of these were taken in the forest so the lighting is not great (Tengmalm's) or at a great distance (Blue-tail and Siberian Jay).
We packed our thermals but the first two days were like being in the Med. and the permanent daylight took some getting used to.
