Default Birdhouses have the best view and no taxes

Some birds have the greatest veiw.

These shots were taken on different days and different times.

Cheears for that, mate! Glad you liked it. Now that I have my camera, well, I only hope I don't overwhelm you guys with too many pictures about Finland

Haha, the only worry you have is risking exposing us to such gorgeous scenery that you get a massive influx of tourists!

Add me to the people who want to visit your beautiful country. You have what we don't - water, green, woods, natural beauty. Well, we have our spots that are special but they are so far away from each other.

Here is another birdhouse view of the lake. Currently the Sun rises 3:29 and sets 23:04. Length of day is 19 h 35 min. So, this photo was taken in late evening, the sun is low.

The second and third photos were aiming toward the sun, just behind the tree...

The last one is looking away from the sun... gives you a feel of the lake and how jok'n lucky this bird is.
