From Spring till Summer

I haven’t written much lately, but it does not mean I haven’t done anything. Actually, I have been super busy since summer came to Finland, and to visit my sweet home in countryside. I have captured many photos along the spring and early summer, and now it is time to show what I got! So, enjoy the sights! Btw. Because I’m so tired currently, I don’t care to arrange the photos in chronological order. So, the photos seem to go from summer till spring and in somewhat random order πŸ˜€

Dirty-wagtail-in-a-box-WP_20150520_003.jpg

A random pic taken during a work day. Once I was walking to my work, and I saw a dirty wagtail running in front of me. I caught the bird easily next to a worksite, and noticed brown, oily stuff in its feathers. I put the bird in my pocket and then in a box, and called to an animal expert who came and took the wagtail to clean it. I hope the bird is now fine! We reasoned that the bird was otherwise fine but maybe got dirty in the worksite somehow?
