So I am back home sick, will possibly try my luck in another hospital on Tuesday. On the second day of my realease I had a shivering attack with jaw chattering and later 39.8°C fever, which means: "4 weeks in hospital, no change of symptoms"...

Today for the first time since getting into hospital I took a real camera into my hands:

You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Today the Pride Parade filled the streets of Oslo to maximum capacity, and then some.The summer sun shone at full strength from a perfectly blue sky  and more than one speaker on the parade vehicles must have been blasted to smithereens -- my ears is still tingling hours later.

I had just a small V1 in my handbag, but did capture a few shots.

Went looking for ospreys yesterday. Found lots of birds, but the sky was bad, fog early, then bright overcast. I took 2300 images for practice tracking bif, but really none of them are useable as the exposure compensation required to bring out the detail in the feathers completely blew out the background.  Any suggestions as to how to handle that shooting situation better? Afterwards, I checked out the melon fields I found last week to see if the swallowtail kites were congregating there, still no kites. I’ve seen isolated individuals, so I know they are in the area, but they aren’t massing over the melon fields yet. Interesting info on their migration pattern here:
