Pöllö – The owl

The owl, Tampere 2022

An owl has arrived and stays at the Arboretum here in Tampere.

Its favourite spot is the tip of the spruce in the photo.

Photographers with long telephoto lenses are stationed nearby, waiting to capture the right moment. They wear thick winter clothes. It is -10C and windy these days. This means that the felt temperature, especially at the Arboretum, next to the lake, can be anything between -15C and -18C.

The owl (pöllö in Finnish) does not seem to be bothered by any of this.
