Landing by Modernmyth6277
Landing
This is an old photo. A veeeeery old photo if you ask me, from 2007, the year I got my first DSLR camera. This photo has a very special meaning for me.. and it also has a special story (yeyyyy, Mari's storytime). Like I said, this was in 2007. Me and dad were 'testing' dad's old 300 mm. It was the first time for me, using a lens that big. And heavy (we're talking about a 15 y.o lens here). It was hard to keep your hands steady. At the end of the day, I got this pic. I was really proud since I had very little experience at the time. Then I noticed a man walking our way. I recognized him: it was Pekka Komi himself! (if you do not know who Pekka Komi is, shame yourself. Jk, he's one of the most famous bird and nature photographers in Finland. For example, this is one of his photos, you might have seen it somewhere.) My dad's a birdwatcher so he knows Komi. They started chatting and after a while my dad told him this was my first time using a 300 mm. Komi asked me if I could show him some of the pics I had gotten that day. When he saw this photo he told me it was a good one and that he really liked it. Knowing who he was, I almost exploded from pride :D

Forest spirit by Modernmyth6277
Forest spirit
Okay, so there's a rather cool story behind this photo: Few months ago, me and my dad were birdwatching at Porkkala. While walking in a forest, we got separated. I didn't really mind since I know the place pretty well. After a while I stopped to change my camera settings and when I lifted my head, I saw a stunning white-tailed deer stag standing about 12 m. away from me, staring right into my eyes.

My first thought was that he's gonna instantly sprint away, but guess what happened? The stag actually started to slowly and majestically walk towards me, until it stood only about 5 m. away from me. I was stunned, my mouth hanging open, trying to take as many photos as fast as possible. I was thinking feverishly "why isn't he running away?" I'm no animal expert but to me, he didn't look frightened or aggressive, only slightly curious. The stag just kept staring at me, moving it's ears and tilting its head from side to side.

The staring competition lasted about 2 minutes and then the stag just turned left and continued his morning walk. After he was another 10 m. away, he stopped, turned to stare at me one last time, then disappeared to the forest.

This wasn't some tame city deer, this was a wild animal, in a nature reserve area, which made the experience so special, at least for me.

EDIT: aaaaaaaaa thank you so much to everyone for all the favs!!

Drogon
Drogon from Game of Thrones as I remember him (meaning I didn't use a model so he doesn't look 100% accurate :P ). I wish I could've made him look a bit meaner :D
