Red berries are the best

The blackbirds (Turdus merula) like the berries of hawthorns (Crataegus). I photographed this young male in Hietaniemi cemetery in Helsinki, October 2010.


Hietaniemi is a great place to follow the half-tame squirrels, but this time I had a good position to follow this nice bird. – It did not take too long to see it flying away, a berry in the beak. I almost missed this BIF shot.
