Fit for a King

In this modern era of digital photography any idiot can take a half decent photo, this blog occasionally proves that.  It is the snap first, ID later generation.  So with so many people interested in taking nature photos, should we provide more and better opportunities for the stunning shot?  The floating hide in Båtsfjord harbor operated by Ørjan Hansen (Arctic Touristdoes just that.  Flat on your stomach at water level, in a nice orange floatation suit, in temperatures of around -5 C, you are surrounded by King Eiders, Steller's Eiders, Common Eiders and Long-tailed Ducks.  But not only is this a great photography hide, this is close-up, exhilarating wildlife.
