    Beautiful Helsinki

    These are all taken today. From Arabia (yes, that is a place in Helsinki).

    This little fella was really playful and curious about me. First I thought it was a lizard called "sisilisko" but it was this guy instead. It`s a small predator called kärppä (or lumikko) in finnish and it is a really rare sight (at least I think so). I don`t know anyone who would have seen it in the wild. It had a vast tunneling system under the ground and the ground was filled with exits... "(S)he let me really close but obviously didn`t want me to get a decent shot of him/herself. This was the best I could do.

    What's the weather like round there during summer? People seem to think 'it's north, it's cold', but what is it actually like?

    Looks like a ferret or a weasel, at least a small version of one. Shame the pic's quite so blurry.

    I like 2 and 4 most of all. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Sometimes the degrees can climb up to 30 degrees, especially in july. Last summer was very sunny and warm.
    Some summers have been really gloomy and chilly, average daytemp had been around 20.

    I didn`t know the translation for the animal.

    Thanks for comment.

    Edit: It really looks like a weasel... So that`s my guess.

    I like the second to last one a lot and the first second and third, I like the lines in them. THey carry the eye well.

    Don't forget for us americans those 20-30 degrees is in celsius Finland is so beautiful during the summer. My extended family has a lake house like 3-4 hrs north of Helsinki near the Russian boarder and its GORGEOUS. THe last time I was there I was just getting into photography and I wish I could go this summer. but alas no money.
