I live in the countryside some 40 km outside of Stockholm, capital of Sweden.
I started out as a birder in the mid '80s. In 2003 I realized that I needed to be able to photodocument my findings so I began to digiscope (taking photos by attaching a camera to the spottingscope). For documentary purposes it was often enough, but for photography I was never able to get the results I wanted so after a couple of years I upgraded to a DSLR and was hooked. So for the last few years my interest has slowly shifted from birdwatching to birdphotography.
With the arrival of kids the possibilities for serious birdwatching/birdphotography has been severly reduced. To still be able to use the cameras I've started experimenting with macrophotography since it can be done in my own garden.
