[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I remember Ishi asking me a couple of months ago if I also have a sun-lit diver. Browsing through the pictures I found this one, of the same individual as the earlier picture. I was laying flat on the shrubs near a little pond for hours and slowly the diver became used to me. Until a drunken local idiot decide he had to dunk his head in the water right next to me an my camera scaring al the birds off with his drunken behaviour and three friends. To be fair, that was really the only "mis-behaving" of locals I've encountered during al the trip. In general Iceland people are great and they live in a beautiful country
