On these pages I have put some pictures from my stay in the USA in 2001-2002. One of my Dr. scient. supervisors at NTNU arranged for me to stay as a postdoc for one year at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. The Baltimore page shows some pictures from this city located next to the Chesapeake Bay north of Washington DC. I visited many wildlife reserves in Maryland and along the East Coast region. Of special interest in the region for wildlife enthusiasts is the Atlantic horseshoe crab spawning which happens each spring in Delaware Bay. These living fossils are very fascinating, and also important for medical reasons. The yearly spawning attracts scores of shorebirds that depends on their nutritious eggs.
