During the first half of the film, when Jete takes Sonja around the woods to photograph animals, the camera Jete uses keeps changing between shots between a Canon 6D and a Canon 7D Mark2. When Jete takes the photo of the Otter coming out of the lake, you can clearly see from the front that the camera is a Canon 6D, but when she reviews the photo from the back of the camera it is clearly a Canon 7D Mark2.

Pleasant nature-based non-religious December film
In spite of its mood, venue and timing, this film has no direct focus on Xmas, most of events take place after this and include New Year´s Eve... The events are realistic, contemporary, including some topics often depicted in (Estonian) media: intergenerational issues, nature preservation, forest economy and management...
The approach is educational, yet versatile and pleasant, through the eyes of an bright girl with her heart and mind in the right place... Performances and camerawork are good, beautiful landscape is clearly visible (hopefully nobody thinks that birds-animals were created using computer!) and at present, with no snow at all, it is pleasant to acknowledge that winters in Estonia tend to include lots of snow and whiteness.
