Just chillin' out! Taken in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada


Thank you for looking at my photostream and for your kind comments.

Near contact with a bear from long distance.. with my 150-600mm lens..

Female coastal brown bear down at the salmon stream fishing for salmon. Due to the fact that we were not allowed to get too close to the bears we were photographing, we could not get close enough to actually see the bear in the stream, just the upper half of her body which could be seen above the stream embankment.

Also known as a spectacled bear.

Georgina on the right tries to convince a larger male that the fishing area is hers. She puts up a good front, gets a bite or two in then, inevitably she would get a back of the paw swat. We did notice during most bear disputes they did not use claws to intentionally injure each other.

This is uncropped! Not the best shot because of bright sun but I love the bears expression.

I will be on and off Flickr today because I have places to go and things to do! Have a great day all!

Three year old Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) having a drink near the delta area along the shores of the K'tzim-a-deen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary in the Khutzeymateen Inlet along the west coast north of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada.


The inlet is about a 30 minute flight by float plane, north of Prince Rupert. The tour of 6 wildlife photographers (including myself) was 5 days long and run by Ocean Light II Adventures. We stayed at the entrance of the reserve in a 72 ft sail boat (Ocean Light II) and accessed the reserve daily in a 19 ft Zodiac and spent most of the day looking for grizzly bear activity.

For Gini... yeah, I finally saw a bear today.

Actually I don't think the Formosan bear was too happy about being under 35 degrees plus in a very humid, hot summer day...., and in the zoo!!

Brown Bear aka Grizzly


Although this picture seems to be quite similar to the one I uploaded some days ago, I think it differs in the face expression of the bear. He looks a bit more thoughtfully, maybe even sad.

Bay, (Oct) and are play attacking seals. Churchill, Manitoba


The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is a carnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses. It is a large bear, approximately the same size as the omnivorous Kodiak bear. A boar (adult male) weighs around 350–700 kg (772–1,543 lb), while a sow (adult female) is about half that size. Although it is the sister species of the brown bear, it has evolved to occupy a narrower ecological niche, with many body characteristics adapted for cold temperatures, for moving across snow, ice, and open water, and for hunting the seals, which make up most of its diet. Although most polar bears are born on land, they spend most of their time at sea. Their scientific name means "maritime bear", and derives from this fact. Polar bears hunt their preferred food of seals from the edge of sea ice, often living off fat reserves when no sea ice is present.

Happy and Healthy New Year everyone !

Fijne jaarwisseling allemaal!

2 of the black bears at ZooAmerica. Murphy is the cinnamon black bear & Chief in the water. Per their website Murphy had become dependent on being fed by humans in the Montana wild & due to becoming accustomed to humans could not be safely returned to the wild. Chief was found malnourished & was believed to possibly have been an illegal pet before before released. Also per their website black bears are the only bears found exclusively on the North American continent and has a more diverse range than the brown or polar bears of North America.

A little polar bear family. That's definitely one big yawn!


Have you ever wanted to see polar bears in the wild? Now is your chance! I have spots open for my fall 2014 photo tour in Kaktovik, Alaska where we'll be photographing polar bears and watching for the Northern Lights. Visit for more info.

If you view this photo in original size. There is a impressive amount of detail around the face the eyes, facial hair even the white drool on its lip which I think is whats left of breakfast. I hope it was no one I knew.

Grizzly Bear (Ursus arctos horribilis) wandering the shoreline of the K'tzim-a-deen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary north of Prince Rupert along the maritime coast of British Columbia, Canada.


It is breeding season and both the males and females are wandering the coast in search of a prospective mate.

After numerous trips to the Pittsburgh zoo since the opening of the Polar Bear exhibit, I was finally able to get a photo of a polar bear swimming.

The original photo of the polar bear was taken at our local zoo. I love to visit the polar bears but it always makes me sad to see them in captivity. You can tell by their behaviour that they don't feel happy in the zoo although they were born in captivity and have never known anything else.

A young Polar Bear Boar rests on a small barrier island near Barter Island in ANWR during a warm early September afternoon. He's waiting for cooler temps and night fall to go hunting for dinner.

And it's pretty amazing to see

You don't believe, but these bears are living wild.

We were locked in a box instead ,while taking the pictures. This is the right way.

This Brown Bear was born in Everland zoo in March.5 2009

He can walk and run. He tries to jump to capture bread.


The photo was taken in a zoo (Warsaw) - not in Bieszczady, but a bear is the symbol of this wild region. It is also the result of my learning Photoshop (I decided, that the background is not interesting and tried to do texture background).


Thx for all your comments:) I'm really suprised:)


Zdjęcie zostało zrobione w warszawskim zoo, nie w Bieszczach, ale otagowałem je jako bieszczadzkie, bo niedźwiedź brunatny to jeden z ważniejszych symboli Bieszczad:) Na tym zdjęciu uczyłem się Photoshopa przy okazji, a dokładniej teksturowania w Photoshopie:)

Aurora and Nikita share secrets - probably having to do with Inukshuk. Or so he's hoping.
