There is something destructive, in my mind, about showing kids stories of bears eating porridge, wearing aprons and baking bread. Then one sees these Aussie and South African game "experts" that mess with wild anmals like they were tricky, but you can deal with them is you are reasonably careful.
Well that is all nonsense. It's bad for the bears and bad for us!
That beat in the snow is magnificent! I have the greatest admiration for wild animals like that. No one is there to give them first aid or to provide food they don't catch. I love to admire them. Just that.
Sorry to get serious, but with the melting of the ice caps, bears are being stranded on eice flows. Penguin colonies have died that way.
Anyway, I love these pictures. The second has a wonderful bokeh. The last is magnificent. That should sell! I can see that as a large print, Magnificent.
So tell us where each was taken and how. There must be a story with each one!
The bear impresses me but in final thoughts, the last one, with the golden light on the neck of the bird is definately the best picture. The bear, white on white is technically harder to shoot and even harder to print.
The bird landing is however, just perfect!
