Stunning images of an a lion that did not deserve to die. Do not support these ridiculous game hunts in Africa. If you haven't been to Africa make the trip and take pictures of these animals, it will change your life. Hang a photo on the wall, not a stuffed head.

Just awesome David

Hi everyone, just overnighting in Whitehorse, Yukon in between bear trips and wanted to share this very special image. This is a grizzly bear mother nursing her one and a half year old cubs on the shores of Cook Inlet in Alaska. This is something that that I feel very lucky to have witnessed and photograph, an experience that I will never forget.___Just awesome David

This bird is nothing but brilliant, able to use her surroundings to her advantage. She's a huge bird, making her way home to the north. Obviously her size is a good indicator of her ability to find a food source for herself. She's so smart she even washes her food before she eats it.

Mermaid rises from the deep
Ok so I over wrote the title, but in reality seeing a Snowy Owl picking its prey out of a thawing ditch is probably a lot like seeing a mermaid.

This girl floored me yet again, you never ever hear an owl flying so you have to see them take off from their perch or ground to know they are anywhere at all. I wasn't paying a lot of attention and I heard bit of water splash, looked quick and to my amazement there she was, picking a critter out of the drink.

The Return of the fishing Owl - Mermaid by Vince Maidens

The girl I've been waiting to see for two years has finally returned. I was worried she had died or went to a different location but she's back got a tremendous amount of images of her "fishing" yesterday from different blinds up close and personal.

Very exciting

I took a day off from posting, hate to inundate everyday with images of even these majestic creatures.

They are on their way back north now, saw a lot of them the past few days where we've had a pretty static number.

BTW, he was banking left not white...

You can't see the meal he's carrying in his talons, but rest assured he has a very large meaty vole in his grip.

This guy is probably the fastest Snowy Owl I've ever encountered, literally have seconds to react when you see him lift off.

Sitting with binoculars watching him launch and switching to camera gear is exciting.

Awkward Landing by Vince Maidens

For a bird that is so singularly purposed, they certainly look disinterested in whatever feat of flying they are pulling off at the moment. A strong freezing gust of wind blew in at this male as he was coming in to land and eat a vole. Nearly blew him off course.

It did not however, he was fine, a huge over stuff vole was not.

A lone White Rhino alone on the savannah. Not really alone there were a bunch around, it just reminds me that these amazing creatures are dwindling due to some crazy notion that their horns are magical.

This pair of brothers laying on a small hill by the water with their back towards the bush.

They were there a long time (sadly in noon sun) and all of a sudden they air scented something and picked up and took off. Likely another predator, the walked very quickly through trees and bush and were very hard to track. Disappeared after a few mins and we didn't see them again that day.

So here we have 2 male White Rhino's, one is the older dominant male and the one on the right is the young up in comer. 

The dominant male was quite far away, saw the blur of our LandCruiser and decided to come closer to take a look. The younger Rhino decided he was too close and figured he'd make a try for the territory. The sound the horns make when they bang them together is pretty loud, hollow sounding, very hard to explain. You'd also expect there to be some serious violence with a clash like this....surprisingly there isn't.

They posture and knock horns for hours and then try to tip each other over. I saw no evidence of any real nasty fights but I suspect there could easily be.

This went on for hours. Light was awesome too.

So there are a few things about Florida I've learned over the past short while.

First, Sandhill Cranes are plentiful and pretty patient. I did not need 600mm's today.

Second, and this one is unpleasant, fire ants suck.

Third, Ammonia really helps with fire ant stings :)

Hey folks

Anyone know the Cancun, MX area well enough to point a guy to a good birding area that I could shoot for the day? Was thinking The ruins but not sure.

I've always wanted to see Chichen Itza, and hope there is some decent birding as well.

Going soon, second week of November.

Thanks!

What an outrage, these animals have it hard enough with humans encroaching on their world, let alone going in and actively depleting already over stressed numbers. If the African nations don't ban this hunting there will be little reason for outsiders to come and visit.

Short term thinking about long term disaster. 

Is big game hunting in Africa REALLY adding to conservation efforts??
This is NOT my photo, nor do I endorse this practice!

PLEASE RESHARE SO PEOPLE CAN SEE AND READ THIS!

The Dallas Safari Club posted this one on their website and Facebook pages earlier this week, and it caused a veritable crapstorm on there...
You can view the original here: http://gametrails.org/trophy-pic-cliff-walkers-leopard-of-three/

Hunters always talk big about how hunting adds to (and is a vital part of) conservation efforts in a world that's giving more space to humans and less to wildlife. Here are a few things to consider about the photo you see here:

1. Leopards have HUGE ranges. Killing not one, but 3 (yes, THREE) male leopards in prime condition in a single concession area is as good as dealing a horrific mortal blow to the genetic diversity and sustainable reproduction of the leopards of the area.

2. There is no way you could legally get permits for shooting 3 leopards like this in one day in one area.

3. There is no way you would locate these leopards except by bait-and-switch...luring them with raw meat in a death-trap.

4. This was done in Zambia, a country that now has outlawed the hunting of big cats (like Botswana). When this photo was taken is unclear though.

5. The guy on our far right is called Doug Scandrol, and he has actually been banned from the Dallas Safari Club for life due to (unrelated to this) unethical hunting practices. So why do they boast with this photo on their website??

6. Bear in mind that these kinds of hunters want trophies...not sick and old animals. Killing the prime specimens of the population is severely thinning out the gene pool.

What are your thoughts?
I am outraged at the way Africa's iconic big animals (lions, leopards, elephants) are being killed for sports and for an ego-kick! With the challenge that these big cats already face in terms of genetic diversity...what good does this do? ?

Please share this around so the world can see what big game hunters are doing in the name of responsible consumptive tourism.

PS: I grew up hunting for the pot. I have NO problem with shooting deer or antelope and eating the meat. I have a BIG problem with killing apex predators with dwindling numbers and ranges just because you want to feel like a bad@$$ mofo...

Two baby Great Horned Owl brothers. Amazing how cute they are at this age and yet still have totally lethal talons.

I know these guys, it'll be a heck of a tour. Its almost a guarantee to get into a few hundred Eagles.

Len Silvester and I are leading a bald eagle #phototour in BC to photograph the thousands of migrating bald eagles on the Harrison and Fraser River... only a few spots remain. See here for details. http://northof49photography.com/photo-tours/___I know these guys, it'll be a heck of a tour. Its almost a guarantee to get into a few hundred Eagles.

Hey Folks, been a while since I've been able to get out shooting so I figured I'd share something I hadn't in the past..

A pair of Great Grey Owls from this past winter.

A lovely Great Horned Owl from the Canadian Raptor Conservancy .
I would have loved to not have had its wings blurred by the weeds but what are you going to do? He dropped so low from the perch that it was a real challenge to shoot.

Check out what Andy Rouse has to say about the new and ever so expensive Canon 200-400 L Lens. I do want one...but the price. If Canon wants a tester I will sign up :)

I really like Barn Owls, in Canada we don't see them much at all anymore.

This is a captive bird exceptionally well cared for at the Canadian Raptor Conservancy.

I took a lot of images of this bird, was really trying to work with the 1DX on a fast incoming object.

Haven't been posting much lately as work life has been trumping any hobby life. That said, this weekend I'm taking a break and heading out to shoot some captive raptors for The Canadian Raptor Conservancy, should be a good time on Saturday. Hopefully some images worth sharing when I get home!

Really loving the 1DX. I never, and I mean never (until now so not never? :), post images SOOC without any editing, noise cleaned up etc. This time I had to. The MK IV is a great body, it managed to produce some very decent high ISO images for me over the years, it also took a lot more effort to get those images in a useable form.

The 1DX is in a different league. These images have only been cropped.

1/1600th
f2.8 (due to necessity)
ISO 12,800.

Not too bad for no NR.
