We always love our time with the bears and this year was no different. One of the benefits to spending a long chunk of time in one place is getting to know the animals we are photographing, including this beautiful family. We mentioned in a previous post how closely cubs will watch their mom and try to mimic her behavior. Here is a perfect example. After grazing on sedges on a nearby flat, mom gave the signal she was on the move. The three little ones quickly ran after her and they all made their way to the edge of the river. At first the cubs began to play and fight on the sand but once they saw that mom was going for a drink they all followed. Here you can see all three of them doing their best impression of their mom. "We're big bears too!"

The bear family wander in the serene swampland, as a mist begins to form. Beautiful reflections like this are special conditions that help to make this area of Finland an incredibly special place to immerse yourself in nature 🐻
I came across a Fox caught in a leg Trap. I sat with him for a few minutes and he seemed to sense that I wasn't the asshat who had set the traps and was gonna bash his brains out. I then ran up the hill to the house, grabbed a pair of thick, leather fireplace gloves, my closed-face motorcycle helmet, a couple of hotdogs and returned to the scene of the crime. Slowly putting on the helmet and gloves as he watched, I gave him the hotdogs and reached for the trap. Although it took a couple of tries, the first one resulting in a firm bite to my hand, I was able to free the Fox. He instantly bolted but appeared to be ok and I didn't see any blood on the trap so I was hopeful. I then gathered up about half a dozen traps, all set near the pond, and tossed each of them Far INTO the water. Hunters of ANY type absolutely Suck......but #trappers are the lowest of the low. Thanks to Christina for this wonderful #photograh ❤️ #repost from @luv_r_of_life

When I arrived in brisbane I headed to the sunshine coast. When I got there I met this little but big guy! Yes he's a pet but I couldn't give up the chance to photograph him(Patrick) and the opportunity to share some conservation facts about this beautiful creature.
So here it is
The Scarlet Macaw or (Ara macao) is a large, very colourful parrot that lives in the tropical humid environments of the Amazon Rainforest.
A typical sighting is of a single Scarlet Macaw or a pair of Scarlet Macaws flying above the forest canopy, though in some areas flocks can be seen. These magnificent birds can fly at speeds up to 35 miles per hour (56 kilometres per hour) and have a life span of about 80 years.
Scarlet Macaws are an endangered species due to their capture as pets and loss of habitat.
