Back in the days of the civilized, polite and diplomatic Vikings (!), we were rich conquerors.

I'm reasonably sure the People that live South of Norway much prefer Today's Norwegians, than the Lads from 300 to 500 years ago.

Snow leopard, 5D3, 100-400L @ 400mm, handheld, ambient light, ISO 2000. Through a wire fence at the San Francisco zoo.

Two Animals I will Photograph, I hope, over the next 2 years in the Wild, Snow Leopard & Jaguar.

Beautiful, Beautiful animal.

I'd like to post and contribute to this thread. One question I have not found and answer to with the software is how to upload photos. Help. :(

Welcome to CR.

Use something that you generally process your Image in, Light Room, DXO, Photo Shop etc, loads of software available to do this.

If you started with RAW, convert to jpeg, small size, get the Image under 500Kbs, needs to be in sRGB colour format to show best on CR/Web.

Click "Reply" at the bottom of a comment/page in CR, Make your comments, then attach your Image as an attachment, Hit Save, done.

Look forward to seeing your Images

That would not be a very nice thing to do. Just inbox me and I come to collect it. Will give you a non grip camera in exchange.

I think the line at this Lads front door is going to be reasonably long.

Very Funny Sanj.

My wife and I were even closer to the mountain gorillas in Parc National des Volcans in Rwanda…and not inside a Land Rover.  :)

I'de say your head was fortunately placed otherwise this Image would have been 'R' rated and not for CR consumption.

Haven't done this, hope to before I can't, your very fortunate to have been able to do it before it's something we won't be able to do at all, well done.

Well said, and welcome to CR! Some very disappointing responses happening here. Photography should not be pigeonholed.

I agree, welcome to CR, and it's a pity "bosshog" felt it necessary to be as critical in his own post (of critical Posts) as others have been about the original subject, I guess that's Photography to some, very emotive.

Wether we "Like" or "dislike" the work in question, we really should respect the Lads ability, he is doing some very interesting work, sort of Salvador Dali esqe, which has an audience, maybe not on CR, but Salvador Dali sold Paintings, this Lad will almost certainly find a Market as he progresses in experience & ability, I wish him all the very best.

Arctic fox or Mountain fox or Snow fox or ... many names on this fellow. An endangered species on main land Norway, but this fellow is a result of a breeding station on Dovre, where they have successfully returned a number of foxes to the wild. Beautiful little animal.

Lovely Image Eldar, we tried to shoot some of these on the Svalbard trip, they were a lot darker than this Guy so I guess it was a different variant. You seem to have a few of these endangered animals where you are located, such a wonderful experience when your able to Photograph something like this, or the Lynx.

We ran into a few people from Norway up in Svalbard (as it's part of Norway not unexpected), I was surprised that the Norwegians are such very keen hunters, it wasn't something I had ever considered when thinking about Norway, but it is surely one of the most Beautiful places I've seen, I hope to see more of the Country at some point.

Finally, what I appreciate even more than your photos is your attitude. ;)

Hi Jack, Sounds like we share a few things in common, age, a love for Photography & a reasonable attitude, I think the attitude comes with the first thing I mentioned.

I enjoy checking the latest on the 6D gallery as well, there's some amazing Images being posted there from yourself, Dustin, Chuck, Serendipidy, Captain Kanji etc etc, this Gallery convinced me to change out my youngest Lads D5100 with the 6D, lot's of story on the Cameras Pros & Cons, but the 6D Gallery shows just what can be achieved with this Camera.

An English friend of mine just returned from the Pantanal in Brazil, his Images certainly gave me a push to get down there as soon as i can.

And i don't speak Spanish also, Hell, I'm an Aussie, we battle with English.

Edward, that is a brilliant picture ! In fact I'd say the best you have posted. Like Lemmy's picture of the surfer this one is as good as it gets.

Thanks Sporgon, appreciated.

ehh i felt it a bit weird to enter the "best animal shots" thread and then saw a photo of 3 dark skin kids :P

Gets worse SandyMandy, shot with a Nikon D3x during one of my flirtations with the Dark Side.

It seems like a bear

Alex, that's just too funny, nice Image as well, but honestly I'm still laughing.

That is one fat cat.

The previous Image was the Male Leopard version of Eye Contact, this ones the Female version of the same thing, note the subtle differences.
You have to publish a book! I hereby sign up for 10 copies.

Thanks Eldar, we all share the same enjoyment, mostly, we all seem to love the journey that Photography lends to us.

Edward, you know all about eye contact!  Are you generally in a safe environment when such contact is taking place? 

Different thought - do you/ have you, shot in South America?

Jack

Hi Jack, I would love to, and hope to in the next couple of Years, Jaguars, definitely want to get to South America and shoot these Guys, there's a few places now where they have begun to habituate similar to Londolozi & Mala Mala in South Africa, still Wild, still in their environment, but protected within an area and used to People in vehicles.

Most, not all, but most of my Safari Images are from a vehicle, I generally have my own so I can go where I want when I want, plus my own Guide. I've had a few scares mostly with Female Leopards with young Cubs, we try to keep a respectable distance, less about being concerned for our safety, more to ensure the Cubs don't get stressed. Had a wildebeest try to climb into the vehicle late one afternoon when we were shooting along a fire that had started from Lightning strikes, wildebeest are bit like sheep, not so bright.

The attached is more my own Backyard shooting, Kids Diving down to watch us shooting under a Jetty, Raja Empat Papua Indonesia.

Although I've Posted this Image before, I thought it reasonably fits the current discussion "Eye Contact".

Preferably Not in the backyard.
