Had no idea that Polar Bears did aerobics !

Hi Sporgon, it does have that look doesn't it, followed this Guy for a couple hours as he swam, moved onto Islands, swam again always in a Northerly direction, these Bears have amazing purpose, Guide onboard mentioned the longest recorded swim for a Polar Bear was 700 Kilometres (The Female Bear had a collar), that's a heck of a swim.

I've never experienced Black/Brown/Grizzly Bears in the Wild (On my List for 2014), and this was my first experience of Polar bears up close, I was intrigued by their silence, not a sound from these Bears, the only sound in the 16 Days I heard from these Bears, was when they "shook" off the water after coming out of the Sea onto dry Land, I couldn't help imagining they would probably eat you quietly as well.

This looks like the 200 L. Wonderful mood in this one.

Thanks!  The 200 L is a gem but this one was shot with a 600.

Edward, your wildlife shots are just outstanding!  You must be having a lot of fun traveling about the world, observing wildlife in settings and places many of us only dream of.  Things that are often not portrayed directly in the photograph are the environmental condition of temperature, wind speed, humidity, smells, or just how much effort was applied to get to the location and in position for the shot.  It's nice to hear some of your travel experiences that provide some appreciation of the effort.   I always look forward to viewing your images.

:)Relaxing before departure .................

Shooter, wonderful images of the aircraft in flight.  They are beautiful works of art!  Makes me want to go flying again.  You have been blessed with very unique opportunities to photograph planes in flight.

Some of us are going through withdraw from not seeing Gary Samples eagle photos lately, so I thought I'd post some images taken this spring.  The interaction between the herons and the eagles was really fun to watch, but I'm sure the herons did not enjoy the eagles attempts to steal their fish.  Sometimes the heron would put the fish underwater to protect it, but sometimes they just dropped it.  The eagles would rather steal than catch their own.

Gary, miss seeing your shots.

Thanks Northstar.  Yes, I use a Wimberley head on a Gitzo tripod.  Even though the EF 600mm f/4.0 II is rather light, it's too heavy for me to handhold for hours.  With all the action, I may be following an eagle in flight for several minutes at a time.
