Dragonfly in flight


Dragonfly in flight

My best attempt so far at capturing a dragonfly in flight. Not perfectly sharp, but hey, it’s hard!

Bewick’s Wren


Bewick's Wren

This Bewick’s Wren was spotted in the Big Morongo Canyon Preserve, near Palm Springs, CA. I don’t think I had seen one before this trip, and it took me a while to identify him once we got home. I might have guessed Carolina wren if not for the location.

Smelling the light


Polar Bear - Wildlife photography course

This photograph was created with the Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM lens (Canon 600mm f/4 L IS II USM review), the Canon EOS 5D mark III, handheld while seating on the ground. Have a look at the equipment I typically carry with me.

The photograph above was created around the West shore of the Hudson Bay, in Canada. Does not it look like this Polar Bear is smelling the light? After feasting on berries on the ground, this bear started to rise and point its nose up to smell its next adventure around sunset time. Note that in back-lit situations such as this one, it is usually best to create a silhouette type photograph. To do so, one needs to underexpose by a couple of stops, and adjusting the curves in Photoshop also gives a bit of help.

I invite you to have a peek at the Bird & Wildlife Photography website to see other beautiful image creations.

Polar Bear photography tour video in Canada


I put this short video together to share memories from my last Polar Bear photography tour in Canada, close to Churchill. Have a look and I hope you will like it. The video features some of my favorite images from the trip, as well as a couple of videos. One video displays two male Polar Bears in a mock fight!

I invite you to have a look at the Bird & Wildlife Photography website as well!
