Kamchatka brown bear running – It seems to me that you’re liking the bear images so here’s another, this time of a bear who I’ve actually mentioned in previous posts. This bear ultimately became my favourite individual from the whole trip because he was the epitome of cool assurance and total confidence. He had an imperious walk and he would stride confidently through the river occasionally diving on the odd, unfortunate salmon. His other passion was to glide ever closer and closer to us people, sauntering casually by, usually so close that I would have to rise from my prostrate position, if only so that on my knees I was at least up to his shoulders. On one occasion when I was photographing him on just my 200-400mm lens I had already zoomed out to 200mm but still I could see nothing but bear. So consumed was I with photography that I hadn’t paid attention to his close approach and when I did finally look up my instinct was simply to lean away from the camera as he passed just a few feet away. In this moment however he was emerging from the lake and so, rather than indiscriminately fire the shutter in some random scattergun approach I would instead simply fire small bursts whenever I could see his paw leave the water. Their massive feet are so often the anchor point for an image and those that contain them, such as this one are always head and shoulders above the images that don’t. If nothing else it gives one a salient reminder of why these creatures, these true omnivores, are so biologically designed to do what they do. There is not a fish in that lake that’s going to survive being swiped by that massive paw. Though we only ended up naming just a few bears we decided that because this bear obviously had so much that his name would have to be…Swag!

Land or water, you are not safe! Great photo by @brookimage
3.5 years ago I got to know Hadez... and his crazy (aren't we all a bit crazy?) human Frank.
Usually I get a lot of messages where people ask to meet up with Ninja and me, but never really follow through. Frank's message started as the typical request. "Ninja is beautiful... bla bla.. I want to get a puppy of Ninja & Jade... I want to meet the father of Hadez... even better why don't you come and visit us in Switzerland?"
.
It was a lot to handle for me at first... the invitation to another country, etc... Frank stayed persistent and did not give up and seemed to really really want to meet... so I called the breeder of Hadez (no she is not on Instagram afaik) and checked out if he really was interested in a puppy and if he'd get one... she confirmed and said "I am certain you would like each other."
Hmh... this sounded intriguing and I decided to throw all doubt overboard and to pull through with it. Visiting Frank seemed out of the question. But as he would have to pass  passing Mainz to pick up Hadez I offered to join him ( I am sooo generous! 😁) and drive the car as I knew the roads really good.
From the first moment on we had a great time... I was so relieved... we have a similar humor... and were laughing most of the trip.
.
I am glad that I agreed to meet Frank. Over these years he became a close friend. These are hard to find, especially since I am not an easy person.
This is what this picture reminds me of... the friendship not only of the dogs but also their humans.
.
Thank You Frank for Your friendship.

Great Horned Owl Portrait
Photographing this owl indoors allowed for unique backdrops including the black muslin behind this guy, but also raised the heat to mid summer levels in early June. The flight sessions were short due to this, to protect the birds, but made for some awesome portraits, with some great expressions. Owls will often open their mouths and pant to help keep their body temperatures down in the summer, which is what this GHO is doing to keep cool in this image.

My heart sped up the closer she approached our Jeep. Soon she was so close that she was under my minimum focusing distance. A great excitement rushed over me and for that brief moment I’d forgotten that there is no barricade between me and this apex predator. It was left to mutual respect and I was truly on my best behavior. ____________________________________________________

What a funky sighting we had One late morning in the Kruger national park. As stopped at a sighting of a small zebra herd of about three adults and two fouls, when I looked closer at these two zebras their manes looked like mowhawks! Just shows that it’s the little things that count!

最近赤ちゃんザルたちが木に登ろうとする様子をよく見かけますが、その木が登れる木かどうかの判断はまだできないよう。細過ぎる木に登ろうとしては、この写真のように倒れてしまいます。

ーPhoto tipsー
産まれてしばらくは母ザルに抱かれているばかりで、ポートレートぐらいしか撮りようのなかった赤ちゃんザルも、1人歩きを始めると一気に撮影のバリエーションが増えてきます。
しかし、そんな1人歩きする赤ちゃんザルは“小さく、速く、不規則”に動くため撮影するには少々厄介。まだ体が上手く扱えないので、ただ歩くだけでも“ピョコピョコ”動きます。
ただし、1つひとつの動きは捉え辛いものの、よく観察してみると全体としてパターンがあり、“目線”からそのパターンがある程度予測できることが分かります。まだ幼く好奇心旺盛が故に単純、かつ大人のサルより体や顔に対して目の比率の大きく、目線が分かりやすい赤ちゃんザルならではの方法ですが、次に何が起きるのか分かっていれば幾分撮影がしやすくなるはずです。
そのパターンには様々なものがありますが、例としては、以下のようなものがあります。

①“少し離れた場所にいる母ザルや、同じ歳か、1、2歳年上のサルなど”に注目したり、目で追う→駆け寄って行く
②“木の葉や爪楊枝程度の細い枝、小石など”に注目する→掴んだり、咥えたりする

③“1、2m程度の小さな木”に注目する→その木に登ろうとする

実際に撮影してみると分かりますが、これらは“少なからずそうなる”程度のパターンながら、可能性を踏まえているだけで結果物は大きく違ってくると思います。また、“初動”の予測がつけばその後の予測も可能な場合もあり、例えば③の状況では、登ろうとする木によって更に以下のような予測ができます。

④赤ちゃんザルの体重を支えられない太さ、樹形の木→木が倒れる
⑤赤ちゃんザルの体重を支えられて、かつ赤ちゃんザルが掴める太さの木→ある程度登れる
⑥赤ちゃんザルの体重は支えられるが、赤ちゃんザルが掴めない太さの木→少しだけ登れる

今回投稿した写真も正に④のケース。事前に倒れることはもちろん、樹形から倒れる方向も分かっていたので、構図やフォーカスポイントを移動させて撮影することができました。

今回いくつかのパターンを挙げさせていただきましたが、他にも予測できる挙動は多くあります。先述したとおり、予測がつくだけで撮影がしやすくなると思いますので、是非お試しください。
