I have always been fascinated with wolf’s , and nature in general. (I guess that is why I have tattooed wolf, bear and other predators on my back…), and after three weeks in the nature of Canada I am truly facinated . One of the stories that I wanted to share is a visit to a wolf sanctuary in Golden in British Colombia. A very nice place, and I met amongst other this big Alfa.
And this big beautiful female.
They where rescued , and lived there live in the park raising awareness about wolf, and the need for preservation. They also was used in some movies , and they featured in a movie about what happened in Yellowstone, when they reintroduced wolf’s there. If you have not seen the move, I highly recommend it. You find it here.
I am in Boston, what to do…. I have a plan of taking pictures of animals on this trip, so I have spent my day on a whale cruise outside Boston, and here I met this “little” fellow, a Finn whale, the second largest creature that have ever roamed this very earth. Quite impressive.
I have been fortunate enough that the town where I live have had a visit of a small pack of Orcas (Killer whales) for 5 days now, and as a nature lover, it is a fantastic feeling to watch these creatures up close and personal. I was out last night, and here are some of the pack doing there thing.
They are very playfull…
And they liked showing of a bit….
Amazing creatures…. And I wonder how long they will stay before they move to there next location…
I was out in the nearby woods here in Northern Norway today, and came over this little fellow. A roe deer that was sitting in the fields.
After a little while a couple of small ears emerged , and I realised that this was a little young one.
And after a little while observing them. They went on their way in the nice settling sun.
Nature at its very best 🙂
A couple of seagulls where out and about, when I was doing a little camping earlier this week. They sneak up on you are quite assertive when they see an oportunity, and go for the strike.
This is the moose (or elk) , and the king of the forest. Majestic animals, and quite nice to look at . Just remember to keep the distance, they are large, fast and extremely powerful.
This is one from the archive. Shot outside my parents hometown on the western part of Norway about a year ago. Unlike in my hometown where elk (moose) and venison are plentiful. There are deer that are the name of “game” on those parts of Norway. I think they look quite stunning.
This image is from South Georgia, it is a young penguin that is loosing its brown furry coat, and getting the normal fur and colours. I was a little scared at first, but the biologist at the trip explained that it was all for the best, and you cold compare the hardships with a kind of bad flu. But after a while they are the great creatures that we enjoy so much.
This is the old , retired whaling station of Grytviken, South Georgia. I guess this was the largest, and most efficient of the old stations down here. It was left in the fifties, and it serves here as a great piece of history. The picture shows only a small part of the operation, but you get a little image of the massive scale of the operation.
Another one from my trip to Antarctica. Todays image is from the Antarctic peninsula, and a pack of penguins where enjoying the sun.
