Stunning images of an a lion that did not deserve to die. Do not support these ridiculous game hunts in Africa. If you haven't been to Africa make the trip and take pictures of these animals, it will change your life. Hang a photo on the wall, not a stuffed head.

On the 1st of July, a beautiful 13 year old male lion was lured out of the safety of a national park in Zimbabwe and killed. His name was Cecil. This is a tribute to him.

After a 2 year wait my fishing female friend is back! Sitting out in the same field at the exact same day of the year yielded a site I never thought I'd see again. Totally out of character. Fantastic bird on her way north making the most out of her surrounds. She was the only bird exhibiting this behaviour.

I took a day off from posting, hate to inundate everyday with images of even these majestic creatures.

They are on their way back north now, saw a lot of them the past few days where we've had a pretty static number.

BTW, he was banking left not white...

Just awesome David
 
Hi everyone, just overnighting in Whitehorse, Yukon in between bear trips and wanted to share this very special image. This is a grizzly bear mother nursing her one and a half year old cubs on the shores of Cook Inlet in Alaska. This is something that that I feel very lucky to have witnessed and photograph, an experience that I will never forget.

This bird is nothing but brilliant, able to use her surroundings to her advantage. She's a huge bird, making her way home to the north. Obviously her size is a good indicator of her ability to find a food source for herself. She's so smart she even washes her food before she eats it.

Mermaid rises from the deep
Ok so I over wrote the title, but in reality seeing a Snowy Owl picking its prey out of a thawing ditch is probably a lot like seeing a mermaid.

This girl floored me yet again, you never ever hear an owl flying so you have to see them take off from their perch or ground to know they are anywhere at all. I wasn't paying a lot of attention and I heard bit of water splash, looked quick and to my amazement there she was, picking a critter out of the drink.

The Return of the fishing Owl - Mermaid by Vince Maidens

The girl I've been waiting to see for two years has finally returned. I was worried she had died or went to a different location but she's back got a tremendous amount of images of her "fishing" yesterday from different blinds up close and personal.

Very exciting

I've been waiting for this owl to come back for 2 years and she hadn't, each year around this time when the snow begins to melt and the owl migration north begins a lot of owls come through. So far over 50 in the past two days have come through and moved on. This bird, is special, she uses the water puddles to her advantage and picks off the voles that are flooded out of their hides. Nature is amazing. I'll post images of her "fishing" over the...

You can't see the meal he's carrying in his talons, but rest assured he has a very large meaty vole in his grip.

This guy is probably the fastest Snowy Owl I've ever encountered, literally have seconds to react when you see him lift off.

Sitting with binoculars watching him launch and switching to camera gear is exciting.

I've had a bit of luck with National Geographic photo of the day and some other publications this year. Its been a pretty incredible few months of shooting!
