Βέβαια, από το χεράκι να μη σε δαγκώσει κανένα άγριο ζώο...

Μιας και μίλησες για άγρια ζώα... Δεν το ξανασκέφτεσαι... Λέω εγώ τώρα...

Μην είσαι προβοκατόρισσα εσύ, μικρή. :-)

To photograph the swans in their environment meant I had to endure the same conditions - snowstorms and high winds that roll the snow across the flat land in great waves. The storm was so bitter I wished I could have escaped along with the swans.' Every winter, huge flocks of whooper swans migrate from the far north of Europe and Asia to warmer lowlands. The Rongcheng Swan Lake nature reserve in eastern China is a major overwintering sanctuary for whooper swans. But even here, when the fresh water freezes, the birds are forced to feed in the fields, digging through the snow for grass.

Canon EOS 20D + Sigma 300-800mm f5.6 lens at 300mm; 1/1250 sec at f6.3; ISO 200; tripod.

Big baby nap

'I was photographing wildlife on Guadalupe Island off the coast of Mexico as part of a major scientific project, and watched this elephant seal weanling splash around in the surf and then haul up onto the beach and fall asleep. It's a dangerous time, as big, plump babies with limited swimming skills attract great white sharks.' Female elephant seals go without food while they nurse their pups. By the time the pup is weaned, its mother is starving and abandons it to go in search of food - the youngsters are left to fend for themselves. Young elephant seals must quickly learn to catch deep-water squid, octopus, fish and crabs.

Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II + Canon 300mm f2.8 IS USM lens + 2x II extender EF; 1/60 sec at f10; ISO 200; Gitzo tripod.

Βικούλα, έλα και θα σε πάμε μαζί!!!!! Θέλω να ξαναπάω. Είχα πάει και πέρυσι και είχα πάθει πλάκα...

Οι τιμές, βέβαια, των αναμνηστικών λευκωμάτων ήταν τρομακτικές, αλλά το όλο θέμα αξίζει.

The show

'As it walked slowly towards the waterhole at Hobatere Lodge in Namibia, this solitary giraffe kept looking over towards four lions on a nearby ridge. One of the lions, an ambitious young male, raced down from the ridge to chase the giraffe for some distance, watched by the assembled oryx.' Lions are the giraffe's main predators, and giraffes are particularly vulnerable to attack when lying down, drinking or feeding from the ground. Unlike females, male giraffes tend to live alone, which also makes them more open to predation.
