Osprey eating fish

There is lots of activity with the hawks and ospreys at Bolsa Chica right now. If you time it right you can see them while they are dining on some local cuisine. Taking photos like this requires professional level equipment that not only focuses fast with powerful lenses but it can stand up to the rigors of the outdoors. I order all of my camera equipment and accessories from Allen's Camera. They have the best service, and do not push you into purchasing something that is not right for you. Many professional photographers purchase from them instead of the larger places

Tsavo at Night

We call this page "nocturnal Africa" since we spent a significant amount of time out in the bush throughout the evening. Its a whole different world at night.... Before we begin lets look as some of our guides par excellence! Simon, guide and budding comedian forgetting to take the lens cap off. Chui, the flat tire king And Alex, laughing at us as we clang aboard the Land Rovers with all of our equipment. We used a million candle power light at night in order to see in the distance. Most of the time all we could see were the

Enchanted Galapagos

At the end of March I took a group of 12 friends and veterinarians to Galapagos. If it is on your bucket list this trip is well worth the time and effort. The guides are awesome, the wildlife viewing is just about as good as it gets, the water is warm and clear, and the Ecuadorian people are gracious (and prepare great meals). Some of my guests were repeats from my African safari trips and their photographic expertise is increasing (finally). We will share some of their pictures, although this page has just a small fraction of the wildlife we

Katmai National Park

Dr. P spent one week in Alaska Brown bear viewing in August of 2005. It was near the location depicted in the movie "Grizzly". You can call them Grizzlies or Kodiak bears also, since in this part of Alaska they are one in the same. You can sometimes get this close to the bears. This bear was 10 feet away. This is Alaska, and everything is huge, so the smaller size of these photographs for easier downloading on a web page don't begin to do justice to the area and bears. At the end of this page you can link

On Top of the World (almost)

In July of 2012 a group of 11 of us went to Svalbard, Norway and cruised far into the Arctic circle. At the northernmost portion of our trip we were at 82 degrees latitude. The North Pole is 90 degrees latitude, which means we were only 600 miles away. This was true Arctic, with glaciers, icebergs, tundra, and ice fields. It also included the apex predator that so many people are in awe of, the polar bear (Ursus maritimus). We went with Lindblad Expeditions and the National Geographic Explorer, and cannot say enough good things about them. The captain of
