Too many people still believe that the main cause of wildlife disappearance in Africa is poaching. But, in many countries (when they are sensitive to the issue, like in Eastern or Southern Africa), poaching has receeded significantly or even nearly dispapeared. And this is the continuous human expansion which become the engine driving wildlife extinction:… Read More
1st of January, time for good resolutions. For me, this year, I would like to take a photo challenge. 52 photos in 52 weeks, this should not be too easy. But 52 photos according to pre-set constraints ; this could be a serious personal challenge. I believe that the rule of the Dogwood 52 week… Read More
Let’s admit that it won’t be easy to see such a whale shark baby playing (or discovering how to play) with the bubbles produced by scuba divers. So cute a baby! Source: Requin-Blanc.
Grey wolves are present in the Yellowstone National Park. But they are hard to come by and they do not often come near roads. Mostly, you may see then several hundrd yards from you. Let’s say one or two miles from the road… Grey wolf (Canis lupus, loup gris) Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, USA, March… Read More
The Yellowstone National Park is known for its amazing thermal features: Geyzers Hot springs Fumeroles Mud holes etc. I collected a few images of these in a short album. You will easily notice that the fog from very hot water tends to completely change the way you look at things in Winter. Yellowstone National Park,… Read More

A few years ago I had written about Guillermo Luijk’s technique to remove completely noise from digital photos. We know that this is a difficult task, but his solution is relatively simple: Shot the scene in a correct exposure according to our usual workflow; Repeat the shot now reducing shutter speed by 4 f-stops that… Read More

The polar bears were found in the North of Nunavut, Canada, in August 2016. There were a few beluga whale carcasses in Conningham Bay. So much food that bears were very relaxed and did not care much about our zodiac boat (and or cameras). So, we could shoot a few good pictures of this great… Read More
Most people tend to forget it, but polar bears are living in the sea. They tend to get out to the ground (and be photographed more easily there), but they are more than at ease in the water. Polar bear (Ursus maritimus, Ours polaire). Conningham Bay, Nunavut, Canada. August 2016.
As expected, I am back from South Africa, with a lot of wildlife pictures. However, I have to apologize for not posting recently. Some personal issues did not leave me as much time I would have expected to share those images I am satisfied of. Please, be patient with me! See you here very quickly.
Musk ox is assuredly a weird animal. They look a bit like a bison, but they are much smaller. As a matter of fact, they are more a goat with a long coat than a cow (the hair is a good protection against cold weather). It’s not easy to approach them (we saw a few… Read More
Two great videos. Quite different, but both amazing. The first one is really about being there at the right time (and being cool enough to keep shooting the video the whole time): The second is shot from a profesional drone and shows a very interesting behaviour (two males battling for the privilege of swimming around with… Read More
