Painting by @davidmceown // “Polar Bear Reflections”, 22 x 30 inches watercolour. I painted this mother polar bear and her almost grown offspring several years ago during a trip to the North Pole via a stop over in Franz Joseph Land, Russia. I was struck with the reflections in the widening crack of the ice which seemed symbolic of the plight polar bears face with vanishing ice .

I first met @CristinaMittermeier at the beginning of my career in photography at a NANPA (North America Nature Photography Association) meeting, roughly 15 years ago. Little did I know then what the future would hold, how we would one day end up working together as fellow conservation photographers. I admire her determination, stamina, and her positive approach to difficult issues. 
A few days ago, Cristina's IG account reached one million followers! A great achievement for her, and a million more voices speaking up for good causes.
Cristina just published her new book, 'AMAZE.’ The tittle says it all. A great Christmas gift!

Grizzly bears are omnivores, meaning their diet is as varied as the human diet. They eat grass, berries, roots, fungi, and seeds. They are not hunters, but they are opportunistic meat eaters, scavenging on dead animals and insects, occasionally killing new born, injured, or old ungulates. During the salmon run they like to fish to build up fat reserves for their winter hibernation.

"King penguins commute every morning from the colony to the beach, like diligent workers commuting to work in the big cities. They then jump into the sea to fish for the day.
I was fortunate to spend a full week in the Falkland Islands in late October, following them. Rain or shine, I was there — at the beach — witnessing  the parade and trying to capture the elegance of these gentle creatures in the morning light. "

I still have a few books available in Italian and English! E.mail me at daisy@daisygilardini.com to order your copy!
The book is a collection of photographs which celebrate one of the most iconic creatures of the animal kingdom and the fragile ecosystems that it inhabits.
In the last 10 years, Daisy has roamed extensively in bear country, from the Arctic to Alaska and the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia, focusing on photographing while studying and understanding the challenges the North American Bears are facing.

Magellanic penguins are closely related to the African, the Humboldt and the Galapagos penguins. The all four species are in fact known as banded penguins and also jackass penguins. This funny name come from the fact that all of them make a sound similar to a donkey’s call.

I am back home after the last 5 weeks spent in Penguin/Seal country - Falkland Islands and South Georgia. What an incredible time! I look forward to share more images in the next few weeks.
At this time of the year the elephant seal pups are so playful and funny to photograph!
