Some images are years in the making , and the moment is over in 1/3200. Images like this I had to be above the penguin, have flat light, be able to see them under water, and pick one out of many, and follow it and learn its timing.

Seeing a polar bear in the wild is always an amazing experience, but to get one with an alpenglow from the rising sun in the Arctic, was mind-blowing. Very honored and blessed to have seen this moment. Two younger male polar bears are having a bit of play while waiting on the ice to freeze. Image taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Canon 600 mm lens.

Learning to fly, but I ain't got wings. An adelie penguin looks as if it is ready for takeoff, I gently reminded him they are called flippers, not wings. And honor of Antarctica Day, which sadly is already showing man's touch.

I call these adelie penguins The Usual Suspects. It's almost if they are trying to look innocent after they've done something. Not quite pulling off the innocent bit with the white ring around the eye.
