Still many more images from my trip to Finland, processing takes so long when you pile them in !! It is very pleasing to find images that have not caught the eye directly. One from a series of images taken when these cubs behaved in front of my hide !! A very special moment !!

Totally different to anything I can capture so a delight for me to see, Ron: I bet you could sit there in the hide for ages watching and snapping away.

Delightful shot - no matter which species, the little ones always find time for play - part of learning the skills needed when grown.

Playing and learning all at the same time Ron, nice candid capture.
Have you been watching Gordon Buchanan's programmes on the polar bears?
He certainly is a brave man for his art.

Maybe foolish Dougie, although he has the advantage of a BBC crew and a Norwegian guide !! That Mother bear wasted a lot of energy trying to prise him from his cube !! Is that ethical and did they want to be lunch to that Male !!!!!

It is interesting how images we ignore at first flush pop out when we go back. I'm sorting out a show from my India trip and there are some shots previously ignored coming out there too.
