Congratulations to the_norwegian for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 18 votes - View Previous Winners


Hello everyone, hope the new year has been treating you good so far! Some of my pictures from last summer/early fall to no man`s land, the border area between Finland and Russia, where these animals roam free and proud. Hope you like the pictures! All the shots are taken with a mix of Nikon D750&D4s, tamron 150-600, Sigma 120-300S, Nikon 600 f/4.

Just because it`s night, doesn`t mean we can`t take pictures, right?

This picture is perhaps not very special amongst all wolf-pictures out there, but to me, it`s very special. This is my first frame of my first wild wolf, it appeared out of the woods just as the light couldn`t be better. I`m not sure if my heart was racing at this moment, or if i almost had no puls at all, but my god, the adrenalin-rush after this session.. Almost get goose-bumps just thinking about it. This is the oldest son of the alpha-couple.

And this is the alpha-couple. A truly great evening and night, the icing on the cake was the whole pack of 6 surrounding the hide at around 200-300 meters, giving us 2 houling-concerts.. Under a full moon! Goose-bumps doesn`t start to describe it, it was more like the hairs on my arms and neck started popping out by themselves.

A determined bear is nothing to mess with, unless you have the strengt of the pack on your side, and right here, he didn`t..

That`s it for now, hope you enjoyed the pictures!

These are all just marvelous, Asgeir! The feel of the wilderness really comes through in these images. The top of the set, 1 through 6, are each beautiful, and 12 is as haunting a wildlife image as I can recall seeing. The wild wolves are an extra special bonus. Fantastic work and look forward to seeing more!

An outstanding set Asgeir. It's very seldom that I think "WOW!" when I see a photo because I have seen so many photos over the years. 1 and 3 made me think "WOW!" ~ Ron

Excellent work. Some great images of both the bears and the wolves, but the first image is truly spectacular.

Those bears are extremely well fed! They look huge. Excellent images, with gleaming guard hairs, good poses, and interesting environment. And excellent light. The whole set provided very enjoyable viewing.

Thank you everyone, i`m glad you likes my pictures! I have plenty more, i might make another post a later day Yes, these bears are well fed, i don`t think they come out of their den before they need to ;-) summer is coming to an end when these picures were taken, so they are almost as good and fat as they should be. Truly amazing animals! Not going there this year though, i`m saving up to my first african safari later this year! I can`t hardly wait!

Love em!......especially #4. I have to look at that region tonight on the net. Seem to recall seeing Finnish grizzly images from other Nordic photographers in the past. And there was water in those images too. Very exciting place!

Sparrowhawk, Gray wolves, grizzlies. Ravens too ?

If I may ask.....what is the carcass that they are all drawn to ? Thank you. I want to go there one day

sure, lots and lots of ravens as well as wolverines, golden and white tailed eagles, goshawk, great grey owls, buzzards, kites, lynx, although not right here, they of course avoid areas with lots of bears and wolves. Mostly moose-carcass, but also selfdead farm-animals. Check out this webpage : http://www.articmedia.fi/ for more info :-)
