p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Wolverines! - New pic


Late June I was visiting Lieksa, Finland to photograph wolverines. The place to see wolverines is definately at company Erä-Eero (http://www.eraeero.com/wb/pages/english/erae-eero.php) photohides. I spend two nights watching and taking pics of several wolverines, including one dam with three cups. During the first night only two different wolverines showed up, but in the second night total of 5-6 different were visiting the area.

Here's some pictures from both nights.

Yes, I think its the same place.

This area is know to have had almost 1/10 of the wolverines in Finland visiting the site, some years back. Here's one more:

After 5:22am and this wolverine the area was quiet again, and time for me to get some rest - and to download pics from my camera!

Those are some priceless shots. That wolverine going across the creek on the log is superb! I saw some when I lived in Alaska however they are very leery animals. Congratulations on those pictures.

Great to see these shots -- most of us will never get anywhere near a wolverine, or at least will never see one... Thanks for showing these.
