"The Polar bear cubs are full of adrenaline on ice-flow in Svalbard. The mother was just trying to have a quiet stroll but the cubs were not having any of that. This was the male cub and he just was so entertaining to watch."

Location- Big Sur, California
"I'd gone to Big Sur to watch the gray whale migration from the cliffs, but it was too foggy to even see the water. I decided to hike up the Baronda Trail to see if I could get above the fog. This view was my reward. Miles of lupine and blue skies. Outstanding!"
#6 “The Dreaming Tree”

Location- Strzelecki Desert, Australia
"In the Strzelecki desert of Australia, a flock of galahs replenish on the only small water available at the base of this lonely tree. It's a rare photo opportunity to get such a clear and symmetrical shot of these beautiful birds in flight in the middle of the desert."
#7 “Bringing Home Breakfast”

Location- St. Petersburg, Florida, USA
"This osprey had just captured this fish, and I was lucky enough to capture this dramatic shot as he took off with his wings in the angel position, clutching a fish in one talon, and making direct eye contact with me. And then I shot a whole sequence of him making a left turn from here, landing in his nest and sharing his catch with his mate sitting in the nest. I have photographed this osprey often in that he has made his nest in the same spot for four years. His name is Fleck due to a fleck in his right eye at the 7 o'clock position."
#8 “Warming Up”
