While he was photographing a baby fox that caught a rabbit, a bald eagle stormed down and tried stealing the fox’s dinner.

You may not have heard of Thomas Mangelsen, but he is one of the most respected icons in the world of wildlife photography. With an illustrious career that spans forty years, he’s responsible for some of the most popular wildlife photos that include the Catch of the Day, an image you’ve most likely seen of a bear catching a fish jumping out of a raging stream. Last weekend, we got a better glimpse of his life on the award-winning show 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper.

Ah, wildlife photography… What a great way to take some gorgeous shots while also enjoying nature. You sit there, enjoy peace, quiet and beautiful weather, think about stuff, hang out with a bear… Wait, what?

Narrated by Canon’s Larry Thorpe, this video outlines the specs of this $70K lens, but also shows Nörenberg thoughts about it, as well the results it lets him achieve.
I must admit I rarely meet teenagers interested in something other than video games and social networks. But, from time to time, I hear about kids who amaze me.

Although most of us probably won’t ever get the chance to photograph mountain hares in the snow, it’s an interesting concept. It’s the opposite of shooting somebody in a black suit on a black background. Although, the principles are pretty much the same. The only real differences are that out in the wilderness with hares, you don’t get much control over the lighting and they don’t take direction very well.
Landscape and wildlife photography YouTube channel, NatureTTL took a trip to the Cairngorms in Scotland to go find mountain hares to photograph. While they are the typical brown colour during the summer, in winter they turn white, making them quite difficult to spot. But spot them they did, and came away with some great photographs.
