#ExtraordinaryBirder Christian Cooper has extraordinary wisdom about the power of representation: "It changes people's perception when they see someone like them doing something... it becomes possible for them to imagine themselves doing it." #BlackHistoryMonth @ReimagineTmrw
#DrPol's prescription for these calves is a hearty meal!
This past summer I was able to photograph and film a polar bear family feasting on a carcass that had washed up on the shore in Svalbard. One of the cubs was particularly aggressive, even with mom vocalizing while he tried to gorge himself on whale blubber. 3/4
Then there is summer, the fasting season when the absence of ice pushes the bears onto dry land, where food can be scarce. Their diet is low in protein during this time, consisting mainly of bird eggs and kelp. Occasionally they may find a whale carcass on the beach. 2/4

Minnie's sprain is causing pain, but soon she'll be right as rain 🐎#DrPollM

It’s extremely challenging to get it right because penguins’ shiny belly feathers are extremely reflective, and it’s all too easy to “burn out” the whites and lose all the detail as a result. I usually underexpose the flash by 1 stop, to avoid too much contrast. 3/4
One stormy morning at Volunteer Point in the Falkland Islands (Malvinas), the light suddenly dropped dramatically and the sky turned black with menacing clouds. I love dramatic skies, so I decided to try a bit of fill flash with these penguins. 2/4
Photo by @daisygilardini / I’m not a big fan of flash as a rule but occasionally, when really necessary, I’ll use it for a bit of fill. I always pay attention to the animal’s reaction though, and if I see any negative impact I’ll immediately stop and look for an alternative. 1/4

If more than one female is receptive, then there is an even greater risk of conflict with other males. 2/3
Photo @jasonedwardsng - Male lions face a fraught time when females in the pride are in oestrus. They have to chaperone the lioness and keep rival and potentially more powerful males at bay, risking injury and death. 1/3

Video by @daisygilardini / A group of young common mergansers fight for the right to feed on a big fish. Adult males are able to swallow a fish as long as 12 inches in one go. These young are training for that for sure! #britishcolumbia #birdphotography #merganser #wildlifevideo

Play fight among cubs is an extremely important part of a bear's life! It allows them to learn and build up the self-confidence necessary to live alone in the wilderness. 2/3

Unfortunately for this poor pup, cherry eye isn't as sweet as it sounds! #DrPol
With a predator in fast pursuit, can this penguin make it to safety? #HostilePlanet
They use their whiskers to guide movement, look for food and explore the world around them. Basically, they use their whiskers the way we humans use our fingertips. In this instance, the young sea lion was trying to figure out my camera dome by extending his whiskers. (2/3)
Photo by @daisygilardini / A close encounter with a young Galapagos sea lion. Sea lions have thick, long whiskers, but their looks can be deceiving. Their whiskers are some of the most sensitive in the animal kingdom. (1/3)

Polar bears have long necks for swimming and for catching seals through breathing holes in the ice. Follow me @daisygilardini for more images and stories behind the scenes. #canada #manitoba #polarbear #conservation 3/3
Polar bears’ ears and tails are small, to avoid unnecessary heat dispersal. Their paws are huge, allowing them to walk on thin ice. Their black footpads are covered by papillae which, coupled with their long claws, act as a crampon effect, gripping the ice while walking. 2/3
Photo by @daisygilardini / Polar bears evolved to live in the cold. Two layers of fur — one of which has hollow hair — black skin, and a thick layer of fat protect them from frigid temperatures. 1/3
