Port Blair, Andaman Islands

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

This was taken in Port Blair, where every morning people come to feed these pigeons. These birds don’t fear human presence, and every day more than 22 pounds of grain is fed to these birds of flight.

Bear, Finland

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

This was the only bear that turned up that night. I spent 16 hours in the hide, and at about midnight, he turned up. He made one appearance and then disappeared. I just loved seeing the bear in its beautiful habitat. Image taken in Finland.

Gorillas, Rwanda

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

I took this photograph on the final day of a four-day trip to Volcanoes National Park in Rwanda. The two juvenile gorillas were playing endlessly, rumbling and tumbling as most of their family members of the Sabyinyo group relaxed and rested comfortably. Pouring over my shots following the trek, I was just as excited as the expression on their faces when I saw I had at least one photograph of the hundred or so I took of them in the midst of their debauchery.

Snowy Owl, Long Island

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

Not too far from the daily “rush hour” campaign one can visit one of nature’s most special environments—Jones Beach, New York, the west end. It’s a perfect host for various bird of prey species throughout the four seasons. Each winter hundreds of birders and photographers travel in search of the snowy owl.

Cape Fur Seals, South Africa

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

Cape fur seals are a favorite photographic subject of mine. They are curious and playful but at the same time hard to photograph. When there are hundreds of seals in the water they zoom around at breakneck speeds, their bodies forming strange shapes as they twist and turn. Occasionally a mob of seal pups will take great pleasure in tugging a diver’s fins or bumping a cameraman’s strobes, leaving the diver amused but slightly abused. Here a seal takes great pleasure in mouthing my dome port. Seal Island, Hout Bay, Cape Town.
