Peeking out from a bush, this absolutely beautiful Cinnamon/Chocolate Black Bear poses and takes a look at me! This Jasper Bear got friendlier and came out from the bush and said if you want pictures, take all you want! I left this bear eating whatever vegetation He was interested in right out in the open! This is one of the best looking Bears I have ever had the privilege of taking pictures of! #blackbear #bearstagram #bear #bearsarethebest #posing #model #art #instafollow #instadaily #instagood #instafun #follow #jasper #eating #background #me #love #followme #scenery #action #swag #goodlooking #handsome #chocolate

Scenic Bear! This beautiful Bear wanted a photo shoot so we had to go to an exotic location! On the beach with mountains in the background! It had to be better than that famous sports magazine's famous places so we arranged this in Katmai, Alaska! And there was plenty of models to choose from but this one stoled the show! Can you imagine being in this location with Bear after Bear to choose from? Do you see why they call it Bear Heaven? #bearheaven #background #bearstagram #bearsarethebest #alaska #katmai #bear #background #beach #fun #instafollow #instadaily #instagood #instafun #follow #posing #model #art #scenery #action #followme #photooftheday #skyblue #coastalbrownbear

Barred Owlet poses up in the tree! This gorgeous baby is just out of the nest but already gone into the forest! With Mom and Dad caring for it for awhile! You can see adult feathers and even though this is the smaller Owlet of them, it looks extremely healthy! And it can rotate its head way around like an adult! Happy new week everyone! #barredowlet #owlsome #owlweneed #owllove #forest #posing #model #art #background #style #instafollow #instadaily #instagood #instafun #follow #fledging #baby #love #light #fun #followme #background #rotating #head #photooftheday

Male Deer in Velvet! First Male Deer I've seen with any kind of antlers this year! He had a harem of Female Deer following him! If course he was posing through the trees, against the light and at a distance! He did let me creep up on him and he held still while I realized that the trees really framed his awesome head and really weren't in the way! Plus the green in the background! He took off with his lovers after I took this picture! He must be a real 'dear' boyfriend to be such a player!! #deer #buck #background #scenery #stud #player #fun #followme #forest #lover #boyfriend #swag #instafollow #instadaily #instagood #style #follow #posing #model #art #love #trees #me #spring

The Boss and His Daughter! The Boss is the biggest, baddest Grizzly Bear in Banff National Park and beyond! Over 700lbs of Grizzly Bear, he does what he wants when he wants to! Even hang out with his daughter, a Blonde Grizzly! I found them last year walking towards this beautiful glacial stream and heading off together! Be back there soon and hopefully I'll get to have some similar experiences as last year! #grizzly #bear #bearsarethebest #bearstagram #colors #bearheaven #background #instafollow #instadaily #instagood #followme #scenery #action #swag #posing #model #art #style #swag #follow #lakelouise #love #badass #baddest #dontmess #nature_brilliance #big_shotz

Barred Owlet! Escaped the nest and climbed up in another tree! To be fed and taken care of by Mom and Dad! And of course there's a sibling! They grow up so fast! In a matter of days they're off to the forest hiding and never to be seen again! Except by the parents 'who' always know where they are at! A lot more of this family to come! Happy Weekend everyone! #barredowlet #forest #owlsome #owlweneed #owllove #love #posing #model #art #instafollow #instadaily #instagood #fun #follow #fledging #baby #background #me #followme #spring #photooftheday

Wood Duck with reflection! Are two heads better than one? These Ducks usually hang out right in the big pond but I saw this one by the boats! In the harbor! Right in North part of Chicago! By the Zoo!

Pileated Woodpecker mom feeding her babies! As you can see she's loaded up with food. What an awesome time we had watching these gorgeous Woodpeckers! This is really pure nature! At one point we had these Woodpeckers making all their noises, a Coopers Hawk yelling at them loudly, Coyotes howling and Barred Owls hooting! A real forest chorus! All at the same time! Happy Wednesday everyone! #pileatedwoodpecker #forest #chorous #colors #birding #love #style #instafollow #instadaily #scenery #background #me #follow #springbreak #babies #woodythewoodpecker #fun #followme #feeding #family

Black Bear poses for a portrait! This is the Humphrey Bogart of Black Bears with that cool swag look on his face and the cigarette hanging out of his mouth! The more I looked at this, the more I liked it! This is a Canadian Rockies Bear that was in the bright sun but when you can get the car close enough it negates that! The old time movie star of Bears, you got to love it! #blackbear #bearstagram #bearsarethebest #posing #model #art #humphreybogart #swag #moviestar #instafollow #instadaily #style #follow #scenery #background #me #love #followme #instagood #sun #bright #dandelions #canadianrockies

Skunk! Love them or hate them, it seems like people have strong opinions about them! This one was in the local Grasslands after having been released by a man who caught it and let it go in nature! Definitely a feisty one, I felt it didn't want to spray me and I was right! They usually do not want to spray but you have to be careful around them! Poor dogs are often their victims! Ok, I do want to hear your skunk stories! #skunk #feisty #spray #scary #instafollow #instadaily #instagood #instafun #follow #grassland #background #me #love #followme #scenery #action #swag #posing #model #art

Mother Bear nurses her Yearling Cubs! Another magical moment in nature! This Coastal Brown Bear is obviously doing everything she can do to take care of her Cubs! As do all Mothers who work so hard and give so much to their children! Anything to make their children better people! Happy Mother's Day to all you numerous Mothers out there and may you have a blessed day! #coastalbrownbear #bearstagram #bearsarethebest #breastfeeding #posing #magical #model #art #alaska #hapoymothersday #background #style #instafollow #instadaily #instagood #instafun #follow #katmai #bear #background #me #love #followme #scenery #action #swag #caring #

Barred Owlet climbs out of its nesting area! We've been watching this area for over a month and finally it paid off! My nature friend and Owl whisperer Wanetta kept me informed of all the new developments if I was not around! At this point we're familiar with the whole family! A very private family that never gives away a clue about why they are there and where the nest was. The Mother at this point keeps close watch over the Owlet, just like all Mothers do! Happy Mother's Day to all the Mothers out there! #owlet #barredowl #owlsome #owlweneed #owllove #nest #nesting #followme #scenery #background #instafollow #instadaily #instagood #instafun #follow #springbreak #baby #posing #model #art
