Through the pouring rain along the coast of British Columbia, a grizzly bear rises from a salmon creek with a rock carefully balanced on his forehead. Even bears take a break from this essential feeding time for a bit of fun.
There are many damaging myths surrounding bears, grizzlies especially, and it is up to us to not only educate ourselves on the difference between fact and fiction but to protect the ecosystems that we all rely on for survival. While it is a fact that grizzlies are omnivores, and they can survive on a vegetarian diet, without salmon, they become stressed. Scientists have documented an increased level of the stress hormone, Cortisol when faced with decreased numbers of salmon returning to the rivers each fall. As the amount of salmon eaten increases, the Cortisol levels decrease.⠀

Photograph by @paulnicklen // Some people see them as just fish. However, after spending hundreds of hours floating in creeks and rivers with salmon, I see them as gifted athletes with an incomparable determination and perseverance to reach their natal streams to release their eggs into the gravel for future generations of salmon. I am humbled by their ability to return to the exact stream in which they were hatched after several years at sea. Once they spawn, they die soon after and continue to nourish the environment around them. #follow us on @paulnicklen and @sea_legacy as we continue to bring attention to the importance of properly managing these essential populations of wild salmon. #fish #thefuture #mpa #20by2020 #nature #althletes #love #beauty #greatbearsea #naturelovers #instagood

Totally unnecessary, but when you get a RARE refeed from @mattporterapproved you take advantage of it. This is a LAT deadlift. I am NOT sitting. There is ZERO Leg drive and my head is DOWN. My grip is also very wide so I can keep Lats flared. Back starts rounded and Lats on full stretch and as you pull you keep your lats flared and retract your scap (shoulder blades). Think of it as a deadlift where the back muscles lengthen and shorten, rather than hold static. MUCH harder and MUCH more beneficial to growth IMO. This was after a single arm diagonal pulldown I used to potentiate and pump my Lats, but it felt SO good I ended up doing 12 full sets, effectively also pre-exhausting my Lats for this dead. STILL GOT IT THO 😎 did TONS of stretch and contractile work after this and Back is destroyed...... 8 days!

The thing I love the most about leopard seals is that they are amazing communicators. They are full of curiosity and always seem to have an excess of bravado for the first few minutes of an encounter. Then they either leave or stick around and act like a huge dog as was the case with this beauty. But, this is truly a case of “don’t try this at home”. I have been around wild animals all of my life and believe that I exude a calm energy and in turn, they relax. At least I feel nice and relaxed. The best thing about this photograph is that you get to study the canine and tri-cusp molar dentition of this species. The canines are for catching penguins the the molars are more for straining krill out of the water. Like a baleen whale, they take a big mouthful of krill and water and then use their big tonuge to push the water out between their teeth while keeping the krill in their mouths. Genius!

Competing is a super selfish sport... these days I'm feeling super low energy, hangry, and annoying to be around. But thank you to the people who push me through by doing little things like tagging me in posts, sending quotes, tearing me up in the gym, prepping my food etc. I appreciate it all! Few weeks left to knock it out 💥👊🏼💥

2 different stages within weeks of each other - if I could go back, I would DEFINITELY NOT prep for my first show during my last semester of graduate school, stress levels were at an all time high , long days and nights and honestly a whole lot to handle when you add work, family and relationships. But hey I got through it with a great support system by my side ! & now I cannot wait for the next show and work my butt off for a package 10 times better 🙏🏼🙌🏼 #goalgetter #grad #mpa #fitness #motivation #healthylifestyle #letthegainsbegin

A pair of black-browed albatross preens each other on the edge of a cliff overlooking the wild Atlantic Ocean . Preserved by a local conservancy, New Island has lots of nests, which are often found on the many perilous cliffs that fringe the island. Both parents help take care of their one chick and they take turns going out to sea to bring food back to the nest. I creeped on my belly as close as I dared, without disrupting this couple, and enjoyed the affectionate nibbles, smoothing of feathers and clashing of beaks with which they greeted each other every time one of them returned to the nest.

To see a pictures of the fluffy albatross babies, please #followme on my #instagram at @CristinaMittermeier.

#flashbackfriday 2011 on the left at the NPC Washington State Championships one week before the NPC USA championships as a lightweight at 160lbs roughly. And on the right, 2015 NPC USA championships where I sucked down to 143.20 one day before the show and ended up around 157lbs after carb loading and earning a perfect score to run away with the bantamweight title and IFBB pro card. #finewine #fitness #ifbb #muscle #symmetry #posingperfection #npcnewsonline #musculardevelopment #flex #shredded #peeled #dickskinconditioning #teamgro #mpa #mattporterapproved #natty #nattymuscle #nattynation #npcclassicphysique #ifbbclassicphysique #90sconditioning #classicbodybuilder #classicbodybuilding #proportion #balancedphysique #aesthetics #opticalillusion #crazyconditioning #striations
