Big cub on campus! This little guy had a huge personality! Any time he was around he was impossible to ignore. He definitely kept mom busy as she tried to balance eating as much as she could with keeping an eye on this furry little ball of energy. Every time we saw this little guy he was going all out none stop. The only time he wasn't sprinting all over the place was when he was jumping up on his mom and falling over trying to get her attention. He left no stick or blade of grass unturned. Here he is checking us out as he sprints passed us. It was exhausting just watching him!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

We've always enjoyed photographing moose but there is something about seeing these huge Alaska bulls in the tundra. It's so awesome to be able to spend time with these amazing animals in the fall colors and see their behavior as the rut began. When we found this large bull he was just lounging around content to spend the morning by himself. Out of nowhere something clicked and he was up and away. We watched him as he covered several miles in what seemed like a matter of minutes, briefly stopping now and then to survey his surroundings. Here he is crossing the open tundra and making quick work of moving through the low shrubs. We're not sure if he found what he was looking for that morning but he sure was on a mission!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #moose #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #fall #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

We are still going through photos from both of our spring and fall Alaska trips, but that doesn't mean we can't still get out in the field closer to home. We were out last weekend with moose in the fall color on our minds. An early fall storm that left many areas covered in snow quickly changed our focus. Knowing there would be more snow at higher elevations, that's where we head. It didn't take us too long to find this beautiful sow and her cub of the year frolicking in the early winter wonderland. We hadn't seen these two since spring and we were so happy to see them together and looking healthy. She was very active and on the move looking for food while her little cub was doing his best to keep up and enjoy the white stuff! Here she is making her way through the snow with her little mini in tow!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #wyoming #grizzlybear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #fall #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

Here's another large bull from our fall trip to Alaska. On this particular day he was making his way around the area looking for a fight. Every time he would see another bull he would start to sway his antlers back and forth and make haste directly toward them. The smaller bulls would act all tough and swagger back at him but once he got within striking distance, they would bow down and cower and cry out in a high whining voice. It was fascinating to see this guy go after all these smaller bulls, he even poked one in the rear to tell him he meant business. It was awesome to see all the moose interact as the rut began. Here, this bull is giving the evil eye to a small nearby bull who was doing his best to act tough.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #moose #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #fall #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

Even though we just got back from our fall trip to Alaska, we are beginning to miss the bears from our spring trip. We especially miss these two and all the fun we had watching them. This sow was all business eating nearly all day. Her little cub on the other hand was all about play. Constantly running about and frolicking playfully, we were getting tired just watching him. Mom would call him back occasionally and try to keep him close but his energy could not be contained! Here she had tried to get him to come and stay close to her. He pretended to feed for a minute but really just ended up playing with a blade of grass. Here as she looks to check us out, he seems to be showing us his precious grass!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

Nothing says fall like the changing leaves and moose! We had an amazing time hiking and photographing the moose rut in Alaska. While searching for big bulls it was amazing how easily these giants could disappear. One minute they would be making their way across the tundra, the next minute, they would bed down and all but disappear. We saw this big guy enter a thick grove of trees from across the valley. We made our way over and found him quite comfortable in this picturesque spot. I think he liked the view almost as much as we did! It's hard to beat laying around with a huge bull moose on a lazy fall day!⁣ if you haven’t yet, make sure you head over to @wildandexposd_podcast and check us out talking about photography and vanlife!

We had so much fun on our recent fall trip to Alaska. It was a blast hiking in the fall colors looking for wildlife. Our main goal was to find and photograph moose but a close second were caribou. We were lucky to find a few herds of bull caribou in the backcountry while out hiking. When we found this guy hanging out with a few other bulls, they were casually munching in a small drainage. We hunkered down and decided to just hang out and watch these amazing animals. They continued to graze until the largest bull made his way onto a small ridge and lifted his huge antlers while peering our direction. With the fall colors of the high tundra all around and this beautiful bull posing perfectly, the scene was unbelievable!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #fall #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife #caribou #wildplanet

We are finally getting through some images from our most recent trip to Alaska earlier this month. This time we were not looking for bears, we were looking for the boys of fall. Nothing says fall to us like moose and it was awesome to be out in the cooler weather and the fall colors with these giants. On this morning, as we set out there was a heavy fog settled over the valley. There wasn't much visibility, and even though we knew it would be difficult to find any animals, the chance of a big bull in the fog was too much to resist. After seeing nothing a mile and a half into our hike, we saw the outline of a large moose. As he was investigating a nearby cow, we set up near a brilliant patch of color and hoped. He quickly lost interest in the cow and starting heading directly toward us. As he moved into this brilliant patch of orange and yellow, he paused and seemed to pose in the moody fog of the brisk fall morning.⁣ On another note, make sure to tune in and and check us out on the latest @wildandexposd_podcast talking about our vanlife and wildlife photography. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #moose #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #fall #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

Some of the scenes we were able to witness and photograph on our brown bear trip earlier this year were hard to believe. As we were walking the beach shortly before sunrise we saw this large boar combing the beach looking for ladies. As the sun began to rise over the distant mountains it all lined up perfectly as he walked right through the reflection of the sun on the shallow water. Huge brown bear boar walking on the beach? Check. Amazing sunrise reflecting across the tidal flats? Check. What a great way to begin a day!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife⁣⁣⁣⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet

Hello. We're finally back from another trip to the wilds of Alaska. This time we were not looking for bears. As we start to go through our images from our most recent trips, more brown bears will have to due. Here is an image from our trip earlier this year to Alaska to photograph coastal brown bears. This cub was one of our favorites to watch and you can see why. He was always making sure we were paying attention and doing all sorts of silly things. Here after running and rolling around he decided to give us a nice little wave. "Hey friends"!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

Even though we've seen it before we can never believe when a little cub climbs on its mom's back. Quite often when a sneaky little cub tries to climb on their mom's back she quickly spins and sends them flying and goes back to whatever she was doing. Every once and awhile a sow lets a cub climb on her back. Usually its while she is laying down and when she decides it's time to move the cub quickly falls off. On the rare occasion, the cub is ready for the rodeo and hangs on for the ride. Here, this little guy climbed up on mom while she was standing and eating and wasn't about to let go. He looked at us seeming very proud of his accomplishment. It is pretty hilarious to see huge brown bear walking around with a tiny cub clinging on to her back. If you look closely, you can see this cub's sibling looking up at him longingly trying to find a way up to join him.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife⁣⁣⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet

Even with all the amazing bears and cubs we saw on our recent trip on of our favorite encounters was with this coastal wolf. We have seen many wolves in the Yellowstone ecosystem and even a few back in Minnesota. But there is just something about seeing this magnificent animal walk so confidently across a tidal flat surrounded by bears that are over 5 times his size. He was so calm and sure of himself as he made his way passed us it was almost surreal. We were thrilled that he looked so healthy which made us wonder what he was eating. After doing some research seems not much is known about the diet of these wolves when the salmon aren't running and they are actually doing a study to try and answer that exact question. Something tells me this guy has it all figured out.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #wolf #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

We had almost all clear days on our recent trip to Alaska to photograph coastal brown bears. This meant lots of long, warm, bright days. It also meant lots of beautiful sunrises and sunsets. On this particular evening we were already making our way back toward camp when we saw this bear grazing across the meadow from us. We noticed the light was quickly changing and everything was starting to glow a brilliant orange. We set up and wait for the bear to cooperate. As the sunset had us in awe, the bear lifted his head and peered toward the beautiful evening scene, as if almost to appreciate it with us.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

We're back in the field so we apologize if we don't respond to comments right away. In the mean time, here is another image of this little brown bear cub being adorable. When this guy wasn't zooming all over the place looking for things to play with, he was definitely doing what he could to love on mom. Here after running around trying to get her attention, he decided to get a little more in her face. She kept eating grass so he resorted to hamming it up for us and peaked out from under her. It was almost like he was trying to play peak a boo with us!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife⁣⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet

We always love our time with the bears and this year was no different. One of the benefits to spending a long chunk of time in one place is getting to know the animals we are photographing, including this beautiful family. We mentioned in a previous post how closely cubs will watch their mom and try to mimic her behavior. Here is a perfect example. After grazing on sedges on a nearby flat, mom gave the signal she was on the move. The three little ones quickly ran after her and they all made their way to the edge of the river. At first the cubs began to play and fight on the sand but once they saw that mom was going for a drink they all followed. Here you can see all three of them doing their best impression of their mom. "We're big bears too!"⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

We can't think of anyone having more fun then new bear cubs. They are thrilled with everything they come across, seemingly discovering everything for the first time. This little single cub had learned to entertain himself quite well since he didn't have any siblings to play with. He would constantly run around and play with anything he could find, such as sticks, leaves, and rocks. Here he seems to have discovered he has a bum. He rolled around playfully for what seemed like forever grabbing his feet and legs. Here he noticed us watching and just gave us this goofy look as if to say "have you seen my butt?" Pretty hard to miss it with that pose!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife#wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet

We're starting to miss the bears from our most recent trip to Alaska. This family was definitely a favorite and was always entertaining to watch. This sow was very experienced and confident which allowed her to hang out in an area that had a lot of other bears nearby. She was always alert and did a great job keeping an eye on her cubs as well as the other bears. It didn't take long for her young cubs to learn her cues and know when something was up. A simple huff or pop of her mouth would alert the playful little ones to get close to mom. It's amazing how closely the cubs pay attention to their mom and all the little behaviors they pick up right away. Here, a male bear moving through caught mom's attention and the three little ones were tight to mom and checking for danger in an instant. What a cute little family they are!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #brownbear #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #Nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife

We really didn't think our odds of photographing a wolf were very high on our recent trip to Alaska. We knew the odds of seeing one would be decent, but have an opportunity to get good images is a completely different story. We still can't believe this encounter was real. Heading out to the tidal flats to look for bears we spotted this beautiful wolf. Instead of walking away this guy made it's way right for us. It was such an incredible encounter and such a rush! It really is amazing to see these animals move about their environment and the confidence this this wolf walked around with was amazing. As he passed by he looked us right in the eyes. I guess he was ready for his close up!⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #wildlifeplanet #alaska #wolf #insta #wildlifeonearth #animalsofinstagram #animalelite #bealpha #sonypro #wildlife_vision #instawild #potd #photooftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #wildplanet #spring #wildlife #induropushfurther #earthcapture #instanaturefriends #nature_perfection #wild #wildlifephotography #nature #nature_captures #wildplanet #pictureline #photography #live_love_wildlife
