Wildlife Game of Thrones: Wolf versus Crow

By Steven Spence @TheStevenSpence “Through the bleak and early morn, Where a stronger will is sworn, Where the moments move so slow, And seem to never let you go.” —Excerpt, “The Wolves and the Ravens” by Rogue Valley The wolves and the crows Recently I took advantage of some lovely winter weather to visit the wolves at Wildpark Bad Mergentheim in Germany.

Grizzly Bears Catching Clams in Alaska

This is a continuation of our Photographer’s Adventures in Alaska series. Previously from wildlife photographer Max Goldberg: Adventures with Grizzly Bears and Grazing Grizzly Bears By Max Goldberg After some much needed rest, my group of photographers got back into the dinghy, and headed back towards shore. At this point, the tide had gone out and there were approximately 200 yards of beach that we had never seen before. We jumped out of the dinghy, and started to walk up the beach. Once we put all our gear down, and set up our bucket…
