WiLDiMAGES - Andy Young Photography

I am an evolutionary biologist seeking to capture something of the world.

My research frequently takes me to Africa's wild places, but much of my photography involves hunting for peculiar mammals on other continents. I have a particular interest in camera trapping and noctural photography. My two primary subjects are Humans and The Wild.

Brown bears in Abruzzo

We took a long weekend in Italy to look for brown bears in the Abruzzo mountains. We managed good scope views of three bears foraging in a valley in the north, and also wild boar, red fox, European hare, roe deer, plenty of red deer, good numbers of chamois, one golden eagle and some great orchids, including a wonderful lady slipper. Unseasonal snows gave the scenery an extra edge and made the trek up the Valle de Rose more of an adventure than it might otherwise have been. A beautiful and quiet part of the world, with some great characters and some awesome food. We might have to come back to find those wolves...
