Se dice que los osos grizzly es considerado por muchos como el oso mas agresivo por varios factores, En tenido la dicha de poder compartir con estos oso en varias oportunidades como en esta foto tomada con un lente 70- 200 es decir que estuve a menos de medio metro , en estas experiencia me queda muy claro lo que es la naturaleza solo hay que respetar el espacio de los animales y cuando están con crías el doble de distancia.

The past few days we experienced quite an aurora storm here at South Pole. This is a display of the auroras over the Dark Sector, the area where all the big science experiments are located here at Pole.
The other day we had some very nice purple auroras here at South Pole. This coronal one was just straight above me with beautiful colors. The Milky Way shows up as well in the upper left corner of the image.
Message: Dear Doctor:
In the rigid expanse of Antarctica, men from many nations staff the geo-physical stations, gathering scientific data. Doctors here demand—and get—the utmost in dependability and safety in their medical supplies. One of these is PENTOTHAL, agent of choice the world over in intravenous anesthesia.

Somehow I talked my way into the cockpit of the C-130 that was landing on the ice in Antarctica. It was my first time landing in a plane with skis on the bottom, so it was pretty exciting. I wasn't nervous… and these cool-headed US Military guys put my mind at ease! :)
During one of my midnight walks in Antarctica I came across this deep, dark ice cave. I was by myself, but I really wanted to go inside. I thought the better of it, which is a high-point for my normally untrustworthy judgment. If I had gone in here and disappeared, I would not have been found for three more ice ages. But my camera should still be intact, and this would have been the final photo recovered by future-robots!

The shape of this iceberg reminded me of a prehistoric raptor. Picture taken around Nansen Island, during a 3 weeks expedition tour to Antarctica on a sailing boat, organised and led by the well known photographer Daniel Kordan. via 500px ift.tt/2p7225D

Half Moon Island is a crescent-shaped Antarctic volcanic island and is considered one of the most beautiful spots in the South Shetland Islands. It’s been attracting humans since whalers and sealers arrived in the early 1800’s. The Argentine Cámara Base is located on the island and more than 3,000 breeding pairs chinstrap penguins live at Half Moon Island. The wreck of this old whaling boat is located at the south end of the island. via 500px ift.tt/2plOzaR
