Kamchatka bears on Kurilsky lake
Formed 8-50 thousand years ago, Lake Kurilsky on Kamchatka peninsula is 300 m deep and 12 km long. The lake is famous for its wonderful landscapes, surrounding volcanoes, and also for bears, and there are plenty of them here. In fact, the lake is full of salmon, that’s why bears are never hungry here. Meanwhile, according to researchers, up to 1.7 million fish use the lake and its tributaries for spawning. The reason of Kamchatka bears’ non aggressive behavior is their fish “diet” that they have preferred to the meat. However, the place inhabited by bears is surrounded by an electric fence to stop the animals from attacking people. They stay on their territory and forget about people. So, the fence is just a restricting factor.
Bears climbing trees
Like children, bears enjoy climbing trees, and they do it better than human children. Its thanks to the fact that nature has endowed them with everything necessary for climbing. In fact, bears have curved claws, which allows them to cling to the bark of trees. While bears who seek food on earth, such as for example grizzly bears, have straight and long claws. Controlled by powerful muscles claws allow the bears climb trees. These photographs of cute cubs playing in the trees are taken at the zoo Port Saint Père, which is near the city of Nantes in France, and also in other places. In particular, in the National Park The Great Smoky Mountains (USA), Katmai National Park (Alaska, USA), and the Ussuri region of Far East of Russia.
Nature photography by Sergey Novozhilov
“We do not want merely to see beauty… we want something else which can hardly be put into words- to be united with the beauty we see, to pass into it, to receive it into ourselves, to bathe in it, to become part of it. That is why we have peopled air and earth and water with gods and goddesses, and nymphs and elves.”
― C.S. Lewis.

The works are wonderful, bewitch and attract the eye. But, one can hardly say that there is no photoshop in them, and probably there is. Just no camera is able to convey what the human eye sees.
