Mireille de la Lez back from Walruses and Polar Bears

Even after seven years in the Arctic, this harsh habitat keeps revealing new secrets to the Swedish photographer - plus some unforeseen and unwanted surprises. Mireille got stuck in the pack ice on her way north, but still managed to return with a bunch of fab pictures. Also thanks to the superb support by the team of our partner, PolarQuest.

See Grzegorz Lesniewski among marmots

It was his first time in the Alps, but photographer Grzegorz Lesniewski from Poland loved every minute of it. Focusing on marmots and Alpine scenery in the Hohe Tauern National Park in Austria, he was amazed by the friendliness of the animals towards the crowds of tourists and hikers. True cupboard love…he even had some fresh snow in the mountains – in mid July!

Facing Groupers – Linda Pitkin off to Corsica

At this very moment, Linda Pitkin might be just inches away from one of the most impressive - and at the same time gruesome looking - fish of the Mediterranean – the Dusky Grouper. “I might use every lens down to my fish-eye with these guys as some of them are really not shy at all”, says Linda. She will be back from the Lavezzi Islands in about two weeks’ time.
