              Website: photoworkshopadventures.com/Scotland-Shetland-Islands The Shetland Islands in June offers almost 24-hours of daylight, possible whale and dolphin sightings, a strong sense of Viking heritage, spectacular weather, breathtaking landscapes and more than a million breeding seabirds. What more can one ask for? The Shetland’s – the northern extremity of the British Isles, is a unique experience whether you travel as a regular tourist or with your luggage stuffed with camera gear. The combination of breathtaking landscapes and the abundant wildlife make this archipelago a photographer’s paradise. The archipelago is located on the border between the Atlantic Ocean and the North Sea 110 miles (170 km) north of mainland Scotland. This precarious position is a recipe for dramatic scenery and spectacular weather. Although this wildlife workshop focuses mainly on seabirds, the Shetland’s surreal landscape is constantly present and practically begging you to shoot it. The workshop will coincide with the height of summer where daylight lasts for almost 24 hours, a million seabirds in large colonies are breeding and feeding their chicks and if we are lucky one might also spot orcas, whales or dolphins. SHETLAND ISLANDS PHOTO ADVENTURES photoworkshopadventures.com/Scotland-Shetland-Islands THE WORLD'S MOST CREATIVE AND INSPIRING PHOTO ADVENTURE VACATIONS.

                Pretty Kitty—Bobcat in Carlton County Minnesota. Photos at http://thephotonaturalist.com/2015/01/31/pretty-kitty-carlton-county-bobcat/ Contact Sparky at 218.341.3350 or thesparkygroup@gmail.com It is good to have a network of friends, and for many reasons—Friends you shoot with, friends who can give you critique and feedback, and friends who give you tips on wildlife locations. And my buddy Gene helped me with the latter. I think the text said something like “the bobcat came back this morning” This was monumental news! How could he state that so nonchalantly? I called him immediately and was set up on his property in a remote part of Carlton County, Minnesota the next day. A mere 25 minute drive from my house, I got there just after sunrise. After about 45 minutes of sitting quietly, it was an unbelievable thrill when Gene whispered, “Here she comes.” (We’ll call her “she” as her size seems small and features delicate…Plus, what a pretty face!). She cautiously slipped between the hazel brush, slinking her way towards the road-killed deer that Gene had provided. Bobcats have increased in Minnesota over the last few decades. In an article titled “Bountiful Bobcats” in the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer Jan/Feb 2014, the author quotes “From the 1970s up to about 2000, bobcat population numbers were fairly low and stable, according to John Erb, furbearer biologist for the Department of Natural Resources. But starting around 2000, the bobcat population increased rapidly. It grew for about eight years and now appears to be stabilized at about 5,200 in spring and 8,200 in fall. (That’s well above the levels observed from 1977 to 1997—about 1,700 in spring and 2,300 in fall.) Erb and other wildlife managers hope to better understand the causes and potential implications of this bobcat resurgence.” The Volunteer article goes on to say, “An adult is roughly 3 feet long including its short, “bobbed” 4- to 7-inch tail. Adult males, or toms, can weigh more than 30 pounds and occasionally over 40. Adult females usually weigh 20 to 25 pounds.” Why are they increasing? John Erb is the MN DNR’s furbearer biologist…”Erb suspects multiple reasons for the recent bobcat population explosion, although he stresses the need for more research to winnow out the causes. One possible factor is the changing climate. Minnesota is at the northern extent of bobcat distribution in North America. Bobcats are less efficient deep-snow predators than are Canada lynx, which have thicker fur, longer legs, and oversized paws.” “Milder winters might be aiding survival rates, particularly for younger animals,” Erb says. “Female bobcats might also be coming through winter in better condition, so they might be having better reproductive output and survival of kittens.” “Forest management could also be playing a role. Erb says disturbed and younger forests often provide dense cover and abundant edge habitat, which bobcats and some of their prey prefer. He believes this habitat has expanded due to increased logging that began in the mid-1980s, accelerated in the early 1990s, and continued until recent years. He points to a similar pattern of young forests, plentiful deer, and booming bobcat populations in the 1940s and ’50s, following turn-of-the-century logging, fires, and other forest disturbances.” From the article by Jacob Edson “Bountiful Bobcats” in the Minnesota Conservation Volunteer, Jan/Feb 2014 “Another factor that could be affecting bobcat populations is the increase in deer and turkey populations. Bobcats prey on deer, particularly fawns, and scavenge on dead deer, especially during winter.” Surprisingly, Bobcats are also able to take down adult deer. One researcher has also noted that Fishers are declining in the core Bobcat range in Minnesota. Is it because they are competing for some of the same prey? Bobcats will also kill adult Fishers. Forested parts of Minnesota may harbor one Bobcat per six to seven square miles. Lynx, which are better adapted to deep snow, replace Bobcats in the Arrowhead region. This fact really surprised me. Did you know that Lynx on average weigh less than Bobcats? They rarely top 25 pounds while Bobcat Toms can top 40 pounds! It is the very long legs and large feet of a Lynx that gives us the impression of a larger animal. Feeding daily on this carcass for nearly a week, she still is cautious when approaching her “prize.”

                    The Mobile Walking Safaris...an experience that will last a lifetime! Our Mobile Walking Safaris have been operating since 1991 and were the first such walking safaris in Africa. We believe they continue to be totally unique. Combining our safari camps with a five day walk which is backed up by a totally mobile camp - a winning combination for those looking to be totally immersed in the bush. . The tent is "walk in" that open both ends for good ventilation with camp beds, mattress, sheets and blankets. The shower is under a tree and the loo is a short drop with a wooden throne. The dinning table is under the shadiest tree and the bar is a small table with the glasses and drinks, next to a small gas fridge to keep the beers and wine chilled. The food is first class and the same standard as the safari camps. After lunch there is a chance for a rest, read or snooze before afternoon tea. The afternoon walk is gentle, short and often the sundowners will be brought to a meeting spot in the bush by vehicle and so there is a short spotlight drive back to camp. Then in the evening - showers, drinks around the fire before the welcome dinner - usually serenaded by the local lion pride or hyena.
