PotM Calendar

The Photo of the Month (see gallery) is a year round calendar of selected nature images, stories and bios with contributions from visitors, friends and fellow photographers.
 When it comes to nature photography, it's not only those exciting tales of high adventure that often accompany talent and skill for a fabulous result. If a picture is truly worth more than a thousand words then a well-timed shot, or a well framed one, can say just as much about you as a photographer too! So if you'd like to showcase one of your pictures here, free, for one calendar month with a short story on how you managed to come by it, then this page is for you.

The Bare Necessities by Roger Cox
Should you find yourself stranded in the Carpathian, Baltic or Ural mountains, for example, wandering unprepared for whatever the wilderness can throw at you, there’s a tiny possibility of encountering an enormous problem. One so large and terrifying, that its bulk and speed alone is enough to outweigh any fears over food, water and shelter, as well as outpace any attempt to run away!
 Meeting a 270kg bear in the wilderness isn’t something most of us need to worry about, though any concerns we might have regarding one should come from seeing it in captivity. Sadly, our relationship with bears is one fraught with cruelty and persecution – evident from our long and grisly history of trapping, hunting and baiting them for sport, fur and entertainment to the gruesome practise of farming their bile! Given our appalling track record with these hulking intelligent omnivores, it’s not surprising bears fare poorly in captivity, often showing signs of distress through repetitive pacing, bar-biting and swaying from side to side.
 In truth, many zoos lack the necessary space and amenities bears need to live contented lives. However, at the Wildwood Trust, the aim is to give every animal a natural life as possible. Hence this rescued Eurasian brown bear showed none of the troubling signs associated with a cage lacking in those “bear essentials."
 So then, kudos to its keepers for not only this splendid picture of its physical and mental health but an insightful look into a bear’s necessities of life.
