Red Deer in Killarney National Park, Kerry, Ireland Red Deer stag and harem, Cervus elaphus, in Killarney National Park, Kerry, Ireland, during the annual rutting season. Native to Ireland since the last ice age, the red deer population dwindled to around 60 at the turn of the 20th century, but thanks to protection and management now number in the hundreds. During the rutting season, the stags gather around 5 hinds into a harem, and give out a loud, deep roar to challenge or ward off other males. Inexplicably, the red deer hinds are still hunted in Ireland, although it's illegal to hunt the stags in Kerry. Copyright 2011 Dave Walsh. All Rights Reserved.

Laughing Kookaburra, Dacelo novaeguineae, at Tom Groggins, Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales, Australia.

Now, I'm sure there's gonna be Australians who wonder why I'm posting such a common bird, but I'm very taken with them. I saw lots of kookaburras while in Australia, but these are my favourite images of what is essentially a huge kingfisher with attitude.

My first encounter was in 2007, a few days after arriving in Australia for my first visit. I was staying at a house in the New South Wales bush, sleeping with only the screen door separating me from the outside world.

In what seemed like the middle of the night I *seemed* to awake to what sounded like a mad person laughing racously in my room, or perhaps even in my head. Maybe I was still asleep. The fright caused me to levitate a good half metre above the mattress.

It was the dawn chorus, lead by at least a brace of kookaburras.

And here's what they sound like:

Dead trees in Lake Hume, Victoria

| No Comments

Dead trees in Lake Hume, Victoria. Driving from the Snowy Mountains pass the town of Tallangatta (which was moved in the 1950s to create this lake) I was really struck by the eerie vision of thousands of dead trees rising above the waters of this man-made lake.


Lake Hume, or Hume Weir, is an artificial lake on the Murray River, east of Albury-Wodonga, and downstream from the river's junction with the Mitta River. Created in the 1930s, it is the furthest downstream of the major reservoirs on the Murray River system, and has the capacity to release water at the fastest rate. As a result, Lake Hume is used by Australian irrigation authorities as the storage of first resort. Lake Hume typically falls to less than one-third of its capacity by March each year, but during normal years fills to at least two-thirds capacity again before November. Changing climatic conditions have caused this to vary in recent years, and in 2007, Lake Hume to an incredible 1% of its capacity, barely more than the water in the Murray and Mitta rivers flowing through it.

Tawny Frogmouth, originally uploaded by Dave Walsh Photography.

Tawny Frogmouth, regarding me disdainfully, while perched on a suburban recyling bin at Smiths Lake, New South Wales. Often mistaken for an owl the frogmouth is actually related to the nightjar (and owls have binocular vision, like humans). While it does have anisodactyl feet (one pointing backwards) like an owl, it doesn't fly to hunt - rather it perches, and waits for it food to come by - insects, frogs and rodents, to come by, then it strikes with its beak.

YES this is a colour image!
Iceberg under cloud, Kangerdlugssuaq Fjord, East Greenland. Taken from the deck of the Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise on 29 August 2009, during an expedition to investigate the effects of climate change in the Arctic.

Btw, the white streaks you can see behind the cloud and the 'berg are actually streaks of snow on a mountain, on the side of the fjord. The images is not desaturated - I just underexposed the hell out of it.

So, it's not a monochrome image. In fact, in Lightroom, the only controls I used were exposure, blacks, lights, darks, and shadows. No colour has been removed or added in the picture, I just shot it 1.6 underexposed in blinding daylight.

Peterman glacier is the longest floating glacier in the northern hemisphere. The floating area is 16km by 80km. A 100 square km chunk, about 5 billion tonnes of ice is about to break off - and we're planning on being there to see it. More at weblog.greenpeace.org/climate

Polar Bear!

Polar Bear!, originally uploaded by Dave Walsh Photography.

Polar Bear checking the water for seals. Photographed from the deck of the Greenpeace Ship Arctic Sunrise, Monday June 29th, at the ice edge of the Lincoln Sea, Arctic Ocean.

Here's an extract from a blog entry I wrote about Monday:


The crew of the Arctic Sunrise is on top of the world today, for many mindblowing reasons. As I write this, the ship is nudged up against the sea ice of the Arctic Ocean at 82.5 north - a latitude higher than any Greenpeace ship has achieved before, as far as we know. A couple of hours after we arrived, and had barely finished breakfast, a young polar bear loped past, seemingly curious and indignant about us unfurry humans gawping at it from our inedible green ship. It had been prowling along the ice edge, looking for seals for breakfast. We later saw evidence that it may have been successful, but I'll spare squeamish readers the details. After such a short time here, it's incredible that we've seen one of the world's most formidable animals, one that is at risk from the lost of sea ice caused by climate change.

Where are we anyway? To the west, in the distance are mountains in the north of Ellesmere Island, and we can just about see the Canadian base at Alert. To the east, the mountains Greenland's top end lie on the horizon. To the south, Nares Strait - the route to Baffin Bay by which we arrived, and to the north - well, there's really only frozen ocean between here and the geographic North Pole. Earlier - with lookouts keeping an eye for polar bears, most of the crew jumped out onto the ice, taking a very short stroll around on the Arctic Ocean, before Nick had us clowning for a crew photograph - with Captain Pete holding a sign that reads "North Pole: 445 miles".

Petermann Glacier from above

| No Comments

Petermann Glacier, seen from above, northwestern Greenland. To get a sense of scale, I'd say you're looking at an area about 1.5km wide.

Photographed from a helicopter on the first leg of the Greenpeace Arctic Impacts expedition 07/07/2009. Peterman glacier is the longest floating glacier in the northern hemisphere. The floating area is 16km by 80km. A 100 square km chunk, about 5 billion tonnes of ice is about to break off - and we're planning on being there to see it.

Twist and turn: Petermann Glacier


Petermann Glacier, near its face, northwestern Greenland. This floating part of the glacier is 80km long, and 16km wide at it's skinniest. The cliffs in the backgrounds are around 1000m high.

Svalbard Global Seed Vault

| No Comments

More pictures here »

Nestled into the rocky waste of plataberget Mountain about Svalbard's airport, the Global Seed Vault is at once startling and innocuous. Designed by architect Peter W. Søderman at Barlindhaug Consulting, this concrete, steel and glass structure is the first layer of security to a repository of millions of seeds from around the world, stored here in case of disaster, disease, or war.

The Svalbard Global Seed Bank is situated 120 metres (390 ft) inside a sandstone
mountain at Longyearbyen on Spitsbergen Island, in the Svalbard archipelago about 1300km from the North Pole. Svalbard was considered ideal for the bank, due to low tectonic activity and its permafrost, which will aid preservation. Even if sea levels rise due to climate change - and the melting of ice caps, the seeds will be safe and dry , as they are stored at a location 130 metres (430 ft) above sea level.

The Svalbard Global Seed Vault provides a safety net against accidental loss of diversity from traditional storage within genebanks around the world, and has a capacity for 4.5 million seeds. Although the media has made much of the "Doomsday Vault's" role in providing security in the face of war or or catastrophe, the operators - the Norwegian government and the Global Crop Diversity Trust and the Nordic Genetic Resource Center - say that it will be most useful when genebanks lose samples due to mismanagement, accident, equipment failures, funding cuts and natural disasters.

Posted to flickr in August 2009 Nanuk: Polar Bear, Ursus Maritimus seen from the deck of the Arctic Sunrise in Kane Basin, North west Greenland. The bear's curiosity drew the ship while it was stationary, in sea ice, just after midnight on Sunday morning. It came very close to the ship, and even looked like it thought about trying to scale the side of the vessel, before playfully rolling about on the ice.
