My name is Brooke Bartleson, and I love animals. No, like, I really, really, REALLY love animals. So much so that I decided to sacrifice a “normal” life in exchange for spending all my time out in the wilderness photographing the beautiful wild animals with which we share this world.

From the polar regions of Northern Canada to the shores of the Alaska Peninsula, all the way through the Rocky Mountains and beyond, I locate and track my wild subjects so I can document their incredible strength and breathtaking beauty.

I am sharing my images with you Bored Pandas in hopes that they will inspire you to help conserve the various threatened wildlife habitats in the world right now. And maybe they will inspire you to venture out into the wild to try your hand at wildlife photography too.

For more photos, check out my Instagram.

Their expressions are fantastic. Probably the best bear shot I have seen so far. Love it. Looks as if they discovered you though. Did you have to run?

Lovely photo, of course. But that apart, don't you think he looks a little goofy? I'd peg his IQ at 45.
