Bears of Abruzzo

Been away for almost a month guiding in Lesvos, surveying in Scotland and bear watching in Italy, hence the lack of posts!
Thought I'd share a couple of bear photos from yesterday where we had an amazing encounter with these two bears. We watched them for an hour, most of that time they were mating!
Abruzzo NP surely has to be one of the best sites in Europe to see bears behaving naturally without visiting an expensive baited bear hide?   Visit for some video


  1. Awesome photos, they put my otter photos to shame.

  2. Cheers Beachy - Good to hear from you. Looks like you had a good time north of the border!
    Be good to catch up.
