Underwater & Wildlife Photographer Dmitry Kokh Welcomes Us to The House of Bears

Canine Culture



Often in our travels & day trips huMom & I have come across structure other humans have neglected or simply abandoned .  We find them pawsitively intriguing.  What’s is often so dog gone interesting are the new occupants.  Usually it’s mice, moles, Squirrels! or raccoons but one time we came across a deer inside a building with only 3 sides.  From our pawspective it was as though it was going about it’s business of house cleaning.  Today’s photographer Demitry Kokh created a photo series that features a small group of polar bears that had taken over an abandoned meteorological station last fall. The dilapidated structures are located between Russia & Alaska on Kolyuchin Island in the Chukchi Sea, a remote tundra the Moscow-based photographer visited on a 1,200-mile expedition in September 2021.

The weather station was built in 1932 & then retired in the 90s. The station, like the land around it is unoccupied by humans. The island itself is only 2.8 miles at its longest stretch. When Demitry & his crew were passing the island they saw movement amongst the deserted buildings.  Using drones Demitry was able to capture these wagnificent photos.  He also created a short video you must check out.

I will stop yapping & let you have a look at these furbulous pieces.  Remember to to click on the 3.12 minute video Polar bears on Kolyuchin Island, Chukotka, Russia.

Have a wagnificent weekend! Remember to be gnawsome, be kind & stay safe.
