Incessant rains, crazy winds of Kamchatka, sleeping in damp sleeping bags, gnats and wool lice are inevitable companions of people working in the Kronotsky natural reserve. But there is the other side in their work: they see the most beautiful sunsets and daybreaks, their paths go along picturesque passes and behind scenic waterfalls where people usually don’t get. They are often the witnesses of the most private moments of wild nature.

Animals usually don’t care about people.

Volcanic ash comes from the local volcanoes from time to time. It makes snow and animals look grey and dirty. This hare clears its legs of the ash.
