Okavango lions are known for their swimming rather than their tree-climbing abilities but we’re seeing this behavior more often at Duba Plains. There are numerous dead trees, uprooted in previous vicious storms that these lions are increasingly using. The lionesses are using them to gain advantages in hunting but this big male just seemed to be watching - perhaps keeping an eye on his territory. Unfortunately for him, his legs are not built like a leopard’s and he went too high to be able to comfortably descend. After a lot of shuffling, he tried to climb down but his weight was too much and he slipped, falling a great height. @dereckjoubert and I rushed over to check on him, thinking he would have hurt himself seriously, but thankfully it was his dignity that suffered and not his bones. It will be interesting to see if he tries to climb any great height again. #okavangolions #tsaropride #bigcats #thisismytrophy

The predator instinct kicks in for Fig’s cub, despite the fact that her mother has provided this meal. There’s still time to practice some pouncing techniques before eating, and this practice is the start of her education in learning to hunt for herself. #figtheleopard #maasaimara #Figscub #bigcats #thisismytrophy

It looks like a snarl but is in fact a response to pheromones known as the flehmen response. This is seen in a number of mammals and most cats (including house cats), and allows them to check the reproductive or territorial status of others. Both males and females will bare their teeth like this when they come across a scent that will give them a chemical signal. This dominant male is testing the pheromones in the urine of a female who is coming into oestrus and, after sensing her readiness, will be following her very closely. #BigCats #Flehmen #ThisIsMyTrophy #FelineCanines @ilcp_photographers

A successful hunt for the Tsaro male who has managed to catch one of Duba Plains’ numerous red lechwes. The male lechwes have been fighting for dominance but unfortunately for them, the clash of horns alerts the lions to their presence and the fact that their attention is focused elsewhere.The lion’s cub follows closely behind, learning more about survival every day. #thisismytrophy #okavangolions #tsaropride #redlechwe #malelionsdohunt

A day to celebrate the most remarkable, adaptable, stealthy and gorgeous cats. Happy #InternationalLeopardDay. It was a young leopard who gave @dereckjoubert and I the full push into campaigning for big cats and protecting their habitats. #Legadema shared so much of herself and amazingly we’re seeing a very similar relationship with a leopard named Fig’s young daughter who has also decided that we are allowed to share her space and intimacy. But, seeing that leopards have lost up to 75% of their historical habitat, we will keep working to protect these great cats and their environment so that she will not be amongst the last of them. #thisismytrophy #bigcats #leopard

Keeping a possessive paw on his kill while he gets his breath back. The Duba Plains lions were famed for their buffalo hunts, but the lechwe population has bounced back so extraordinarily well, these antelope now make up a significant portion of their diet. #okavangolions #bigcats #thisismytrophy

Isn’t he magnificent? So I shot him repeatedly - with my camera. I’ll likely do so again tomorrow and many days after that because there is always the possibility of getting a better photograph of him. #thisismytrophy #worthmorealive #bigcats #causeanuproar

Those little paws are just itching for a game. A cub this size will sleep a great deal, but when awake and under his mother’s protection, he’s going to be a handful of mischief! #littlebigcats #lions #maasaimara #thisismytrophy

#Repost from @beverlyjoubert // Those yellow-green eyes miss nothing around her - even on a gloomy, rainy day. This is the young 'Figlet', daughter to the Maasai Mara's infamous Fig. She's heading for her 2nd birthday and is successfully hunting for herself. With the rains having started, the area will quickly transform into an emerald haven and baby antelope will appear en masse. This should be a good time for Figlet to improve her hunting skills and complete her independence. Her mother will have instilled the importance of trees and the safety that they provide from lions and hyaenas. She may be a small leopard, but Figlet has immense strength and will be able to carry her kills up into the branches where she will be able to eat at leisure - a luxury not available to many predators. #ThisIsMyTrophy #BigCats #leopardportrait #figlet

Early morning, we left our camp, following the river which just hours before had been filled with noisy hippos keeping us awake. She was surveying her territory, considering whether to hunt. She was trailed by a massive male and we marveled at the early morning light that illuminated their profiles. . . . @wildgeography #featured_wildlife #africageophoto #africanamazing #majestic_wildlife_ #live_love_wildlife #intothewild #bestplacestogo #traveldeeper #letsgosomewhere #conservation #conservationphotography #summitworkshopsalumni #whyilovekenya #worthmorealive #thisismytrophy #nikon #nikonartists #d810 #hireafemalephotographer #femalephotographer #lion #lioness #bigcats

A young ‘Figlet’ investigates a channel crossing that has flooded following some big rains in the #maasaimara. She is the infamous Fig’s daughter and is now independent and hunting for herself. If she’s anything like her mother, she’ll be formidable and will have been taught the importance of trees as places of safety in this lion-rich area. But the ground is where the food is and she’ll need to navigate around this sudden deep water. All the animals know that while water is essential, it holds hidden dangers. #figlet #thisismytrophy #leopard #bigcats #kenya #stormwater

Photo by @beverlyjoubert | Intense focus from lionesses from the Tsaro Pride in the Okavango and a look that means business. Lions spend the vast majority of their days asleep in the shade but when they are active they are phenomenal to see. The Tsaro Pride have long adapted to their watery environment and become daytime hunters, focusing their attention on the large herds of buffalo that pass through Duba Plains, and more recently, the swamp adapted red lechwe whose population is growing healthily. It is these antelope that have caught the attention of the lions. Despite the open plains and the deep water channels, these big cats are well used to hunting in these difficult conditions and their great condition is a definite testament to their abilities. #ThisIsMyTrophy #bigcats #causeanuproar #OkavangoLions #TsaroPride

Delighted to see the launch of the new identity for the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Thanks to my friends at Grey London and whiteGREY Sydney for all their hard work over the past two years, and to @dswt for the wonderful work they do to rescue orphaned elephants (and other animals), reintegrate them into wild populations in Kenya’s Tsavo National Park, and protect those wild animals. For more information on the Trust’s work, visit www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org, where a new website will be launched in the next few days. The accompanying pictures on this post were taken on my recent trip to the @dswt’s Nairobi Nursery, And the Ithumba and Voi reintegration centres. Spot Lulu, one of 30 elephants born in the wild to ex-orphan mothers - the Trust’s crowning achievement. . . #dswt #elephants #thisismytrophy #tsavo #tsavoeast #ivorybelongstoelephants #kenya #protect #endangeredspecies #wildlife #saveelephants

#Repost @natgeo • • • • • Photo by @beverlyjoubert | She's a phenomenal hunter in perfect condition. Like all Okavango lions, her muscles are highly developed from running through water on a daily basis and she is bigger than most lions found in other areas. It is not possible to live in this wet environment without learning to incorporate the water into following prey species and being successful in hunting them. She currently has small cubs tucked away from the rest of the pride and is hunting on her own. @dereckjoubert and I have watched her stalking red lechwe in the deep swamps for hours. She doesn't stop until she is successful. With the very high numbers of lechwe around the island, she also doesn't need to hunt at night and indeed seems to be getting up later and later in the day - often hunting around mid-day. We used to stay with these lions from pre-dawn to film their hunts, but we're learning that right now, when the sun is rising, we too can rest with her. She's not going to move if she doesn't need to. #thisismytrophy #okavangolions #bigcats #dubaplains

Foto por @beverlyjoubert | Los titanes de las sabanas africanas luchan, mostrando su fuerza a un orgullo de leones que observan de cerca. Los elefantes adultos no necesitan temer a los leones, excepto en circunstancias extremas, como una grave sequía cuando se debilitan. Pero los leones probarán su suerte con crías o elefantes jóvenes y, como resultado, estos gatos no son bien tolerados por el rebaño y son perseguidos a menudo. En este momento, están muy conscientes de la presencia del otro, y aunque esta escena es pacífica, todos saben que el respeto es merecido por ambos lados. . #ThisIsMyTrophy #OkavangoLions #TsaroPride #BigCats #bigcat #cats #cat #animals #animales #nature #adventure #naturaleza #landscape #photo #foto #retrato #portrait #africa #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wild #landscapephotographic #afrika #okavango #lions #elephant #elefante #nacgeo

In Finland, over 70 % of the country is covered by forest which is more than any other European country. It is so well managed that the growth rate exceeds the total timber harvest🌳🌳🌳 Way to go!

I met a new elephant friend last night. She likes this image and since she’s an expert, I figured it was worth reposting. And seriously, she’s so cool-she’s a zookeeper that takes care of elephants!!!!! I mean, really, don’t we all want to be her?! Not only does she get to see elephants every.single.day, but she goes to sleep every night knowing she’s doing something important for elephant conservation. Zoos do amazing work on rare animal reproduction and play critical roles in other important parts of the conservation network. Sometimes they don’t get enough credit .... . . . @wildgeography #featured_wildlife #africageophoto #africanamazing #majestic_wildlife_ #live_love_wildlife #intothewild #bestplacestogo #traveldeeper #letsgosomewhere #conservation #conservationphotography #summitworkshopsalumni #whyilovekenya #worthmorealive #thisismytrophy #nikon #nikonartists #d810 #hireafemalephotographer #femalephotographer #zoo #zookeeper #handsoffourivory #elephantdayeveryday #elephant

Portrait of a coal miner in one if India's largest coal mining regions in the state of Jharkhand. President Trump's climate adviser at the COP24 climate conference in Poland recently argued that the developing world would be reliant on fossil fuels for sometime and it was in the worlds interest to find more efficient ways to develop and burn those fossil fuels. It is a sad reality that world leaders insist on the continued use of dirty fuels that poison our lives and environment. Rather than advocating for a shift away from fossil fuels that will improve the lives of billions and contribute to the betterment of the environment; we are stuck with rhetoric that has been the norm for decades. The lack of political will to change has put the world on a ticking time bomb. Many of the effects of climate change and pollution are already being felt from respiratory illness, drought, and extreme weather events.

Raise your trunk if you're curious. Elephants do this quite often while trying to smell surrounding area. May it be female ready to mate or just your regular tourists. I was fortunate to get this picture of entire family getting curious at my car. . . . . . . . #elephants #pictureoftheday #nikon #botswana #wildlifephotography #photography #thisismytrophy #newyork #nyc

The titans of the African savannahs form a formidable line of defense in front of a pride of lions who watch closely. Grown elephants do not need to fear lions - except in exceptional circumstances such as severe drought when they are weakened. But lions will try their luck with baby or juvenile elephants and as a result, these cats are not well-tolerated by the herd and are often chased.

Male giraffe checks to see if female is ready to mate or "in season", also known as flehmen response. If she is, then he'll follow her around and will try to keep other males at bay. That is, ladies and gentlemen, how giraffe babies are made! Happy Holidays! . . . . . . #tistheseason #giraffe #mating #africa #botswana #pictureoftheday #wildlifephotography #photography #wildlife #nikon #newyorker #thisismytrophy

How does one photograph the grandeur of an elephant? Do you zoom out to capture their gargantuan size or zoom in for their intricate detail. They are so interactive with each other. Do you focus on an individual or the entire herd. I don’t have the answers to any of these questions. All I have is the above. Elephants. They are the magic of Africa. #thisismytrophy
