I can't think of a more pleasant sight in the garden on a cold morning. The European Robin (Erithacus rubecula), known simply as the Robin or Robin Redbreast in the British Isles.  The male and female bear similar plumage; an orange breast and face, lined by a bluish grey on the sides of the neck and chest. The upperparts are brownish, or olive-tinged in British birds, and the belly whitish, while the legs and feet are brown. The bill and eyes are black. DID YOU KNOW : The robin’s red breast is part of what endears it to us, providing a welcome flash of colour on a winter’s day. But its evolutionary purpose is for a more serious role, with male robins using it to settle territorial disputes, especially during the breeding season. A dispute starts with males singing at each other, trying to get a higher perch in order to show off their breast most effectively. This usually ends the challenge, with one individual deferring to the other. Sometimes it can escalate to a fight, which can result in injury or death. In some populations, up to 10 per cent of adult mortality is due to clashes over territory. This is the reason why robins are born without a red breast, and don’t acquire it until their first moult. #rspb_love_nature #animalsofinstagram #animal_captures #animals_in_world #splendid_animals #animalscaptures #animal_fanatics #animalelite  #animal_sultans   #wildlifephotography #birdphotography  #wildlifephoto  #wildlifelovers #birding #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #birdsofinstagram #photooftheday #RSPB #canon #snappyBeaks #nature #birds #gardenbirds #animals #robin

Common Kestrel in Flight⠀ ⠀ The Common Kestrel is one of my favorite birds of prey. Not much larger than a dove, this brave raptor is an amazing flying machine - able to both fly at incredible speeds and stay in the same spot in the air, using rapid wing-movement. As such it can be quite challenging to catch in the frame when in the air at times.⠀ ⠀ this photo shows a female (females are a bit larger and have the same pattern on their heads as on the rest of their bodies, whereas males have grey heads), in flight, in a partially frontal view. This was not an easy photo to take!⠀ ⠀ What do I like about this photo? The beautiful subject, and the incredible pose, showing the determination in the eyes and the endless wings in full spread. The background is interesting, but blurred out, as I was using an open aperture (f/5.1 - the most open my lens supports at the focal length of 200mm that I used) to create a shallow depth of field. There's quite a bit of details on the bird and especially on the wings.⠀ ⠀ What would I want to improve? The focus on the head is not spot-on. More details would have been available had the camera nailed the focus perfectly.⠀ ⠀ https://buff.ly/2tyVL3y⠀ ⠀ #microfourthirdsgallery #naturephotography #naturephoto #nature_or_nothing #nature #wildlifephotography #wildlifephoto #wildlifeonearth #wildlife_supreme #naturephotograph #naturelovers #naturelover #animals #animal #animalkingdom #animalphotography #animalphotos #animalphoto #instagood #photooftheday #picoftheday #like4like #animalsofinstagram #NaturesApparel #wildlife_seekers #animal_captures #nature_brilliance #photographytips #bestpicsaround@snapshot__img

Feeling observed... 😂 For once it is not me to watch the giraffes but it is them watching me 😂 🦒 Part of my job as a ranger is to make sure that the environment is in balance. Removing alien plants (in this case Thorny apples) is important as they take space and water that the indigenous vegetation need to prosper. Who wants to come to help me? 💪🏼🦁🐢🦉🦅🐆🦓🐘🦒🦋🌱 . . . . #giraffe #conservation #wildlife #monitoring #nature #animal #naturelovers #wildlifephotography #family #gapyear #instagood #bestoftheday #love #photooftheday #mountain #beautiful #work #girl #sustainable #happy #canon #travel #travelgram #AfricaGeoPhoto #landscape #adventure #animal_captures #friends

Dieser Turmfalke lag heute bei meinen Schwiegereltern auf der Terrasse. Da war schnelles Handeln angesagt, denn er konnte seine Beine nicht mehr benutzen. Nach einem Anruf bei der NABU wurde ich jäh enttäuscht, da der Herr wohl krank war und sich auch nicht zuständig fühlte, und mir geraten hat ich sollte in den Zoo fahren. Also habe ich den armen Kerl in eine Decke gepackt und bin ins Tierheim gefahren. Dort wird der Tierarzt nach ihm schauen und ich hoffe, daß er alles übersteht. 🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅 #claro_huels #claro_tiere #nc_cuties #picturetokeep_birds_animals #kings_animals_love #raw_allanimals #raw_birds #loves_united_animals #lory_and_pet #la_animals #fauna_police #animlslife #world_bestanimal #animal_captures #wild_mania_ #total_fauna #shots_of_animals #pocket_animal_ #lory_vintageandcountry #rural_love #raw_country #total_mybrown #hdr_country #raw_allnature #asi_es_rural #hey_ihadtosnapthat #raw_moody #

Hey Leute! Ich habe ja letztens noch darüber in meinem Video gesprochen, wie ihr auch mit einem Standardzoom (bzw. ohne Telezoom) schöne Tierfotos geshootet bekommt. 📸 Dabei bin ich auch darauf eingegangen, dass Fotos mit einem Telezoom leicht "langweilig" aussehen können. Dieses Foto ist einmal das perfekte Gegenstück dazu! Denn hier sieht man sie Stärken eines Telezooms! So nah an einen schlafenden Fuchs würde man mit 70mm eher selten kommen 😂 PS: Das YouTube - Video ist in meiner Bio verlinkt 😋 Sony Alpha α7II + Tamron 70-210 f/4 #animal_captures #animals_in_world #animal_fanatics #animalelite #wildlifephotography #wildlifephoto #natgeowild #photooftheday #animallover #animalphotography #artofvisuals #sonyimages #sonyalpha #sonyalphasclub #sonyphotogallery #sonyalpha7ii #tamron2875 #withmytamron #alphacollective #earthfocus #electric_shotz #bealpha #reportersoul #moodygrams #moody_nature #deinnrw #reviewedbypaul #all_animal_addiction @sonyworldclub @sonyimages @sonyalpha @sonyalphapro @eclectic_shotz @global_exposures @artofvisuals @creativeoptic @depths.of.earth @earthfocus @moodygrams @tamron_deutschland @tamronusa @killaframez @reportersoul @deinnrw @fox.community @all_animals_addiction // Werbung wegen Markennennung

This is just Great 💙 - Hermit crabs are crustaceans. They have jointed limbs, claws, a hard exoskeleton, eyes on stalks, and two sets of antennae. #AnimalFact - Crabs interact with each other and are often found in large groups. Marine hermit crabs live in the ocean and land hermit crabs live primarily on land. The hermit crab is not like other crabs. The hermit crab’s abdomen does not have a hard covering. To protect the abdomen, a hermit crab inhabits an empty snail shell. The shell also stores water for the crab. Hermit crabs have gills that need to remain moist in order for them to breath.

Walking in nature will never get old. This is from yesterday morning when I spotted the coyote a second time. He crossed my path on the trail making his way to the woods. He wasn't scared but he also had no intention to interact. I hung back and watched him disappear thinking he was gone, but as my shot yesterday shows I saw him once more. It is an exhilarating feeling being close to an animal seldom seen.

Red fox in Baden-Württemberg, Germany (Rotfuchs in Baden-Württemberg, DE) This red fox suddenly crossed my path. He/she was pretty confused about my appearance since I was wearing my camouflage suit. Since you say that foxes are pretty smart, this one was not trusting my appearance at the end and walked away 😉 . . . . . #fox #foxes #wild #wildlife #wildanimals #wildlifeonearth #world_bestanimal #discoverearth #nature #natureperfection #exclusive_wildlife #nikon #photograpy #live_love_wildlife #exklusiv_shot #fantastic_earth #animalelite #nature_cuties #wildgeography #shots_of_animals #animal_captures #bestnatureshot #stunning_wildlife_daily #wanderlust #featured_wildlife #wildlifeplanet #earthcapture #all_animals_addiction

What a View. It was a bumpy, rocky drive up from Kicheche Bush Camp to reach the top of this hill, but we were well rewarded at the top, with a spectacular view over Olare Motorogi, and graced with the presence of the local lion pride. ⁣⠀ #amazingafrica #africansafari #safari #safarijunkies @amazingafricasafaris #igafrica #view #olaremotorogi #masaimara #lion #waterhole #landscape @gearykenya @kicheche_bush_camp
