I’m thankful today for the community of outdoor photographers. Teaching each other where to find the gems, and participating in the movement of appreciation for the natural world. I had no idea the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado even existed until the great man dune of @chrisburkard showed me the way, and the ripple effect will inspire someone else to go find this beautiful place. #greatsanddunesnationalpark #natgeo #colorado

Anglesea flow. I knew the tide was a bit too high for me to comfortably stand out here, but i also knew it was on its way out and i just had to be quick to pull the camera out of harms way and brace myself for the bigger waves trying to knock me off my feet. The people watching from the beach thought it was pretty funny anyway

Bombay duck, or bombil as it is called locally, is one of Mumbai's polarising culinary experiences. This charmingly misnamed delicacy is actually a fish, whose pungent odour is part of that special love-it-or-hate it-Mumbai smell. It got its name in the days of the Raj, from being transported on an iconic train, the Bombay Daak, daak being the Hindi word for mail. The term was then bastardised to duck, which stuck. . #_soimumbai #streetsofmumbai #indiaclicks #seebombaymyway #maibhisadakchap #MyMumbai #storiesofindia #lonelyplanetindia #igramming_india #bbctravel #earthcapture #canonusa #canon_india #spiCollective #artofvisuals #indianphotography #mumbai_igers #beautifuldestinations #indiapictures #NGTIndia #Yourshotphotographer #mypixeldiary #streetphotographyindia #cnntravel #streetphotographymumbai

Good morning and Hello again my friends. Here is spider number three for you. It’s a philodromid crab spider or running crab spider ( #Philodromidae). If you have a more accurate ID, please let me know it. Maybe @timheller99 , who is a living spider database ? Check him out! Had to crop this shot a bit, as this spider is pretty small (5mm). It’s sitting on the stem of a small stinging nettle. . I also want to say hi to all the new followers, and the old ones too. Thank you all! This weekend is my working weekend, so it’s a bit hard to keep up with all the comments. I truly appreciate every single one, even if i miss to answer some of them. I’ll try my best to answer them all. . Enjoy your Sundays ladies and gentlemen! .

The laughing dove (Spilopelia senegalensis) is a small pigeon that is a resident breeder in Africa, the Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent. This small long-tailed dove is found in dry scrub and semi-desert habitats where pairs can often be seen feeding on the ground. A rufous and black chequered necklace gives it a distinctive pattern and is also easily distinguished from other doves by its call. Other names include laughing turtle dove, palm dove and Senegal dove while in India the name of the little brown dove is often used. It was introduced in Western Australia and has established itself in the wild around Perth and Fremantle.

Lundi après midi je suis retournée chercher les chamois, il y avait du brouillard ils étaient montés plus haut que la dernière fois et étaient donc plus difficiles à observer, en redescendant j'ai entendu des bruits de pas dans la neige, j'ai regardé au dessus de moi et j'ai vu ce joli chamois solitaire qui grattais la neige pour trouver quelques pousses! je l'ais observé un moment avant qu'il ne fasse nuit #WildGeography #naturelovers #wildlife_inspired #canon #animalelite #featured_wildlife #wildlifephotography #mountain #chamois #intothewild #wild #earthcapture #wildlifeplanet #wildlife #shots_of_animals #natgeoyourshot #myauvergnerhonealpes

A series of (un)fortunate events led to this frame. We were watching the six pack boys in first light and were about to move the LandCruiser about 400m away to follow one of them as he was walking away. Unfortunately our car didn’t start due to an issue we picked up from the big rocks from following Siri the day before. So we took advantage of this dead time and just our luck that one of the six pack (there were 5 of them there) got up exactly between the rising sun and myself and I had a couple of seconds to get this frame. As they say, you create your own luck!

A species I was very excited to see in North QLD was the endangered Australian Lace-lid (Litoria dayi)! There were quite a few of these frogs sitting on the rocks of a flowing rainforest creek. We ended up finding many other species of frogs, snakes and geckos that night. @tropicalcol tropicalcol. #lacelid #litoriadayi #endangered

🦈 THE GREAT ONE 🦈 With all the publicity going around with @oceanramsey and @oneoceanconservation swimming with the great white #shark this week, I think it’s important to remember some crucial facts. These people are experienced professionals when it comes to handling sharks. Years of study, time and effort has gone into a moment like this, and there’s always more to it than appears on the surface. Although I would never recommend swimming with or touching such immense predators, I am in awe of those that can do so safely and respectfully. I believe It’s important to consider the affect you’re having on these creatures, so if anyone is interested in seeing these beautiful #sharks for yourselves, @adventurebaycharters in South #Australia will show you how to see these sharks with minimal impact. The only bait and Burley free tour operator in the world 💙🦈

[Iztuzu 2018🏖🏞] 3-The Life of NOAH [1th ASPECT] 11:43. [But] he said, "I will take refuge on a mountain to protect me from the water." [Noah] said, "There is no protector today from the decree of Allah, except for whom He gives mercy." And the waves came between them, and he was among the drowned. 44. And it was said, "O earth, swallow your water, and O sky, withhold [your rain]." And the water subsided, and the matter was accomplished, and the ship came to rest on the [mountain of] Judiyy. And it was said, "Away with the wrongdoing people." 45. And Noah called to his Lord and said, "My Lord, indeed my son is of my family; and indeed, Your promise is true; and You are the most just of judges!" 46. He said, "O Noah, indeed he is not of your family; indeed, he is [one whose] work was other than righteous, so ask Me not for that about which you have no knowledge. Indeed, I advise you, lest you be among the ignorant." 47. [Noah] said, "My Lord, I seek refuge in You from asking that of which I have no knowledge. And unless You forgive me and have mercy upon me, I will be among the losers." 48. It was said, "O Noah, disembark in security from Us and blessings upon you and upon nations [descending] from those with you. But other nations [of them] We will grant enjoyment; then there will touch them from Us a painful punishment." 49. That is from the news of the unseen which We reveal to you, [O Muhammad]. You knew it not, neither you nor your people, before this. So be patient; indeed, the [best] outcome is for the righteous . 11 HUD [HUD] HOLY QUR’AN . . . . . #hiking #beautifuldesinations #folkgood #awesome_earthpix #zeiss #ourplanetdaily #photooftheday #earthcapture #discoverearth #norcalhiking #awesomeglobe #river #naturephotography #living_destinations #takemoreadventures #ournaturedays #hiker #creativeoptic #hike #hikelife #earthpix #total_nature #world_great #world_bestnature #nationalparks #mountainlove #mountainlovers #landscape #mountain #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily . @earthfocus @bergwelten @germanroamers @naturegramy @nature

[Iztuzu 2018🏖🏞] 2-The Life of NOAH [1th ASPECT] 11:35. Or do they say [about Prophet Muhammad], "He invented it"? Say, "If I have invented it, then upon me is [the consequence of] my crime; but I am innocent of what [crimes] you commit." 36. And it was revealed to Noah that, "No one will believe from your people except those who have already believed, so do not be distressed by what they have been doing. 37. And construct the ship under Our observation and Our inspiration and do not address Me concerning those who have wronged; indeed, they are [to be] drowned." 38. And he constructed the ship, and whenever an assembly of the eminent of his people passed by him, they ridiculed him. He said, "If you ridicule us, then we will ridicule you just as you ridicule. 39. And you are going to know who will get a punishment that will disgrace him [on earth] and upon whom will descend an enduring punishment [in the Hereafter]." 40. [So it was], until when Our command came and the oven overflowed, We said, "Load upon the ship of each [creature] two mates and your family, except those about whom the word has preceded, and [include] whoever has believed." But none had believed with him, except a few. 41. And [Noah] said, "Embark therein; in the name of Allah is its course and its anchorage. Indeed, my Lord is Forgiving and Merciful." 42. And it sailed with them through waves like mountains, and Noah called to his son who was apart [from them], "O my son, come aboard with us and be not with the disbelievers." 11 HUD [HUD] HOLY QUR’AN [2018 Summer] . . . . . . #hiking #beautifuldesinations #folkgood #awesome_earthpix #zeiss #ourplanetdaily #photooftheday #earthcapture #discoverearth #norcalhiking #awesomeglobe #river #naturephotography #living_destinations #takemoreadventures #ournaturedays #hiker #creativeoptic #hike #hikelife #earthpix #total_nature #world_great #world_bestnature #nationalparks #mountainlove #mountainlovers #landscape #mountain #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily . @earthfocus @bergwelten @germanroamers @naturegramy @nature

[2018] 1-The Life of NOAH [1th ASPECT] 11:25. And We had certainly sent Noah to his people, [saying], " Indeed, I am to you a clear warner 26. That you not worship except Allah . Indeed, I fear for you the punishment of a painful day." 27. So the eminent among those who disbelieved from his people said, " We do not see you but as a man like ourselves, and we do not see you followed except by those who are the lowest of us [and] at first suggestion. And we do not see in you over us any merit; rather, we think you are liars." 28. He said, "O my people have you considered: if I should be upon clear evidence from my Lord while He has given me mercy from Himself but it has been made unapparent to you, should we force it upon you while you are averse to it? 29. And O my people, I ask not of you for it any wealth. My reward is not but from Allah . And I am not one to drive away those who have believed. Indeed, they will meet their Lord, but I see that you are a people behaving ignorantly. 30. And O my people, who would protect me from Allah if I drove them away? Then will you not be reminded? 31. And I do not tell you that I have the depositories [containing the provision] of Allah or that I know the unseen, nor do I tell you that I am an angel, nor do I say of those upon whom your eyes look down that Allah will never grant them any good. Allah is most knowing of what is within their souls. Indeed, I would then be among the wrongdoers." 32. They said, "O Noah, you have disputed us and been frequent in dispute of us. So bring us what you threaten us, if you should be of the truthful." 33. He said, " Allah will only bring it to you if He wills, and you will not cause [Him] failure. 34. And my advice will not benefit you - although I wished to advise you - If Allah should intend to put you in error. He is your Lord, and to Him you will be returned." 11 HUD / QUR’AN . . . . #hiking #beautifuldesinations #folkgood #awesome_earthpix #zeiss #ourplanetdaily #photooftheday #earthcapture #discoverearth #norcalhiking #awesomeglobe #river #naturephotography #living_destinations #takemoreadventures #ournaturedays #hiker #creativeoptic #hike #hikelife #earthpix #total_nature #nature

Another new species for my account, the metallic starling (Aplonis Metallica). These beautiful black birds turn totally colourful when the sun catches them at the correct angle. Each year, they come all the way from New Guinea to build their nests here in the Wet Tropics. Like weaver birds of Africa, these guys are quite social with several nests so close to each other than they look like condominiums of nests. . . . . . . . . #instabird #kings_birds #aves #bird_brillance #eye_spy_bird #birdfreaks #bns_nature #bns_birds #earthcapture #birdlife #magic_shots #eye_for_earth #birdextreme #野鳥 #birdlover #excellent_nature #planetbirds #ig_brillant #natuurfotografie #birds_adored #bb_of_ig #splendid_nature #udog_feathers #oiseau #ig_discover_birdslife #birds_captures #ornithology #passaros #ig_birdwatchers

Continuing the adventure of adding new species to my snap collection here in North Queensland .... I went to visit Cattana Wetlands, gifted by a farmer to the Cairns community on the understanding that it remain a wetland for wildlife to live in and the community to enjoy ... what a brilliant idea for biodiversity conservation. Here I met my next unique new specie, the Orange Footed Scrubfowl. The size of a small Australian bush turkey, the scrubfowl is also mostly land bound. It is the gardener up here. Due to the heavy showers these few days and it being almost nightfall, I actually found this one preparing to roost in the low branch of a tree for the evening . . . . . . . #instabird #kings_birds #aves #bird_brillance #eye_spy_bird #birdfreaks #bns_nature #bns_birds #earthcapture #birdlife #magic_shots #eye_for_earth #birdextreme #野鳥 #birdlover #excellent_nature #planetbirds #ig_brillant #natuurfotografie #birds_adored #bb_of_ig #splendid_nature #udog_feathers #oiseau #ig_discover_birdslife #birds_captures #ornithology #passaros #ig_birdwatchers

Up in Far North Queensland, it is the rainy season so the sky is drab and it practical rained in and out all day. Quite dismal in some ways ... that is until this morning I was woken up by these unique call of friar birds. Not Noisy Friarbird like those at Yamba earlier in the year but Silver Crowned Friarbird (Philemon Argenticeps) endemic to North Queensland and spotting that "almost bald hairdo" with salt and pepper edges. All friarbirds are honeyeaters. Let the adventure with wildlife in Far North Queensland begin. Let's see how many new species I can add to this gallery and what we can learn about local wildlife and biodiversity conservation here. . . . . . . . #instabird #kings_birds #aves #bird_brillance #eye_spy_bird #birdfreaks #bns_nature #bns_birds #earthcapture #birdlife #magic_shots #eye_for_earth #birdextreme #野鳥 #birdlover #excellent_nature #planetbirds #ig_brillant #natuurfotografie #birds_adored #bb_of_ig #splendid_nature #udog_feathers #oiseau #ig_discover_birdslife #birds_captures #ornithology #passaros #ig_birdwatchers

It is not everyday that I get this lucky. I was watching a community of crested terns coming home from their fishing trip on this big flat rock at the edge of the ocean with sea spray everywhere when these two crested terns began a mating dance. They were the only pair and were at the edge closest to me. Their eyes met, the crests became mohawk and they began mirroring each other moves. First of three panels here show the moment they locked eyes. . .

The straw necked ibis, one of three Australian species of ibises is also relatively monochromatic except that it's wing feathers may have a shiny sheen.

The oriental dollar bird (eurystomus orientalism) is a member of the roller family. This one is endemic from India to Australia and is a distinctively colourful bird with a heavy bill that is so often seen but when it is, it's perched on a branch in full sight. This one had just swallowed a huge cicada ago so it was content to pose for a portrait. . . . . . . . . #instabird #kings_birds #aves #bird_brillance #eye_spy_bird #birdfreaks #bns_nature #bns_birds #earthcapture #birdlife #magic_shots #eye_for_earth #birdextreme #野鳥 #birdlover #excellent_nature #planetbirds #ig_brillant #natuurfotografie #birds_adored #bb_of_ig #splendid_nature #udog_feathers #oiseau #ig_discover_birdslife #birds_captures #ornithology #passaros #ig_birdwatchers
