Photo by @jameskydd In broad daylight this hyena chased down an adult wildebeest (three times its own weight) from a herd, and then pulled it to ground alone before the other two arrived.A phenomenal display of athleticism, strength and confidence.There arefewplaces on earth where both life and death occur in such measure as the Mara. #wildliferefuge #animals #wildlifefestival #wildlifephotos #wildlifeofinstagram #global4nature #wildlifeconservation #animal #wildlife_india #animalelite #wildlifesafari #wildlifetrust #wildlife_perfection #natgeowild #wildliferescue #wildlifeprotection #wildlifephotography #wildlifeofaustralia #wildlifeperfection #animalfanatics #love_africa #animal_sultans #wildlife_aroundworld #igswildlife #wildlifesanctuary #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephotographer #splendid_animals #wu_africa #wildlife_supreme

I'm briefly back on land from Antarctica Expedition #1 completed and now about 8 hours from heading back to sea to begin number 2 voyage with just enough time for a quick post. Each voyage to Antarctica always feels new and exciting with so much to see, with penguins always a highlight. Among the numerous penguin species, Adelie penguins are super fun to watch. The Adélie penguin got it's name from the French Antarctic explorer, Jules Dumont d'Urville. On discovering these sea birds in 1840 he decided to name them after his beloved wife – Adéle. The scientific name for the Adélie penguin is Pygoscelis adeliae. Pygoscelis means ‘rump-legged’, but the genus is better known as 'brush-tailed penguins'. The Adélie is the littlest species of penguin in the Antarctic. It might look cute and a bit clumsy on land but don’t be fooled, these birds are feisty and pack a lot of attitude into their little size. They’ve been known to take on potential predators – seals or large seabirds – or even attack visiting researchers with their flippers. Not only do they excel at feistiness, they are also exceptionally good divers. When diving for food for themselves and to feed their chicks, Adélies can hold their breath for up to six minutes and frequently reach 150m. However, they can dive deeper. The deepest recorded dive by an Adélie penguin is 180m. As someone who loves the water and free diving, I'm pretty impressed. . . . . . . . . #wildlifephotography #adeliepenguin #penguin #antarctica #animals_captures #wildlifephoto #earthfocus #wildlifephotographybird #WildlifePhotographyTours #wildlifephotographyoftheyear #wildlife #cheesemansecologysafaris #nature #naturephotography #macrophotography #browneyes #bird #freediver #wildlifeplanet #natgeowild #natgeo #natgeopl #natgeowild_hd #natgeopioftheday #natgeoyourshot #natgeopix #wildlifeperfection #natgeohub #natgeowildlife

Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend @waterwayjay‘s presentation put on by @mncanoe. If you’re not familiar with Jay and his #paddleforprogress project he’s paddling 4,500 miles of Minnesota’s water trails to raise awareness of the threats facing the health of our state’s freshwater ecosystems. He quit his job and spent the past two years paddling all over the state to work towards this goal! - One of the many things I learned during his presentation was that anyone can help monitor our water. Our family is going to sign up to monitor a lake near our house for the summer through the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Citizen Water Monitoring program. It’ll be a great way to make sure we’re consistently getting out in our canoe while also teaching our children about the health of our lakes. - To learn more about Jay and his project watch his 7 minute short film from @adventuremnfilms. Link in our bio or search YouTube for “Waterway Jay”. Our kids watched it with me this morning and loved it so much they were asking when we could get the canoe out. 🎥: @adventuremnfilms

El ganado es uno de los principales responsables de los graves problemas medioambientales de hoy en día. Se requiere una acción urgente para hacer frente a esta situación, por eso elegir una dieta vegana es la mejor opción 🌱💚 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 🔸 #nature_lovers #costarica #costaricainmypocket #madeincostarica #thisiscostarica #perfectnature #fantastic_earth #discovernature #vibe_life_nature #nature #naturelovers #instagood #somoscostarica #landscape #puravida #natgeoyourshot #thelandofpuravida #exploringcostarica #descubrecostarica #estoescostarica #descubrecr  #thecostaricancollective #costarica_puravida #natgeowild #puravida_costa_rica🇨🇷 #costarica_fotos #costaricacool #natgeo #vscocostarica #DeRidePhotography

We were drifting while. photographing a mass feeding event on the Monterey Bay in California a few years ago when out of my peripheral vision I caught this Behemoth ascend from the depths and come up about 10 yards from our boat ! This is a full-sized humpback. I love the way the whale starts its exhalation while it's still underwater, it was the bubbles that caught my eye when I got this shot. We're all just grateful that the whale didn't bump it's head on bottom of the boat and I was pretty stoked to get this shot! 😊🐳📷❤🐬 #Montereybay #California #mbnms #whales #montereybaynationalmarinesanctuary #marineprotectedarea #mpa #humpbackwhale #breachingwhale #oceanphotography #natgeowild #nature #nearmiss #pleasepackyourtrash #porfavorempacatubasura #nocigbuttsplease #plasticfree #thankyou #thankful #johnfhunterphotography #dolphins #marinelife #surfers

La hermosa vista de los volcanes en el monte tlaloc Monte tlaloc Una excelente experiencia, una de las cosas más difíciles que he hecho en mi vida, cuando estas acostumbrado a vivir al nivel del már subir a 4100 metros puede ser algo agobiante y extenuante, si a eso le agregamos el cargar el equipo fotográfico y todo lo necesario para acampar en el frio. Uff lo hace más difícil. Sinceramente, si no es por las buenas personas que dios puso en nuestro camino, no hubiéramos podido llegar y menos sobre vivir a los menos 6 grados que hizo esa noche. Al final del camino díos nos ayudó y este es el resultado de no dejarse vencer por las adversidades Espero les guste y puedan dejarme un comentario Amanecer en la punta le de montaña #montetlaloc #montaña #mountain #mexico #volcan #popocatepetl #Iztaccíhuatl #lamujerdormida @leslie_fotografia_cancun #sunrise #amanecer #bestshotz_sky #bestshots #SonyImagingprosupport #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild  #nationalgeografic #funday #sonyimages #vacation #siguemeytesigo #follow4follow #followme #followforfollow #longexpoelite #longexposure_shots #longexposure #best_shots #amazing_longexpo #longexpo_addiction #bestshots  #bestshotz_sky #longexposure

Every time I come back from a trip, I keep imagining what it would be like to live there for an entire year.If I visit the place in summers, I am left wondering how the locals live there during the rains and in winter. So, I am learning the art of time travel. And my trainers are books! Each I time I come back from a forest trip, I open books by Ruskin Bond and read them. He grew up in hills and forests, and almost all his works are set in hills and forests. Once I have seen the jungle during a safar in the present, his stories transport me in the same forest to a different time. I find myself hearing the same animals and birds, smelling the faint and sharp smells that make up the forest, and watching a different scene unfold in the forest that I captured through my camera lens very recently! Sometimes, I will also edit my photos to reflect the reality created by a book, rather than how I saw it. This image is a tribute to one such short story of a boy whose life I witnessed in a book. . . . . . . . . #beeNmee #traveljournal #travelersnotebook #travelpost #wanderlust #bookstagram #bookworm #reading #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #jungkook #india_gram #indiatravelgram #authorlife #inspiration #storiesofindia #story #LPMI #lonelyplanet #lonelyplanetindia

©All rights reserved. At the crime scene. At Los Cedros Biological Reserve, a crime has happened. The Tabanus thiemeanus community is astonished. A mantid, alias Choeradodis rhombicollis, kidnapped a carefree female tabanid that was resting at nightfall on the branch of a small tree. In the morning of that day she woke up as always since she metamorphosized two days ago. It was a hard day for her as finding food during the dry season is even harder: big mammals which she bites to get its blood and mature its fertilized eggs inside her are virtually absent, and most plants are not in flower. However she did her best to persevere and one day very soon to lay safe and healthy eggs in the moss of this paradise forest. In the end of the day she found a good place to "sleep". As temperature falls down, her ability to escape in the face of danger decreases because flight muscles are cold and don't respond as equally as during the day. She was exhausted and decided to hide under a leaf with no extra protection. The mantid watch her since she landed on the branch of the same plant she was waiting for a prey, and wasted no time in catching the fly. "Cuando Pedro salió a su ventana, no sabía, mi amor, no sabía, que la luz de esa clara mañana, era luz de su último día. Y las causas lo fueron cercando, cotidianas, invisibles. Y el azar se le iba enredando, poderoso, invencible." -Silvio Rodríguez- . #justicialoscedros #mantid #mantis #tabano #insects #insectos #Ecuador #ecuadoramalavida #natgeoyourshot #natgeowild #naturelover #storyteller #bestnatureshot #yourshotphotographer #wildlifephotography #analog #analogphotography #unescoworldheritage #macrophotography #macro_perfection #microcosmos #conservation #conservacion #conservacao #wildlifeconservation #biodiversity #biodiversidad #biodiversidade #getolympus #olympusom1 . @getolympus @olympuslatino @viajaprimeroec @sientetamemagazine @iflyklmmagazine @aviancaenrevista @bbcwildlifemagazine @terramatermag @natgeolatam @terresauvage @wild.planet @thisisecuador.magazine @ecuadorentusojos @outdoorphotographymag @save_the_choco @justicialoscedros
