Red fox / Rød rev Someone told me it was foxfriday, so here is a little throwback. Taken during our holiday in Ebeltoft, Denmark last year. Red fox in field during the sunset. The night before we met a small fox cub about a kilometer from this place. I only had my iPhone with me and my son reminded me that I always should bring my camera. The day after we did bring the camera and this is the result. Settings: 400mm - ƒ/5.6- 1/1000s - ISO 800 Your comments and likes are appreciated.

Cattle egret / Kuhegre During our lunch at The Bagh we spottet plenty of cattle egrets in the garden. This bird is quite common in India and I have been lucky enough to see it in Norway also. Enjoy. Settings: 400mm - ƒ/5.6- 1/1250s - ISO 400 Your comments and likes are appreciated.

Jungle cat / Jungelkatt The first day in Kanha we got to sit in a jungle cat hide to see them as they mostly are active during the night. My pictures from the hide are not the best so I was quite happy when we got to see this guy sitting and enjoying the morning sun. Enjoy.

Another image from my close encounter with a leopard in 2016. I saw more than twice as many leopards in 9 days in the Sabi Sands than I have in the rest of my 35 years of visiting game parks. This particular image was from the longest and closest sighting. #leopard #cat #bigcat #bigfive #catsofinstagram #animalphotography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #naturettl #photocrowd #splendidanimals #mycanon

I watched this stunning southern hawker (I think) for ages at Martin Down the other day. Southern hawkers are one of our more common dragonfly species. It was a real blessing to watch it patrolling a patch of sunny ride in the overgrown section of reserve. #dragonfly #dragonfliesofinstagram #southernhawker #southernhawkerdragonfly #insectsofinstagram #britishdragonflysociety #localpatch #martindown #martindownnaturereserve #igerswiltshire #igerswiltshiresalisbury #salisburylife #photooftheday #stunnersoninsta #bbcearth #natureTTL #uk_wildlife_images

Do you notice these beautiful tails? Well...the market for these “trinkets” has created a situation referred to as “The Silent Extinction” right under our noses. While on a recent flight back to the US, I sat next to a pilot who told me the story of his nephew, imprisoned in Kenya for 5 years, for poaching. The nephew acknowledged killing some 100 Giraffe (for their meat), for 200KES a piece. That’s less than $2 USD💔 This madness needs to end. . . . Photographer @simmie_issenberg . .

It's a gloriously sunny Sunday here, I hope the same is true for you too. Here's a Geranium Bronze taken outside our horel in Greece last summer with @greenwingswildlifetravel, it wasn't so sunny then but this year it was business as usual and butterflies galore. Who's coming with me next year? ________________________________________ #butterfly #savebutterflies #macrophotography #macroandflora #kings_macro #nuts_about_wildlife #macro_captures_ #weownthemacro_uk #naturephotoportal #naturettl #earthcapture #lepidoptera

"The Dance" . . Photography is an ever learning thing for me. To take a photo is one thing. To look at the design of a photo can be a totally different experience. I sat down with a design expert, @michael_mahoney_art, to help me go through my photos for an upcoming show. I meant to show him the photo of these two moose fighting, but I accidentally clicked on this one instead. He pointed out several different designs that I hadn't noticed. Both are really neat photos but this one shows something a little deeper. . . . I learned a couple of things. 1. Don't be afraid to reach out and ask for a second pair of eyes- even for the photos you don't plan on sharing. You never know what catches someone else's eye. . . 2. Keep learning. It can be hard and frustrating but totally worth it. My eyes are new to seeing designs, usually I just like a photo/painting but I don't know why. Design plays a big role in it and to learn what types of designs your eye is drawn to is kind of fun! . . . . . . . #localsofcb #gunnytimes #wild #moose #wildlifencolorado #visitcb #crestedbutte #visitgcb #adventure #crestedbuttewildflowerfestival #colorado #wildcolorado #colorado_creative #coloradowildlife #harnessyourphotography #livelifeoutsideco #naturettl #bullmoose #femalenaturephotographycom #coloradobha #wonphoto

1 of roughly 400 North Atlantic Right Whales left. ⁠ The incredibly lucky encounter of a 2019 born calf of this endangered species came after following reports of Pilot Whales in close to shore around the Corney Brook area. The research team went to investigate from shore as high winds kept us off the water for the day. After watching the Pilots for a while something seemed off with a much larger black object seen off to the side of one of the many pods. After about 20 minutes of observing this unidentified whale rolling around very close to shore from a nearby cliffs edge, a glimpse of the whale’s face was finally seen. Sure enough, we had found a Right whale. After another 30 minutes of observation the young Right Whale moved offshore with a plethora of breaches as it gradually made its way off into the distance.⁠ ⁠ After a lot of grim news surrounding the species this summer it was incredible to see a happy, healthy calf in Canadian waters! This is surely something I will never forget. ⁠ ⁠ _________________________________________ #northatlanticrightwhale #rightwhale #rightwhales #cetacean #whales #endangered #whalephotography #whaletales #whalelove #wildlifephotography #whalewatching #marinemammals #whalesofinstagram #whalelove #ignature #wildlifephotography #oceanlife #wildlifebiologist #fieldseason #marinelife #seacreatures#discoverwildlife #discoverocean #oceanconservation #visitcb #naturettl #novascotia #capebreton #capebretonhighlandsnationalpark #capebretonpilotwhaleproject⁠ ⁠

Got up early and headed out to have a wander around East Sooke Regional Park, the first half was spent walking along the coast and then we headed into the Forrest where we met this little barred owl.

Thorny Devil, Moloch horridus During the tedious drive back to Perth - back to civilisation, from Panawonica, on route we found a very special little reptile. A critter that was a target of mine when I was in NT - it is of course the Thorny Devil. I didn’t know their range covered WA but as one dashed across the road in front of the car I couldn’t quite believe it! Photographing it was difficult - the mid day sun creating harsh shadows and my images seemed lacked contrast. Using the 14-24mm was a pain at 14mm as my images weren’t all that sharp. It was a stressful shoot but out of then dozens of images I shot that day, one of them finally caught my eye!

Young sedge warbler sitting in the bushes. While watching the nutria have his dinner like you can see on yesterday's photo I suddenly heard cameras clicking next to me. I turned my head and noticed that the people to my left were taking of this lovely little sedge warbler. As always with those tiny bords you can swipe and see it much more close up :) #nikonz7 @nikon.z6 #nikonz7 #vogelfotografie_deutschland #sedgewarbler #travelphotography #naturfotografie_deutschland #youngnaturephotographers #naturettl #bb_of_ig #birdphotography #nationalparksaustria #Burgenland #seewinkel

Birds of prey are species of habit, so once you've found out where they like to hunt or perch you can anticipate them turning up (early and late in the day, when it is quieter, can be the best options).

Like spiders? This wee beauty is a Garden Spider - Araneus diadematus. They spin their beautiful orb webs by night, ready for trapping their food the next day - chances are, if you walk out of your house in the morning and get a face full of web, it will be thanks to one of these. They are a very common resident of our gardens. In fact, just during the course of a few hours today, I have discovered at least 7 of these, of varying sizes and colourations. Honestly, there is nothing to be scared of - this type of spider, the females of which grow to 15mm, are more likely to run and hide if they catch sight of you near their web than not. Or just sit there, not being bothered. #gardenspider #araneusdiadematus #spider #arachnid #britishspider #gardenwildlife #naturettl #earthcapture #macro #canon5dsr #nature #eightlegs #springwatch @britishspiders @nature.ttl @canonuk @springwatch @rspb_love_nature @bbcearth @aplanetfitfornature @thewildlifetrusts @derbyshirewildlifetrust #derbyshire #igersderbyshire

Humbug 🐗 Myself and @adie_lea returned back from the forest of Dean yesterday. It was the first time that we had visited. For anyone that hasn't visited before it is definitely worth a visit, the woodland around there is unlike any that I have seen before. After trying for 5 days to get a glimpse of any wild boar we managed to spot some a short walk away from our B&B on our last night with minutes to go until sunset! It was hard to get images of them due to the lack of light in the forest but I managed to get a couple of keepers. This one is of a young Boar, they are known as 'Humbugs' due to them having stripes on their bodies (Like humbug sweets). It was amazing to see them, their was a big family all ranging in sizes. There was a cull last Winter and it's made them even harder to spot. There's more Forest of Dean images to come 😀

Happy Saturday! Our bank holiday weekend started with a lovely meal out with friends last night. I'd like to think we looked a little more refined than this Lammergeier while stuffing our faces but who knows 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 Today my other half is off to watch the rugby, which means I've got time to potter around the garden and soak up the sunshine while he's out, because once he's home it's all hands on deck to take down a crumbling shed and build a new one. What are your long weekend plans looking like? ____________________________________ #Lammergeier #beardedvulture #bird #boneeater #swallowing #nuts_about_birds #best_birds_of_ig #bestbirdshots #eye_spy_birds #earthcapture #naturephotoportal #naturettl #wildlifephotography #kings_birds
