Il y a un mois exactement, je sortais avec @zoospassion.johan pour photographier la Gorgebleue à Miroir. Ce matin là, aucun signe de cet oiseau mais un autre passereau fit son apparition : Le Bruant des Roseaux (mâle).

South Africa flying alongside these wild Rhinos.It’s a huge honor to get to see these animals up close and personal, but also incredibly sad to learn they’re quickly moving toward extinction. @vetpaw and @karmagawa are doing some amazing work to win this fight against poachers, and I hope all you of reading this take some time to learn about the fight.Peace! - Photo credit: Johnny Schaer Follow artist: @johnny_fpv ————————————— Follow us @joysafaribay and subscribe to our YouTube channel Joysafaribay to watch wildlife and safari inspiration videos. ————————————— #discover #wild #natureisbeautiful #wildlifephotography #nature #wildlife #mothernature #animalsofinstagram #photooftheday #safari #instanature #naturelover #adventure #natgeowild #travelphotography #animallover #bestnatureshots #joysafaribay #travelphoto #instagram #animal #tour #naturephotography #natgeo #tourism #naturelovers #travel #rihno #naturephoto #travelgram —————————————

When you're on safari you have to think on your feet and work with what you have. For this shot the elephants were positioned on the other side of our truck - meaning I didn't have a clear shot. You can just about make out another photographer in the bottom left. Depending on your view point it adds context to the image, or is an annoying distraction. Depends how you like to look at these things 🙃. This Elephant 🐘 was happily out enjoying a morning stroll, the tusks are just beautiful!

The marvelous gray whale. 💙 Weighing up to 40 tons this gentle giant is one of the worlds greatest travelers. During their migration some will travel about 12,430 miles round trip from summer waters in Alaska to Winter waters in Mexico; with quite the crew of resident grays who stop around our local Whidbey Island waters in spring. Some even staying through the summer! Grays actually have 2 blow holes which is why when they breath, their spout comes out in the shape of a heart (swipe right and you’ll see and example). While foraging sometimes they will come pretty close to shore and use their snout to dislodge tiny creatures like ghost shrimp from the sand beneath. Unfortunately with our plastic pollution problem, tiny creatures aren’t the only thing they’re dislodging and ingesting. It’s very imperative that we start limiting the amount of plastic that we use on a day to day basis before it’s too late. The time is now to make a difference. It’s up to us. I’ll drop an article like below please feel free to read it. And remember, if everyone picked up just ONE piece of litter a day, it would change the world. #whaleofatale 🌎 #doyourpart #staysalty #saveourplankton #staycurious #stayinformed #ourchoicesmatter #graywhale #orcanetwork #volunteersquad #earthoffline #takemoreadventures #natgeowild #natgeowildlife #planet_earth_shots #ourplanet #splendid_earth #welivetoexplore #lifeoutdoors #master_shots #pnw #pnwphotographer #photography #wildlifephotography #lonelyplanet #oceanlover

Definition for Deforestation: It is the the removal of a forest or stand of trees from land which is then converted to a non-forest use. All of us have studied deforestation in school and now we are facing it's oppressive effects more than ever. . Due to deforestation, animals will lose their natural habitat forcing them to crowd together in smaller pieces of land. This leads to overcrowding. . Carrying capacity is the maximum population size of the species that the environment can sustain (in a healthy manner) given the food, habitat, water, and other necessities. With overcrowding, the density of the population increases, which greatly affects their standard of living. . When species exceed carrying capacity, the resources in the land are consumed quicker than it would have with an ideal population. The quality of good food and water sources drop. . . Especially, for deer, this has greatly affected their tendencies to move away from their natural habitat and towards human population. This also increases the risks and incidents of accidents, poor-quality food consumption. . Overcrowding also leads to risks of developing a range of diseases amongst animals. When there is overcrowding, it prevents predators from feeding on their prey. This leads to population going out of check, further inducing poor quality of life. The cycle becomes vicious. . . The Earth is the most beautiful planet there is, and it is OUR only home. Happy is he, who is happy at home. If the Earth should be a happier place for all animals and plants, we must start treating her with the respect she deserves. . . . #nuotrauka #nuotraukaeye #deer #deerpopulation #deforestation #environment #earth #ourplanet #gogreen #unitednations #unfcc #natgeo #natgeowild #amateurphotography #photography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wild #mothernature #climatechange #climateaction #globalwarming #forest #beauty #shotonsamsung #samsung

Nunca pensé que fueras tú, solo se lo adquiría a la naturaleza pensando que me regalaba algo bonito. Ahora se que siempre supiste llamar mi atención y que nunca camine solo. Siempre recuerdo el día en que agarré por primera vez mi mochila, no pesaba nada, era como si el viento la levantara... siempre recuerdo la gente que me ayudo afuera, era como si mi abuela me salvara... siempre escucho ese silbido al viento, como aquel de ese día que tu corazón dejo de latir... • Ayer, cuando la ansiedad me comía por dentro salí a buscarte, al verte ahí, tan radiante y elegante, no dudé que estabas esperándome • A tu lucha y a tu amor 💚 . . . . . #yiyoqlo #puertonatales #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #landscape #landscapephotography #wildlife #wildlifechile #wildlifephotography #natgeowild #natgeoyourshot #ojosviajeros #surdechile #southofchile #patagonia #travelphotography #highlightscl #photooftheday #photoshoot #photography #photographer #nikond3000 #nikonphotography #nikoncontest #whatever #blah

🇪🇸 Este lugar es el principal sitio de anidación de flamencos del Caribe, especialmente entre Abril y Junio, los que puedes observar haciendo un tour en lancha por los manglares. Las coloradas tienen una alta concentracion de sal, lo que atrae bacterias, algas de color rojo, plancton y camarones de salmuera que luego le dan el color rosado al agua y a medida que los flamencos se alimentan de estas criaturas, también se vuelven rosadas. ¡Es por eso que los flamencos tienen un color rosado vibrante en Las Coloradas! . 🇬🇧 This is the main nesting place for flamingos in the Caribbean, especially between April and June, which can be observed by taking a boat tour through the mangroves. Las Coloradas has a huge concentration of salt that attracts bacteria, red-colored algae, planktons, and brine shrimps who then give the pink colour to the water and as the flamingos feed on these pink creatures, they also turn pink! That’s why the flamingos have a vibrant pink colour in Las Coloradas! . . #mexico #yucatan #flamingo #flamenco #nature #canon #wildlifephoto #photography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #birds #travelblogger #travel #naturephotography #igers #travelgram #photoshoot #natgeowild #natgeotravel #natgeo #instatravel #travellife #traveler #animalphotography #animalonearth #traveladdict #flamingoart #flamingolover #flamingoes #pinkflamingo
