Günaydın… “İnsanlar böyle katıla katıla gülmeyi nasıl başarıyorlar?” sorusu üzerine ciddi ciddi düşünen papağanların yanından günaydın… Good morning in the company of parrots who seriously ponder the question, "How do people manage to laugh so heartily?"

I always get nervous when I peek at images I’ve just uploaded but thankfully I came back with some really great captures. This is an unedited preview of one of 1805 RAWS and large jpegs. I don’t like to post photos until they’re done and have my watermark on them so my phone may have affected how clear it actually looks. My recent trip with Backcountry Journeys to Katmai was my very first workshop after years of self-teaching. I had a blast! #katmainationalpark #katmainationalparkandpreserve #photographyworkshop #canon7dmkii #canon7dmarkii #canon #photography #photographer #fall #preview #highspeed #nature #naturephotography #naturephotographer #wildlife #wildlifephotography #bear #brownbear #salmonrun #alaska #ak #pacificnorthwest #pnw #natgeoyourshot #nationalgeographic

It’s #MapMonday 🌍 Every Monday we will be posting a picture of a country, landmark or natural landscape from a part of the world along with some fun facts! Pictured here today is Lake Victoria! It is the 2nd largest fresh water lake in the world. It borders Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. It receives 80% of its water from rainfalls and the remaining 20% from small rivers. . . . . . . #MapMondays #MapMonday #LakeVictoria #Kenya #Uganda #Tanzania #lake #rivers #nationalgeographic #theafricathemedianevershowsyou #theafricatheydontshowontv #nasdaily #landscape #beautifulafrica #afrifest #africansofhouston #fisherman #ubuntu #freshwater #rainfall

#cheetahs captured at #masaimara. These #cats usually are found in #pairs. This was the first thing we saw in the morning 15mins into the #gamereserve. It’s always a good idea to start early morning which gives you the best chance to view these animals lazying out in the open. This image was taken with them out about 100mtrs with a 200-500mm lens at iso800 to allow high F stop and high shutter speed . #wildlifephotography #catsontheprowl #kenya #tanzania #eastafrica #masai #safari #africansafari #africanholiday #nationalgeographic #natgeo #wildlifeonearth #wildlife_photography #bigfive #hunting

Africanamazing Team is honoured to share a mighty battle for mating rights. Below an excerpt from “ The Truth About Lions 🦁 “... “ Consulting their field data, Packer and his colleagues noticed that many males with short manes had suffered from injury or sickness. By contrast, dark-maned males tended to be older than the others, have higher testosterone levels, heal well after wounding and sire more surviving cubs—all of which made them more desirable mates and formidable foes. A mane, it seems, signals vital information about a male’s fighting ability and health to mates and rivals. Newspapers across the globe picked up the finding. “Manely, lady lions look for dark color,” one headline said. “Blonds have less fun in the lion world,” read another. Lately, Packer’s research has taken on a new dimension. Long a dispassionate student of lion behavior and biology, he has become a champion for the species’ survival. In Tanzania, home to as many as half of all the wild lions on earth, the population is in free fall, having dropped by half since the mid-1990s, to fewer than 10,000. Across Africa, up to one-quarter of the world’s wild lions have vanished in little more than a decade.

Я отношусь к типу людей, которые любят и ценят уединение. Я люблю быть одна.Иногда, просто нужно отдохнуть от толпы и подышать воздухом и напомнить себе, кто я есть и куда я стремлюсь 😉😁 #философиядуши #ялюбимая ❤️ #горы #ледники #пик #моренныеозера #озераТитова #поход #путешествияРк #мояатмосфера #mountains #travelalmaty #rest #trailfollowers #nationalgeographic #travelalmaty #горизонты #зож #счастьесть #горныйтуризм #треккингвыходногодня #лето2019

“You either took part in the massacres, or you were massacred yourself.” - A quote from a survivor of the Rwandan genocide. The massacres, in which close to 800,000 to 1 million Tutsis and their sympathetic Hutu allies were massacres by the Hutu army in power and the radical interhamwe militia. Rwanda, a former colony of Belgium and France had the seeds planted of the division during colonial rule and when the genocide finally took place in 1994, the international community looked away and did nothing to stop it. The only way evil can triumph is if good people do nothing. - - - #rawanda #africa #belgium #germany #europe #genocide #photography #pic #photooftheday #picoftheday #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #history #forensics #anthropology #education #learn #bones #war #natgeo #nationalgeographic #smithsonian

•The Armenian Genocide took place between 1914-1923. Acts of genocide were induced upon innocent civilians by the Ottoman government in which 1.5 Armenians were rounded up and executed, primarily through the desert regions of the Ottoman Empire in Syria. •To this day most of the world governments’ neither approve or deny that a genocide took place in fear of strained relations with the Empire’s successor state, Turkey. •There’s an old phrase that those who don’t learn from the past repeat their mistakes. My motto is “those who deny genocide and persecute innocent civilians will repeat their past mistakes.” •Where in the world do we see examples of those quotes now, past and present? - - - - #art #artist #mylife #war #arttherapy #history #anthropology #science #instagood #research #artofinstagram #nonprofit #syria #news #magazine #website #artsy #picture #forensic #instapic #armenia #armeniangenocide #reflection #realism #armenia #nationalgeographic #natgeo #post #armenian

The Holocaust is the most infamous atrocity in world history. Over 6 million innocent Jews, who’s only crime is practicing their faith, were systematically put to the brink of extermination by the Nazis of the Third Reich. Picture is a mass grave of Jewish prisoners of Poland, who were shot, then buried in an unmarked grave, which was eventually recovered and excavated by the Red Army. - - - #art #artist #jewish #war #arttherapy #history #anthropology #science #germany #research #artofinstagram #nonprofit #poland #germany #grave #horror #survivor #education #natgeo #nationalgeographic #wwii #worldwar2 #image #pastel #chalk #draw #drawing #israel
