Humpback whales are amazing creatures. They are known for their complex mating songs. Researchers have studied them for years, and the complexity of these songs suggests the whales are extremely intelligent animals 🐋⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #whales #humpbackwhales #discoverocean #wildlife_photography #wildlife_captures #wildlifelovers #wildlifeonearth #exploreourearth #ourdailyplanet #discoverwildlife #discover_earth #bbcearth #NikonGlobal #wildnature #wildplanet #yourshotphotographer #sharecangeo #canada_photolovers #imagesofcanada #nikonca #explorecanada #quebecoriginal

Elk - Date taken: October 13, 2019 - Where to begin? I have a lot to say about this one. - So I planned a trip with someone to head north to find elk. We decided on Sunday and planned to leave at 3am. So, on Saturday evening, I decided to try to sleep at 8pm to get 6 hours of sleep. I woke up at 9pm and stayed up. So 1 hour of sleep is what I was running on from that point onward. - Once we departed on the adventure, we had a 3 hour and 30 minute (179 miles) drive to Benezette, PA. For much of this drive, we traveled along the beautiful Susquehanna River, with a misty fog laying lightly over it, catching the bright light of the moon. This fog prevailed the entire way there. - When we finally got there, the fog was so thick you could barely see anything. However, you could see the silhouette of the elk in the fog, meaning I finally saw an elk for the first time. - We carried on after we ate lunch and the fog dissipated. Mile after mile, we searched for elk until we finally found some lying in beneath a patch of forestland. We remained there for about 3 hours, waiting for sunset. Finally, they come out and notice the sound of my shutter. They stick together and run off into the distance. - I framed those shots poorly, however. Luckily, 2 people we met along the way showed us the solitary elk off in the distance. I sneak up on the elk and get close enough for a beautiful shot. This was finally the shot I framed right. - The adventure eventually came to an end. Satisfied beyond my expectations, we head back home (admittedly, we got lost and headed 30 miles in the wrong direction). - Lastly, I’d like to thank @griffins_wildlife_photography for letting me know of such a wonderful location. I really couldn’t have done it without his help.

The wet weather brings some opportunities if you’re willing to get on the floor and get dirty —— Lemon Slug (Limax tenellus) This is a bright yellow slug which has dark tentacles. It is scarce and almost always found in woodland. It is a good indicator of ancient sites. Feeds on fungi. Very low risk to agricultural crops —— #wildlife #wildlifephotography #macro #wildlife_macro #lemonslug #slug #britishwildlife #woodland #ancientwoodland #animalelite #animal_captures #naturettl #wildlife_captures #nikon #nikond500 #staffordshire #wetweather #noedit #nofilter

#DidYouKnow There are two extant elephant species: the African bush elephant, also known as the African savannah elephant, and the Asian elephant. Some taxonomists propose that the African forest elephant is a separate species to the African bush/savannah elephant, and others believe that there may even be three African elephant species with an additional one called the West African elephant. 🐘🐘 . . . . . #Amanzitravel #ExploreTheWorld #Adventure #WildlifePhotography #Photography #NaturePhotography #SeeTheWorld #WildlifeOnEarth #WildlifeAddicts #Adventuring #AdventureThatIsLlife #RoamThePlanet #Instagood #TravelGoals #NaturePhotography #Photooftheday #Love #Travel #ExploreMore #Animals #Wildlife_Captures #Wildlife_Perfection #BestNatureShots #WildlifeConservation #Photooftheday #NatGeo #AfricaGeo

Serval cats are a native species to Africa, residing mostly in the Savannahs. They are a medium sized cat with the longest legs of any cat relative to its size, and does most of its hunting by leaping into the air to catch its prey. 📸 . . #discoverwildlife #animals_captures #wildlifeonearth #natgeowildlife #serval #wildlifephotography #africancats #africanwildlifephotography #natgeo #animalphotography #servalcat #africancat #wildlife_captures #natgeowild #wildlifeofinstagram #africananimals #animal #servals #wildlife_photography #animalphotographer #wildcats #wildcat #natgeophotography #wildlife #africanserval #africanwildlife #animalworld #raw_allanimals @raw_allanimals @animals_captures

This is a margay, a rarely seen jungle cat I was lucky enough to capture in Costa Rica. The only reason I was able to take this picture was because the cat hung around a private home and it was often seen shortly after dawn. The owner would leave a bowl of milk for it, and sometimes the cat came out of the forest to drink. I took this with a Mamiya RZ 67 medium format film camera along with a portable Metz flash. The dark jungle environment made it very challenging to shoot with 100 ISO film -- my standard speed for wildlife in the film days -- so the additional fill flash was needed. The camera was completely manual, including focus, and that presented a serious challenge in obtaining sharp images. Still, I was able to get three decent shots before the margay melted into the jungle and disappeared. My settings were unrecorded, but based on how I used to shoot, they were probably 1/125, f/5.6, and I used a 350mm lens (equivalent to a 200mm telephoto in the full frame digital format). There were quite a few out of focus white areas of the sky seen through the foliage, and I used Photoshop to clone them out because they took attention away from the margay.

, We are 🍀 Nuts About Conservation 🌳 . 💫 P H O T O by @mogenstrolle . S P E C I E S: Walia

We are 🍀 Nuts About Conservation 🌳 . 💫 P H O T O by @mogenstrolle . S P E C I E S: Walia Ibex (Capra walie) . S T A T U S: Endangered . F A C T S: The Walia Ibex are found on the very steep and rocky cliffs of Ethiopia’s northern mountain range. The 900 surviving Walia Ibex live only in Semien Mountains National Park - one of the first sites to be made a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (1978). However, due to serious population declines of some of its characteristic native species, in 1996 it was also added to the List of World Heritage in danger. . D I D Y O U K N O W . The adult Walia Ibex’s only known wild predator is the hyena. . These grazers have very large horns that curve backward and can reach lengths up to 43 inches. . TOP REASONS FOR DECLINE Poaching and habitat depletion are the major threats to the Walia but settlements, cultivation and livestock grazing within Semien National park also led to the decline in numbers. . C O N S E R V A T I O N One of the greatest contributors to increased Walia numbers was freeing Semien Park from five human settlements. In addition, state and environmental non-profits have been diligently working since the mid-1990’s to improve the Ibex’s habitat. In August 2019, Heineken Breweries partnered with the Ethiopian Wildlife Conservation Authority to continue efforts to increase the Walia’s numbers. It has also been recommended by the IUCN that captive breeding programs be started but as of yet, there are no Walia Ibex in captivity. . . Posted by @⁣keerpryz . .
