Beautiful arctic fox after it has turned white, playing in the snow . the early morning light hitting the snowy backgrounds gave it a blue colouring in the shadow area. while I have photographed several arctic fox in the wild ,The fox in this image is not wild but not trained either. Image taken with a Canon 5D Mark IV and Canon 70-200 mm f2.8. #arcticfox #snow #foxesofinstagram #foxes #canonusa #teamcanon #canonfanphoto #marvelouz_animals #featured_wildlife #animal_elite #animals_magic #amazinganimals #animalsinsnow #beautyinnature

The bravest wildebeest goes down to the river to scope out the scene while the rest of the herd waits in nervous anticipation. They eventually converge in pressurized numbers at the rivers edge. The first motion towards the water by a single wildebeest sets off an incredible psychic display of one of nature’s most incredible scenes. . . . . #wildlife #canonphotography #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #naturephotography #wildebeest #greatmigration #wildlifephotography #african_portraits #animal_captures #wildernessculture #wildlifephotographer #africanwildlife #photosafari #canonwildlife #tanzania #wildlifeplanet #nature_brilliance #bbcearth #bestanimalshots #wildlife_inspired #featured_wildlife #splendid_animals #capturethewild #marariver #crocodiles

American black bear (Ursus americanus), Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming. - I'm experimenting with editing photos in DxO PhotoLab rather than Photoshop on a new laptop with a major upgrade in screen quality and power. No idea which is more of a factor, but editing no longer feels like an insurmountable chore. - - #blackbear #bear #yellowstone #yellowstonenationalpark @yellowstonenps #wildlife #animal #animalphotography #wildlifephotography #olympus #olympuscamera #instanature #discoverwildlife #exclusive_wildlife #wildlifeplanet #featured_wildlife #picoftheday #nature_brilliance #natgeowild #naturephotography #naturephotographyday #ursusamericanus #dxophotolab

This male snowy was perched wonderfully. We were waiting for the perfect last few minutes of the ‘golden hour’, but it flew away. No one chased it. We left it be. It will be around until April or May I imagine so it should be fun gathering images. #snowyowls #owls #owlsofinstagram #owl_lovers #onlyowls #elite_owls #birdofprey #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #instagood #natgeo #canada #SonyAlpha #SonyA9 #sony100400gm #BeAlpha #getoutthere #canadanature #naturecanada #thegreatoutdoors #featured_wildlife #capturethewild

In #tarangirenationalpark you will see a lot of #plainzebras (#equusquagga). I am always impressed in black and white shots of the #plainzebras. Black and white stripes make the #zebra one of the most recognizable animals in the world. The #plainszebra, also known as the #commonzebra, is the most abundant of three species of #zebra, inhabiting the grasslands of eastern and southern #Africa.

While her cubs would play fight on a little island within the river, this mother bear would fish then bring her food onto land behind the bushes. The cubs would follow and every so often catch a fish of their own, proudly bouncing across the river to show off their victory. This was one of the busiest times of year for this Alaskan river where these brown bears gather to forage for themselves and their family for the winter.

♥️Gordon Bennett! Too much Brexit on the news wouldn’t you say? . ♥️ Goldfinch in my garden on hazel. Carduelis carduelis (name derived from Latin for thistle carduus) An old name for them was thistle finch. The males have longer bills which mean they can reach inside teasels ! . ♥️The collective name for goldfinches, a charm, is derived from the old English c’irm, describing the birds’ twittering song . #cowpi32 @bbcearth @wildgeography #bird_brilliance #feather_perfection #bns_birds #Kings_birds #your_best_birds #bestbirdshots #eye_spy_birds #birds_adored #birds_captures #iganimalkingdom #sassy_birds #animalelite #nature_of_our_world #birdfreaks #bb_of_ig #birdphotography #best_birds_of_world @birdsonearth #nature_photobook .#animalsmood #animalelite #nature_cuties #magic_marvels #instanaturefriends_ #all_animals_addiction #wildlifeplanet #featured_wildlife #shots_of_animals #splendid_animals

This Dunlin was taken in spring when many birds are transitioning into breeding plumage. This bird has not quite molted into his beautiful breeding colors with include a full black belly and often deep rufous tones on his wings and back. In winter they become generally washed out with whites and light grays. Regardless of color, they always look great in morning light, here in a shallow pool along the NJ coast.

A follow up image from my last post. After sitting quietly and patiently for several minutes waiting for this magnificent raptor to take off I was distracted by a man in a small boat. When I turned back to the Bald Eagle I saw that he had taken off. I felt good that I was able to get this shot but the images could have been so much better if I would have stayed focused. Lesson learned! . . .#baldeagle #wildcalifornia #natgeowild #naturyst #earthoutdoors #earthpix #bb_of_ig #elite_raptors #audubonsociety #featured_wildlife #nationalearth #your_best_birds #natureonly #nb_nature_brilliance #kings_birds #seewildlife #birdfreaks #nature #featured_wildlife #nature_perfection #shotzdelight #wildlifeig #earthscope #nationalearth #ip_births

"Females are coy and males are ardent.". This is a simple quote taken from Darwin in The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex. This scientific theory really helped solidify the myth that males are promiscuous and females are naturally monogamous. However, Darwin’s theory has constantly been debunked as we've gained more knowledge of the wonderful world of sexual selection! . I've spoken a lot about sex recently (it's just so damn interesting) and this folds onto my previous ramblings. In the wild, promiscuity is rife and this sexual prowess was originally thought to be a pivotal function of fuelling evolution. This is because promiscuity intensifies sexual selection, an evolutionary process whereby individuals develop traits that help them get more ladies and offspring (think of a stags’ antlers and male peacocks’ tails). Sexual selection should speed up genetic exchange and form new species (call speciation). Just on a side note, this idea of sexual selection is very male-centric. When females are promiscuous, sexual selection gets even more interesting! If a female mates with different males in rapid succession then the sperm of those males compete for the female’s eggs. This folds back to the sperm competition theory I have previously mentioned. This is one of the reasons that the males of many species have evolved to produce large numbers of sperm: they’re tickets in the fertilisation raffle. . However, a new study on shorebirds indicates the opposite to the modern day understanding that promiscuity fuels evolution. They found that in shorebirds, there are more subspecies amoung monogamous species than promiscuous species. They believe that this phenomenon comes from the shorebirds genetic exchange was being pooled in a certain area due the monogamous lifestyle. This allows these genetically isolated populations to evolution to become unique and form a new species (or subspecies). This is one of the first studies that identifies the opposite to what modern science currently thinks and I think that’s fascinating enough to share!

White-lipped Island Pit Viper, (Trimeresurus insularis). This is the same species as the blue viper I posted a couple days ago, just a different color variation. This species can be blue, green, or yellow. Sadly we didn't get a true yellow phase, however this individual had more yellow tones than any of the others we encountered. #trimeresurus #trimeresurusinsularis #viper #whitelippedislandpitviper #venomous #pitviper #venom #venomoussnake #viperidae #komodo #komodoislands #indonesia #reptiles #herping #herpetology #snake #reptilephotography #photography #nikon #nikond500 #wildlife #nature #macrointhewild #macrophotography #herpingtheglobe #featured_wildlife #reptilesofinstagram

"These magnificent species of Africa - elephants, rhino, lions, leopards, cheetah, the great apes - this is a treasure for all humanity, and they are not for sale. They are not for trade.

Lucky to catch this photo of a Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep trudging in Yellowstone during minus 32-degree temps that nearly killed my camera. Less than 500 of these regal, majestic animals roam the national park. When they stray outside the park’s boundaries, they’re fair game for hunters 😖 #BighornSheep #YellowstoneNationalPark #WildlifePhotography #CanonPhotoFan #TravelWyoming #CanonUSA #Featured_Wildlife

It seems everyone want to be in my pictures. I was trying to shoot the Gelada Baboon on the ridge when suddenly the other one appeared and just photobombed his friend. Luckily it made a very nice picture. Animal photography is always unexpected. That is why I love it! #ethiopia#gelada#simienmountains#photobomb#animalphotography#natgeoyourshot#natgeotravel#justshoot#goexplore#endemic#animal_sultans#wildlifephotography#bestshot#baboon#naturephotography#wildanimals#natureperfection#wildlifeonearth#bestnatureshots#eye_for_earth#featured_wildlife#wildlifeplanet#getoutside#splendid_animals#africanportraits#discoverwildlife#wildlifeaddicts#freshairclub#destination_wild

Big game trophy hunting is a particularly sick pathology. News of Cecil the lion's son Xanda being killed two years after his father in Zimbabwe just shows how little progress has been made. Seeing lions in the wild (here, in Kenya, which bans trophy hunting) is beyond an extraordinary experience. #BoycottZimbabwe #BanLionHunting #WorldLionDay #AfricanWildlife #OutdoorPhotography #Canon5D #Featured_Wildlife
