I shot this photo last week. I feel like I want to share a knowledge so I wrote the long caption (based on my articles research). Feel free to read duhh. These are a pair of brackish water snails, Neripteron violacea. They were found at a mangrove river bank attached to rocks. The eggs of this species will hatch to become a planktonic larvae that would be drifted downstream to the sea, which provides salinity and temperature for the larval development. After some time, the post-larvae will do ‘self-recruitment’ then migrate back to the upstream, where they will spend the rest of their life and mate. Their food source are mangrove leaf litter and microalgae. Their faeces are further decomposed by microorganisms, and then it would be reintegrated by phytoplankton to become biomass that could feed migrating species. It is interesting to note that the female of this species is larger than the male. Do you know why? Keep following my stories for more information. . . . . . #animal #snail #shell #nature #naturephotography #river #estuarine #forest #mangrove #artofvisuals #adventure #biodiversity #explore_wildlife #beautiful #love #wildlifeconservation #wildlife_seekers #wildlifephotography #biologist #instawildlife #wildlife_perfection #natgeowildlife #ig_wildlife #wildlifepics #travelblogger #amazon #theamazonrainforest #wanderlust #wildlifefriend #earthpix

Although a common sight in pet shops and public aviaries alike, the Java Sparrow, or Java Finch (𝘓𝘰𝘯𝘤𝘩𝘶𝘳𝘢 𝘰𝘳𝘺𝘻𝘪𝘷𝘰𝘳𝘢) is becoming increasingly rare across its native range. Due to decades of extermination by farmers, habitat loss, and illegal poaching for the songbird trade, the formerly plentiful and widespread Sparrows were officially considered "Endangered" in 2018. . . . . . #natgeoyourshot #nature #nature_brilliance #birds_bees_flowers_n_trees #naturephotography #conservationphotography #bird_brilliance #wildlife #natgeo #wildlifeonearth #birds #nature_perfection #birdwatching #bird_watchers_daily #natgeowild #wildlifeconservation #naturelovers #conservation #wildlifephotography #natgeowildlife #nature_lovers #bird

Friendly Glance — During a hot summer day I had an amazing close encounter with this roe deer in the forest. It gave me this gentle look before it continued its wandering deeper into the woods

A dog is not a thing. A thing is replaceable. A dog is not. A thing is disposable. A dog is not. A thing doesn't have a heart. A dog's heart is bigger than any "thing" you can ever own. Make sure to love your dogs and treat them twice as good as the things you own.

King of the plains. A huge bull American bison pauses to evaluate the landscape and the puny 2-legged animal (me) standing in his territory. He wasn't too perturbed by my presence but he also made it clear that he is not one to suffer fools lightly. #wildlifeonearth  #wildlifeaddicts  #natgeowild   #natgeowild_hd #natgeopix  #wildlifeperfection #closeupanimal #natgeohub  #natgeowildlife #wildlifephotography #animal_captures #animals_in_world #splendid_animals #animals_captures #animal_fanatics #animalelite  #animal_sultans  #wildlifephoto  #wildlifelovers #earthfocus #wildlifephotographyu #wildlifephotographyoftheyear #wildlife #nature #naturephotography  #wildlifeplanet #natgeo #bison #grasslandsnationalpark

This photo was taken in my backyard near Chicago, so we know what the species is or should be -- a Ruby-throated Hummingbird. This is a partially leucistic bird. Leucism is a partial loss of pigmentation, which can make the bird have white or patchily colored feathers. All the more special and beautiful. #rubythroatedhummingbird #Archilochuscolubris #backyardbirds #extraspecial #uniquebirds #leucistic #leucism #wildlife_loop #wildlifephotography #birdsofinstagram #birdsofillinois #audubonsociety #cornelllabofornithology #uncommonlybeautifulcommonbirds #natgeowildlife #natgeoyourshot #sonyrx10iv #lovebirds

Hi friends, well I know many of you have been asking me when my website will be back online, and I’m happy to say that its almost done. My new website will also include an updated print store, offering prints of some of my favorite images like this one. To commemorate the relaunch I’ll be offering a promo code which can be applied to all prints. Money raised from the sale of prints will support a number of conservation initiatives. Thank you for all your support. • I was cold, wet and tired, the numbness in my fingers was a clear indication that the sub-zero temperature was beginning to take its toll, but all this was really just subtext to what was playing out before me. I had been there for over an hour, watching her as she foraged on the frozen expanse. For the most part, her exploits thus far were more investigative in nature. Perhaps she wanted to first locate her prey (living deep under the snow) without expending too much energy, or maybe she wanted to get them accustomed to her presence and lull them into a fall sense of security. Just as I started to relegate myself to the notion that this was not going to be the moment, something happened, her intention changed, the hunt started… I watched her, captivated, awestruck, bewildered… and then in the blink of an eye it happed, a moment I had only dreamed about capturing… There are those moments that you dream about witnessing your entire life, those moments that you hope to someday be a part of, and perhaps, if you are fortunate enough, maybe even capture. These are the moments that defy your sense of reasoning and fill you with a sense of wonderment. This was one of those moments, it was something I had witnessed only in the documentaries I had watched as a little kid, an incredible feat that captivated me as much now as it did then. What makes moments like these so special? Perhaps it is because in these beautifully hidden moments nature lifts her delicate veil and gives us a glimpse of what makes her truly extraordinary, and ultimately makes our world that much more beautiful. In many regards, its witnessing moments like these that emancipates us, that frees us.

Tapirs look something like pigs with trunks, but they are actually related to horses and rhinoceroses. This eclectic lineage is an ancient one—and so is the tapir itself. Scientists believe that these animals have changed little over tens of millions of years. Tapirs have a short prehensile (gripping) trunk, which is really an extended nose and upper lip. They use this trunk to grab branches and clean them of leaves or to help pluck tasty fruit. Tapirs feed each morning and evening. During these hours they follow tunnel-like paths, worn through the heavy brush by many a tapir footstep, to reach water holes and lush feeding grounds. As they roam and defecate they deposit the seeds they have consumed and promote future plant growth.(info: Natgeo) . . . . . . . . . #peten #tapir #guatemala #perhapsyouneedalittleguatemala #nature #naturephotography #naturelovers #naturelover #natureart #nature_perfection #natureaddict #natureonly #wild #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeart #wildlife_perfection #wildlifeaddicts #wildanimals #natgeo #natgeowild #NatGeoWildlife #globalconservation #natgeotravel #natgeohub #wildguatemala #canon #canonusa #wilderness #guateimpresionante

One of the cleanest Steller’s Sea Eagle I have ever seen. This guy is coming in for a landing all 5 points ( if you include the tail) fully stretched out for a 2 point landing. How about those impressive talons? This shot was taken back in February, just been having a reminiscence with my files. I’ve uploaded so many pics of these incredible Eagles, but I still have thousands more in my archives. Hope you will enjoy. - _ #paulwhittonphotography #natgeoyourshot #stellersseaeagle #birdsofprey #birds_private #birds_matter #birds_nature #nature #natureismetal #natureisincredible #your_best_shots #planet_birds #naturyst #canon5dmarkiv #natgeowildlife #canonasia #only_raptors #planet_birds #birds_captures #birds_illife #birds_adored #birdspotting #birdsonearth #stellersseaeagle #birdsplace #elite_birds #elite_raptors #your_best_birds #wildlifephotography #wildbirds
