My favourite thing to do in a forest is lie down and look up! The southern rātā on Auckland island is moulded by the wind into a very even canopy.

Good morning! Campus creek in Durham Park, flows in to Boone Creek (Kraut Creek), then under the road by Homes Center, can anybody identify the actual name of this little tributary?

“The walking of which I speak has nothing in it akin to taking exercise, as it is called, as the sick take medicine at stated hours …but it is itself the enterprise and adventure of the day.”... Thoreau (of course!) / the walks are getting longer and slower, with more discoveries and less anxiety related to the time taken. I found a productive American Chestnut at the base of Howard’s Knob, one I have walked by many times before without notice. The local creeks seem a little cleaner, and I thought about this other difficult era of the great flood. A time I suppose, when the world felt much bigger and mysterious beyond the mountain walls of Boone!

A Leopard Seal grabbing a Gentoo Penguin off a rocky shoreline in Antarctica. These seals eat both krill and penguins, a unique combination. You can see from these photos that their front teeth are sharp like those of other carnivores, but their molars lock together in a way that allows them to sieve krill from the water. . photos by @richardsidey / @galaxiid_creative . . #leopardseal #sealeopard #gentoopenguin #penguin #predator #apexpredator #antarctica #wildlifephotography #wildlife #lifeanddeath #nature #naturephotography #animalkingdom #richardsidey #natureismetal #earthcapture #yourshotphotographer #natgeowild #caughtintheact #wildlife_seekers #hereonearth #thepolarrealm #antarcticpeninsula #wildsouth

At a little above 50 degrees it was perfect weather to do an afternoon hike on the Green Mountain on the Alum Hollow/Talus/Talus Connector / Three Sisters /Ranger/ Alum Hollow trail sequence. The ranger trail runs parallel to this stream which has several small falls.

🇬🇧 Orcas are highly social and intelligent animals, with an array of social and communication skills. Because of this, the members on the pod will follow a code of "non-violence" towards one other. Even though, there is some rake marks caused by bites on the dorsal fin of this female. Could be a social interaction with members of other pods or maybe some mating interaction with males (also from other pods, so they avoid interbreeding). -- 🇧🇷 Orcas são extremamente sociais e inteligentes, um uma vasta gama de habilidades sociais e de comunicação. Por causa disso, os membros de um grupo irão seguir um código de "não-violência" contra outros membros. Apesar disso, podemos observar algumas marcas de dentes causada por mordida na nadadeira dorsal desta fêmea. Poderia ser devido a interações sociais ou até mesmo durante a reprodução com membros de outro grupo (para evitar consanguinidade).

🇬🇧 This is the Commerson's Dolphin, a cute black and white small dolphin that's inhabits South American, Falklands and Kerguelen waters. This species loves to play, surf on the waves (swipe to see next picture) and Bow-riding boats, they are very active at the surface, most of the times agile and fast. They tend to live in small groups, from 2 ton12 individuals, but the day I took the picture, there were more than 50 at the same beach (split in small groups). It was a fantastic opportunity to spot this adorable dolphin. I took this picture at Grave Cove, Falklands, in November 2019. -- 🇧🇷 Este é o Golfinho de Commerson, uma espécie fofa que vive nas águas da América do Sul, Ilhas Malvinas e Kerguelen. Estes animais amam brincar, surfar nas ondas (arrasta pra ver a próxima foto) e na prova de embarcações, sendo bem ativos na superfície, muitas vezes bem ágeis e rápidos. Eles vivem em grupos pequenos, entre 2 e 12 indivíduos, mas no dia em que tirei essa foto, haviam mais de 50 indivíduos na mesma praia (divididos em pequenos grupos). Foi uma fantástica oportunidade de observar está espécie tão adorável de golfinho. Esta foto foi tirada em Grave Cove, nas Ilhas Malvinas, em novembro de 2019.

🇬🇧 When penguins are alone in their nests, they call their partners using individual and distinctive calls, raising and shaking the head from one side to the other. These sound will attract their partners back to their nest, in the middle of the colony. This is the Chinstrap Penguin, easily identified by the black band over the white throat, a "strap on the chin". 🇧🇷 Quando os pinguins estão sozinhos em seus ninhos, eles chamam seus parceiros utilizando de chamadas individuais e distintas, erguendo a cabeça e balançando-a de um lado a outro. Estes sons irão atrair seus parceiros de volta ao ninho, no meio da colônia. Na foto vemos um Pinguim de Barbicha, facilmente identificável por conta da linha preta em sua garganta, como se fosse uma barba.

🇬🇧 Tabular Iceberg it's the random Antarctic thing I'll post today. A huge and square iceberg it's called tabular, because of it's shape. Generally they have some kilometers long and many hundreds of meters high, all above the surface. And this is only 30% of the iceberg. The rest it's underwater. Can you imagine the size of this one?? 🇧🇷 O iceberg tabular é o "algo randômico" da Antártica que postarei hoje. Este pedaço enorme de gelo flutuante é chamado de tabular por causa de seu formato quadrado. Geralmente pode ter alguns quilômetros de largura e muitas centenas de metros de altura. E isso é apenas 30% do Iceberg, já que o resto encontra submerso na água. Já imaginou o tamanho deste Iceberg?

Two Southern Elephant Seal bulls fight for harem rights on a beach in South Georgia. Spoiler alert, but in this case the challenger (left) beats the current beachmaster (right) and takes over his harem of females (for how long, who knows... It's tough work minding a harem!). . I filmed this battle at close proximity over ten years ago, when the battle errupted infront of a small group of us photographing King Penguins on the beach. It was a truely awesome spectacle with an even more impressive backdrop. South Georgia is wild. The footage got a bit of attention and ended up in all sorts of places, scroll right for a couple of examples in Japan and the US. Even when I'm filming something like this and watching the event unravel, I can never quite picture just how this footage may be used one day! 🤣 😜 . . photos and videos by @richardsidey . . #southgeorgia #southgeorgiaisland #elephantsealfight #elephantseal #beachmaster #animalfights #animalfight #wildlifephotography #wildlife #battle #sumowrestlers #sumo #naturephotography #naturelovers @natureismetal #wildlifefilmmaking #wildlifefight #harem #antarctica #wildsouth #thepolarrealm #speechless #richardsidey

🇬🇧 A friend of mine once asked me if the whales breach in Antarctica in the same frequency they do it on the tropics, and I said "no...." Well, this last season just made me change my answer, because I saw so many breaches from calves, and a couple of adults, like the one in the picture. The most beautiful thing of this picture in my opinion it's the landscape, with the icebergs framing the Humpback whale's behavior. Btw, take a look on this friend's Instagram, he's an AWESOME photographer, and my mentor in photography: @marcosamend -- 🇧🇷 Um dia, um amigo meu me perguntou se as baleias saltam na Antártica na mesma frequência que elas saltam boa trópicos, e eu disse "não...". Bom, esta temporada passada me fez mudar minha resposta, porque vi tantos saltos de filhotes, mas somente alguns saltos de adultos, como este da foto. O mais bonito desta foto na minha opinião é a paisagem, com os icebergs fazendo a moldura do comportamento da baleia jubarte. Falar nisso, segue o perfil desse meu amigo, que é somente um dos MELHORES fotógrafos que conheço e meu mentor na fotografia: @marcosamend

🇬🇧 My heart jump out of my chest everytime I hear "Orcas" from the Captain... They are shy compared to other populations; no breachings, no surface activities. They swim fast, synchronized, straight. I'm truly fascinating about how different the Antarctic Type B orcas are from that black and white pattern we are use to see on TV. Their cape is very visible and often covered by Diatoms coat. Scientist just unveiled that these whales migrate to the tropics to do a skin spa and release the Diatoms from their skin every couple of years. Amazing! -- 🇧🇷 Meu coração quase pula do meu peito toda vez que eu escuto "Orcas" do Capitão do Navio... Elas são tímidas comparadas a outras populações, não saltam, não realizam nenhuma outra atividade de superfície. Apenas nadam rápido, em sincronia, em uma mesma direção Eu sou fascinada com o fato de estas Orcas Tipo B da Antártica serem tão diferentes daquele padrão preto e branco que estamos acostumados a ver na TV. A sua capa bem visível está frequentemente coberta por uma camada de diatomáceas. Cientistas descobriram recentemente que estas orcas realizam migrações para os trópicos para fazer um tratamento de pele, como um SPA, para remover as diatomáceas a cada par de anos. Incrível!

🇬🇧 Two pictures, same whale. Meet Prince! The first was taken in January 2018 (by me) and the other was taken in 2017 (by Kim Charter), both in the Antarctic Peninsula. The yellow color is due to Diatoms, microscopic algae that grows on the whale skin and fluke in cold waters. Generally, after the winter season in warmer tropic waters that coat disappears and grows again next summer. This can be tricky to identify the whale, since the Diatoms can hide important features, but Happywhale is doing an excellent job with the algorithms, and the results are these great matches. @happyhumpback -- 🇧🇷 Duas fotos, mesma baleia. Conheça o Prince! A primeira foto foi tirada em Janeiro de 2018 por mim, enquanto a segunda foi em Janeiro de 2017 (por Kim Chater), as duas na Peninsula Antártica. A coloração amarelada se dá pela presença das diatomáceas, algas microscópicas que crescem na pele da baleia quando em águas geladas. Geralmente, durante o inverno em águas tropicais quentes, a camada de algas irá desaparecer e crescer novamente no próximo verão. Isto pode ser complicado durante a identificação da baleia, já que as diatomáceas podem encobrir características importantes na nadadeira, mas o Happywhale está fazendo um excelente trabalho com seus algoritmos e este é o resultado da comparação.

Self Isolation might be new to most.... not here at Tea Tree Hill. We’ve been practising self isolation for years, and know exactly how to make it peaceful, relaxing and rejuvenating... • It’s business as usual here, and for our local partners so if you’re sick of Netflix and video conferencing, book a night or two away.... we’re ready, and we’re safe!

Always buy quality! Every time you “throw away” your old clothes, they’re not going “away”. They’re going into landfills, or being burned. "Every second, the equivalent of one garbage truck of textiles is landfilled or burned. 1 truck per second. To landfill.” That’s why Wild South have made a commitment, not only to making our clothes ethically and sustainably, but to crafting a wardrobe that stands the test of time. We’re committed to bringing you quality pieces that are styled and crafted to bring you value, now and for years to come. And when our garments do finally run out of breath, our natural fibre fabrics mean that our clothing is all renewable, biodegradable, and carbon neutral. So next time you go to buy the “3 for $20” tees, have a think about where your priorities lie!!

🇬🇧 Watching whales can be predictable, sometimes repetitive. But the reason that me and most of the crazy whale watchers that I know spend hours watching whales it's to see the novelty, the different things nature can show us in very rare moments. One of this was this Humpback Whale and Minke whale interaction I had the pleasure to spot. For more than 30 minutes, the minke stayed with the mother and calf pair. Minke and calf spy-hoping together, rolling on the surface, in an almost synchronized behavior. Extraordinary and unforgettable On the first picture, we can see the Minke whale and the Humpback whale with the different dorsal fin shapes and back color. Swap to see the Minke and humpback whale calf head during the spy hoping behavior, and the photoID of the mother humpback. 😍 🇧🇷Observar baleias pode ser previsível, às vezes repetitivo. Mas a razão pela qual eu e a maioria dos loucos observadores de baleias que conheço passamos horas assistindo baleias é ver a novidade, as diferentes coisas que a natureza pode nos mostrar em momentos muito raros. Uma dessas foi a interação das Baleias Jubarte e Minke que tive o prazer de identificar. Por mais de 30 minutos, o minke ficou com o par mãe e filhote. Minke e bebê jubarte espiam juntos, rolando na superfície, em um comportamento quase sincronizado. Extraordinário e inesquecível!!! Na primeira foto podemos ver as diferenças entre a região dorsal e nadadeira dorsal da Minke e da jubarte. Arrasta pra ver a foto da Minke e do bebê jubarte durante o comportamento spy hoping, e a nadadeira caudal da mãe jubarte. 🤩
