#NiFHiveFeature: A Blyth’s Starling photographed by Santosh Kumar (@santosh_kumar_elumalai) in Chikmagalur, Karnataka. Previously designated as a subspecies of the Chestnut-tailed Starling, the Blyth’s Starling is now considered as a separate species. Also called Malabar Starling, these birds are commonly found in southwest India. #natureinfocus #nif #nifhive #birds #birdsofinstagram #starling #blythsstarling #malabarstarling #chestnuttailedstarling #chikmagalur #westernghats

Video by Chris Besson @divingworldmauritius Posted @withrepost@paditv All Ribbon Eels start off as male and are black with a yellow dorsal fin. As they mature, the male eels turn mostly bright blue with yellow accents around the mouth and on the dorsal fin. The changes don’t stop there. After the male’s body reaches a certain length, it begins to turn yellow and will develop female parts until it is able to lay eggs.

Shortlist - Nature inFocus Photography Awards, 2019 Attack On Viper-Head - Masood Hussain (@masood_hussain) Upon sighting a rare White-lipped Himalayan Pit Viper, the photographer snapped a few shots, when he spotted a spider on the viper’s head. But, that wasn’t all. A small insect, which had also climbed on to the viper’s head, was quickly grabbed by the spider. All this drama took place on the head of a pit viper, the most bizarre of arenas.

Posted @withrepost@pooja__rathod Thou hast taught me, Silent River! Many a lesson, deep and long; Thou hast been a generous giver; I can give thee but a song. Oft in sadness and in illness, I have watched thy current glide, Till the beauty of its stillness Overflowed me, like a tide. And in better hours and brighter, When I saw thy waters gleam, I have felt my heart beat lighter, And leap onward with thy stream. To the River Charles by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Shortlist - Nature inFocus Photography Awards, 2019 Scavenger’s Den - Nitin Michael (@wildlifeandwhisky) A giraffe died during childbirth, and somehow, the lions and other big cats missed this opportunity for an easy feed. The carcass was soon covered with more than a hundred vultures, when a solitary hyena appeared out of nowhere to be a part of the feast. The vultures had already devoured quite a lot, so the hyena decided to go right into the belly of the giraffe, looking for leftovers.

Shortlist - Nature inFocus Photography Awards, 2019 Dance With Me - Thirumoorti RA (@thirumoorti_photography) A pair of Reddish Egrets in breeding plumage, exhibit their expert courtship skills. They are a near-threatened species, but conservation efforts are giving results as seen by the increase in their numbers.

#NiFHiveFeature: Bibhav Behera (@beebowow) photographed these Black-rumped Flamebacks in Bandipur National Park, Karnataka. Black-rumped Flamebacks are known for their coloured plumage, but these colours vary between subspecies based on their region. For example, the flamebacks found in India and northern Sri Lanka have the bright yellow plumage that you see in the image. In southern parts of Sri Lanka, you will find them with red backs instead of the yellow. #natureinfocus #nif #nifhive #birds #birdsofinstagram #woodpecker #blackrumpedflameback #flameback #bandipur #bandipurnationalpark

#NiFHiveFeature: Prasenjit Choudhury (@wild_tale) photographed a Bengal Fox in Purulia, West Bengal. Native to the Indian subcontinent, Bengal Foxes can be identified by their elongated muzzle, and small patches of black hair on top of the muzzle. They are usually found in foothills, open grasslands and in arid regions. #natureinfocus #nif #nifhive #fox #bengalfox #purulia #westbengal

Posted @withrepost@ignacio_yufera Cape Sugarbird, endemic to South Africa’s Cape regions. The male’s tail length is variable (can be even longer than this!) and it’s used to signal a bird’s maturity and ability to hold a breeding territory.

Shortlist - Nature inFocus Photography Awards, 2019 I’ve Got Your Back - Robin Biswas (@robin_wildlife) A Pallas Cat emerges with her young kitten, late in the evening. Usually, most of the grooming, cuddling and playing happens inside the den, so witnessing this kind of interaction is rare. The difference in eye colour also adds an interesting contrast.

Can’t stop watching! Posted @withrepost@smithsoniannmnh For #NationalRelaxationDay we share this hypnotic video...of a leech. Its name is Macrobdella mimicus. And it was just described today in the Journal of Parasitology, by our curator of parasitic worms, Anna Phillips, and an international team of scientists. It's the first North American medicinal leech species discovered in 40 years! The orange-spotted, olive-green leech, was found on a field expedition in a Maryland swamp, but the species ranges across the Piedmont region of the eastern U.S. “A discovery like this," says Phillips, "makes clear just how much diversity is out there remaining to be discovered and documented, even right under scientists’ noses."
