Despite them being quite common, i have always found it painfully difficult to get a decent Jay shot. Thanks to the Scottish hides (and unintentionally good timimg re COVID-19 ), I now have one I'm satisfied with #bird_captures #bird_captures #picoftheday #naturephotography #photographynature #birds_adored #bird_brilliance #canonphotography #mybestbirds #planet_birds #all_mighty_birds #birdphotography #birdphotos #bestshots #bestshotz #yourbestbirds #birds_perfection #earthcapture #mycanon #nuts_about_birds #igdaily #wildplanet #birds_adored #instanature #birdlover #bbcwildlifepotd #wildlifephotography

Continuing the @wwtslimbridge theme, these are the two North American River Otters, Flo and Ha Ha, that call Slimbridge home. Flo is Mum, and Ha Ha is a remaining twin, after sister Minnie sadly passed away last year. They are enchanting to watch and when the place is open, the feeding time talks are entertaining and informative. Fortunately, I was able to get this shot over the perspex, whilst stood on the low wall; mother and daughter were enjoying the sun at this point, having been chasing around their enclosure at a quite leisurely pace. Beautiful creatures. @wwtslimbridge @rspb_love_nature @bbcspringwatch @newnature_mag @bbcearth @nature .ttl @bwpawards @bbcwildlifemagazine @dphotographermag #earthcapture #bbcearth #ukwildlife #springwatch #newnature #otter #lontracanadensis #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #canon #otterphotography #rspb_love_nature #ottersofinstagram #naturettl #ukwildlifeimages #photography #photographyforwellbeing #bbcwildlifepotd #britain #mydigitalp #birdtherapy #natureaddict #nuts_about_nature

| The littlest elephant

This is the tiniest baby elephant I have ever seen in all of my trips to Africa. It could only have been a day or two old. Live long little fellow - you are so precious.

Coots practicing social distancing⁠ ⁠ It seems we're not the only ones that need to keep our space at the moment. This coot is using its massive claw to try and keep the other one away. ⁠ ⁠ This is a new location I've gone to a couple of times recently. My intention was to photograph Grebes, and possibly swans, but this lake inundated with Coots, The pairs nests lining the shallows around the lakes in relatively close proximity, so it's hardly surprising that a bit of territorial fighting should kick off. ⁠ ⁠ Sometimes you need to take advantage of other opportunities available, rather than being so blinkered by what you were originally looking to achieve. It would have been silly for me to ignore the opportunity of getting some coots fighting in such a perfect setting with the reflection turning the water orange. Particularly in the name of photographing Grebes which I didn't get one image of. ⁠ ⁠ Please #followme @ewancphotography to keep up to date with my journey

Taken in my garden a couple of days ago. It's so lovely to have blackbirds back, I just wish the neighbours' cats would stay away!

This beautiful robin likes to take off from the floor, which is more unusual as the others prefer to be higher up on branches before coming over! Taken before lockdown.

A fishing Grizzly on Kodiak Island/Alaska.⁠ ⁠ Bears are known to eat the most nutritious parts of their food. ⁠ The salmon's brain, flesh and eggs are preferred parts as well as the organs of elk, deer and other mammals. ⁠ As omnivores Grizzly Bears also eat berries, grass and forbs, here they tend to eat them once they are ripe, with the sugars on the highest level. This all is done in an effort to maximise their weight gain. ⁠ ⁠ #kodiakbears #isabeljauss #kodiak #alaska #grizzlybear #bear #alaskan #savebears #bearsofinstagram #visitalaska #kodiakisland #nikon #nikondach #yourshotnatgeo #isabeljauss #NikonGlobal #TravelAlaska #yourshotphotographer #canada_photolovers #imagesofcanada #AnimalElite #nuts_sbout_wildlife #WildlifePlanet #BBCWildlifePOTD #nature_perfection #nb_nature_brilliance #igscglobal #naturephotoportal #femalenaturephotography #EarthCapture@wildlife .hd @splendid_animals @animalelite @world_bestanimal @everything_animals @ig_shotz_animal @marvelouz_animals @shots_of_animals @animal_captures @worldwide_animals_pets @animals_photogroup @animal_shots_ @featured_wildlife

One of the Badger setts near to my home has an entrance under an old oak tree that overlooks a small pond. On the evening I took this photograph, one of the adult Badgers emerged from this entrance in the early evening before leaving to forage for food.

Went on a camera walk today and learned to value the ordinary. This swan was feeding and managed to get this shot. Love the bejewelled water droplets on the neck and the texture of wet feathers of the head, of course that long droplet on the bright beak is also nice.

#WorldSparrowDay | feat. 𝘗𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘳 𝘥𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘶𝘴⁣ ⁣⁣ Known as the house sparrow, 𝘗. 𝘥𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘶𝘴 is a small bird found in most parts of the world. It is one of the 25 species in the Passer genus. The latin word passer, like the english name sparrow, is a term that refers to the small size and agility of this bird.

Hard work is sweet | feat. 𝘈𝘱𝘪𝘴 𝘮𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘢⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ Known as the domestic bee or honeybee, 𝘈. 𝘮𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦𝘳𝘢 is an eusocial insect. Honeybees make their food from flowers. They use the nectar to produce honey, source of sugar, but they also harvest the pollen and mix it to honey and other constituents to make pollen bread, source of protein. They carry the pollen to their hive in special containers on their posterior legs called corbicula or pollen baskets.

Territorial genes | feat. 𝘍𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘴 𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘶𝘴 ⁣ Known as the domestic cat, 𝘍. 𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘶𝘴 derives from its wild relative 𝘍. 𝘴𝘪𝘭𝘷𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘪𝘴. Recent studies suggest that humans didn't domesticate cats, but the animal changed itself to suit humans and live near their agricultural activities which attracted rodents, easy food for them. The whole became a mutualist relationship.

Leaves are greener | feat. 𝘊𝘢𝘱𝘳𝘢 𝘢𝘦𝘨𝘢𝘨𝘳𝘶𝘴 𝘩𝘪𝘳𝘤𝘶𝘴 ⁣ Known as the domestic goat, 𝘊. 𝘢. 𝘩𝘪𝘳𝘤𝘶𝘴 is one of the first animals domesticated by humans. Goats are naturally curious, they are agile and well known for their ability to climb and keep balance in precarious places. This makes them the only ruminant to regularly climb trees.

Tricky appearance | feat. 𝘉𝘰𝘮𝘣𝘺𝘭𝘪𝘶𝘴 𝘮𝘢𝘫𝘰𝘳⁣⁣ ⁣ Known as the dark-edged bee-fly, 𝘉. 𝘮𝘢𝘫𝘰𝘳 is a parasitic bee-mimic fly. The species gets its name from its strong similarity in appearance to bumblebees. This mimicry is used as a defensive mechanism against predators and also allows the fly to get close access to the nests of its hosts (solitary bees and wasps ) Ref: 0494 𝘗𝘩𝘰𝘵𝘰𝘨𝘳𝘢𝘱𝘩𝘴 𝘢𝘱𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘱𝘢𝘨𝘦 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘦𝘹𝘤𝘭𝘶𝘴𝘪𝘷𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘮𝘺 𝘱𝘳𝘰𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘵𝘺, 𝘰𝘱𝘦𝘯 𝘰𝘯𝘭𝘺 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘯𝘰𝘯-𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳𝘤𝘪𝘢𝘭 𝘦𝘥𝘶𝘤𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘤𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘧𝘪𝘤 𝘶𝘴𝘢𝘨𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘳𝘦𝘱𝘰𝘴𝘵 (𝘵𝘢𝘨 @biologistonthetrail ) ⁣ #bombyliusmajor #beemimic #ourplanet #ignature #discovernature #animals #plants #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #photography #nikond5300 #nikon #d5300 #nikonphotography #nikontop #bbcwildlifepotd #yourshotphotographer

Same bird, same location, same perch but 24 hours later. It’s amazing how things can change so much in a day, be optimistic & hopefully the good days will come soon. 🙌🏼 magpies, might not be the most beautiful bird but they are very useful. The roadkill could have been buried in snow if there weren’t any magpies around. But they kept it fresh & visible for the eagles to spot. 🙌🏼 Thank you to all the magpies for their unconditional help 😅💙 • • • • • • #marvelouz_animals #nb_nature_brilliance #splendid_animals #nature_perfection #bns_birds #YourShotPhotographer #EarthCapture #canon_photos #birds_private #mycanon #liveforthestory #grikart_macro #kings_birds #your_best_birds #birdsonearth #cpfeatureme #nuts_about_birds #animalelite #bb_of_ig #wildlife_inspired #pocket_birds #springwatch #bird_brilliance #CanonFanPhoto #birds_adored #best_birds_of_world #BBCWildlifePOTD #pretty_shotz #NatureTTL
