I think I’m slowly mastering the art of getting in way over my head and figuring things out the hard way. I’m currently out in the Midwest storm chasing with friends @krystlejwright @skiparmstrong @nampix @tobypike and I’m just going to go on record and say that it’s pretty damn rowdy. If I could give anyone a piece of advice that wants to ever do this it’s to BRING EYE PROTECTION. The sand in the foreground here is nothing compared to the full on sand blasting you take as you hold position in nuking high winds! We all had our eyes wrecked yesterday as the wind destroyed everything in its path, blackening the sky with sand. We’re just warming up here and can’t wait for what’s ahead!

@carolinewaregeorge taking a frozen lap on the outer edges of an #iceCave, also known as a #Moulin, in southern #Iceland. These ice features don’t last long once the weather starts warming up, if you zoom in you can see the droplets of melting ice raining down. For @eddiebauer

It’s easy to see why they call this place the #LabyrinthDesert, this place is a photographers paradise. @danahrichardson walking a ridge line at sunrise in #LosColorados, a maze of salt crusted red hills and wild erosion in northeast #argentina 🇦🇷 / @jacadatravel

Wide angle view of a #GreatEgret taking flight. I shot this photo a couple months ago on my good friend @corradophotography’s camera and had completely forgotten about it until he emailed it to me today (thanks Mike!)This was shot in April on a bird photography mission in Florida with @corradophotography @vermphoto and @ianvaso, our second annual rendezvous. Always fun to go shoot with like minded friends, looking forward to next year guys 🤙🏻 / For @nikonusa

Nobody does color like nature, a #GreenHeadedTanager perched on a branch in Iguazú Argentina. As bright and flashy as the plumage of this bird is, it’s surprisingly camouflaged in the jungle canopy and quite difficult to spot. These birds primarily feed on insects and fruit. @jacadatravel @danahrichardson @awasiexperience

A #CheshireMoon setting as the sun prepares to rise on the fiery horizon. The timing of this photo was pure luck, I was at the Red Lagoon in northwest Argentina to photograph flamingos, arriving about an hour and a half before sunrise to stealthily approach the sleeping birds. The smiling crescent moon stole the show and distracted me for easily 30 minutes as I shot 100’s of photos of this beautiful scene. The name Cheshire moon comes from the Cheshire Cat, it’s also referred to as a #wetMoon, here’s a better explanation sourced from Wikipedia - “A Wet moon is a visual phenomenon when the ‘horns’ of the crescent Moon point up at an angle, away from the horizon, so that the crescent takes on the appearance of a bowl or smile. A wet moon occurs when the crescent Moon is low above the horizon and at a point more or less directly above the Sun's (invisible) position below the horizon” @jacadatravel @danahrichardson

A polished piece of ice on #DiamondBeach, flushed from Iceland’s #Jokulsarlon glacier slowly dissolves in the crashing waves. Iceland’s glaciers are melting at a rapid pace, in fact the Heinabergsjökull Glacier in eastern Iceland receded over 1 kilometer in a single year. Glacier melting is one of the biggest threats of climate change, it releases massive amounts of carbon dioxide and directly contributes to ocean sea rise. @sea_legacy

A small wading bird mirrored as it runs across the shallow shoreline of the #redLagoon in Northwest Argentina. Swipe to see the lagoon and a few more photos of this little bird. Getting this close to photograph this little guy was a real patience game but a fun challenge. Photographed with a @nikonusa D850 and 500mm f/4 lens. @jacadatravel @danahrichardson

Iguazú Falls is made up of roughly 275 waterfalls spread out over roughly 1.7 miles. This makes for a welcoming yet difficult decision as a photographer where you should point your camera. Here’s one of infinite angles. #iguazufalls @awasiexperience @jacadatravel @danahrichardson

Dusty sunset over Argentina’s #TolarGrande valley. I love when the sun cuts through the atmosphere like this, creating beams and revealing the layered depth of the mountains. @jacadatravel @danahrichardson #Argentina 🇦🇷

Hummingbirds flap their wings 70 times per second, which is 4200 times per minute! It’s an incredible thing to think about. It takes an excessive amount of energy to do this which is why these tiny birds eat roughly 1.5 to 3 times their body weight in food per DAY! To put that into perspective, I weigh 165lbs which would mean I would be eating the equivalent of roughly 248 - 495 pounds of food per day to match this. 🤯 This little #hummingbird is a #versicoloredemerald photographed near #iguazufalls #Argentina. @awasiexperience @jacadatravel @danahrichardson @fjgirado
