Wetlands play many crucial roles. They purify our water and recharge groundwater, act as a buffer for storm water and floods, store carbon, and stabilize shorelines. They are also considered one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems, providing habitat to a vast array of plants and animals. The term 'wetland' refers to lands saturated with water permanently or seasonally where characteristic aquatic plants adapted to wet soil thrive. Those dominated by trees are called swamps. This image was made at Okefenokee Swamp. -------

Ishara and her two latest additions captured by Richard Zaayman during one of his field trips with some very lucky @okonjima_lodge clients... Ishara was born in 2010 and is one of two remaining offspring from our legendary MJ (Maha Junior). She joined the AfriCat | Okonjima Leopard Density Project in 2012. •

I have worked as a photographer for 20 years and I’ve dealt with many challenges along the way. But thanks to hard work and dedication, I am now able to make a living completely from my photography passion. I’d like to share some marketing ideas with you that I hope will help you take your hobby into a more professional direction.
One technique is to employ content marketing. In essence, this means that you create content that can bring value to others and you give it away for FREE. You can do this by creating a website, blog, newsletter or podcast, etc. When you provide this free information to potential clients, you can then also offer other services for a fee. This way people are able to get an idea of your experience and knowledge beforehand and are more likely to hire you. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Are any of you self-employed? What are some of the challenges you’ve faced along the way?

Photo by iLCP conservation photographer Peter Mather @matherpeter-- "An Arctic Fox licks her chops after a caribou meal. I had a really cool encounter with one of the most beautiful creatures on our planet. I spent 2 hours photographing her....slowly moving forward until I was 5 feet away. When I first spotted her she was hiding in an endless plain of snow, by ducking her head in a small hole. Arctic Fox have no real defence from predators, only camouflage. They are one of the victims of Climate Change, as red foxes are following the warmer temperatures North and devastating Arctic Fox populations." Amazing shot, Peter! Thank you for this timeless glimpse into the natural beauty of the Arctic fox. #climatechange #arctic #articfox #globalwarming #conservation #conservationphotography #naturephotography

Papua New Guinea: Tari. "Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the Huliest of them all?"
----------------------------------------------------
To be a Huli Wigmen is to be a Man. Hopeful Hulis usually leave their home at the age of 7 to go to Wig School and learn to be self-sufficient. Growing and shaping their hair is no easy task and requires years. A wig teacher is called a Mambo, and will constantly perform rituals on the boys hairs to help them through their task. Boys may never be exposed to the sun. Indeed, boys should mantain their hair humid and wet for the whole time, in order to grow and shape them successfully.

Beautiful Blue Damselfly. ㅤ

I believe this is a male Blue-Ringed Dancer (Argia sedula), but welcome corrections if you know differently.ㅤ

The males of that species are blue, while the females are brown. They’re known as “dancers” because of their erratic flight pattern. Like their larger cousins, the dragonflies, these are skilled hunters. While some damselflies pluck their sedentary meals from vegetation, Dancers are fans of the drive-thru -- catching their meals mid-flight. ㅤ

Blue-Ringed Dancers are associated with running water, &, sure enough, I found this fellow near a small stream in central Florida. ㅤ

Central Florida, US. Photos taken of wild critters where I find them. No posing, pestering, or baiting. Corrections welcome to my critter IDs. Photo taken with Nikon D750 & Nikon 105mm f2.8 macro lens. Handheld. Diffused Nikon SB-400 flash.

It was great to finally get to meet South Africa's ragged tooth sharks (aka sand tigers) last week at Aliwal Shoals! The raggies are a bit more skittish than their American cousins, but still a joy to dive with! #sharks #sandtigershark #raggedtoothshark #underwater #underwaterphotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #ocean #crystaldivers #nature #naturephotography #teeth #fish #travel #travelphotography #africa #southafrica #aliwalshoal #explore #adventure #conservation #conservationphotography #scuba #animals #getolympus #nauticam #olympusomd #olympusomdem1 #halcyondivesystems #maresjustaddwater

Some of my conservation work for the #bigivy forest shipping out today to the Moss Arts Center on the campus of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA. Very excited to be included as one of twelve artists invited to be a part of the "From These Woods" exhibit; featuring work from and of "the woods". Opening June 8th, and running through August 19th. #dontcutbigivy

Woodhouse's Toad (Anaxyrus woodhousii) require sandy streams, marshes, and river bottoms to survive. The Sandhills of Nebraska contain the necessary habitats for this species of toad to thrive. Amphibians are great indicator species on the health of an ecosystem, having a healthy population of toads can tell us a lot about the ecosystems health as a whole. My previous photo of the tadpole, with some research, I have determined that the indicating markings along the body belong to this species of toad. Being able to see the adult and tadpole life cycles in the same environment is a great indication the management practices of the Switzer Ranch is both beneficial for the ranchers and the wildlife.

Nosso destaque de hoje é uma bela Rã (Physalaemus sp.), fotografada em Sooretama - ES! Alguém sabe a diferença da nossa amiga em relação aos sapos e pererecas?! A Rã prefere viver em ambientes úmidos e alagados e suas patas contém membranas, que a possibilitam nadar. Já os sapos preferem ambientes de terra firme e as pererecas vivem em árvores.⠀

Nada como encontrar una serpiente en el Sendero para encender el corazón de un solo chispazo ❇
Esta estaba muy bien camuflada y debo admitir que fue @jerson_wildlife quien la encontró justo por donde yo había pasado antes.
Esta Serpiente una corredora Mastygodrias melanolomus es otro gran ejemplo de serpiente no venenosa que puede causar mordeduras de cuidado(sangrado profuso de la herida, mareos, vómitos...). Siempre es mejor dejarlas quietas o llamar a alguien que tenga experiencia para moverlas (si es que están fuera de su hábitat). @thecostaricancollective

Florecer
Orquídea Huntleya quizás?
Talvez mis amigos del @monteverdeorchidgarden ó @eladiocruzleiton tienen un ID más claro.
En un área que abarca 23.000 hectáreas y 7 zonas de vida, el Bosque Eterno está entre los lugares más biodiversos del planeta. Aunque representa solamente el 0.0048% de la superficie terrestre, alberga una cantidad completamente desproporcional de flora por citar un ejemplo: el 2% de las orquídeas del mundo 🌍

Serpiente de Leche Juvenil (Lampropeltis micropholis) una especie sumamente interesante los jóvenes poseen una coloracion que asemeja a las corales venenosas.
En su etapa adulta su piel cambia y se vuelve oscura y lechosa entredejando ver sus antiguos colores.
Esta serpiente no está catálogada como venenosa pero aun así su mordedura puede ser sumamente dolorosa y provocar sangrados difíciles de contener. Siempre siempre recomiendo distancia y respeto para cualquier serpiente aún cuando sepamos que no se trata de una víbora.
Entender, conservar y apreciar 💚🐍
Gracias a @katashg_ por el ID tan acertado.

The European robin (Erithacus rubecula) is a small insectivorous passerine bird, specifically a chat, that was formerly classified as a member of the thrush family (Turdidae) but is now considered to be an Old World flycatcher. #ecology #cambridge #birdphotography #robin #wildlife #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #conservation #conservationphotography #animal #animalpjotography #photography #nikon #photooftheday #bird #birdphotography #robinphotography #europeanrobin #springwatch #live_love_wildlife #animal_sultans #igscwildlife

Few things are as beautiful and inspiring as the diversity of life. Celebrate #biodiversityday by getting outside and marveling at the wonder of it all.

Caparo representa el último relicto boscoso de los llanos occidentales de Venezuela, con una superficie original de 184100 hectáreas, quedo reducida a 7000, representa el último refugio para muchas especies, no es un área protegida, por eso la importancia de su conservación, apoyanos a través del Proyecto Mono Araña

Atlantic spotted dolphins inspect the bow of the research vessel Stenella of the @wilddolphinproject. These dolphins love to catch a free ride and surf the bow!

A lone tadpole barely a cm in length, in the red tinted waters of Dry Creek located on the Switzer Ranch in the Nebraska Sandhills. It was a cold 45 degrees Fahrenheit outside and the water probably in the 50s when I got this shot. It was difficult for me to stay in the water for long periods of time, but it was worth every second.
The Nebraska Sandhills are primarily known for the seemingly endless prairies, however, there are streams intermingled among the landscape that provide essential habitat for organisms most may not seem to notice.

Speckled Rattlesnake from the other day. The ONLY snake we found that day. We were hanging at the edge of the road relaxing in the car in the shade while it was too hot to search. After an hour or so, @itsryanfuu looked in the side view mirror and asked us 'is that a snake back there?' 100+ feet behind us, this snake was crossing the road. It crawled off the road and up into this tree. Far from the best looking speck but any rattlesnake is better than no rattlesnake #california #herping #speckledrattlesnake #rattlesnake #snake #reptile #viper #crotalus #crotaluspyrrhus #nikon #macro #wildlife #explore #adventure #conservation #conservationphotography
