Video by @TimLaman. A King Bird-of-Paradise on his favorite perch, tries to get rid of an annoying leaf…. he fails, but still has to practice his dance moves. Never know when a female will show up! Filmed in West Papua Province, Indonesia. Follow @TimLaman for more Bird-of-Paradise coverage this month celebrating West Papua’s declaration as a “Conservation Province”, dedicated to a green economy and sustainable development, like ecotourism.

Photo by @timlaman. Pretty cool to be browsing through the @patagonia IG feed and stumble on my own photo of my daughter cross-country skiing at Bryce Canyon a couple years ago that I’d forgotten all about sending to the company. I’ve been a contributing photographer for @patagonia since they published my first pictures in around 1988. Always loved the products and the environmental ethic of the company and it’s been great motivation to document every family outdoor adventure with pictures. #getyourkidsoutside #skiing #nationalparks #brycecanyon

Video by @TimLaman. Did you know hummingbirds can’t walk at all! Their little legs and feet are only used for perching. But who needs to walk when you can fly and land this precisely. Check out these landing shots of female and male Costas, and young Rufous Hummingbirds. How did I know where they would land? It’s all about being a patient observer of nature. Birds are creatures of habit and often come back to the same perch. Follow me @TimLaman to see my other hummingbird photos and videos as I celebrate the beauty of these incredible little birds. And see my bird photo and video exhibit at Sunnylands through June if you’re anywhere near Palm Springs. #ShotonRED @reddigitalcinema #TL_WildlifePhotoTips #hummingbird #birds, #wildlifephotography #sunnylands #coachellavalley #coachella #palmsprings

Video by @TimLaman. Every once in a while, after all that fast paced wing flapping, you just need a good stretch! Costa’s Hummingbird. Follow me @TimLaman to see more hummingbird photos and videos as I celebrate the beauty of these incredible little birds. And if you’re anywhere near Palm Spring this spring, see my bird photo and video exhibit at Sunnylands. #birdyoga #yoga #ShotonRED @reddigitalcinema #hummingbird #birds, #wildlifephotography #sunnylands #coachellavalley #coachella #palmsprings

Video by @TimLaman. A male Costa’s Hummingbird feeding at aloe flowers. This is shot in slow motion at 75fps, but these hummingbirds are so fast that you can hardly tell it is slowed down by 3x. Filmed as part of my project documenting the birdlife of the Sunnylands Center and Gardens, a sanctuary in Rancho Mirage, California. See my exhibit there through June if you are in the Palm Springs / Coachella Valley area. #ShotonRed @reddigitalcinema #sunnylands #annenberg #birdsofsunnylands #birds #coachellavalley #palmsprings #ranchomirage

Photos by @TimLaman. The beautiful rain forest and a stream in Tapanuli, in Batang Toru, Sumatra, home of the critically endangered Tapanuli Orangutan. Swipe and see what’s happening in places around the edges of this unique forest in Sumatra, and what could happen more broadly if a proposed dam goes through. Dear Indonesian friends, I hope you and your government can make the decision and commitment to protect this world treasure and the unique Tapanuli Orangutan and other species found only in your country. The whole world benefits if you do. Thanks for all your efforts!! #TapanuliOrangutan #Tapanuli #BatangToru #Sumatra #Indonesia #Endangered #EndangeredSpecies
