All those little specks you can see are wildebeest... This is one of my final photos from Kenya this summer, and as this lone wildebeest looked back at me, I said goodbye (for now) to the majestic #masaimara.

Thanks for looking.

Reluctant to post wide angle shots on IG, but I thought it was worth sharing some elephant fun at the watering hole. 
What a place - lions, a stunning Kudu bull, a lone hippo and now this herd of elephants.

Another great day out with the camera!

One of only approximately 20,000 white rhinos on planet earth.

As I write this, it’s still difficult to comprehend that we as Homo sapiens (laughably “wise men”) seem intent on destroying the planet.

I count myself as very, very fortunate to have been close to this beautiful creature.

In the past five years or so, it seems that the focus is on building a tribe of followers on Facebook / instagram / others.

What if the same focus was put into conservation?

Here is the view of Balakot Valley. Seems like the wall painting comes alive. Small village along the endless river gushing into the horizon. Tbh, i can sit there for hours and do nothing except enjoy the show.🇵🇰

It's always good to wake up with a beautiful sunrise 😊❤️😊 #earthwonder #beautyofearth #earthmagic #amazingsunrise #amazingday #amazinglife
This is one of my personal favorites from my collection.

Watching this elephant from a distance on a very overcast day, eventually it became curious and wandered closer toward me. 
What I found amazing at the time (& still do!) is the lack of noise around these majestic beasts when they walk through the bush.

Biding my time, I waited patiently for the light to change in the hope of capturing a special moment. I think it was worth the wait.

Hope you like the final photo as much as I do.

Few numbers for you:

10 
7,136
30,000

10 years. A decade. 
7,136 Rhino killed for their horn across that time (& for what?). 30,000 - an estimated population of Rhinos left worldwide across five species (black, white, greater one horned Rhino, Sumatran and Javan). I saw a post recently that alleges that Rhino poachers testicles can cure people of all manner of ills and diseases (😉).... Now there’s a thought... Thanks for looking.

"Ssshh. Don't tell her she looks awful in those stripes"

Did you know each zebra's stripes are as unique as fingerprints, and each of the three species of zebra (Burchells, Grevys, and the Mountain) has its own general pattern?

"Massak"

Arctic wolf (canis lupus arctos). This wolf is called Massak, which means soft snow in the Labradoran Inuit language.

The off white colour is caused by taking this shot in the golden hour of the setting sun.

The morning sun when it's in your face really shows your age... Really pleased with the outcome of this lowlight shot as the sun was starting to rise. If I'm not mistaken, this is Lipstick from the ridge pride of the #masaimara in #magicalkenya.

An old male buffalo. Sadly I think it was getting to the end of days for him as when he left the mud, he fell further and further away from the safety of the herd.

Something a bit different.

Talking with a friend the other day about my photography, the conversation went something like this: 'Taking photos of predators always gets people's attention Mike. Bet you can't get the same attention from something more mundane'. 'What like?' 'A cow' 'Challenge accepted'. What do you think? Leave a comment and let me know.

This photo is of a highland cow (Bos (primigenius) Taurus), which is a Scottish cattle breed.

The last zebra... Maybe not. But what if it was? Stop for a moment and consider the following:

Human numbers have grown exponentially within the last hundred years, from fewer than two billion to over seven-and-a-half billion.

These numbers are projected to grow by an additional four billion (!) within the next 80 years, driven by increasing life expectancies, a continuing high birth rate in some countries, as well as ‘population momentum’— the effect of growing numbers of people themselves having children.

How much longer before we deplete all natural resources?

A pair of mating grey crowned cranes (Balearica regulorum). This species of bird is monogamous and they pair for life.

As depicted here, when courting a partner they perform what is referred to as a nuptial dance. This involves a range of bobs, bows, jumps and calls made by inflating the gular sack. Either gender can initiate this.

Breeding may occur year round but there is a peak from December to February in response to rainfall.
