Deception Island (actually the rim of an underwater live volcano) was the site of a huge fur seal industry in 1819, but 1822 the seals were finished. In 1904 the whaling oil industry began and collapsed by the late 1920s due to over-supply on the market. Unfortunately, the industry also helped whale populations to collapse. Today, seals blithefully sleep near the abandoned seal and whale industry equipment. #Antarctica http://ow.ly/PaYr50Gs4Vc

Camas Lily (Camassia leichtlinii) These beauties are essential to pollinators, especially native bees. This flower was found at the Camas Prairie Centennial Marsh in Idaho. Along with gorgeous expanses of Camas lilies, the CPCM, which floods in the spring, is also an important resting and breeding ground for migrating waterbirds.

The elk was magnificent, big and strong. There were smaller elk in the herd - and females without deadly antlers. So, what did the wolves understand that a human witness could not see? http://ow.ly/ISOs50Gk8rL

In Yellowstoneโ€™s Lamar Valley, a life-and-death drama plays out in front of Mark Seth Lenderโ€™s eyes. Was the huge, stately elk caught unawares? How was one so perfect be caught? Will it survive? Are wolves killing for sport? Or did the wolves understand something the human eye could not perceive...

A #wolf's life in the wild is not easy. For wolves in the Rocky Mountain regions, like this one in Yellowstone, harsh weather conditions, territorial competition from other wolves, and active hunting and trapping all conspire to keep their lifespan in the wild down to five years.

. Moose What are these moose doing?? They are โ€œsmellingโ€ the air in the search of females ready to mate. They take air into their mouths where it connects with Jacobsonโ€™s organ , an auxiliary olfactory sense. Lions, tigers, horses, zebra โ€“ even your house cat โ€“ all have this reflex.

Snowy Owl Flying: The wingspan of a snowy owl can stretch to 54 to 66 inches (137.2-168.6cm) The females are about 20% larger than the males. Except for their faces they are not pure white, but have a pattern of dark bars marking their feathers โ€“ the females and young have the most patterning. The males are more white.

Thank you for sharing such beautiful photos๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ’
"Early One Morning" So, early one morning while out looking for snowy owls in Canada, we checked out a spot that had a snowy owl sitting on a post an entire afternoon the day before. Sure enough, the next morning she was still there but this time we had some color in the sky as the sun started to peek out from behind the clouds. It turned out to be a good decision to go to this location since within eyesight we had about a dozen different birds to choose from, all with different elements in the frame. Nikon D850 600mm F4 lens w/1.4tc - ISO 320 F5.6 and 1/500sec
"Winters Sentinel" One of my favorite images from being out on assignment recently. I found this snowy owl just sitting on this unique fence and looking like it was guarding it's hunting meadow from any other raptors in the area.
"The Moment" This was the moment we had waited for the better part of an hour. With this beautiful snowy owl perched in terrific spot and with blue hour setting in, she finally decided to take off and hunt. Time was running out, both with the light and the ferry leaving very shortly, I'm glad she decided to entertain us. It was moment I won't soon forget!

Few Facts about Komodo Dragons Komodo dragons are the largest lizards. Komodo dragons can reach 10 feet in length Komodo dragons can weigh up to 200 pounds. Komodo dragons are carnivores (meat-eaters) who like to eat pigs, deer, snakes, fish and water buffalos. Adult komodo dragons are cannibals (eat their own species) and 10% of their diet is made of newly hatched Komodo dragons. Komodo dragons can eat prey that weighs 80% of their own weight. Komodo dragons will eat bones and hooves. Komodo dragons have reddish saliva that contains 50 different types of bacteria. Only one bite induces blood poisoning of their prey.Recent experiments showed that saliva contains venom that probably contributes to a deadly effect of bite. Komodo dragons are great swimmers. Komodo dragon can run 13 miles per hour. Komodo dragon can live more than 30 years in the wild. You can Spot komodo Dragons on Komodo Islands in Indonesia Experience Komodo Islands with Plan trips

Greetings, we seek guidance of how we can benefit from your network. We are located in Midwestern Uganda district known as masindi, we conserve a private owned forest with lots primates including twenty chimps. Any info of where we can get support is welcome.
"Contact" As a wildlife photographer I am always seeking for the perfect image. To get that, you must have some sort of catch light present in the eye. Well, as the sun came up from the east and this beautiful snowy owl was looking that way, the light hit just right and contact was made. It just makes the photo that much more intimate with the audience. This is not a perfect image by any means, especially with some distracting brush in the frame but it's a keeper for me. Hope you like it. Nikon D810 600mm F4 lens w/1.4 tele - ISO 640 F7.1 and 1/1250sec please follow responsible guidlines while viewing snowy owls http://www.destinationwildlife.com/blog/

"The Rock" A harlequin drake duck sits atop a rock along the jetty at the Barnegat Lighthouse in LBI, New Jersey. If you head there to see these awesome ducks please be careful on the jetty rocks. They are treacherously slippery and I myself take no chances here, especially with expensive gear. Nikon D810 600mm F4 lens - ISO 400 F5 and 1/1600sec
"The Queen of Sheba" Ever since this bird appeared on the morning of 12/9/17 I've been infatuated with her. She came in the middle of the night and when I got to the beach I spotted her from the parking lot on a post pertruding high above the dunes. At first I thought it was a seagull because , as you know, seagulls are very large. Then, looking through binoculars, I could tell it was a snowy and a big one at that. It's the largest snowy I've ever seen by far. She only stayed a couple of days and then disappeared only to return this past weekend. Where did she go for those 5 weeks? I don't know but I'm sure glad to have her back. She's so photogenic that I continued to go back there Sunday and Monday too with success on finding her. My favorite snowy owl by far. For now, until I can come up with a better name, I'm going to call her "The Queen of Sheba" Nikon D810 600mm f4 lens w/1.4tele - ISO 500 F7.1 and 1/1600sec
