Flashback from about ten days ago from southern Finland, my balcony and our island, when we finally got here some wataaa! 😍 So large drops in one picture, even visible by lousy old iPhone. The rain was so hard couple of times, it took sands off the roads and moss off the rocks. Praying for Freyr to give us much more 🙏 Or wich higher power there are? Rothchilds? We need to reduce our consumption anyway, so why not get use to it right now? This is getting ridiculous even to us Finns 🤨 #nordicgods #raindrops #preservenature #weneednature

A herd of elephants in their natural habitat at Manas National Park in Assam. Today is World Elephant Day. These gentle giants which once roamed freely throughout the Indian subcontinent have now become confined to small pockets of wilderness available to them in the form of sanctuaries and national parks. They are threatened and endangered largely due to loss of habitat, deforestation and poaching. . . . #elephants #asianelephant #manasnationalpark #assam #weneednature #sanctuaryasia #natureinfocus #incredibleindia #natgeoindia #natgeotravel #discoverearth #worldelephantday #wildlifeindia
This world belongs to babies. Never forget that we have borrowed it from them. The least we can do is to hand it back to them in the same condition if not better. On WORLD ELEPHANT DAY, lets pledge to make our forests safer for the next generation of this majestic gentle giant. . #WeNeedNature #nature #wild #biodiversity #forest #wildatheart #wilderness #photography #incredibleindia #ecosystem #conservation #sanctuary #indianaturally #elephants #water #animal #animalworld #mynikonlife #nikon #nikonasia #nofilter #nofilternikon #herbivores #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeowild #Nagarahole
Fun Fact Friday! Did you know Red-shouldered Hawks return to the same nesting territory year after year? One Red-shouldered Hawk occupied a territory in southern California for 16 consecutive years! And, by the time they are five days old, nestling Red-shouldered Hawks can shoot their feces over the edge of their nest. Bird poop on the ground is a sign of an active nest. 😬 We have a number of Red-shouldered Hawks at Ridgefield, come see for yourself, any day of the week: https://ridgefieldfriends.org/visit-the-refuge/ Photo Credit: Gary Davenport- 3rd Place 2017 Refuge Photo Contest Winner Submit today for the 2018 competition: https://ridgefieldfriends.org/news/2018-ridgefield-nwr-photo-contest/ #funfactfriday #redshoulderedhawk #optoutside #weneednature #wildliferefuge #walking #hiking #photography #Contest
Leopards are master hunters, more successful than tigers, despite being four times lighter than them. They feel at home in trees and stash their kills up in branches, out of reach of other predators such as lions, tigers, wild dogs and hyenas. . #WeNeedNature #nature #wild #biodiversity #forest #wildatheart #wilderness #photography #ecosystem #conservation #sanctuary #leopard #animal #animalworld #mynikonlife #nikon #nofilter #nofilternikon #carnivore #carnivores #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeowild #masaimara #kenya #wildafrica #africanwildlife #safariphotograph #maasaimara
I always feel a little sad when posting nice pictures of nature because there is a lot that you can’t see, people say oh how wonderful but they don’t see the trash and water pollution that infects those water ways and the surrounding environment . I am blessed to be living so close to some more or less “unharmed” places, but still see signs of our human presences everywhere. I spent less then an hour in this location and picked up a bag full of empty beer cans... 😑😑 why do people have no respect, they want to come and enjoy the scenery because, of course, it’s beautiful, but don’t have the balls to throw their trash in the garbage (even tho it’s been made easily available to them) which is the least they could do to keep these places clean and healthy. Our beautiful river at home has gone from blue to Brown in a matter of hours due to a town up river dumping raw sewage in it and now we cant go fishing anymore. Even the bird sitting by the river looked sad about it 😓 Enjoy our planet while she’s still here, appreciate our nature while you still can, respect our mother for our future and hers. Nothing hurts my heart more then seeing her suffer 😢💔 #respectourplanet #natureisawesome #waterislife #weneednature #polution #water #river #rant #weneedchange #love #nature #photography #waterfalls #mypicture #myhome #natureishome #hurting

Master Hare hiding in the field. - About a month ago the fields were nice and green. It was enjoyable to see nature alive and everything flowering. Now, the fields and woods are dry, brown and damaged. The extreme drought in Europe leaves a tremendous mark! The problem: We need nature, nature doesn’t need us. I believe that I can contribute to both with my conduct: To change for the worse as well as to the better for nature and our planet. I hope I do the latter more and more. #naturelove #natureseeker #preservenature #drought #bushcraft #woodcraft #wildlife #naturephotography #hare #wildanimals #climatechange #klimawandel #insgrüne #getoutandexplore #inthefield #inthewoods #weneednature #ourplanetdaily #ourdailyplanet #natgeonature #natgeowildlife #geomagazin #wilderness #sparksandnature #menofoutdoors #outdoorsman #feldhase #naturpur #natureislife
Short-horned grasshopper. There is something about the eyes of grasshoppers that lures me towards them. Although active throughout the year, they are synonymous with monsoon, and are by the most important source of protein for a plethora of animals, especially during the all-important breeding season. . #WeNeedNature #nature #wild #biodiversity #forest #wildatheart #wilderness #photography #incredibleindia #ecosystem #conservation #sanctuary #indianaturally #plantworld #mynikonlife #nikon #nikonasia #nofilter #nofilternikon #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeowild #SGNP #Mumbai #insects #herbivores #macro #micro #grasshopper
Kanha. Characterised by tall and evergreen #Sal trees with #meadows everywhere, these forests are as magical as they can get. And in winters, the magic is at it's peak with misty mornings and shining dew drops. A relatively chilly morning while walking along a mud path I came across Sambar deers feeling the golden light of the sun, shining through Sal tree. Forest promises to be a delightful experience for photography lovers with such fascinating natural scenes. There's never a dull moment in the wild, there's activity always, to remind you of the wonders of the forest. #weneednature #nature #wild #mother #fawn #biodiversity #forest #wildatheart #wilderness #incredibleindia #conservation #water #animal #canonindia #canonlens #madhyapradesh #mptourism #kanha #nationalpark #ncbs #conservation #athomewithnature #wildlifeindia #jungle @natgeo @natgeoyourshot @natgeowild #explorer #explore #travel
Octopus 💚 . Close up of the gorgeous creature living at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, Devon. I find them really fascinating. . #canon #photography #hobbyphotography #underwaterphotograph #aquarium #aqua #sealife #marine #nature #devon #octopus #closeup #naturephotography #natureisbeautiful #fascinating #weneednature #conservation #protectocean
Showing off. . I was lucky enough to observe this fascinating creature full of life, after the octopus was fed, it was truly showing off in the tank, obviously having lots of fun. . Nature is beautiful. Aquatic photography is challenging, this is probably my favourite shot of the day. Shot with Canon 7DM2 and Sigma 18-200mm 3.5-6.3. Thank you for your interest. . #canon #photography #hobbyphotography #octopus #marine #ocean #conservation #aquarium #fascinating #amazing #sealife #iloveanimals #ilovelife #bekindtoanimals #weneednature 💚
Do you prefer solo adventures or travelling with a friend? I usually end up adventuring on my own most of the time so when someone comes along for the ride it is a nice treat.

How do I describe how I feel right here, revisiting Lake on the Mountain in beloved Prince Edward County, the light sparkling on the blue waves, the breeze that brings relief, the soothing, fulfilling sound of water moving? These are the words that came to mind in the moment as I tucked the experience into my memories: While the waves are steady, the wind moves in unpredictable ways, like gentle thunder in your ears. #ilovenature #naturegirl #naturesoul #natureisbeautiful #water #lakeonthemountain #canadian #canadianviews #canadianlakes #princeedwardcounty #beautiful #beautifullake #nofilter #nofilterneeded #weneednature #natureneedsus #wearenature
The reptilian tongue is a marvel of nature. It enables the animal to see even in pitch darkness!

This is a small snapshot of ONE landscape that has influenced my life, made me human, given me value and purpose. How could places that give us so much be so under-valued?

Our @youthconservationcorps crew gets to have a lot of fun while working hard to take care of our Refuge, check out this cool arthropod that they found while digging with hori horis. You too could experience cool bugs (or not, if you don't like bugs we can work with that!) or visit areas of the Refuge not normally open to visitors, then sign up to restore habitat with us today: https://ridgefieldfriends.org/habitat-restoration/ Any ideas what this beetle may be?

The Giraffe Weevil derives its name from an extended neck much like that of a giraffe. The neck of the male is about 2-3 times that of the female and assists in fighting and nest building respectively. During the breeding season the female rolls a leaf and then lays a single egg within the tube. . #WeNeedNature #nature #wild #biodiversity #forest #wildatheart #wilderness #photography #incredibleindia #ecosystem #conservation #sanctuary #indianaturally #plantworld #mynikonlife #nikon #nikonasia #nofilter #nofilternikon #natgeo #natgeotravel #natgeowild #SGNP #Mumbai #insects #herbivores #macro #micro
#Repost @shakadiver • • • • • The #redtide on the western coast of Florida along the Gulf of Mexico is killing just about everything in its path. So far there have been 287 sea turtles that have been found dead or are dying due to the red tide. A red tide is when algae blooms explode in population producing toxic or harmful effects on people, fish, shellfish, marine mammals and birds. Man made pesticides, treated sewage water and other farm fertilizers wash out to the ocean and are fueling the harmful algae bloom. The toxins if inhaled or ingested affect marine animals nervous system and cause them to die. The marine animal then becomes poisonous to other animals that eat them, thus creating a toxic ripple effect that can kill an entire food chain. Not only are sea turtles dying but also a rare young whale shark that washed ashore in Sanibel Island last week. The shark and turtles all tested positive for k brevis algae which is the toxic type of algae. These are only the casualties that have been documented or seen. The majority of red tide deaths sink to the bottom and are never reported. This red tide has washed onshore at the worst possible time; turtle nesting season! Now sexually mature sea turtles are coming to the beaches to lay their eggs and are dying from exposure to the toxins. This will likely cause another harmful blow to the already endangered and threatened sea turtle populations. This years red tide is also harming public health. People in close proximity to the red tide need to be extremely cautious. Symptoms include tearing eyes, sneezing or coughing and if ingested severe nerve damage. It’s time to clean our waters and stop turning our back on the ocean.

#moi #haastammehyvään sinutkin! Tulimme juuri iltakierroltamme. Mukana oli tyhjä muovikassi, joka valitettavan nopeasti täyttyi roskista. Kassillinen muovi-, kartonki- ja metalliroskaa vietiin luonnosta lähimmälle kierrätyspisteelle. Kuvassa vasemmalla, biojätevastaava hoiti luonnosta pois leivän, omenan ja koirankakkaa 👌Tuli #hiki #puhtaampiluonto ja #hyvämieli . Jos ei sama inspaa, pliis #äläroskaa 🌱 #weneednature
The always alert #sambardeer resting on soft and comfortable sand of a dry stream. Journeying around #forest roads joking about tigers crossing our way. We walked to collect scat samples for our #research on #carnivore #genetics . The road flanked on both sides with lush green curtains of forest trees. Far away from the madding crowds of our cities, my heart found solace in the cradle of nature. #penchtigerreserve gets its name from Pench #river . The river beautifully blue with small green and yellow islands dotting it. Magical Colors created over land. Also, the land that inspired #rudyardkipling to portray the exciting and adventurous jungle upbringing of #mowgli in the timeless classic #thejunglebook . Man and his creations are belittled in the presence of awesomeness of nature. #weneednature #nature #wild #biodiversity #forest #wildatheart #wilderness #incredibleindia #conservation #animal #canonindia #canonlens #madhyapradesh #mptourism #tigerreserve #nationalpark #ncbs #athomewithnature #wildlifeindia #wildlife_vision
