Pekin Robin which is a native to China and the Himalayas can reach upto 6 inches in length. It is a member of the Old World Babbler Family and also goes by the name Pekin or Chinese Nightingale. These are quite active birds and highly sociable. Also known for their melodious songs of alternating high-low notes, I find it quite interesting that only the males have an ability to sing. Scientific Name: Leiothrix Luteus Family: Timaliidae #birds #birdsofinstagram #wildlife #wildlifeig #naturelovers #natgeoyourshot #denverzoo #bestbirdshots #birdphotography #animalplanet #birdsofcolorado #colorado #nationalgeographic #photooftheday #conservation

Muqan is a retired history teacher and school principal in Kyrgyzstan. He was raised during the Soviet era and attended a Soviet-run university. Muqan credits the Soviets for their strong emphasis on education which has continued under the independent Kyrgyz Republic. Literacy rates in Kyrgyzstan are estimated to be almost 99%. . Amongst his generation, he explained, there is some nostalgia for the Soviet era. Many people lost their jobs and pensions when the Soviet Union fell and this placed a great burden on some who struggled to make ends meet. . In the photo Muqan wears a Kalpak, a traditional Kyrgyz felt hat worn by men. Felt-making is a widespread craft in Kyrgyzstan. Wool is sheared from the herds of sheep and the woolen fibers are then condensed and pressed together to make a felt sheet. Felt has many uses in the nomadic lifestyle including the lining of yurts to keep the interior space warm. It was a necessity for nomads in Kyrgyzstan during the extreme winter months in this mountainous country. . . . . . #myfeatureshoot #photojournalism #portraiture #magnumphotos #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravel #portraiture #lensculture #hikaricreative #leica #leicacamera #worldpressphoto #kyrgyzstan #centralasia #silkroad #travelholic #passionpassport #spicollective #portraitmood #portrait_perfection #portraits_ig #soviet #sovietunion #discoverportrait #leicam #leicam10 #leicaphoto #travelingram #mytravelgram #journalism
I can’t wait for the leaves to change 🍃🍂🍃🍂
Lots and lots of drama on the lake today. I'm very glad. Considering this is my last day in NH. I'll miss it, but I'll be glad to get back home.
Well-timed stranger.
What is it about an animals eye? Is it that we somehow see the ‘window to the soul,’ where the experience of that animal is clarified by the emotion in their pupils? Or is it that we see ourselves in them? Their grace and simplicity reflects our wildness, a forceful and necessary acceptance of our own wild roots tied to their graceful recognition of our presence. I’ve heard these eyes called ghoulish, creepy, peering... I wonder do they see more than we do? Do they see our silly antics and misplaced identity in the devices we use to photograph them? Do they see me clambering to understand them and laugh knowing I never will? How do I photograph an animal as an animal, without treating it like some subject of a human world? Does this goat know I sat here and thought about all this while it chewed on alpine sedge and bleated at me passively? . . . . . . . . #yourshotphotographer #photography #microfourthirds #outsidebozeman #bozemanphotographer #thephotosociety #natgeoyourshot #bozemanmt #bozeman #montanamoment #lumix #lumixg9 #leica #mountains #goats #mountaingoats #mtngoat #sacagawea #bridgerrange #nayanuki
**Oophaga pumilio** ❤ Sí, esta ranita es una "blue jeans"👖, solo que luce más bien como una "strawberry"🍓. Esta especie, como otras tantas, tienen variaciones en su color. La O. pumilio puede presentar individuos con coloraciones de rojo en el cuerpo y patas azules, otros totalmente rojos y también se han visto beiges. . . . . . #photography #JoselynMirandaGonzalez #costarica #wildlife #wildlifephotography #frogs #oophagapumilio #bluejeansfrog #strawberryfrog #kekoldi #natgeolatam #natgeoyourshot

One of the pelicans at @zsllondonzoo Pelicans are a large species of water bird that can be easily regognised by their long beaks and large, stretchy pouches under the beak that they use to hold water and food.

Ok tenía tiempo, tiempo, tiempisimo que no subía los Médanos. Hoy se me ocurrió la "brillante" idea de subirlos al mediodía, así tipo turista que no sabe que la arena te quema los pies... Y si, me quemé los pies... . Médanos de Coro.
Gran paradiso - a slice of heaven! The 921 m uphill hike from valnontey to rifugio was incredible. The landscape is breathtakingly beautiful with mountains, waterfalls and cascades. We found marmots on our ascend. A place to immerse yourself in nature with walks in quiet solitude, a place to unwind and let go off all the stress! I must have died and gone to heaven to feel this good. . . #aosta #valnontey #cogne #italygram #italy #hike #rifugiovittoriosella #travel #granparadiso #roadtrip #italy #italianlife #wanderlust #europe #travelitaly #igers #igersitalia #wanderlustisamust #mountains #peace #walkuphill #natgeoyourshot #happymoments

Hey! 😎
Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. - Anonymous
Blog post of the day...”eyes are the window to the soul”. My goal as a documentary portrait photographer is to capture the beauty in the eyes of my subjects. Much of my time as an autism teacher is spent teaching children how important it is to look other people in the eye. About 90% of all human communication is nonverbal. Capturing a child interacting with you through a camera is so photographically satisfying - it brings the viewer into the world of that child, if only for a bit. Here are three documentary portraits of children - I’ve chosen each image because they represent my ultimate goal as a portrait photographer. 😊😊
