I had to do one in black, quite dramatic. I prefer the colored ones but is was a nice challenge again to do one in black . I had to use more texture. Coming up with new ideas because of a challenge keeps me going.

Uroplatus, like this Satanic leaf-tailed gecko (U. phantasticus) are a genus of gecko endemic to mainland Madagascar. The @WWF have listed them on the ‘Top ten most wanted species list’ of animals harvested for the pet trade. Unfortunately, like many other species, harvesting wild individuals to satiate the demand for the Exotic pet trade remains one of the biggest threats to wild populations. Species are being decimated for novelty and money every day and we need to draw the line... To all amateur reptile collectors 🐍🐢🦎. Save some of the money you spend on Herp stuff (I know it’s an expensive hobby) and take a trip to the places where these animals come from, it’s far more fulfilling to see them in the wild and you will get a deeper appreciation for their function in the environment 👍🏼... The Exotic pet trade is an enemy of conservation... It’s a sad realization but if you really care about these creatures you would do everything you can do to ensure their survival in the wild 🙏🏼... #Madagascar#igersmadagascar#AfricanWildlife#WildlifePhotography#NatGeoAfrica#NatGeo#BBCEarth#RedList#IUCN#CITES#Vulnerable#EndangeredSpecies#Conservation#WWF#Canonrsa#Canon7d#canonwildlife#canonwildlifephotography#VSCO#VSCOx#Uroplatus#Uroplatusphantasticus#Satanicleaftailedgecko#Herpetology#reptilesofinstagram#ExoticPetTrade

The Serval Cat (Leptailurus serval) The serval cat is native to Northern Africa and is at a low chance of extinction. The serval is a carnivore, feeding on birds, small mammals and reptiles which it catches with an impressive 2m leap. The servals are nocturnal and prefer to stay in covered areas in wetlands and savannahs. #africa#africanwildlife#serval#wildlife

Here is a peek at my film, “In the Shadows of Lions,” which is out on 2/27 via @matadornetwork. ⠀ In the intro, there are aerial shots with zebras and a giraffe running. These were captured from a hot air balloon on a telephoto lens, as I do not drone wildlife. The balloons don’t drop to find animals, so the only time you’re close to the ground is at the beginning or end of a flight, which is when I got most of my shots. The balloons quickly rise to 1,000 feet on regular flight paths, so it can legitimately be argued that they don’t disturb animals in parks/reserves any more than a bush plane or safari truck. ⠀ I watched the first rains bring the ungulates back to the Serengeti, and massive herds of zebras and wildebeest galloped around during our game drives. I saw a lioness with cubs, and on my last day, a leopard in a tree. Our guide stuck to the roads, but many others broke the law to get shots of the big cat. There were about FORTY Land Cruisers crowding the leopard and chasing it off road, with some guests yelling at their guides to get closer. While off road laws vary, you are not supposed to harass animals (or drive recklessly and destroy the habitat of other creatures). For viewings, the general rule is 1-2 vehicles per leopard, and 2-4 per lion. ⠀ The animals ARE habituated to cars, and IF the rules are being followed, it doesn’t affect their ability to hunt, sleep or care for their young. Most don’t even give rattling SUVs on the roads a second glance. However, this all changes when humans get too close. If you’re chasing down animals and subsequently endangering their lives for likes and ultimately, for financial gain via Instagram, that makes you an especially soulless human. If people call you out and you delete comments and keep the post up, which is what we all saw a few days ago, that’s even more disgusting. I am not opposed to droning wildlife for conservation purposes (herding or filming for a legit org/publication), but it must be done in an expert manner. Much of what’s on IG does not qualify, as the drone pilots know nothing about animal behavior or the environment. Know better, and DO BETTER — or get off this app.

So many things I like about this photo. The turmoil of the sky and the calmness of the zebra, the morning g dog rising out of umgeni valley. Visiting my mother in amber ridge I kept waking up at 4 am for some reason. Not be being able to get back to sleep I would grab my camera and walk down to the game area and just sit and wait for the sun rise. this particular morning started off looking bad with rain, but as soon as the sun broke through it looked amazing. #zebra#zebrasofinstagram#zebras#safari#africanwildlife#southafrica#wildlifesouthafrica#zebralover#southafricanskies#southafricasafari#ambervalley#umgeni#umgenivalley

Pangolins, or scaly anteaters, are mammals dispersed throughout Southern, Centra
Pangolins, or scaly anteaters, are mammals dispersed throughout Southern, Central, and East Africa. Tragically, they are the world’s most heavily trafficked wild mammals. The trafficking is driven by a demand for meat and also a belief that their scales have curative medicinal properties. Their scales are made of keratin, the same substance that makes up human nails and hair. Humans are taking their toll on this species. The first step toward addressing the problem is to learn the facts and share them. ☮️ @africanwildlifefoundation#pangolins#worldpangolinday#pangolinconservation#trafficking#pangolintrafficking#sharethefacts#worldpangolinday2019#africanwildlife#africanwildlifefoundation#protectwildlife#weshouldcelebratethesebeautifulanimals

Susa B silverback 2.5 Perhaps one of the amazing and touching experiences I've had was visiting mountain gorillas on the border of Congo and Rwanda. This is a budding silverback of the Susa B group, now known as the Karisimbi group, because of their home range high up the slopes of the same named volcano. They were originally part of Diane Fosseys famous research group. Typically found in the most inaccessible areas of the mountains, sometimes taking eight hours of strenuous uphill hiking to reach. Our hike only took five hours, and gained over a thousand meters elevation. So rewarding to see them at the top. This male is unique in that he started turning silver, then the process sort've went on hiatus. Eventually he might take command, but at least for now he's happy being an assistant. Content to lie in the nettles, eat grubs, fibrous plant material, and sleep...a lot. .

Female African bush elephant using her ears to shade her young calf, as they cross the Savannah ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I saw this female African bush elephant and her young calf travelling across Amboseli National Park in Kenya. They were trotting to catch up with the rest of their family group, that were ahead of them on the Savannah. What caught my eye was how the calf appears to be using his trunk to ‘hold on’ to his mother and how she is shading her baby from the extreme temperature of the African sun, using her ears as giant parasols. See how the shadow from her ears is falling across the young elephant’s face and how the baby appears to be smiling! An African elephant's ears can grow to be six feet long and up to four feet wide. The skin on their ears is thin and the blood vessels are close to the surface, so heat can easily be released from their ears. Elephants often flap their ears back and forth, to create an air flow that helps to speed up the cooling process. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #babyelephant#babyelephants#elephantbaby#minielephant#motherelephant#elephantfamily#éléphant#elephanta#elephantparade#elephantart#bekindtoelephants#iloveelephants#elephantlove#elephantsafari#onsafari#safarilife#africanwildlife#wildlife_perfection#wildlifelovers#savannah#inthewild#igswildlife#instanature#naturelovers#nature_perfection#savetheelephants#protectwildlife#worthmorealive#worldelephantday2018#eastafrica

Feeding time at the elephant orphanage ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This little elephant is an orphan. Along with many other orphaned infant elephants, he has been rescued by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Nairobi, where I was lucky enough to encounter him. His mother and family were most likely killed by poachers for their ivory, leaving him alone, traumatised and grieving. Baby elephants are fully dependent on their mother's milk for the first two years of life and continue weaning until the age of four, so DSWT have developed a special milk formula to feed the orphans every three hours and their keepers stay with them twenty-four hours a day, even sleeping with the elephants during the night. DSWT takes in orphan elephants from all over Kenya and raises them until they can be released into the herds of Tsavo National Park and reintegrated back into the wild. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can find out more about the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust @DSWT ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dswt#dswtnursery#orphanelephants#babyelephant#elephant#elephants#africanelephant#africanelephants#elephantsafari#wildlife#africanwildlife#wildlifephotography#wildlifeconservation#conserve#conservationphotography#stoppoaching#endangeredspecies#protectwildlife#savewildlife#jointheherd#worthmorealive#savetheelephants#bekindtoelephants#wildlifephotography#wildlifephoto#nature#nairobi#nairobinationalpark#kenya#eastafrica

March of the gentle giants ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Elephants are the world’s largest and most majestic land mammals. Their name comes from the Greek word ‘elephas’ which means ‘ivory’, but due to illegal ivory poaching there are only two main species of elephant left on the planet: The African Elephant and the Asian Elephant. The Asian Elephant is now an endangered species and the African Elephant is considered vulnerable. Without urgent action to save them, elephants could disappear from the wild within a single generation. We must act to save them now, before it is too late. To do this we have to start with education and knowledge. Without that, the children of the future will only remember elephants as the dinosaurs of the 21st century. #savetheelephants ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #elephant#elephants#africanelephant#africanelephants#asianelephant#wildelephants#elephantfamily#elephantsofinstagram#instaelephant#elephantsafari#safari#nature#wildlife#wildlifephotography#africanwildlife#wildlifeconservation#conserve#conservationphotography#stoppoaching#endangeredspecies#worthmorealive#protectwildlife#savewildlife#savannah#amboselinationalpark#amboseli#riftvalley#kenya#eastafrica@savetheelephants
