Nice to see a deer at the end of the garden #roedeer #wildlife #deer

This Running Spider joined us for dinner 💚 We suspect that this is Thanathus, a genus in the Philodromidae family. These are wandering spiders, living a free running life on the ground and on vegetation. They do not use webs for retreats or for catching prey - they rest in vegetation or in cracks and crevices in stones, soil or bark. Philodromidae are ruthless hunters, laying in wait for prey to wander closer, and then they chase and run down their prey... They are small in size, this one was about 10mm in size. They are quite common, and can be found in a wide variety of habitats from the semi-arid Klein Karoo regions to open forest habitats. If this is Thanathus it is the least flattened out genus of the Philodromidae. This one had quite an oval bum, beautiful markings and was covered in spiky hairs. One can look over these small little wonders of nature sooo easily... Family Philodromidae - most likely Thanatus, Running Spider - Overberg, Western Cape, South Africa. #canonphoto #canon #canonphotography #ishootwithorms #canonglobal #bionerds #biodiversity #biodiversityconservation #biosurvey #arachnology #arachnids #spider #spiders #spidersofsouthafrica #spidersofinstagram #runningspider #nature #wild #wildlife #invertebratesofinstagram

Had a relaxing day in the garden enjoying some art therapy. Revamped this old bug box. Other side of the roof was hanging off, it had gone slightly mouldy, faded and peeling. Now it’s sitting beauty once again in my garden. #bugbox #arttherapy #artinthegarden #revamping #oldtonew #flowers #insects #nature #wildlife #wildgarden #insectbox #cute #gardendecor #art #crafts #wood #paint #broken #blue #botanical #botanicangel #relaxinthegarden #gardenproject #gardener #bugs #earwigs #woodlice #spider #kidsnaturegarden

Notes from yesterday’s encounter with a whale carcass being scavenged by 5 tiger sharks off Florida. While it seemed the tigers were only focused on scavenging on the dead whale, whenever I got close to the carcass in the water, the tigers came toward me very boldly, mouth slightly open and teeth showing, which is unusual. I really felt like the sharks were trying to defend the carcass. The sharks would repeatedly approach closely and turn away when within an arms length, but only when I got close to the whale carcass . Awesome Image of the action by @alexanstettphotography for @sharktagging . . More videos to come.

Kaikoura es un pueblecito costero situado en la isla Sur de Nueva Zelanda. ¿Sabes que es uno de los pocos lugares del mundo donde es posible nadar con focas en sus aguas? 💧Eso sí, llévate el traje de neopreno porque el agua está fresquita ❄️ . . #kaikoura #seal #mountain #naturelovers #newzealand #sealcolony #instatravel #explore #purenewzealand #wildlife #experience #growproexperience #viajar #estudiar #trabajar

Just before I took this photo a beautiful barn owl flew across the river, the wind has died down now, this is my favourite time on the boat, I’m going to watch for wildlife. I’ve just had a visit from two very majestic swans who are nesting directly opposite from us. #norfolkbroads #magic #wildlife #nature

Found this nice Magpie tail feather amongst the Daisies... #nature #feather #flowers #wildlife

Here’s 16 year old band stallion, Gray Ghost! This picture is somewhat deceiving as in person you can visibly see his ribs and how slowly he moves. On a positive note, he still has his harem! For how long we will be graced with his prescence , none of us know, but we will cherish him and his beautiful mane until the end. @theodorerooseveltnps @capturenorthdakota @onlyinnorthdakota @northdakotabadlandshorse @medora_nd @wildhorsephotographycollective @northdakotalegendary #ndbhgrayghost #wildhorses #wildandfree #bandstallion #thathair #badlands #theodorerooseveltnationalpark #beauty #wildlife #wildlifephotography #horsephotography #horsesofinstagram

Ah the things we wildlife fanatics do... last summer I was driving through one of my usual haunts and this little critter came bounding across the road ahead. It was so quick I didn’t quite know what I’d seen but it was something different... anyways I backed up and parked my camper on the side of the road and waited... and sure enough this little stoat popped out of the verge... I watched it popping in and out of the verge all the way down a long section of the lane, listening closely for prey. It was surprisingly chilled. Bearing in mind this is a secluded country lane.... Well in order to get close enough for a decent shot... I took my shoes off to be as quiet as possible but also if someone was to pass by... I was running the risk of seeming like a complete loon walking down a lane in the middle of nowhere barefoot... But it’s always worth it! Just smile and wave, smile and wave. Happy Friday! 😀🙃. #keepitwild #wild #instagood #wildlife #oxfordshire #wildlifephotography #stoat #nature #animals #animalsofinstagram

Nurse sharks (Ginglymostoma cirratum) and females in particular are known to bundle together under caves or ledges for many reasons, including a desire to be social and to avoid the opposite sex during mating season, sneaky! 👄 Photographer: Me, @annieguttridge 📸 #nurseshark #nature #wildlife #sealife #uw #bimini #sharkweek #wild #shark #sharks Via: [email protected] #sharksneedlove #sharkweek #sharkweek2018
