I see on the news today that the Duke and Dutchess of Sussex are visiting K’gari (Fraser Island). I hope they get the chance to see some of Australia’s beautiful wild dingoes just like this individual who lives in the Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia. During the wet season dingoes will often hang close to water holes as the chance of finding food is higher and the desert heat is brutal!

Happy #internationalslothday! A day to celebrate and to raise awareness for one of the most adorable animals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the photo you can see a Pale-throated Three-toed Sloth (Bradypus tridactylus) mother with a baby. Yes, look closely! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The cuteness of sloths have downsides. A lot of sloths in the Amazon have their home torn down, are being slung in a bag and then forced to act as a photo prop for the rest of their life. For this reason you should never pay to make a selfie with a sloth. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sloths depend totally on rainforests to survive. Sloths are threatened by habitat destruction and other human interference. Power lines are a huge problem for these sloths. If they grab a live wire during a storm, they may get electrocuted. Roads are also difficult to cross safely for these slow creatures. Too often, mothers are found hit by cars with their babies still clinging to them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feel free to follow me on Instagram. :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wildlife #photography #wildlifephotography #nature #animal #animals #naturephotography #photo #naturephotographer #sloth #wildlifephotographer #sloths #wildtropics #slothsofinstagram #naturelovers #nature_perfection #internationalslothday2018 #wpeditorschoice #wildlife_perfection #wildlife_seekers #wildanimal #biodiversity #suriname #bbcearth #earthcapture #wildlifeplanet #conservation #slothlife #slothday @bbcearth

One of my big loves is shooting into light. It always produces soft light if you can control the highlights. Here a White-faced Heron peeks over the reeds on the edge of the local lake.

This is the male South American Common Toad (Rhinella margaritifera). Females have an extremely large cephalic crest, males much less so. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have used this composition to show the crest and the dorsal line. Both are distinguishable traits of this species of toad and therefore interesting to photograph. Wildlife photography is a way to tell stories and to show animals in the most attractive way. Attractive can be a very creative and artistic composition, but also just showing the most interesting traits of the species. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have have not used the wide-angle lens for the obvious reasons. I could have used a macro from above to achieve the same goals (the crest and dorsal line). I already had a photo like that, and I tried something different. With the 100mm macro I could not have the crest and dorsal line both in focus. Using 35mm made it possible! ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feel free to follow me on Instagram. :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wildlife #photography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #nature #earthcapture #frog #amphibian #amphibians #herping #biodiversity #frogsofinstagram #wildlifephotographer #herpetology #animal #animals #naturephotographer #fieldherpetology #macro #fieldherping #photo #everydayextinction #naturelovers #wpeditorschoice #frogs #biodiversity #bbcearth #wildtropics #conservationphotography #conservation @bbcearth

“The dinner table”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I found this fascinating scene while walking through the basecamp on Brownsberg. I saw a dead gecko laying on his back being demounted part by part. After this shot I saw an ant walking away with a foot. It all looked creepy, but as a biologist I find this very interesting. It is “the circle of life” at work. No nutrients will go to waste. All the ants were walking around and eating parts like they were having a big dinner table. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Feel free to follow me on Instagram :) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #wildlife #photography #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #nature #herpetology #macro #entomology #reptile #reptiles #lizards #wildanimal #lizard #naturephotographer #animal #animals #earthcapture #wildlifephotographer #macrophotography #fieldherping #ant #biodiversity #conservation #bbcearth #wildtropics #wpeditorschoice #insitu #reptilesofinstagram #herping @bbcearth
