Die Brutdauer bei den Steinadlern beträgt in etw 44 Tage. Nach dem schlüpfen bleibt das Jungtier plus/minus 70 Tage im Horst wo es zuerst nur vom Männchen; nach dem "hudern" (wärmen) auch vom Weibchen mit Futter versorgt wird. Nach und nach lässt die Beuteversorge nach, somit das Jungtier nach den 70 Tagen den Horst zum ersten mal verlässt.
Northern gannet coming in for landing! It's amazing how these birds can recognize their owm partner, chick and nest out of the dozens of thousands located in the colony.
The gannets get in that particular position, wings opened to slow down quickly, only for a fraction of a second before landing down. Fortunately for me, there are more a 100 000 gannets in this colony, so I got plenty of opportunities to snap some good "slowing down for landing" shots.
Really?! - many of the nature photos that I take are from one of our wonderful bird sanctuaries - the Esquimalt Lagoon - home to many migrating birds along the west coast of North America. The city of Colwood and their workers do a wonderful job of trying to keep the place CLEAN. UNFORTUNATELY we are OVERRUN by slobs and IDIOTS who see the world as their trashcan. THIS was dumped less than 10 feet (3 meters) from one of the MANY trashcans that the city provides and services. THIS trash could only blow into one of two bodies of water - either the lagoon or the straight of Juan de fuca. Neither being an acceptable choice. If you see someone dumping their trash please do something. If you don't feel comfortable saying something take a photo or video of their action and their car or coalburner and send it to the bylaw enforcement dept in your town or city. May not do anything or it might. Can't hurt to try.
Degrees of light can alter the colors in your photo when editing. This photo was shot backlit with the frog in the shadow and the environment near blown out white. When editing all I did was lower the highlights and the blues from the whites appeared. As I brought up the shadows the green and yellow from the frog had retained its color. ____________________________________________________

Want to thank everyone who showed support on my post yesterday! I read each and every comment and the amount of people who have had bad experiences with off-leash dogs while hiking was overwhelming 👎🏼 However, all these comments helped me feel more confident about the decision to share my opinion on the matter. I never like to get too preachy, but there are things I feel passionately about, and it’s hard to not take advantage of this platform to help spread awareness and education! If there is a topic you’d like me to open up about, leave some suggestions in the comments! 😁
Risso's dolphins are highly intelligent animals who work together to forage for their preferred prey, squid, using a series of clicks and whistles. Risso's are sighted year-round, although they are one of the more infrequently seen species of dolphin we encounter. #whalecapitaloftheworld (📷: @gfanningphotography)
This picture was taken somewhere on the Indian highway where two elephants reach out to each other in a brief moment of love and bonding before being separated from each other for a lifetime of serving man. It’s well known that elephants value their family structure, perhaps more so than many other animals so when they get separated like this they feel immense sadness and pain. And despite scientists finding that elephants are capable of complex thought and deep feeling, they are being killed at an unprecedented rate (by some estimates up to 100 elephants are killed per day) or to be sold as slave labor to be used hauling logs in forest operations or in entertaining and giving rides to tourists. Those unable to work are killed for their meat, body parts and ivory as roughly 90% of African elephants have been killed in the past century and the number of Asian elephants has declined by at least 50% in the last three generations alone. We MUST put an end to this beautiful species’ suffering so please share this post with your followers and tag people, especially unaware celebrities, who need to see it in the comments below! By spreading massive awareness about this sad situation, we can turn things around and come up with potential solutions to save the elephants before it’s too late as at the current rate, they are set to become extinct in the next decade or so if nothing is done!
