When threatened, this medium sized heron will stretch its neck out and let the pattern of it's feathers help it blend in with the reeds around it hoping to go unnoticed by predators and kayakers alike.
I've been getting lazy about posting photos because I've had a lot going on, but here is a Northern Fiscal being all mad and puffy.

Absurd vendetta v Chubby pigeon couple
(@rainforestalliance) I’ve read and thought a bit about the recent uptick in new about the Brazilian Amazon burning. The most important thing to me that’s happening is folks are talking about it and learning about some of the issues rainforests in the tropics have been dealing with for years. @rainforestalliance has a great finger on the pulse of the issues and helping communities effected by slash and burn agriculture (one of the primary issues that creates these fires). I fear for the wildlife, the forests, and the people in these communities, I’ve seen a lot of slash and burn agriculture. If this has awoken something in you to get more involved in rainforest conservation,
I hope you take the first step and follow someone like @rainforestalliance who’s bringing awareness at all times of the year to these type of deforestation issues.
Soon after hatching, Killdeer chicks often go on small expeditions to learn about their new world. However, after a few minutes, they run right back to a parent’s safety in the nest. While Arrow was out photographing a Killdeer nest, this chick decided to go explore for the first time. His heart pounded as the chick explored and then came back, allowing him to capture this image.⠀

Male hummingbirds are often very territorial throughout their summer breeding season and fiercely guard their small territories. Arrow was photographing this Broad-tailed Hummingbird’s territory when he landed on a perch close by. He stretched for a few seconds while Arrow fired a few shots before taking off again to chase another male hummingbird.⠀
