Photograph by @paulnicklen // On behalf of all cetacean species on this planet, here is to celebrating #WorldWhaleDay . In today’s day and age it is getting more and more challenging to find success stories in nature. Fortunately, humpback whale populations have bounced back to near historic numbers after nearly being hunted to extinction in many areas. What species of cetacean is called a whale but in reality is a dolphin? Go to @paulnicklen to find out. #follow#whale#nature#naturelovers#instagood#sunset#beauty
Happy Fish Fry Friday 🐟
This isn’t just another Eagle fishing shot - this Eagle 🦅 was fishing in the Gulf of Mexico and landed on the beach to eat his freshly caught cat fish! In all my years of eagle watching (9 years) I’ve only seen them on the beach one time. They often prefer the easier fish in the still inland ponds or they venture out far over the gulf and become a small speck! This was a special treat - saw him landing and it happened to be very close by - she was maybe 15 meters away - the large female that has been busy building the nest! When asked if this was a “secret” Eagle 🦅 location - definitely not, what it’s about is timing - the chances of them fishing the gulf while you happen to have a camera in hand - that’s the secret! You might be in the right place but are you ready to catch the action? As I once hear - the best camera is the one you have at the moment (this was the older version of the 109-400mm lens) and I’m happy I was there to watch this amazing sight!!! Happy Friday - hope you all catch many wonderful sights too!!!
