Photograph by @paulnicklen // At this moment, I am en route to @natgeo headquarters for their annual photography seminar. I look forward to seeing my peers, friends and colleagues with my ears and eyes wide open like these bat-eared foxes that I photographed a few days ago on Kenya's Maasai Mara. There is always so much to learn from these inspirational people. #followme on @paulnicklen to see my favorite images from my first trip to #africa. Now, it is time to get back to work at #turningthetide with @sea_legacy. With @cristinamittermeier #nature #gratitude #wildlife #photography

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // A juvenile Mountain Gorilla munches on a leaf in the highlands of Rwanda. Less than 1000 of these beautiful apes remain in a handful of populations in Africa. I was lucky to spend a few hours with them and to observe their loving family interactions, gentle attitude, and playful nature. A truly unforgettable experience. #followme to see more images of Wildlife at @cristinamittermeier With @PaulNicklen @Sea_Legacy @EPixNix and @LNixPix #nature #kin #beauty #photography #friendship #gorila #animales #wildlife #wildlifephotography
Photography by @stephenwilkes. "WASHINGTON, Jan. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — 2018 marks the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the most powerful and important bird-protection law ever passed. In honor of this milestone, National Geographic, the National Audubon Society, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and BirdLife International will join forces with more than 100 other organizations and millions of people around the world to celebrate 2018 as the "Year of the Bird." I am greatly honored to have been a part of this wonderful celebration. This past summer I was on assignment for Nat Geo photographing a story on bird migration. While soaring above one of the world’s largest flamingo populations, the migration forms a majestic natural tapestry against the unique volcanic region that is Lake Bogoria. The lake is home at times to one of the worlds largest populations of lesser Flamingos. I am very excited that this work will appear in the March issue of National Geographic and my Day to Night photographs from this assignment will be exhibited at the National Geographic Museum in February.

Photo and caption by @petekmuller. A group of giraffes move across the plains during an evening game drive in Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve. In my experience, giraffes are among the more skittish creatures on the savanna, often taking flight well ahead of human encroachment. While giraffes timidness is understandable, their hasty departures leave me disappointed as they are, undoubtedly, one of my favorite animals. Regal and seemingly genteel, giraffes possess and endearing combination of grace and humility that always leave me mesmerized.
