I really love nature and especially animals. I try to study their habits and let them pose in the most natural way. When trying to photograph this frog, he suddenly grabbed the leaf, making it look like he was holding an umbrella.

The Snowy Egret.
📛 Conservation Status ➡️Least Concern 📛.
🔸Scientific name: Egretta thula
🔸Family: Ardeidae
🔸Class: Aves
🔸Average mass: 370 g
🔸Average length: 56-66 cm
🔸Average wingspan: 100 cm
🔸Current Population Trend: Increasing
🔸Life span: 2-17 years
🔸Habitat: mudflats, beaches, wetlands, rivers and lakes.

The snowy egret (Egretta thula) is a small white
heron. The genus name comes from the 
Provençal French for the little egret aigrette, 
a diminutive of aigron, "heron".
The species name thula is the Araucano for the 
Black-necked Swan, applied to this species in error by Chilean naturalist Juan Ignacio Molina in 1782.
‼️At one time, the beautiful plumes of the snowy egret were in great demand by market hunters as decorations for women's hats.This reduced the population of the species to dangerously low levels.
Now protected in the United States by law, under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, this bird's
population has rebounded.
ℹ️Egretta thula has a 71.6% mortality rate during its first year and a 31.4% mortality rate during years 2 to 17. 
ℹ️The oldest egret was recorded in Utah and lived 22 years, 10 months.
🔹The most common courtship display is the "Stretch" display, in which the male pumps his body up and down with his bill pointed towards the sky. The male then produces a call to attract females.
The changing foot color from yellow to reddish orange indicates the beginning of breeding behaviors.
‼️ The population trend appears to be 
increasing, and hence the species does not approach the thresholds for Vulnerable under the population trend criterion (>30% decline over ten years or three generations or with a specified population structure).
For these reasons the species is evaluated as Least Concern.

barbaramanning's Instagram Photo - Wonder if he has x-ray vision with those incredible eyes.
regram @joelsartore
You’re looking into the violet eye of a male satin bowerbird photographed at @ZoosVictoria in Australia. With a greenish-brown plumage, females of this species look vastly different from their almost metallic black male counterparts. However, both sexes share the same striking eye color.
One of the most notable behaviors of the satin bowerbird is their elaborate courtship display. Males build distinctive stick structures called ‘bowers’ on the forest floor which they go on to decorate with colorful and shiny objects like berries, flowers, glass or plastic. As they mature, males’ color discrimination develops and they begin to adorn their bowers with as much blue as possible. As mating season approaches, females will make multiple trips to these bowers before deciding which male will be allowed to breed with her. During these visits, males will perform dances wherein they spread their wings and make themselves appear larger. Some younger females interpret these dances as threat displays and therefore take the males’ decorating skills into much more consideration when making their decision. But, as they grow older, females become more receptive to the dancing and choose a mate who proves to them that he can bust a move.

It’s still Sea Otter Awareness week so I couldn’t help myself making one more post. I’ve got a soft spot for these guys. As the heaviest members of the weasel family, these adorable carnivores are one of the few mammalian species to utilize tools. Sea otters will even keep their own favourite rock, which they use to dislodge and open shells. They’ve got a loose pouch of skin under their forelegs, which they store food in while they continue to dive and forage. Similar to humpbacks, otters were hunted almost to extinction, but an international ban on hunting and a robust effort at conservation has seen them make a remarkable comeback. It’s just one more reminder that we can correct our human errors if we care enough to make real changes in policy. Happy sea otter week, friends. #seaotterawarenessweek #seaotter #turningthetide

barbaramanning's Instagram Photo - How is this little guy for fascinating? Regramming from @amnh
Many features of the axolotl make it unique among salamanders. Found only in a system of water channels and lakes near Mexico City, the axolotl permanently resides in freshwater and retains its larval attributes throughout life--a condition called “neoteny.” It develops rudimentary lungs but retains its external gills into adulthood. Axolotls grow up to 12 inches long, and although there is some color variation, most are dark brown with black spots. They can live up to 15 years in the wild, and possess remarkable survival adaptations. Instead of developing scar-tissue in response to injury, axolotls are able to regrow missing tissue and even regenerate entire limbs. In extremely rare cases, some have progressed to maturity and left the water. Metamorphosis can be induced through thyroid hormone injections.

The axolotl is classified as critically endangered. Habitat loss, water pollution, disease, and the introduction of fish--competition and predators--into their home waters greatly threaten axolotls. The species is also illegally captured for food and medicinal use. Conservation efforts are focusing on habitat restoration, bioremediation, captive breeding, and conservation education. #axolotl #axolotlsofinstagram #salamander #salamanders #amnh #insideamnh

This handsome bird photographed at @theomahazoo is a tufted puffin, a seabird native to the North Pacific Ocean. During breeding season, these birds’ bills turn from a dull red to a vibrant orange and they develop their distinctive golden feather tufts. Tufted puffins are excellent flyers, capable of reaching 40 mph (64 kph) and beating their wings 300-400 times per minute. They are also remarkable swimmers. To catch fish, tufted puffins dive as deep as 80 feet (24 meters) and use their hooked beaks to hold multiple fish at once.

Photo by and words by the Juan and only @juansharks 💙 The researchers have already identified 55 different tiger sharks that visit this area. To me this place will replace tiger beach very soon as the number one hot spot for tiger sharks. French Polynesia covers four million square kilometers of ocean which is the same area as the European Union and is the largest amount of protected water in world for sharks.

This red-bellied lemur named 'Iroquiois' at the @dukelemurcenter is a species endemic to eastern Madagascan rainforests. Research suggests that these lemurs form pair bonds and males have been known to hold their babies just as often as their female counterparts. They are social animals and usually remain in their family groups for their whole lives. Red-bellied lemurs are currently listed as vulnerable on the #IUCN Redlist due to major habitat loss caused by illegal logging in Madagascar and the slash and burn agriculture that follows.

Driving the main roads of Pakistan is always a pleasure, despite frequent traffic, crazy drivers, and long distances. Why is that?

The trucks! The trucks of Pakistan are incredibly bedazzled with all kinds of paintings, stickers, lights, and glittery whirly whatchamacallums.

We finally got to check out a truck art workshop with our host in Peshawar, and learned a thing or two about the truck art process.

The process begins when someone, either a driver or a transport company owner, approaches the truck art workshop about a new job.

The client can pick and choose certain styles from a little pictorial portfolio, and choose to have extra decorative bits and bobs added to the final product.

At this particular workshop, it's common for the client to pay for the truck as well as the art, and leave the purchasing of the truck to the workshop. 
The artists find a truck, strip it down to its bare base, then put on a foundation layer of paint before going to town.

Back in the day painting was the more common method of pimping out a truck, but these days stickers are the preferred method. More weather proof, ya know.

Truck and art together goes for about 35 to 40 lakh rupees, or $40,000. Not bad considering you're getting the whole shebang. 
Basic art alone costs around $5000, which is a lot in this part of the world. Especially for truck drivers.

After about one month, the client can drive their spiffy new Pakistani truck out of the yard and onto the road.

Pretty sweet, eh? And would you believe that this truck is relatively plain for Pakistani standards? 😯
