A wild horse from Chincoteague Island Virginia. These horses were brought over from Europe in the 1800s and the boat carrying them became stuck off the coast, so all horses swam asshore and remained on the island ever since. #igscwildlife #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #natgeowild #splendid_animals #waycoolshots #wildlife_captures #yourshotphotographer #yourshotphotography #your_best_birds #your_best_shots

Seeing a leopard out in the open is always a thrill, particularly since they prefer much more secluded places!⁠ ⁠ Usually you have to be fast, because these cats try to make sure they are under the security of cover as quickly as possible again.

West Virginia has two subspecies of Painted Turtle -- this lovely lady is mostly a Midland Painted Turtle. Why do I say "mostly"? Because extensive hybridization occurs between the two subspecies (Eastern vs Midland ) in West Virginia. So this particular individual is actually a hybrid, although the arrangement of the scutes (the keratinous plates covering the shell ) tells me that she is genetically aligned with Midland Painted Turtles. Female painted turtles leave their aquatic habitats (slow-moving streams, ponds, and lakes ) to lay eggs on land. They dig shallow holes in the ground and deposit 4 to 10 oval-shaped eggs. Unlike birds, turtle eggs are soft-shelled. #turtle #turtles #herp #herping #herpetology #wildlife #allthatwildlife #wildlifefacts #wildlifephotography #nature #animal #natgeo #exclusive_wildlife #westvirginia #wildandwonderful #animal_sultans #shell #color #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #wildplanet #majestic_wildlife #splendid_animals #wildlifeonearth #bestnatureshot #bns

Looking for a prey ☠️ ..

Here is the final image from my time with the blue-gray gnatcatcher. Since I've spoke so much about my feelings I think I will talk about the bird's feelings. In hindsight, I am pretty sure the bird was actually angry with me. I had been playing calls and songs to keep the bird there and I interpreted it as genuine curiosity from the bird. Now, I believe I had led it to believe there was an unwelcome gnatcatcher in its territory hiding within me. It wasn't trying to be my friend despite how much I want to imagine it was. So I do have that underlying regret as I view these amazing images. I never want to make an animal's life harder, but sometimes I read their behavior wrong. What appears to be tolerance to my human brain isn't always what the bird is trying to get across. Additionally, this gnatcatcher visited me face to face on one other occasion. An occasion where I was not using bird calls. So at least in that instance it had truly come to me through curiosity. Finally, I just want to say how much I love the vibe of this image. It looks like it came from a marsh! These three posts were all taken within the same square 15 feet. ~ April 2020, Killingworth, CT ~ #your_best_birds #bird_brilliance #audubonsociety #earthcapture #nature_perfection #nature #animals #bird_life #birdsonearth #planetbirds #explore #wildlifephotography #naturalconnecticut   #onlyinconnecticut   #yourshotphotographer #raw_birds #changingphotography #shots_of_animals #best_birds_of_ig #nuts_about_birds #splendid_animals #bestnatureshot #birds_adored #elite_worldwide_birds #birds_perfection #lumix #lumixg9 #panasonic #microfourthirds

Close and personal encounter with hares, it still is one of my most intimate moments in wildlife. Couple of weeks ago all the elements ware ideal for sneaking up on the hares in the middle of a field. Being as close as only a few meters observing them while they ate and hid a few times from a few buzzards in the sky is such an amazing experience! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #hare #nikonbelgium #nuts_about_wildlife #nikonnl #animalelite #splendid_animals #shots_of_animals #animals_captures #all_animals_addiction #marvelouz_animals #exklusive_animals #nature #exclusive_wildlife #naturelovers #bns_nature #wildlife_perfection #kameraexpress #nb_nature_brilliance #wildlife #wildlifephotography #discoverwildlife #sharewildlife #your_best_animal #featured_wildlife #earthfocus #wildgeography #yesbbcearth #ourplanetdaily #earthpix #earthcapture
