Meet Bubblegum... Our awesome western bluey always generates a few smiles! He loves nothing more than giving a big hello kiss on the nose with his blue tongue. They too are a very adaptable animal from the skink family with amazing camouflage ability. They bear live young which can look after themselves from birth and the big blue tongue… Well, that is all a bluff! In the animal kingdom, colours are used to represent poison or danger, sending a strong message to their predators that I am poisonous or would not be a tasty treat. #bluetonguelizard #lizardsofinstagram #funfacts

The image of this #leopard whom we call #luna was shot in Aarey milk colony, perhaps one of the few reaming green hubs in the city. #Aareycolony has been in the lime light for past several years because of the controversies over “development vs nature,” On a positive note, all the “save Aarey” campaigns have tremendous support from the citizens. Few of these Mumbaikars, for whom an evening trail in Aarey is a part and parcel of their routine, are involved in various activities such as tree plantation and nature trails. These water holes have been created for birds by these nature caring people. Wonderfully though, this waterholes have now become a life saving resource for a number of animals, wild and domestic alike. The interest in the wildlife and #environment has been an important part of my life. When I was in college, the story of the legendary leopard “Ajoba” who walked a distance of several hundred miles all the way from Malshej Ghat to Mumbai was one of the main reasons that brought me closer to this passion. It was one of the first stories in India that brought attention to the wild animals surviving and adapting in the dynamic cosmopolitan life. Renowned conservationist Dr. #VidyaAthreyas work on the #wildcatsinourbackyards has always been an inspiration. #saveaarey #leopardsofmumbai #urbanleopards #aareymilkcolony #saveaarey #aareyconservation #dslrcameratrap #cameratrap #nikonindia #everydaymumbai #everydayindia #everydayasia #bbcearth #natgeo #myshot #1frame4nature #saveleopards #wildlife #spottedbeauty #india #conservation #saveus #lonelyplanet #natureinfocus #thecrazymumbai

A Palm-nut Vulture (Gypohierax angolensis) in Meru National Park. Unusual for birds of prey, it feeds mainly on the fruit of the oil palm that it collects by hanging upside down below the fruit and then pulling it off the tree with its beak. It will also eat carrion like most vultures, as seen here waiting patiently above the carcass of a giraffe as all the 'typical' vultures swarmed in. ____________________________________________ #palmnutvulture #vulture #pictureoftheday #pictureperfect #weekendmissions #adventurefervor #naturalbeauty #visitkenya #nikon #wanderlust #bbcearth #bbctravel #travelgram #wildlifephotography #natureloversofinstagram #instapic #instadaily #africanwildlife #see_wildlife #kenya

The Green Mosses . . The Moss growth on the living root bridges of Meghalaya tell you a story, a story of how man and nature found an ingenious way to exist together. The frequent rains make the untouched parts of the roots susceptible to Moss development while the used parts stay sturdy and strong for people to walk across . .

Another one from last night's Matariki Harvest. "Matariki" "The Eyes of God" heralded by the rising of The Plaeidies in the southern hemisphere sky. . "Te Henga" otherwise known as "Bethells Beach" . "Matariki atua ka eke mai I ta rangi e ria, E whangainga iho ki te mata o te tau e roa e." "Divine Matariki come forth from the far-off heaven, bestow the first fruits of the year upon us." Blessings from above as the Maori new year is ushered in. Captured in the small window of clear skies before the clouds came rolling in this is a 9 image panorama, more to come.

When Warkworth castle was founded is uncertain: traditionally its construction has been ascribed to Prince Henry of Scotland in the mid-12th century, but it may have been built by King Henry II of England when he took control of England's northern counties. Warkworth Castle was first documented in a charter of 1157–1164 when Henry II granted it to Roger fitz Richard. The timber castle was considered "feeble", and was left undefended when the Scots invaded in 1173. Congratulations to the very talented @drudodd for this stunning shot of Warkworth Castle.
