Battle scars. Life experience. That unmistakable mutilated nose. The late great Bamera.
.
It’s not hard to believe tourism reports that claim certain tigers bring in millions ($) a year to local economies. Machli allegedly pumped $10M per annum into her reserve, as scores of tourists travelled far and wide for a chance to see her.
.
The same could be said of the mighty Bamera, albeit not at that volume but people came with the hopes of seeing him. My first wild tiger, he was everything his reputation promoted: calm, massive, chill, maybe a bit lazy, yet authoritative.
He had famously overthrown his father, the legendary B2, and went onto a life well-lived before he deteriorated into old age.
.
These are the stories we love to hear about as travellers, and what keeps the legends alive, drawing curious minds and their cameras from every corner of the world hoping to bear witness to these magnificent beasts.

Elephants, only 400,000 African elephants left. Every day 100 of these beautiful, majestic and noble animals are killed. At the turn of the 20th century there were a few million and in 2018 less than half are left. Poaching is a serious issue that needs to be controlled and stopped once and for all. Stop ivory trade now.

Once upon a beautiful morning...
Lots of people enjoy the east and west coasts of the US, but thankfully few remember(or even know about) the gulf coast. Thankfully because the lower population density is so much nicer and makes the beaches that much more accessible and reserved for those who live in the area! 😆
Some argue that gulf coast beaches are the best kept secret for coastal living. I'd have to agree.

Say hello to Madam, the latest edition to Rhino Fund's Ziwa sanctuary in Uganda. She is affectionately named after @rhinofunduganda Executive Director Angie Genade, who has been working tirelessly to protect Ziwa's rhinos for a decade. "The ultimate compliment for me was when staff tried to name a rhino after me, to the extent that I was embarrassed. I really didn't want to take any credit, but the staff signed a petition. So I agreed to the name Madam, which is what many of the staff call me... The police and military guys call me Mama Rhino!". To read more about the good work being done to reintroduce rhinos to Uganda, please read my blog:

Oophaga sylvatica

These frogs have many different beautiful color morphs which makes them vulnerable to the illegal wildlife trade. The IUCN has classified them as Near Threatened due to habitat loss and the international pet trade. The good news is that we are working with organizations that are protecting these species throughout Ecuador. We have lined up a generous donor who will donate $500 when we reach 5000 followers. This will be matched by @rainforesttrust making it $1000!

Happy Monday, friends! I just returned home from a trip to the northern Mississippi River to photograph migrating Bald Eagles. We had the right weather for great photography, very cold, snow covering the ground, clear skies, westerly wind, and lots of eagles. Over the next couple of weeks I will share my favorite shots from the trip, beginning with this adult bald eagle scouting for fish in the Mississippi River, below.

Taman Negara, Malaysia. Ground beetle #2 (Carabidae). Here is a another ground beetle and he has chosen a more conservative suit than yesterday’s beetle — more Bond Street than Via Montenapoleone, I’d say. Conservative it may be, but it has a lovely sheen to it and I think his greatest challenge is likely to be locating elegant accessories. A smart watch, a silk pocket square — dark blue, silk suspenders and a pair of calf skin shoes perhaps?
I’m not much of a dresser myself; I favor a simple uniform of black T-shirts, multi-pocketed pants, a wide belt, and, most important, a good pair of boots. As you may have guessed, I have not the faintest idea as to the species of the beetle I posted.

Making a splash || There are a lot of Pelicans in California and I’ve never thought much of them, but this trip really made me appreciate these birds so much more. Between their bird baths in the mangroves to their ability to put up with sea lion pup ambushes, they display a lot of memorable behavior.

Inwoods” (England)

This is a 59 hectare wood designated as a site of special scientific interest in Wiltshire,UK. The wood is dominated by oak, ash, beech and hazel. Many large beech provide huge circles of canopy.

It contains: -An intricate network of archaeological features such as bronze age rock walls that ramble the area and “Jugs Tomb,” a Bronze Age burial mound.
Also: rowan trees, their berries used by the
Romans to flavour beer.
And more recent elements: two large craters which are Hitler’s Christmas presents of 1940

This is the large beech under which
Roger and Denis and the donkey had their
picnics in the ’30’s and it is where Roger’s
ashes were scattered in 2006. #England #siteofspecialscientificinterest #trees #beech #Wiltshire #archeology #canopy #jugstomb #conservationphotography #eastcoastphotographer #digitalart #contemporaryart #halifaxphotographer #halifax #jmodigliani #conservationalliance #raincoastconservation #conservation_visions

“The Way Through the Woods” (England)

They shut the road through the woods
Seventy years ago.
Weather and rain have undone it again,
And now you would never know
There was once a road through the woods
Before they planted the trees.
It is underneath the coppice and heath,
And the thin anemones.
Only the keeper sees
That, where the ring-dove broods,
And the badgers roll at ease,
There was once a road through the woods.
Yet, if you enter the woods
Of a summer evening late,
When the night-air cools on the trout-ringed pools
Where the otter whistles his mate,
(They fear not men in the woods,
Because they see so few.)
You will hear the beat of a horse's feet,
And the swish of a skirt in the dew,
Steadily cantering through
The misty solitudes,
As though they perfectly knew
The old lost road through the woods.
But there is no road through the woods.

“Bank’s Beeches” England

In 1835, William Banks planted this avenue of beeches for his mother on her birthday. 366 trees were planted on one side and
365 on the other, on this driveway to their house. Beeches are native to the UK and most of Europe. They are slow growing, reach great heights, have shallow root systems and are associated with the feminine. #England #beeches #Banks #housedriveway #nativetree #shallowroots #countryside #rural #colonnadeoftrees #artphoto #photography #conservation #history #conservationphotography #eastcoastphotographer #digitalart #contemporaryart #halifaxphotographer #halifax #jmodigliani #conservationalliance #raincoastconservation #conservation_visions
