The Ranch has its own garden, a carefully tended oasis permeated with the divine smell of eucalyptus and herbs. The Ranch's chefs and bartenders wander down here daily to select produce and flowers, or to simply gather inspiration for dishes/drinks/floral arrangements in the making. This salad has to be one of the tastiest things we've enjoyed in 20 weeks of travel, every leaf, every tomato hailing directly from the garden. If you're in Laguna Beach, come by the (very affordable) restaurant for a meal. You won't be disappointed.

African honey bees (4)

Water is a crucial requirement for bees to survive, as it is with any organism. Water is used for diluting honey, keeping the hive cool and brood-rearing. When water is in short supply (for example when temperatures are soaring in the Kalahari in the early summer months before the rains arrive), African honey bees will even resort to making use of carcasses to get the moisture they need.
.
In this image, honey bees are gathering mineral and salt-laden water from the carcass of a gemsbuck killed by wild dogs.

"Pangolin are highly specialised eaters as their diet consists of ants and termites, which they catch with their long tongue. Since these nocturnal animals are relying on such limited food sources they need a very distinct habitat which Tswalu in the Kalahari offers.
.
Sadly, the pangolin is not only on the critically endangered list but is also THE most trafficked animal, prized for its meat and keratin scales, which are used for similar purposes as rhino horns.
.
It was a huge privilege to have an opportunity to see and follow this scaled mammal at night on its search for food. Thank you James and Barry for making this one of the rarest, most unforgettable and unique sightings for me."

This year, a veritable outport celebration is in store when Fogo Island's annual Partridgeberry Harvest Festival coincides over the holiday weekend with a very special live performance at Fogo Island Inn by Newfoundland-born musician @heytimbaker, formerly of Hey Rosetta!. Tim’s Juno-nominated, Polaris-shortlisted band brought poetic, powerful alternative music and sweeping, high-energy live shows to the world for over a decade. Now embarking on creative projects as a solo artist, his intimate post-supper performance at Fogo Island Inn will see him debuting new material prior to official release.

Okay. We're a tragedy. We brought shame to The Ranch's legendary golf course. But, man, did we have fun doing it! (If I'm going to have my very first golf lesson, and that lesson is going to be captured on camera, then turnabout is fair play. Scroll through for everyone else's turn!) What a great morning. Thanks to instructor Ryan's tutelage, I had one epic drive where everything clicked (not captured on camera, of course), and now I can better understand why millions of people love this game.

Raise your hand if you love the log cabin life! 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏼‍♂️ During my partnership with @travelmindset & @travelmanitoba to explore Churchill, we stayed at Lazy Bear Lodge on the town’s main street, Kelsey Blvd. Manitoba-born local Wally Daudrich began dreaming of a Lodge in the 1980’s while working as a Polar Bear guide, and realized his dream when he began building the Lodge in 1995. It was completed in 2005. Wally, Dawn and their kids have poured their heart and soul into it, sometimes with only hand tools. The timber was reclaimed from a fire in the boreal forest, the windows were recycled from an 1800’s Hudson’s Bay trading post and the floor is recycled Douglas Fir from a Canadian National Railway warehouse built in the early 1920’s! Two greenhouses are now part of the business ensuring the Lodge’s kitchen doesn’t haven’t to depend only on what can be flown in; and there’s all the tours, guides and boats that come with @lazybearexpeditions, also owned by Wally. He’s a busy man! I enjoyed staying at the Lodge because it felt like grown up summer camp, so similar in vibe to where I went in Michigan’s U.P. every summer as a kid. I loved that camp so much I returned to be a counselor when I was too old to be a camper. And just like me, I met people who return to Lazy Bear every year over and over; always in search of that special magic the Lodge, Churchill’s locals and wildlife have that’s difficult to put into words. And with every season being different, I understand the appeal. I already want to return too! 🐻 #ExploreMB #ExploreCanada #lazybearexpeditions

“Growing up as a kid In a Wisconsin, I ventured out West as much as possible. After visiting a buddy who was lucky enough to call Montana home, I fell in love with every aspect of the state. When the opportunity arrived to work at The Ranch at Rock Creek for the summer and call the Pintler Mountains home, I jumped at it. It’s four months later, and I have no intentions of leaving.” | Ranch Life Takeover with Driver/Guide Kellen Binger 📷@kellenbinger |

African honey bees (3)

Swarms in the wild will make use of almost any nesting site that offers a suitable degree of protection from the elements as well as from predation. Hollow trees, rock crevices and termite mounds are all suitable nesting sites for bees but, just as often, human structures will suffice. .
.
The image shows a still-small colony that has taken up residence inside an electrical box – the beautiful hanging combs are clearly discernable. This swarm was relocated safely to a portable bee nesting box and released into the wild. .

Delighted to be presenting "The Stories We Are All Seeking" at the NJ Photo Expo at Unique Photo (@uniquephoto)'s Unique University in Fairfield, NJ. My first session is from 4-5.30pm on Saturday, June 9 and my second is from 10.30am-12pm on Sunday, June 10. Sign up and learn more by clicking on the link in my profile. I hope to see you there!

Here, Shorty the giraffe greets wildlife keeper Banki at Sarara Camp (@sararacamp) on the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in Northern Kenya. Shorty, or "Fupi" in Swahili, will go back to the wild once strong enough to survive on his own. He is a reticulated giraffe, which scientists have recently determined to be one of four distinct species of giraffe. Reticulated giraffe number about 8,000 individuals — as a separate species, it makes them some of the most endangered large mammals in the world as the population has dropped an estimated 70 percent in 15 years. The excellent wildlife keepers at Sarara and nearby Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) are working hard to rescue and rehabilitate abandoned and orphaned animals.

"Night hides the world, but reveals a universe." - Babak Tafreshi. It's always inspiring catching up with the wider @natgeo family.

Rodeos were originally used to show off skills gained from long hours working with horses and stock. One of the most important skills is roping. Being able to separate a cow or calf in order to doctor it, brand it or wean it was paramount in caring for a herd. Here team ropers work together to rope a calf. Learn more about our Ranch rodeo in tonight’s IGTV episode (our first!) with Wrangler and Rough Stock Rider @baileykinard. | 📷 @robertcolephotography |

Inviato is on IGTV! It’s finally time for me to start writing my reviews from all these incredible places we have visited this summer and I am having so much fun working on my first one of the summer, Ranch at Rock Creek in Montana (this picture taken after one of the best rides with Matt from RRC - these two equines are best buddies). It feels like eons ago since I was there but in reality it has only been 7 weeks! Today, I am launching Inviato’s IGTV channel with a few short videos from RRC to whet your appetite while I finish up my post! You can find it on our profile and our bio link - Enjoy 🐴🐴

A swarm of African honey bees rests for the evening. Each swarm can number in excess of 60,000 individuals. As the day begins to warm up, so do the bees and eventually they will move off to locate a new nesting site.

African honey bees (1)

Meet the African honey bee (Apis mellifera). Honey bees are one of nature’s “ecosystem engineers” and are critically important for the pollination of many plant species globally. With a lifespan of about eight weeks, a worker bee will fly the equivalent of 1,5 times around the earth in its search for food and water. Despite all this effort, a worker honey bee will only produce about a twelfth of a teaspoon of honey during its life span! The bee in the image has full pollen sacks and will be returning to the hive with its load.

Making history on the Hudson Bay coast, from Gillam to Seal River Heritage Lodge in the Oddney II.

In 1612 Sir Thomas Button became the first European to set foot on the banks of Canada's mighty Nelson River and named it so. In the 1930s Churchill Wild co-founder Jeanne Reimer's great, great grandfather travelled a route simiilar to that of Button and Canada's first explorers on the way to setting up trading posts on the Hudson Bay coast. And he did it in a boat named after Jeanne's great, great, great grandmother.

On July 16, 2018 Captain Jack Batstone and Churchill Wild co-founder Mike Reimer added to Manitoba's rich history, when they repeated the adventures above on the maiden voyage of the Oddney II. Story, photos and video now on the Churchill Wild Polar Bear Blog:

The honey badger (5)

Dust bathing is not actually a common behavior of the species.  However, it is very likely that it fulfills the same role in badgers as in other mammals where it is linked to external parasite control, olfactory communication with other individuals (through leaving scent where the dust bathing takes place), and a possible means of cooling down in hot weather.
