Today is the world Chimpanzees day ! I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity last week to meet our closest cousins in Uganda. It is always a life changing to look into the eyes of the great apes. Only curiosity, love and simplicity are shared in between us during this short contact. A look into our human roots and a hope for our commun futur to live with all the animals of the planet in harmony 🙏. #greatapes #chimpanzees #chimp #rememberinggreatapes #uganda #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephotographer #primate #singes #naturevibes #wildlifeart #canonfrance

The #Sing_Sing is a traditionnal ritual where the Papuan tribes sing and dance to honor and represant their cultures. It is an impressive show to assist, they put al their energy into this dynamics dance and powerfull songs, you can feel the earth shiver under your feet. One of my strongest experience I got the chance to live !

Papuan tribes are the most diverse and colorful on earth. This far and remote land is pleased with a wonderful and untouched nature and a huge diversity of cultures, like this woman coming from the Simbu province. She proudly boast her local headdress composed by papuan birds feathers found in the forest.

On my way to go back to Sumatra and keep documenting the work of SOCP an NGO fighting for the Orangutan Conservation. That was for me a life changing to meet our cousin : the man of the forest. I feel so sad for what we are doing to them, with our modern way of life and our increasing palm oil consumation we are destroying their habitat. Just to let you know it remain only 12 000 sumatran orangutan into the wild... #orangutan #socp #yel #ragingextinction #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotographer #naturelife #primate #sumatra #wildlifestory #eyestoeyes #palmoil #canonfrance #wwf #rememberinggreatapes

Here I am, on the road again 😊. On my way to Costa Rica for a 12 days photo workshop to take some amazing pictures like this White-necked Jacobin. #Hummingbirds have always a place of choice in my workshop as is a wonderful subject to take picture of. For that reason we will go in the right places in the best conditions i hope. I cross my finger to get some more amazing shot there to share with you.

Marine Iguana is a unique creature from the #Galapagos Island. This species allow us to understand in a better and faster way the evolution of the animals. At first it was a random Iguana who land on this remote and aride island. There was no much food on land for them, so they bigin to go into the sea to eat the alguae. With the time they survived and specialized on this marine food. They body change, they became better swimmer, and they learn how to exult the salt. In some hundred thousand year a new specie was born. The Galapagos Marine Iguana.

Last picture of #tiger for this week. With 45° during the day, this female is resting near by a water hole into the vegetation.. She is waiting the night to get back on hunt.

Indian tiger. What a big emotion to see this wonderful big cat into the wild. In #bandhavgarh national park they are well protected and it is quiet easy to see them even if there is a lot of tourist around... When I was there the temperature was 45°, it was a bit warm 😎🙃... #tiger #bigcats #wildlifelovers #wildlifestory #wwfrance #wildlifephotographer #nature_cuties #olympusomd #earthcapture #naturephotography #objectifnature

Kill-billed toucan are one of the most beautiful birds of central America. One of my favorite subject, they are so photogenic ! During my first trip to Costa Rica I have been studying them for two month with a phd student. I did learn so much about them. Did you know for example that they sleep at the very end of a branch, at the limit of rupture of it as if a predator walk on this branch it break and the toucan fly away... #birdaddicts #rainforest #toucan #bird_lovers #nuts_about_birds #costarica #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephotographer #naturelovers #canonphoto #wildlifestory #birds_adored #earthcapture

Crossing the rio Celeste on this small bridge is a wonderful experience. In the forest of Tenorio National Park in #CostaRica the water of the river have a unique color : it is blue turquoise ! Higher in the mountain the union of two litle streams caused a chemical reaction who brought this amazing color. Here you will experiment a mystical ambiance in the middle of this healty rainforest.

Red-eyed tree frog is on of the jewel of Costa Rica. This quiet big frog live in the trees hunting at night for some insects. It is on of the symbol of the amazing biodiversity of this wonderful country. They have a particular sound who help to find them at night in order to take picture of them.
