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.

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.

Basiliscus basilicus are also called "Jesus christ lezard" for its ability to run on the surface of water. They are very commun in #CostaRica but not so easy to take picture of as they are shy and so speed !

The Andean Condor is a #vulture. They only eat dead animals. For that reason they are very important for the ecosystems.They keep the environment clean and help prevent the spread of disease. Vultures are equipped with a digestive system that contains special acids that will dissolve anthrax, botulism, and cholera bacteria.
Unfortunetely most of the vultures in the world are in danger of extinction... #vultureconservation #racingextinction #condor #bird #birdaddicts #wildlifestory #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephotographer #birdphotography #canonfrance #thephotosociety #jocotoco #naturephotography

Despite of his outstanding anatomic features like his 3,5 m wingspan the Andeans Condor are in danger of extinction. In ecuador it remain only 100 individues into the wild. Fortunately some NGO and local communities put their efforts together in order to save this bird of legend.
