Few years ago, I was volunteer on a monitoring project of the hawksbill turtle in Seychelles. I spent my days, walking on the beach and waiting for the turtles coming out of the sea to lay their eggs into the sand. That was an amazing experiences to follow their process in thoose paradise beaches. Unfortunetely it 's getting harder and harder for the turtle to lay down their eggs on the beaches as they are more and more frequented by humans. We need to keep some wild space untouched, protect some land, to allow the wildlife to complete their cycle of life, also it begin so difficult for them to survive...

Baird's tapir (Tapirus bairdii) is the biggest mammals of the rainforest. Even if it is big, it is a very discret animal, almost like a ghost. You can see often his big tree fingers foot print but it is pretty rare to spot it. During the day they like to rest into a mud hole with water, it refresh them and the mud will protect their skins from the insects. In Costa Rica at Corcovado National Park, Tapirs are often seen around the main station, so I decided to get there in my last expedition with the expection of taking a picture of a Tapir. What do you think about this one ?

As you know hummingbirds is one of my favorite subjects, so I keep up posting some new pictures of them, If you don't mind ? The male Jocobin is an easy one to get, everytime hanging around the lodges looking for some nice flower. No way to take the picture following him, just wait on a nice flower, get your time to make a nice composition, pre focus, and wait him. When is coming you just need to press the button and it is done ! .

Let's go back into the forest with this macaw's picture. We are here in #Peru, at the "Colpa chuncho" in the Tambopata National Park. Everyday hundreds of macaw's come here to eat some clay. It is essential to there diet, it help them digesting the seed and also bring them so minerals they need. The Colpa is also a meeting point for the young macaw's looking for their Soul mate. It is a wonderful spectacle to see, an explosion of noise and colors with this beautiful bird.

The Magellanic penguin (Spheniscus magellanicus) is a South American penguin, breeding in coastal Argentina, Chile and the Falkland Islands. I spot this one while I was walking in the peninsula Valdez in Argentina. One of the largest colonie is located at Punta Tombo, a bit southest from the peninsula. Thousand of penguins come here to breed every year from September to April. Unfortunetely scientist have noticed that 43% of the population have declined since 1987, due certainly of a lack of fishs...

I have seen so much wonderful animals in my life but seing the whales jumping stay one my best moment in life. It was in the Valdez peninsula in Argentina, 8 years ago already. I did whales watching with some North Atlantic Right Whale. It was in the Golfo San juan, where there come in big groups to reproduce themself from June to december. I remember like it was yesterday, I felt so small on there side... I remember to have wrote this : " Their immense silhouette is equaled only by the great kindness that emanates from it " .

Here is a picture extract from my new article. The little guy on the head of the marine iguana is not a baby, it is an other specie : the lava lizard. They likes to climb on their big brothers to catch some very tasty flies. The marine iguana is not disturbed at all. It is some thing I really like to see in the wild, when two species cohabit together, I found that it is a good exemple of tolerence and respect for us. If we could do the same with all the species we share our space with, it will be a big step for our beautiful planet. I hope you will enjoy it.

The next day we spoted again the Leopard with a full belly. Night have been very sucessful for him and for us to. During this photo workshop in the National park of South Luangwa in Zambia, we get pleased to see Leopards almost everyday. It is not for nothing that this place is named the Leopards valley.
End of my Leopard story

(This story follow the last post)
So we turn off the light and wait... and, in the total darkness, we heard the hunt ! That was so fast ! At this point we decided to turn on the light. Just few meters in front us, we get this amazing scene, our eyes made a few second do reallised how lucky we were. The Leopards caught an Impala just in front of us ! The prey is still breezing, we hear it, and the predator keep his strong jowl around her neck... Nobody talk, we are just comtemplating this incredible scene, a bit sad for the Impala, but also happy for the Leopards, this is nature... The hunt is a success for this Leopard, and we get our adrenalin rush too. So We let it disappear into the bush dragging his prey, and climb to a tree to quietly eat his well diserved meal... That is a true story, a story writting by Mother Earth...

Like you know, I am very passionated about Hummingbirds, there are so cute šŸ˜. Today there is almost 330 species living ONLY on the American continent. But did you know that the oldest fossil of hummingbird have been founded in Europe ? That is true. In 2007 some scientists found an hummingbird skeleton fossilised in the south of France, it age : 30 millions years !!! That also mean that 30 millions years ago we had a tropical weather in France. We still have so much to learn and discover about nature...

Do you know The king vulture (Sarcoramphus papa) ? We also call it Zopilote Rey in South America. I think is one of the most beautiful vulture in the world, if a vulture can be beautiful... King Vulture is a neotropical bird, he is found in Central and South America, from Mexico to northern Argentina. Like other vultures, the king vulture is a scavenger. Its large size and powerful bill allow it to dominate at a carcass, ripping into areas that the smaller vultures cannot reach. .
