Banded civets are one of the 8 species of cover found throughout Borneo. This species is terrestrial, feeding on ants, worms, crabs, etc. They have hairs between foot pads to sense movement of prey on the forest floor. This is a younger individual that I found in Danum Valley.

One of my favourite images that I have of the western tarsier. Out of all the species of tarsiers, this one is the only one that has lives a solitary life. The only fully carnivorous primate on the planet, these fellas are badass. *

Black-crested macaques are such a fun primate to photograph. Even though they are habituated and comfortable with people, the dark color can be difficult. I have found that the key is being patient until they move into a location that works for pictures and then it pays off big time. @jackbknoll I fuckin love macaques on the beach! ⠀

Tule elk were almost extinct in Pt Reyes in the late 1800s, and in the late 1900s a few individuals were released in the area. From those 10 individuals, the population has grown to over 500 today, which is incredible! Point Reyes National Seashore remains one of my favourite places to visit in the states. ⠀

Walking through the forests of Tangkoko and having all of the woodland kingfishers hunting under the canopy is quite a spectacle. The green-backed kingfisher spends the majority of its time close to the ground hunting worms, insects, lizards, etc. I do not get tired of photographing them!⠀

Wilson’s bird of paradise is a stunning endemic species to the islands of Raja Ampat. Watching the male display to the female is always an amazing thing to see, and it is always a highlight for me when I am in the area. ⠀

Orangutans are incredibly intelligent, and mothers are very protective over their young. Protecting the remaining forests of Borneo means saving orangutans from extinction. Action is needed now to stop the rapid decline of population on the island of this species.⠀

This is by far the best sighting I have had of a Sulawesi hawk eagle. We found this juvenile hunting under the canopy. By the blood spattered across his feathers, it seems like he has had a successful hunt before we got there also. The endemism of this island is astonishing.⠀
