Everyone loves Anemone Fish, they are colourful and full of spunk! They are also a great species to teach people about symbiotic relationships and reef health. Check it out on this weeks episode of Snap Happy-The Photography Show on Sunday at 11.30 on Channel 10 HD One. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @snaphappytv @natgeoau @natgeotravel #instafish #greatbarrierreef @australia #seeaustralia #anemone #clownfish #underwaterphotography #wildlifephotography #macrophotography @seacam_official #scuba @natgeo @natgeofineart @ten_insider

There are so many interesting faces in the world; the young and old, those weathered by time and the elements, or just everyday humans whose physical characteristics make them appealing through the lens. It can feel like a cliche to shoot religious figures in the Himalaya but I always grab a couple of frames. I don’t get fixated on them because there are so many great opportunities, but it’s nigh impossible to walk past everyone!

Weathered by sea and sky the ancient Moai statues of Rapa Nui watch over the most remote island on Earth. Clear blue skies can be wonderful but a rain front passing through a scene is far more interesting.

If you cannot read Spanish or just choose to ignore the sign, then a Llama will be there to make sure you stay on the right path. Always listen to your internal Llama, get it?!... And be sure to tune in to Snap Happy-The Photography Show on Sunday at 11.30 on Channel 10 HD One for Season 3! This week I’ll visit Macchu Picchu and other locations. @snaphappytv @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers #macchupicchu #peru #culture #photographylovers #photographylife #llama @ten_insider

A Black-skinned Parrot Snake draping it’s long, elongated body over a thin branch above an oxbow lake near the Bolivian border.

The savannah was bone dry, stubble grass and dust eddies; and then the rains arrived. Overnight there was a sheen of green on the ground and then the herds arrived as if they’d erupted from the earth itself, and with them the cats! @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @natgeoau @natgeochannel @natgeo @natgeotravel #safari #africa #bigcat #lion #instacat #instacats #catlover #wildlifephotography #documentaryphotography #decisivemoment #predator #hunting @bbc_travel @earthfocus @earthpix @instagram #instagram #pictureperfect #instapic

Australia is the sand continent. I love the deep desert but the coastal fringes where our famous red ochre flows into turquoise seas is another realm altogether. The wind sculpts patterns in the dune faces as far as the eye can see. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @natgeoau @natgeochannel #landscapephotography #sanddunes @australia #seeaustralia #australiagram #naturephotography @natgeotravel

So these are the contents of my fridge when I opened the door this morning. Firstly, I need to shop and secondly the Nikon D5 doesn’t need to be kept cold after opening. Grabbed a cider when I got home last night and must have put the camera in there at the same time. It’s official I’m losing it... @natgeocreative @natgeoau #brainfreeze @natgeotravel #d5 #nikond5 @nikonaustralia @nikonusa #nikonphotography #nikon @natgeoexpeditions @snaphappytv @australia #seeaustralia #brainfood #goshopping #fridge @natgeo @natgeochannel

A Toco Toucan poking out it’s long, narrow tongue. These large birds will eat fruit from the trees but also insects and other small animals. The toucan’s bill is the largest relative to body size of all birds, but is light as it is predominantly hollow. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @natgeoau @natgeochannel #toucan #brasil #instabird #birdphotography #birdlovers #wildlifephotography #animalface @natgeo @conservationorg #southamerica #birdsofinstagram

Now straight away I know a lot of people will not like this image simply because it’s leeches. Yep, I can hear the groans now... So if nothing else enjoy the colours! But leech are common traveling companions in my game and I’ve fed them all over the planet. They don’t hurt and are incredible animals able to search for prey and survive off a single feed for many months. They are also used in modern medicine and traditional treatments alike. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @natgeoau #leech #medicine #macrophotography #traditionalmedicine #alien #yuck #insectphotography

Summer is on the way! You can feel the change in the air with warm Spring days becoming regular and the gardens shrouded in new growth. And close to my heart the ocean temperature is rising again which means less neoprene! #tgif @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @natgeoau #islandlife #paradise #tropicalparadise #livelife #timeout #oceanlove #getoutthere

My favorite carnivore, the African Wild Dog. They can look scruffy and they definitely have a unique odour, but they are incredibly intelligent and have the most advanced hunting strategy of any mammal. Sadly they are critically endangered throughout most of their range due to hunting, disease and habitat loss. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @natgeoau @natgeo @conservationorg @greatplainsconservation #africa #safari #wilddog #instadog #instadogs #doglover #endangered #dogworld #conservation #wildlifephotography #documentaryphotography

The iridescent neon blue spots and golden eye of a Blue-spotted Ribbontail Ray. Whether you’re snorkeling or diving it’s always great to look in reef caves or under overhangs where species shelter or rest. But be sure not to flush them out just for a photo because they are in there for a reason! @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @natgeoau #underwaterphotography #scuba #macrophotography #eye #alien #wildlifephotography #closeup #documentaryphotography #naturephotography #zanzibar

Tigers are struggling in the wild but in Melbourne this weekend the Richmond Tigers consumed the Crows in the football Grand Final. They are not my team but I was very happy to see them break a 37-year drought. Well done to the team and congratulations to the fans! @natgeocreative @natgeoau #tiger #india #instacat #bigcat #endangered #endangeredspecies #afl #grandfinal #richmond @afl #catlover #tigers #football

A diminutive Klum's Xenica butterfly roosting on a Hooker's Fescue grass stem in a lowland swamp forest. I love sitting in grasslands there is so much happening on a small scale, you just have to spend the time to let everything adjust to your presence.

School holidays are great, you grab a mountain of cash and set a match to it whilst clapping maniacally. Marketers start showing terrifying cinema clips like the remake of IT by Stephen King during kids prime time and you find yourself startled awake at 1am with a terrified child looking down on you, queue Children of the Corn. Then the Royal Melbourne Show comes to town and you say screw it, who needs to pay this months rent anyway! You wander through the army of carnies (carnival folk) shelling out money to keep them at bay, because in case you didn't know cash is the only thing that minimises their disdain for you; it doesn't remove it but just reduces it, a little. Then your child sees that terrifying clown mask and forgets completely what happened the night before. No guidance can sway them and hell it's school holidays! They express their joy at scaring other kids counting their number out loud. But then as the sun goes down they realise they're also a victim and so in the dead of night I find myself flat broke with a child sharing a pillow. Good times! Shot on iPhone 7 and converted to share the horror. #it #iphone7 #schoolholidays #clown #demon #melbourne @australia #seeaustralia #australiagram #scary #horrormovie #halloween

Quiet days in Bathurst Harbour, #Tasmania. I had the great pleasure of photographing the windswept, rugged landscape and it's endangered parrots, in beautiful isolation.

The fire season in northern Australia is a crucial annual event that has shaped the landscape for thousands of years. Fires begin naturally from lightning strikes, and have also been started deliberately by countless generations of indigenous Australians to manage the habitat. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers @natgeoau @conservationorg @australia #seeaustralia #fire #firefighter #outback #australiagram @natgeo #landscapephotography #documentaryphotography

In the Australian outback the distances are vast and sightings can be hard to find especially birds of prey. When you do come across interesting species like this Brhamany Kite you are really hoping for great light, this was one of those days. @natgeocreative @ilcp_photographers #instabird #birdphotography #wildlifephotography #birdofprey @natgeoau #seeaustralia @australia

Wedding season in Nepal sees the streets of Kathmandu filled with beautiful brides and glowing grooms.

It's always a joy seeing leopard in the wild. Captive animals are not wild animals no matter what zoos tell you.
