My image of these two curious White terns appears as a 2 page spread in the #LindbladExpeditions South Pacific brochure, alongside a nice quote from my friend @gahooley, talking about what makes the birds of Polynesia so unique. This photo was taken on Ducie island, an extremely remote island, where encounters with humans are a rarity.

Did you know that Red-eyed tree frog embryos can actually hatch early to escape an approaching predator such as a snake? How cool! Come join @stevemorello and myself for our #CostaRica photo workshop and explore the incredibly biodiverse world of the Osa Peninsula on a macro level as well! For the month of November, we’re offering $300 off our 2019 #photoworkshops in either April or November. For more info, please visit the link in the bio or send me a message. #OsaPeninsula #redeyedtreefrog #learnphotography #wildlifephotography #macrophotography #macrophotos

A camera set to tungsten WB, a #deer grazing under a tree, and yesterday’s cold foggy morning led to this image. I liked the extra blue caused by the tungsten WB, so I left it alone. #loveva @visitvirginia #silhouettes #silhouette

Hands down the largest white-tailed buck I’ve ever seen. Glad to see this old guy is still roaming around.

Thrilled to hear that Florida has voted to end #greyhound racing by 2020! Meet Sasha, she’s our super goofy greyhound that we rescued nearly 10 years ago. Now an old lady, it’s hard to believe she’s almost 13! If you’re looking for a new dog, please consider giving a forever home to these friendly companions. To learn more about the adoption process, please visit virginiagreyhounds.org. #adoptagreyhound #greyhoundrescue #rescuedog #endgreyhoundracing #greyhoundsofinstagram #greyhounds #rescuedogs

A walkway at the beautiful Florence Court Gardens in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland. I used two different lenses for the same scene. The first image was created using my favorite lens, the 70-200mm f/2.8. I love the way it compresses a scene! The second image was created using an ultra-wide 16-35. Have a preference? Let me know in the comments! To view thousands more images from the enchanting island of #Ireland, please visit my website (link in bio). @tourismireland #northernireland #ireland #gardensofireland

People often ask me “Where’s your favorite travel destination?” For a long time, I struggled with that answer, the world is chalk full of amazing places. How do you pin it down to just one location? My easy answer was always, “Wherever I’m going next!” But if you really had to pin me to a specific destination, I’d probably have to say #Antarctica. The light, the landscapes and the wildlife are utterly out of this world! How about you folks, what are some of your favorite travel destinations? Photo taken around midnight while cruising in Antarctic Sound on an @natgeoexpeditions & @lindbladexp assignment. // #natgeotravel #natgeo #lindbladexpeditions #tiffenfilters #polarregion #climatechange
