The first species i managed to photograph was this Nonnative Eurasian Collared dove. It was apparently first released in the Bahamas in 1974 and subsequently invaded Florida. In 1987, there were 1,200 pairs in Dade and Monroe counties. By 1993, they had reached Alachua County. It now occurs throughout most of the coastal regions of the state and inland in southern Florida. Back from my trip and hope you've all been well. Have a good weekend dear friends.

This is an Oriental Pied Hornbill in Thailand. Whats species of hornbill have you seen and from which country?
.
.
Not all bills are made the same
The bills of smaller species are made of softer tissue, while the larger species boasts bills made of ivory-like bone. In some cultures, the bone bills are made into highly prized ritual items.

I walked past this monitor lizard and almost didn't notice it due to its camouglage adaptation. Camouglage helps an animal to survive in its environment. Animals utilize camouflage to avoid detection by both predator and prey species. .
What's the best camouflage that you've seen with an animal?

Hornbills possess binocular vision, although unlike most birds with this type of vision, the bill intrudes on their visual field. This allows them to see their own bill tip and aids in precision handling of food objects with their bill. The eyes are also protected by large eyelashes which act as a sunshade.

Throughout my whole time in Thailand, i loved the sound of nature you can hear at night time. Coming especially from these guys. It was like listening to a symphony as I drank a cup of tea in the treehouse.

What animal sound do you like to listen to?

I spot this 1 metre long Monitor lizard frantically digging at the bottom of a coconut tree while I walked along the beach.. only to realise he was actually hunting and ate another smaller lizard once I downloaded my pictures (look in its mouth). #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #instanature #naturelover #natureza #nature_perfection  #natureaddict #naturegram #vsconature  #rsa_nature #natureporn  #nature_shooters #lovenature #naturehippys #bestnatureshot  #natureshots #naturelove  #instanaturelover #nature_sultans  #naturephoto #natureonly #nature_seekers #allnatureshots #naturewalk#beautifulnature #naturel  #tagsta_nature #naturesbeauty #instanaturefriends

Happy weekend everyone.

Thai water buffalo are wide backed and have large, protruding bellies. They have a large boned frame with long legs and a fairly long neck. The head is small in comparison to the body. Horns protrude from the head that curve out and upward. Adult water buffalo range in size from 300-600 kilograms.

Buffaloes have always played an integral part in Thai culture and Thai society.
Buffaloes have been used since centuries by peasants in order to plough their rice fields.There is concern over sharp fall in their numbers. Thailand's buffalo population has dropped 26% from 1998 to 2008. Buffaloes are disappearing from some village.

Have you seen water buffaloes before?
