An Eastern Grey Kangaroo at Murramarang NP, NSW, Australia. Here, kangaroos are a popular tourist attraction, but in many areas of the Country kangaroos are culled for their meat. Photographed on assignment for @natgeo.

A male Sulawesi crested black macaque (Macaca nigra) photographed in Tangkoko: this tiny Nature Reserve protects the last forest with a viable population of this endemic and rare macaques. Crested black macaques are hunted for meat, kept as pets and threatened by a shrinking habitat. Unpublished photograph from my @natgeo magazine story ‘A Fight to Survive’ (March issue)

This odd-looking sub-adult male Sulawesi crested black macaque, named “Troublemaker”, is the opener image for my upcoming @natgeo Magazine story ‘A Fight to Survive’ (March issue). This is probably also one of my most famous photograph.

A silhouette of a Lesser kestrel. This month, my new story 'The urban falcon' is featured by BBC Wildlife Magazine and in a 18-pages article by National Geographic Italy. A link to a new photo gallery in the bio. @stefanounterthiner. @natgeo #silhouette #Matera #bird #Magazine #article

In cold weather, a normally reddish brown ermine changes into its white winter coat: a perfect camouflage adaptation for this small and fast predator. Unpublished photograph from my @natgeo magazine story ‘Paradise Found’. To order a fine print, please use the link in bio. Thanks! @stefanounterthiner. #white #winter #snow #cold #perfect
