A snow leopard sleeping peacefully at the St. Louis Zoo. Snow leopards are found in the wild in 12 countries including China, Nepal, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, and Mongolia. They prefer cold climates high in the mountains and hunt sheep, ibex, pikas, and hares. In 2017 their status has changed from endangered to vulnerable which is positive news for this beautiful cat. #saintlouiszoo #predators #bigcats #snowleopard #conservation #protect #wildlifeconservation #naturelovers #carnivores #cats #explore #endangered #vulnerable #beautiful #graceful #amazingcreatures

I found this hornets nest this fall while driving on a rock road. It was hanging directly over the road from a tree branch. It was in perfect condition. It's amazing how such simple creatures can be such efficient architects. #nature #getoutside #explore #hornetsnest #naturesarchitecture #hiking #sundaydrive #inthecountry #staywild #natureisawesome #autumn #midwest

A bald eagle fishing in a creek here in Missouri. Bald Eagles have made an outstanding comeback since the 1960s when only 487 nesting pairs remained. By the 1990s, their population had recovered enough that they could be taken off of the endangered species list, and today there are over 5000 nesting pairs in the US. #eagles #baldeagle #birdofprey #nature #wildlife #missouri #explore #hikingadventures #getoutside #endangeredspecies #recovery #conservation #successstory #raptors #creekside #midwest #nationalsymbol

The beauty of a mountain stream....middle of the wilderness and not a single person around. Just the running water, mountains, trees, and wildlife with no interruptions. This is paradise. #mountains #mountainculture #mountainwomen #colorado #highaltitude #sanjuanmountains #hiking #explore #wilderness #wildernessculture #clearwaters #bigskycountry #inthewild #serenity #paradise #natureisamazing
