gaelingoexplore. This was one of my favorite moments from last week in Dominica and one

This was one of my favorite moments from last week in Dominica and one of the craziest and raddest things that has ever happened to me in the ocean...I literally had to dodge a flying fish that was flying right at me when we were waiting for a boat pickup after frolicking with some dolphins! I can’t believe I caught the moment. It was insanely awesome! . . . . . #magicmoment #flyingfish #dominica #goexplore #wildwednesday #wild #ocean #tropical #magical #rad #epic #wildlife #fish #oceanmagic #caribbean #upclose #closeup #underwater #gopro #stoked #wildlifephotography #uw #freediving

Big Teddy Bear. Like an advertisement for a toy shop this cute teenager looks like he wouldn’t hurt anyone. This is what I thought when I was there, this is what I think when I see this image and this is what we (people) love to do with nature. We can’t help it. Nature is only cute and cuddly in our minds however, nature has no such concept. Nature is primarily about survival and breeding. In some cases looking ‘good’ to a mate is important but for others like this boy looks don’t matter. His survival, his success is determined by how big and powerful he will be. How good a hunter he becomes in order to grow and his ability to dominate other mature breeding males is his primary goal. So I see cute in him... he sees potential food source in me. That’s nature yet we continue to project our interpretations on nature, that’s when things go wrong, we interfere - - - #polarbear #bear #churchill #arctic #globalwarming #stopglobalwarming #endangeredspecies #polarbears #threatenedspecies #bnwportrait   #bnw_portrait   #blackandwhitephoto   #blackandwhitephotography   #monochromephoto   #fineartphoto   #naturelovers   #wildlifephotography   #beautyinnature   #blackandwhitephoto   #monochromephotography   #monochromeart   #fineartphotography   #wildlifephoto   #animalportrait #churchillwildsafaris #teddybear #wildeyes #upclose #connection

It’s hard to hate up close.⁣ ⁣ A takeaway by @sophiabush that sent goosebumps down my spine on Monday nights @togetherliveevents event.⁣ ⁣ It’s absolutely certain.⁣ We all have loved. ⁣ We al have lossed.⁣ We are all struggling with something.⁣ We each have a story to tell.⁣ But we are each a beautiful sprinkle in this beautiful, yet sometimes painful journey.⁣ And⁣ Instead of glossing over the discomfort,⁣ Can we lean into the discomfort?⁣ Can we be present with ourselves and one another through the uncertain times / difficult conversations?⁣ Can we really listen?⁣ With an open heart.⁣ Assuming nothing.⁣ Practicing compassion.⁣ ⁣ “Listen deeply enough to be changed by what you hear,” was another nugget by @priyaparker I jotted down.⁣ ⁣ Yep, I was proud nerd in the audience taking note after note (swipe right to see).⁣ ⁣ Stay strong, stay open, stay accepting my friends. Our world needs this more than ever right now.⁣ ⁣ ♥️⁣ #sprinklecheer ♥️ Photo ✨: @ayhphoto Threads ✨: @vimmia_active

bradhannon. Debris flies through the air as we escape the path in the early stage

Debris flies through the air as we escape the path in the early stage of the Solomon to Chapman, Kansas tornado. The white mist in front of the tornado is a powerful inflow jet racing from left to right into the beast.

After my last few posts not hard to guess what this fairly abstract shot is of. I had so much respect for polar bears before I arrived. A true bucket list viewing and although it is clear they are dangerous I never saw that side of them. Ma ybe due to the superb guides or not observing them hunt or fight. What I did observe Was a very very curious animal, one (like so much of nature) that is incredibly patient. I saw an obvious intelligence and constant processing of the surroundings. This image I like for that reason... ‘what are you thinking?’ - - - #polarbear #bear #churchill #arctic #globalwarming #stopglobalwarming #endangeredspecies #polarbears #threatenedspecies #bnwportrait   #bnw_portrait   #blackandwhitephoto   #blackandwhitephotography   #monochromephoto   #fineartphoto   #naturelovers   #wildlifephotography   #beautyinnature   #blackandwhitephoto   #monochromephotography   #monochromeart   #fineartphotography   #wildlifephoto   #animalportrait #churchillwildsafaris #teddybear #wildeyes #upclose #connection

Was surprised to see this guy fluttering around yesterday. Only shot of him sitting still 😳. Late for him to be around no? (Males have the black spots on the bottom wings). Looks like the freezing nights are over - at least for now. ☀️ . . . . . #viverogrowers #goodmorning #atx #austintx #austin #monarch #butterfly #butterflies #chillymorning #happythursday #pollinator #gotomexico #sunshine #crazytexasweather #malemonarch #upclose #nature #funatwork

The butterfly counts not months, but moments - and has time enough. ~Rabindranath Tagore . White Peacock Butterfly captured with my zoom and not my macro this time! My two hiking lenses are my favorites in my collection and no matter the situation both lenses are amazing! . #butterfly #butterfliesofinstagram #macroworld_tr #inspirationalquotes
