Elephant mothers are probably the most nurturing in all the animal kingdom.  They help their babies walk, pick them up when they fall, fetch them when they stray, and bathe, nurture and caress them.

The Painted Desert Inn ! 
The Inn is built in Pueblo Revival Style in the early 20th century. This historic landmark is now converted into a museum with exhibits about its history and architecture.

Endless Dawn

First light skips across the countless ridges throughout the Maze in Canyonlands National Park. After a beautiful sunset the evening before, all of the cloud cover dissipated and I knew I’d have to focus on smaller scenes at sunrise. This image was shot at 300mm in an effort to compress the layers and bring the distant ridges to the forefront.

Manatee swimming right up next to me along on the beach in St. Augustine in waist deep water. I thought I was going to have to wait until winter at the springs to try to see manatee and was incredibly surprised to see that they occasionally swim right along the shore line. Thanks for the manatee magic. The only things greater than seeing this were seeing my nieces and nephews getting to swim with them. This photo shows two of the 4. .

Here is the Tawny Coster butterfly.
It is a small, 53–64 millimetres, leathery-winged butterfly common in grassland and scrub habitats.
Its scientific name: Acraea terpsicore.

It has a tough exoskeleton which enables the adult to survive a few pecks of a bird or even the bites of a lizard. Once left alone the adult immediately takes off and resumes its uncaring flight.

When a Tiger filled the frame!⁣ (single click link to this blog post embedded in profile bio)

#mammal_thursday @lenstrails ⁣
⁣
I must admit being more of a birder than a big cat person. But when you are on a nature and wildlife tour of Rajasthan, no sane enthusiast would miss Ranthambore - one of the biggest and most renowned national parks in Northern India.⁣
⁣
The experience of Ranthambore was a bittersweet one - logistically chaotic till Rajasthani hospitality came to the rescue. This calls for a detailed blog, which will follow.⁣
⁣
Since experiencing the jungle was of higher priority to me, I didn’t bother which safari bus I was boarding or which zone I would be visiting. I couldn’t care lesser, honestly.⁣
⁣
After 20 mins on safari track, amidst all the chaos, senseless shouting and safari vehicles movement, suddenly a gorgeous subadult tigress ID’d as ‘T 102’ showed up and I couldn’t believe my eyes.⁣
⁣
This is the final image I could create. Zoom in on her eyes and you will know what I mean.⁣
⁣
PS: I would have loved a lot more room around the subject but that didn’t happen. A short story on this entire experience is published in this link. Please do pay a visit and read on: http://www.lenstrails.com/when-a-tiger-filled-the-frame/ (single click link embedded in profile bio)

Pearl Kite.

Pequeño pero matón, un lema que se merece este ejemplar por su agilidad y precisión a la hora de cazar sus presas, en este caso me regaló de su tiempo para fotografiarlo.

I have my good buddy @1000ninjas to thank for this amazing picture. While traveling across the Serengeti, we threw an axle in our #LandRover. As nightfall approached, so did these tall, slender, gentlemen known as the #Masai. I watched them seemingly float across the horizon towards us, and I quickly asked @1000ninjas to oblige me with a photo and he did. I’m not sure what was said, but we all shared a laugh, and a smile...and that my friends, like love, is the universal language. They helped us get help for our #LandRover, and we were on our way. This is one of my greatest memories of all time.

As I planned my camera to follow this cheeky Chestnut Teal, it tricked me into photographing its silhouette against the harsh setting sun, but I think it makes for an interesting composition nonetheless.

Agouti timidly resting in a bed of moss, these guys forage in the Amazon rainforest and bury fruits and seeds which end up growing into trees.
