Grass Snake, Natrix helvetica This warm weather is lovely at the moment but also very worrying... It’s got me thinking of reptiles though and in particular Grass Snakes. This Grass Snake is one of the largest I’ve seen locally and since then I haven’t seen another which is a shame. This year however I do hope I get to find some and hopefully photograph them! Taken with the 105mm macro, it is probably the sharpest image I have taken!!

Close up of a dirty bird... This is a very intense looking juvenile king vulture in Costa Rica. He's dirty from poking his head around inside a rotting carcass laying in the mud. Pleasant, huh? Other vultures, the smaller turkey vulture, for example, are known to have very keen senses of smell. It was long thought that king vultures could not smell and found food only by sight, and would follow the lead of their smaller cousins, but this is not certain. Although they seem to rely primarily on sight, it appears they are able to smell food, just perhaps not as well as other vulture species.⠀ ⠀ I was able to get shots this close using a blind. It was hot - really hot - but well worth it to get such a great look at these striking birds without disturbing them.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #wildlifephotographs #photowildlife #live_love_wildlife #wildlife_shots #featured_wildlife #majestic_wildlife_ #animals_captures #wildlifephoto #birdsonearth #birdphotos #birdsandblooms #birdphoto #nikon_photo #nikoncamera #nikonusa #yourshotphotographer #natgeopix #wildlifephoto #tamroncreates #tamron150600 #tamronlens #costaricawildlife

Cob (male swan) and pen (female swan) taking turns to incubate eggs in the nest ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Swans are monogamous and usually attempt to mate for life. The male and female birds, the cob and pen, build their nest by making a large mound of reeds, rushes, grasses and sticks, at the water's edge. The nest is built by the pen, while the cob supplies the materials and protects the territory. Unlike most other waterfowl, the male will also take turns helping to incubate the eggs. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #swans #muteswans #incubating #incubatingeggs #sittingoneggs #birdeggs #birdseggs #nest #nests #nesting #birdnest #birdsnest #nestingbirds #bird #birds #wildbirds #wildbirdsofinstagram #birdphoto #birdphotos #birdphotography #birdshots #instabirds #instaswan #swansoninstagram #nature_worldwide_birds #naturecapture #instanature #natureisperfect #perfectnature #feather_perfection
