Annulated coral snake (Micrurus annellatus) from Madre de Dios, Peru. I just read an article about a recent uptick in coral snake bites in Florida, really surprising considering how secretive and non confrontational snakes in this genus are. Until I kept reading the article and learned that ALL of the victims had picked the coral snakes up, with atleast a few cases of mistaken identity. A pro tip is to not pick up any snakes you cant identify with 100% certainty. In the states theres a rhyme that works for IDing coral snakes and their mimics. But in all reality if youre using a rhyme to determine whether to handle something that could potentially kill you, youre better off observing from a distance rather than taking any chances. In the tropics, the rhyme no longer works and coloration is not a reliable way to differentiate coral snakes from mimics. Instead behavior, head scalation, proportions like head and eye size, as well of knowledge of specific species should be used. . . . . . . . . #biodiversity #igscwildlife #DiscoverSouthAmerica #peru #nikon_photography #theweekoninstagram #Nikonnofilter #earthcapture #bbcearth #rainforestalliance #wildtropics #followthefrog #herpsofig #herpetology #macrointhewild #animalsofinstagram #Nikontop #LoViEnNatGeo #natgeoru #natgeowild #natgeolatam #micrurus #snakesofig #snakesofinstagram #wildlifephotography #thewildlifebiologist #nature_brilliance

Bears keep me humble. They help me to keep the world in perspective and to understand where I fit on the spectrum of life. We need to preserve the wilderness and its monarchs for ourselves, and for the dreams of children. We should fight for these things as if our life depended upon it, because it does. -Wayne Lynch . . . #blackbear #bears #sunsetocean #wildwestcoast #throwbackthursday #explorecanada #explorevancouverisland #vancouverislandguide #vancouverisland #vanisle #bcparks #pnwisbest #pnwcollective #pnwescapes #westcoastbestcoast #sharethecoast #nikond7200 #nikon #teamnikon #nikonanimals #wildlifephotography #thevisualcollective #earthpics #visualsofearth #naturephotography #picoftheday #earthcapture #animal_bestshots #wildlife_perfection

Every life matters 🐝💦 (tale of a wasp) Earlier in the year, Britain suffered one of its worst droughts in history. Temperatures into the high 30s and no rain for weeks on end, well, it just not very British, we are known for our moaning about the rain and washed out summer barbecues! This year was so hot and dry is had a devastating effect on nature and wildlife, some that went unnoticed, some very visible; rivers and waterways lacked oxygen and fish died, many waterbirds are underweight and their growth stunted by lack of food, botulism spread in the low water levels and dehydration and overheating was a big problem, especially for small birds and young creatures. I noticed this little visitor one day, clearly thirsty. We had put 3 water baths in the garden so I thought it odd that this wasp chose to come inside (all the windows were open). He flew away when I got close, so I put some water out in a dish on the windowsill. But next time I went into the kitchen, the water was untouched and there he was on the tap again. Several days of hot weather went by and he got more comfortable with my presence during his visits, so I could get close enough to film him. He never went to the water softened tap or drank from the water dishes, only from the hard water filtered tap - very choosy! By the time the heatwave broke he had got so confident he was drinking from the tap whilst I was washing up!! I was quite sad when it rained and he stopped coming. Many creatures need our help sometimes, not all of them are cute and furry or even nice to us, but we can all show them a bit of kindness, every life matters, even wasps. . . . . #wasps #heatwave #everylifematters #springwatch #instawild #wildlondon #londonwildlifetrust #lovewasps #lovebees #savebees #ig_macro #macrophotography #beesofinstagram #pollinators #insects_macro #insectsofig #insectworld #kings_insects #givenatureahome #waspsofinstagram #insects_of_our_world #earthcapture #insectguru #pocket_insects #rspb_love_nature
