The peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus), also known as the peregrine,[2] and historically as the duck hawk in North America,[3] is a widespread bird of prey (raptor) in the family Falconidae. A large, crow-sized falcon, it has a blue-grey back, barred white underparts, and a black head. The Peregrine is renowned for its speed, reaching over 320 km/h (200 mph) during its characteristic hunting stoop (high-speed dive),[4] making it the fastest bird in the world and the fastest member of the animal kingdom.[5][6][7] According to a National Geographic TV program, the highest measured speed of a peregrine falcon is 389 km/h (242 mph).[8][9] As is typical of bird-eating raptors, peregrine falcons are sexually dimorphic, with females being considerably larger than males.[10][11] According to one study, it has the fastest visual processing speed of any animal tested so far, and can register discrete changes up to 129 Hz or cycles per second.[12] As an analogy, film is a series of still images projected onto a screen. Those still images need to be changing at roughly 25 frames per second before humans see them as fluid and no longer as individual, discrete pictures. The film would have to be refreshing at 129 frames per second before peregrine falcons stopped seeing flashing, still images and started seeing fluid motion. @bbcwildlifemagazine @bbcearth @discovery @natgeoindia @sonybbcearth . . #instanature #bbcwildlifemagazine #natgeo #planetearth #discoverearth #bbcwildlife #birdsofindia #naturephotography #birdphotos #CapturedOnCanon #wildlifephotography #anktsukla #discovery #birdphotographersofindia #earthonlocation #planetbirds #birdsofinstagram #wildlifephotography #photooftheday #picoftheday #birds #natgeoindia #discovery #onestrangeasia #TheRealWildContest #ngtindia #nature #potd #earthinfocus #earthcapture #bbcwildlifepotd #birdsofindiansubcontinent

Mamba & Me - - On a break from diving and exploring the beautiful wild coast we paid a visit to @riverbendcrocfarm in Southbroom, South Africa. - - Before our visit to the croc enclosures we stopped by to see their stunning collection of snakes. They were kept behind glass in immaculate enclosures and it’s only the second time I’ve been lucky enough to see a Black Mamba. - - The reflection in the glass almost made me feel part of the environment which makes me smile because not many people would ever want to be this close, without the glass anyway! @simonkeys2020 is one of the few and by a strange twist of fate we ended up on the last flight back from South Africa hours before they shut the borders. This guy and his wife are unreal and if you like snakes make sure you checkout his show. - - The Black Mamba is widely considered as the worlds deadliest snake. Untreated, a single bite would result in death within 20 minutes courtesy of powerful venom. It is also Africa’s largest venomous snake growing up to 14 feet. - - The Black Mamba gets its name not from the black/grey colour of its scales but the colouring inside its mouth. Such a majestic creature that demands the utmost respect. - - #blackmamba #africansnakes #snakesofinstagram #snakephotography #conservation #snakes #snakelovers #wildlife #southafricanwildlife #wildcoast #slither #nikonphotography #nikond850 #nikonlens #liveloveexplore #travel #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeo #discoverywildlife #riverbendcrocfarm

Desafiada pelo meu amigo @gabriel_thomaz . Dia #3: Parque Nacional do Itatiaia, RJ . Milhões de pessoas estão em quarentena em suas casas na guerra contra o COVID-19, lutando também para manter a saúde mental. A arte pode ajudar a aliviar o estresse, trazer alegria e esperança. Por isso, convido meus amigos fotógrafos a distribuírem esperança por meio de suas artes. Postem 5 fotos em 5 dias que representem os lugares onde vocês querem voltar após a quarentena. Marque a #QuandoIssoPassar e mais 5 amigos fotógrafos e continue o movimento. Desafio minhas lindas @nicolefalavigna e @silviahusek , e também @ja2_photos , @avesdeitanhaem e @thiagojavier para colaborar com suas fotos nessa corrente. . . . #parquenacionaldoitatiaia #earthfocus #earthpix #omelhorclick #canon #canonbr #canongallery #fineartphotography #natgeofineart #yourshotphotography #yourshotphotographer #natgeo #natgeobrasil #suafoto #bbcbrasil #fotografiadenatureza #natgeotravel #bbcbrasil #bbcearth #landscape #avesbrazil #birds_captures #birds_bees_flowers_n_trees #natgeotravel #lilaleite

DE BRAZZA MONKEY The Latin name of this species is “neglectus”, meaning 'neglect'. The animal is so called due to its primary defensive instinct: when threatened, De Brazza’s monkey typically freezes, neglecting its surroundings. When feeling danger, De Brazza’s monkeys curl up into a ball that only their backs are visible. They are able to remain in this position for long periods of up to eight hours, until they make sure the danger has passed. . . .#wildlifephotography #photography #wildlife #photographysouls #nature #photographylovers #wildlifeplanet #photographyislife #naturephotography #photographylover #wildlife_perfection #monkey #wildlifeonearth #photographyeveryday #natgeo #photographer #wildlifeaddicts #photooftheday #wildlife_seekers #photo #animalelite #debrazzamonkey #natgeowild #monkeys #splendid_animals #primate #darwinning #charlesdarwin #wildlife_vision #photographylife

It's springtime and the flowers are blooming. This means pollinators are a buzz and doing their job going from flower to flower. Did you know that besides bees there are other types of pollinators? They include birds, butterflies, beetles, bats, small mammals and flies? Pollinators are also under a lot of stress right now from pesticide use, habitat destruction and climate change. With each purchase of our yellow toothbrush, you will support pollinator conservation. We proudly support the mission of @xercessociety 🐝🦋 . . . #mamap #bambootoothbrush #bee #bees #nature #savethebees #wildlife #blondie #honeybee #pollinators #flowers #garden #flower #wildlifephotography #honey #gardening #conservation #butterfly #natgeo #animalfacts #naturephotography #savetogether #bumblebee #pollinatormonday #organic #birds #urbangarden #honeybees #plants #pollination

La llama (Lama glama) es un mamífero artiodáctilo doméstico de la familia Camelidae, abundante en la Puna o Altiplano de los Andes de Perú, Bolivia, Chile, Ecuador, Argentina y Colombia. Fue domesticada por los pueblos andinos nativos mediante selección artificial a partir del guanaco. Según recientes estudios de ADN, esto ocurrió en principio de manera independiente en tiempo y espacio, en sectores del sur del Perú, norte de Chile, oeste de Bolivia y el norte de Argentina. Fue aprovechada al máximo por el imperio Inca: se obtenía carne y lana de él, y era aprovechado como animal de carga (el único antes de la llegada de los españoles a América, con excepción de los perros de los trineos inuit). #zoo #zoology #llama #llamaglama #moments #places #spaces #nature #photographs #dreams #life #family #pictures #Concepción #Chile #zoológicoConcepción #Chile #photographyofchile #photografyofday #naturephotography #natgeo
