#Repost @natgeo ・・・ Video by @stephenwilkes. This aerial view of Lake Bogoria, in Kenya, Africa shows the “bird blind”, and location we documented the migration of the Lesser Flamingo in. This area is on the largest feeding areas and a magnificent backdrop for my new “Day to Night” series with National Geographic. Using a drone, we observed thousands of Lesser Flamingo flight patterns as they took off along the water. I was drawn to the contrast of light and shadow and how effortlessly they took to the air. You can see this and more behind the scenes video at the National Geographic museum exhibition, “Transcend the Passage of Time in ‘Day to Night: In the Field with Stephen Wilkes’, through April 30, 2018. Please see the “Day to Night” photographs which are part of a story, “The Journeys of Migratory Birds, in the March issue of National Geographic magazine. Follow me @stephenwilkes to see more images from my bird migration series and to learn more about my process in creating these images, please check out my TED talk link in my bio. #lakebogoria #kenya #africa #birdmigration #lesserflamingo #flamingo #aerial #flight #nature #daytonight #natgeomuseum #natgeo #iobservo #observenature

#Repost @natgeotravel ・・・ Photo @ladzinski / A pair of #JamesFlamingo’s affectionately intertwining their necks at Bolivia’s thermally active #RedLagoon. The James flamingo is a year round resident of the Andean Plateau, weathering the harsh winter here which can reach temperatures of -30 Fahrenheit. The James flamingo was long thought to be extinct until a small flock was rediscovered in 1956. To see more from this beautiful part of the world please visit @ladzinski #iobservo #observenature

We rarely notice the wonders of nature. We don't seek the joy in this pleasantly created nature. We want to visit other places of entertainment or relaxation instead. We don't realize the source of entertainment that is nature. Spending time in observing this nature that provides actual relaxation to our souls. Sitting in a garden and observing it. The fresh grass.... The evergreen trees.... The laurel bushes.... The appealing flowers with the odour so aromatic...... The weeny insects retaining the nectar.... The birds foraging diligently.... Listening to their chirping......or their voices of praying and etc. We don't really observe any of it. Notice it and then you won't desire for any mall,cinema and etc....as the nature provides the massive relaxation to our minds. #Observenature#nature#loveit#liveit#admire #think#spendtime#love#listen#poetry#poetryzz#caption_your_pic

Hiking at the Deschutes River under the ponderosa pines. I think these are some of my favorite trees with a distinctive bark that looks like puzzle pieces. #outdoorhourchallenge #observenature #treehugger #vitaminD #ponderosa #treesofinstagram #homeschoolmoms #homeschool #puzzlepiece #mydailywalk
