🦒Happy World Giraffe Day 🦒 At the current rate of human interference, opportunities to see these majestic creatures, may only too soon be limited to zoos and captive breeding facilities . The Giraffe species population in the wild is also in rapid decline due to deforestation, urban encroachment, poaching and the illegal bush meat trade. 😲☹️😡Sorry Mr Rhino, although you are sadly on the frontline, sometimes it’s not all about you, and today is not your day 😊 We feel so privileged to have witnessed wild and free populations in their natural environment, and also to have contributed in a very small way to the efforts behind those individuals and institutions that tirelessly dedicate their time and resources in the hope of preserving this species for all to see. This little chap, at the time, was the newest member of the breeding herd of Rothschild Giraffe at The Giraffe Centre/Giraffe Manor co-located in Nairobi, Kenya. Like all good photographic opportunities involving children and animals, this one declined to position to avail himself of that glorious Kenyan golden hour afternoon lighting. Nevertheless, it made for an excellent post editing candidate for that silhouette backlighting effect. 😀 #bestnatureshot #wildlife_perfection #bns_naturs #canonphotography #canon7dmkII #canonaustralia #eye_spy_nature #ig_great_shots #ig_naturelovers #ig_naturepictures #inspiring_photography_admired #nature_wizards #naturelovers #nature_shooters #nature_sultans #wildlife_seekers #wildlifephotography #wildlife_aroundworld #wildlifeconservation #travelphotography #featuremeteds #stoppoaching #rothschildgiraffe #giraffeconservationfoundation #giraffeconservation #giraffemanor #giraffecentre #thesafaricollection

Mating Crimson-ringed Whiteface dragonflies (Leucorrhinia glacialis), Ontario, Canada. The Crimson-winged whiteface is a widespread dragonfly, found in all 10 Canadian provinces, as far north as 56 degrees north, and as far south as California. How cool is that? . Every day I post an original nature photograph along with some interesting facts about the subject matter.
