Female Lesser Scaup by David Cutts The Lesser Scaup (Aythya affinis) is a small North American diving duck that migrates south as far as Central America in winter. It is informally known as the Little Bluebill or Broadbill. This female Lesser Scaup calls to her mate at Russell Creek Park in Plano, Texas. #russellcreekpark #planotexas #cuttsnaturephotography #davidcutts #wildlifephotography #TexasWildlife #nature #naturephotography #BetterOutside #texasphotographer #texasproud #your_best_birds #texasphotography #instagramtexas #lonestarstate #fineartphotography #birdrules #canonusa #tamron150600g2 #withmytamron #extraordinary #naturaltexas #lonestarstate #lenscoat #TrueTexas #gettheshot

Nutria resting along the coast. Known also as coypu, nutria originate from South America and have established populations in Asia, Europe and North America. These guys are a commonality in marshy and coastal areas throughout Texas. The view towards these exotic species tends to be the same view with most other exotic species; invasive. Introduced for the purpose of controlling plant species, these guys now devastate plant life which strains native wildlife species. Nutria breed often and efforts to neutralize them are not highly successful. #igtexas #animal_bestshots #txstateparks #bewild #betteroutside #lifeisbetteroutside #animalfanatics #wildernessphotography #wildlife_vision #wildlife_in_bl #wildlife_perfection #wildernessphotography #exclusive_wildlife #nature_sultans #nature_captures #animal_sultans #animalelite #wildlifelovers #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeseekers #animalpolis

Sunrise in Patagonia anyone? Not always easy getting up for sunrise but these views make it more than worth it! Tag a friend who would catch this sunrise! ______________________________ 📸:@marcograssiphotography ---------------------------------------------------- #betteroutside #hiking #texas #amarillo #palodurocanyon #paloduro #pandhandle #westtexas #trailhead #trail #trailsign #outdoor #outdoorphotography #capitolpeak ss

Another beauty that can be found in the coastal prairie during winter! The LeConte’s Sparrow breeds in the prairies of the Midwestern United States and Central Canada but relies on the bluestem seeds in the prairie at Sheldon for its winter food source. Come on out to @sheldonlakestatepark to find one! #coastalprairie #birder #txstateparks #betteroutside
🌵 #Sunrise to #Sunset A wonderful day in the #SuperstitionMountains with great company. Beautiful views, interesting rock formations (do you see the 2 faces?), diverse plant life, a challenging climb and descent (the descent is always more challenging for me), and even two baby tarantulas! 🕷 Constantly learning. Thanks to Carrie, Karen, Letlet, and David for sharing an amazing day! 🌵 “Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.” ~Gary Snyder 🌵 #liveyouradventure #optoutside #followyourcuriosity #neverstopexploring #discoverearth #passionpassport #adventurethisway #beautifuldestinations #arizona #hiking #desertscape #betteroutside #rei #hiking #saguaro #sonora #sonorandesert #flatiron #explore #exploremore
Perfect day to clear the mind at @garnerstatepark. If you want a booty workin’ hike, the trail to Old Baldy is for you (steep, short 0.53 mile). It’s for you if you also love aerial views. All you hear is the sound of water crashing at the falls, and leaves rustling from the trees and wind at Old Baldy Summit. #Concan #FrioRiver #GarnerStatePark #TxStateParks #BetterOutside #IGTexas

The juniper brush was buzzing with woodpeckers including a pair of ladder-backed woodpeckers. As fate would have it, I couldn't manage to capture a photo with both the female and male ladder-backed. After hopping around in this tree, the ladder-backed woodpeckers moved deeper into the thicket and out of sight. Golden-fronted woodpeckers were the other species spotted in the same location. #ig_discover_wildlife #ig_discover_birdslife #ig_birdwatchers #animalsfanatics #amongthewild #ourwild #keepitwild #liveyouradventure #livewild #animals_in_world #exclusive_wildlife #splendid_animals #wildlifelovers #wildlifephotography #wildernessphotography #lifeisbetteroutside #betteroutside #
Obligatory London Tourist photo. These iconic phone booths, when not in use by the homeless as shelter or as trash bins, are the frequent subjects of tourist photos, but other than that they serve little purpose in the age of smartphones. I will say that they do add a pop of color to the London cityscape. . #thesmokinghiker #urbanhiking #hiking #hikinglondon #explorehiking #hikingadventures #hikingtrail #hiker #hikinglife #hikerlife #betteroutside #betterouthere #texasphotographer #londonsights #londonsightseeing #londonlove #londoniloveyou #londonphonebox #londonphonebooth #londontelephonebox #londontelephonebooth

True Cattleheart by David Cutts The True Cattleheart butterfly (Parides eurimedes mylotes) is found from Mexico to northern South America, where it is commonly found in tropical forests. This specimen was photographed at the Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure in Branson, Missouri. #cuttsnaturephotography #davidcutts #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #BetterOutside #texasphotographer #fineartphotography #canonusa #tamron150600g2 #withmytamron #lenscoat #butterflypalacebranson #butterflies #butterfly
Hunting Heron by David Cutts Statuesque, stately, and elegantly plumaged, with long necks and long legs, Great White Herons (Ardea alba) rank among our most discernible and beautiful birds. They use their long, sharp bills to stab at fish, frogs, or large insects while gracefully wading through shallows, ponds, marshes, and ditches. This Great White Heron is looking for something to eat at White Riock Lake in Dallas, Texas. #whiterocklake #dallas #cuttsnaturephotography #davidcutts #wildlifephotography #TexasWildlife #nature #naturephotography #BetterOutside #texasphotographer #texasproud #your_best_birds   #texasphotography #instagramtexas #lonestarstate #fineartphotography #birdrules #canonusa #tamron150600g2 #withmytamron #extraordinary #naturaltexas #lonestarstate #lenscoat #TrueTexas #gettheshot
Doing fire prep work earlier this year has definitely taken me to some beautiful places in the #TPWD inventory. “Devil's Sinkhole is a National Natural Landmark that houses one of the state’s largest colonies of Mexican free-tailed bats. This enormous vertical cavern is thought to be the largest single-chamber cavern in Texas. The opening is a shaft approximately 50 feet wide that drops 140 feet into the cavern. Here, the shaft balloons out to a diameter of over 320 feet and reaches a total depth of over 350 feet. From late spring through early fall the sinkhole provides an amazing venue to witness over 3 million bats stream out into the evening sky.” 🦇 #flashbackfriday . . . #txstateparks #betteroutside #texas #tx #hillcountry #devilssinkholestatenaturalarea #devilssinkhole #ig #cactus #nature #cavern #wild #igtexas #texastodo

Ran into a neighbor this evening and got to talking about ranchland along the Rio Grande. Consequently, that’s what’s on my mind tonight. Here’s a shot from a 2014 exploration. Try to imagine bird calls echoing through these steep canyon walls and kingfishers darting by like fighter jets. Tomorrow I’ll post a surprising wildlife find from the same trip. #riogrande #riogranderiver #river #texasrivers #ranch #texasranch #texasranches #canyon #slotcanyon #desert #betteroutside #getoutside #goexplore #igtexas #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #tmwanders #canon #exploretexasranches #teamcanon #landscape #naturephotography #landscapephotography #landscapes #westtexas
Princely Pintail by David Cutts The Pintail Duck, or Northern Pintail (Anas acuta), is a medium to large sized migratory duck that gets its name from the long tail feathers found on the male of the species, which may measure up to 1/4 of the Pintail Drake's overall length. Here a Pentail drake stands on a log at White Rock Lake in Dallas, Texas. #whiterocklakedallas #whiterocklake #cuttsnaturephotography #davidcutts #wildlifephotography #TexasWildlife #nature #naturephotography #BetterOutside #texasphotographer #texasproud #your_best_birds   #wearetexashillcountry #texasphotography #instagramtexas #lonestarstate #fineartphotography #birdrules #canonusa #tamron150600g2 #withmytamron #extraordinary #naturaltexas #lonestarstate #lenscoat #TrueTexas #gettheshot

Alright I know you’re not interested in my vacation pics, but this place is too incredible not to share. Btw we searched high and low for places to off-road in Oahu and seems unless you’re a local they don’t exist 🤷🏻‍♂️ so we had to do a helicopter tour instead. @magnum_helicopters . . . #helicoptertour #hawaii #magnumhelicopters #diamondheadcrater #pearlharbor #waikiki #kaneohe #doorsoffhelicopter #oahu #wintervacation #summerinwinter #ikamper #rtt #betteroutside #adventuremobile #Jeepgrandcherokee #jeep #wk2 #optoutside #overland #overlanding #4x4 #offroad
Stand back! These 2 bucks are duking it out at Possum Kingdom State Park west of #FortWorth . Winter is rut season for deer, a period of high energy, hormones and aggressive competition between males. 📷 Mike Richins #BetterOutside #TheRut #texashunting #Repost @texasparkswildlife

Do you wake up for sunrise over the Frio River when you’re at @garnerstatepark ? You should... or you could sleep in and just buy the puzzle. 🤷🏻‍♂️
