Join us this Sunday 18th November at the Wild Walcot garden for a celebration and volunteer session from 10am-12:30pm. We will be tidying the garden for winter and planting some bulbs for spring and summer next year as well as adding a few new plants. Weather permitting we are hoping to have a fire and hot drinks and food but if you fancy joining us why not bring something along to share? It’s going to be a great chance to celebrate all the hard work that has gone into the project this year and make plans for 2019! #wildwalcot #communitygardens #urbanwildlife #volunteering #pollinators #walcotstreetbath
Fall nights, street lights, a deer and some motorbikes.
Plover camouflage. I wouldn't have seen them if they didn't move. Under a hazy sky (smoke, in this case) their white bellies reflect the same dull color as the shallows. #plover #shorebirds #shoreline #californialandscape #naturejournal #bird #birdwatching #urbanwildlife #urbansketcherssfbayarea #urbansketchers #watercolor #sketchbook #californiaburns #smokescape
Another butterfly. This time on the car. Was worried if it was injured. But then it flew away. #nofilters #noedit #butterfly #urbanwildlife

The curious nature which many parrots seem to share makes them great photography subjects. Like this crimson-bellied conure (AKA crimson-bellied parakeet) at Jurong Bird Park, Singapore. #singapore #singaporewildlife #wildlife #naturephotography #urbanwildlife #jurongbirdpark #birdpark #zoophotography #wildlifereservessingapore #birds #birdsofinstagram #parrot #parrots #crimsonbelliedparakeet #crimsonbelliedparakeets #crimsonbelliedconure #crimsonbelliedconures
Guess who's been rolling around in the weeds? This bison decided to show me his best side as we walked right in front on my Jeep at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. I must say I was glad to be inside the vehicle. While bison populations are on the rise, less than 30,000 are in conservation herds and of those only 5,000 are unfenced and disease free. It's estimated that 20-30 million bison once roamed North America. With numbers like that, I can't help but reflect on the fact that we as humans have a tendency to love nature to death. Recent news events in Colorado show not much has changed over the years...Do a Google search on Isak Heartstone's dismantling today or on the new regulations at Hanging Lakes Trail requiring permits and shuttles in 2019. As a teacher, I always encouraged my students to get out in nature. I wish I had placed more focus on our responsibility to use care when visiting the spaces and places we love. #bison #rockymountainarsenalnationalwildliferefuge #givingmethelook #rollingintheweeds #careforourplanet #findyourselfoutside #coloradowildlife #coloradowildlifephotography #urbanwildlife #denvercolorado #photography #americanbuffalo #tatonka #naturelover #naturephotography #coloradooutdoors #coloradophotography #optoutside #thegreatoutdoors #isakheartstone

The last picture I took of my buddy Marigold. He was so chill he didn't even get up when I approached. I really miss being able to get into the woods. I hope the deer remember me when I get back! #intothewoodsigo #whitetaileddeer #buck #whatsyournature #heritagepark #yourfarmingtonhills #naturalmichigan #michigandeer #michiganwildlife #urbanwildlife #deerbuddy #stupidjoints
An old picture of black-headed gulls along the Bosporus in Istanbul. Black-headed gulls have been found to synchronize their behavior with other members of their species in their immediate vicinity. #spi_action #throwback #tbt #bosphorus #istanbul #turkey #vacation #synchronicity #seagull #bird #eye_spy_birds #birds_adored #nuts_about_birds #action #clouds #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #urbanwildlife #wildlifephotography
Volvopluteus gloiocephalus or Big Sheath Mushroom. This fungus is present in all continents except Antarctica and can be appreciated in about every city garden where it decomposes matter recycling and generating new and precious fertile soil. #urbanwildlife #wildlifephotography #fungi #gardenlife #mushrooms #cidadenaturezapt #naturephotography #naturelovers #naturestudio
Need 2 DIRECTLY connect w/#TheWild in the middle of #YYC (not in a bar)? #NatureAndChill w/my #bunny #buddies the #LindsayParkBunnies 🐇🐰 They’re a band of pet escapees who made #LindsayPark their home. Unlike wild jackrabbits these fuzzy lil’ #FurBabies are friendly, tho b careful, because I don’t know them all & they might bite. I clear the almost-done veggies from my fridge this way.

Absolutely buzzing to have this photo featured on #anevenwildernightout and praised by @chris.packham and @paulsgoldstein. This means the absolute world to me!!!!!!! #urbanwildlife #photography #chrispackham #paulgoldstein #achievment #happytears #wildlife #britishwildlife #redbus #amateurphotographer
Orange you glad I posted another heron in front of a full autumn backdrop? It's heron pumpkin spice. I wonder what they think about when they stand around, maybe how freaking awesome they are. 😆 I mean come on, that hairdo is on point! ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ ◇ #natgeo #nationalgeographic #canon #canonphotography #canonusa #sigmaphoto #bird #freakingawesome #idahodaily #birdsofinstagram #birdnerd #bestbirds #heron #instanature #wildlife #greatblueheron #natgeoyourshot #photooftheday #outdooridaho #keepitwild #wildlife #wildlifeplanet #boise #urbanwildlife #idaho #boiseriver #cityoftrees #vogue #model #boiseparks

I spotted this gorgeous red-tailed hawk in @prospect_park just as the first snow of the season began to fall in Brooklyn. This raptor was fairly large which makes me think she was female (they’re roughly 25% larger than the dudes). I watched her land in this tree & chill for about 10 minutes, scoping the area for rats, squirrels, & the occasional Pomeranian passerby. She checked me out but was clearly unimpressed by my bad David Attenborough impression. Then she took off flying back towards the boathouse. This was a beautiful -and much needed- juxtaposition to NYC’s constant cacophony of sirens, horns, & jackhammers. And a reminder of why I love this city & her raptors so! 🦅 (#urbanwildlife #redtailedhawk #snow #prospectpark #nyc #brooklyn #science #aves #animals #scicomm #magic #raptor #birdofprey #hideyourchihuahuas
I get really excited about animals! Especially #Franks - the official bunnies of #edmonton (I named them all #Frank because I can). #urbanwildlife #wildlife #fuzzybunnies #fuzzybunny #cuteanimals #cutewildanimals #cutewildlife #bunnies
In response to a cute photo of my niece playing in snow, I sent this to my brother who lives on the opposite coast. “Is that fog?” he asked. Sadly not. But the stark reality of the raging Camp Fire still happening nearly 200 miles from here. 💔
Forest fires devastate human and nonhuman habitats. This older photograph shows a fawn and bobcat found together seeking shelter in the aftermath of a forest fire. #mojaveanimalprotection #wildfire #malibu #deerofinstagram #bobcat #wildlife #heartbreaking #heartwarming #animalrescue #smokythebear #california #fawn #catsofinstagram #deer #baby #cute #safe #california #thanksgiving #urbanwildlife #rescue #friends
Just spotted this Hawk. What’s that about? It’s a fun ritual to google the random wildlife that comes across my path. These questions regarding Hawk medicine are right on point. How about for you? 🦅🦉🐴🐺 Meaning of this bird... Do you need to learn how to move in harmony with other humans? Is fear keeping you caged and unable to fly toward making your dreams come true? Are you too focused on minutiae and need help seeing the bigger picture? @healingtouchvinyasa @breath_to_success @tahirihyoga @tahgroenjewelry #animal #wildlife #hawkenergy #animalmedicine #birds #urbanwildlife #mothernature

Feral cat in Maruyama Park, Kyoto. A friend who saw this photo commented that wealthier countries seem to have feral cats, while less well-off countries, more feral dogs. True? #Kyoto #maruyama #urbanwildlife #catsofjapan #catsofinstagram #catsatlarge

Working with this little guy has been one of best achievements with my photography yet. Not necessarily because of the shots I got but because of the turn around in his character by the end of the summer together. For ages I though there were only two cubs, but then I started getting glimpses of him in the gloom. Slowly he started venturing out but would run as soon as I moved. With time and the last evening I spent with him and his sisters, he came out played with a leaf just arms length from me then curled up and had a sleep. Going from the most timid little cub to being comfortable enough to sleep in front of me made the hours spent amongst the headstones worth it. #danrushtonphotography #wildlife #wildlifephotographer #wildlifephotography #nature #naturephotography #naturephotographer #urbanphotography #urbanwildlife #britishwildlife #fox #foxcub #bokeh #summer #poole #dorset #graveyard #nikond700 #sigma120300sports #300mm #f4
We interrupt fox week to bring you this female coyote from last spring. This site is another urban forest belonging to @indyparks and is also home to deer, raccoons, squirrels, and cottontail rabbits. #urbanwildlife #urbanecology
