Oh Lucky Day! Of the many times I’ve been to the Galapagos, this was the only time ever I saw this rare pairing of a vermillion flycatcher perching atop a giant tortoise. Highlands of Isla Santa Cruz, Galapagos, Ecuador. (From a few years back.) #galapagos #tortoise #galapagosislands #gianttortoise #galapagostortoise #vermillionflycatcher #bird #unlikelyanimalfriends #ecuador #expeditiongallery

BIRD CURVES #1: Such a strange bird with its huge body, powerful legs, and long neck. This Somali ostrich is tenderly plucking delicate stalks of grass seeds to eat. Samburu National Reserve, Kenya. #ostrich #bird #neck #grass #samburu #kenya # africa #safari #photosafari #sony #sonya7riii #BeAlpha #expeditiongallery

My mother, before she ever became a mom. I'm so fortunate for all she taught me, from learning how to downhill ski from the age of 3, to always being willing to talk about the important things in life like sex, drugs, and rock & roll. She smartly urged me out of the nest, then always encouraged me to pursue my many far-flung dreams. She's still truckin' along at nearly 93. #happymothersday

Just finished five days in the Marquesas Islands, and had one of the most magical underwater encounters I've ever experienced . . . swimming with several manta rays feeding around us in a bay on Hiva Oa, French Polynesia, South Pacific Ocean. #mantaray #marquesas #frenchpolynesia #pacificocean #gopro #hero7black #expeditiongallery

In honor of Earth Day, I offer this mind-bending perspective on our lovely planet, our "Mother Earth," reminding us that she's dressed far more in deep blue oceans than in the lands we inhabit. The health of the oceans is critical to the health of the earth and to our survival. #earthday #earthday2019 #planet #noplanetb #haribumi #ocean #oceano #oneearth

As supreme fliers, the far ranging great frigatebird (Fregata minor) displays astounding feats. Researchers deploying satellite transmitters on these birds have logged them staying aloft for up to 48 days straight (sleeping one hemisphere of their brain while soaring), and reaching altitudes of 4,000 m. (> 13,000 ft.). Remarkable birds! #frigatebird #seabird #flight #cloud #sky #sony #sonya7riii #BeAlpha #expeditiongallery

An immature magnificent frigatebird out-maneuvering a young red-footed booby in flight. With a wingspan of over 2 meters, incredible acrobatic flying skills, and the lowest wing-loading of any bird in the sky, frigates are an endless delight to watch fly. #seabird #frigatebird #redfootedbooby #flight #kleptoparasitism #caribbean #sony #sonya7riii #BeAlpha #expeditiongallery

Magnificent frigatebird heckling a red-footed booby over the Caribbean Sea. Though frigates are best known for this behavior of stealing food from other seabirds, most frigatebirds typically make an "honest" living plucking fish from the surface of the sea. #seabird #frigatebird #redfootedbooby #kleptoparasitism #caribbean #sony #sonya7riii #BeAlpha #expeditiongallery

Okay, I'll admit it, I'm a total sucker for lion cubs, and will unapologetically spend hours watching them. This one is part of the newest generation in the famous Marsh Pride in the Masai Mara. #lion #cub #safari #photosafari #masaimara #governorscampcollection #kenya #africa #sony #sonya7riii #BeAlpha #expeditiongallery

Edvard Munch spills his pumpkin spice latte . . . (Accidental mishap by a local latte artist who winced instead of screaming. I thought it looked spooky cool.) #halloween #the scream #edvardmunch #coffee #pumpkinspice #latte #jackolantern

"Hey, look how tall my shadow is now!" Aerial view of a giraffe in morning light. Always love the chance for a doors-off helicopter ride in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. #giraffe #aerial #wildlife #photosafari #chitabe #okavango #okavangodelta #botswana #africa #travel #canon #wildernesssafaris #expeditiongallery

Sometimes you just get lucky....evening light as the leopard returns to its kill across an opening in the angled tree where you've been waiting. "Yeah, Go ahead, make my day." Thanks to our great guides at Chitabe Camp (Phinley, Ant, and Ebs) for always leading us to so many wonderful sightings. #leopard #photosafari #chitabe #okavango #okavangodelta #botswana #africa #travel #canon #wildernesssafaris #expeditiongallery

Had an amazing morning watching a crazy circus of interactions between hyenas and wild dogs at a fresh elephant carcass. Chitabe Camp in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. A great finale to many days of marvelous sightings.

Back on WiFi after time in the bush on safari. Had some great moments with impala flying past our vehicle. Did some motion-blur on a few passes.

Hitting on the cuteness channel, this lion cub crawled up a termite mound to survey its realm after hours of playing with its siblings.
