A female of Beautiful Demoiselle (Calopteryx virgo), photographed near the male of the previous photo. Damselflies are related to dragonflies. A good way to differentiate is to watch them perched as damselflies (Odonata: Zygoptera) fold the wings, while dragonflies (Odonata: Anisoptera) can not do and left them open.
One of the most beautiful and elegant seagulls of all species living in Spain, Audouin's Gull (Larus Audouinii). It suffered a severe decline in the western Mediterranean a few decades ago. However it seems that their populations are recovering and is no longer so threatened as it was a few years ago. The photo was taken at the Aire island in Menorca, Spain.
Lizards are ectotherms vertebrates. This means that they are unable to generate heat by themselves and, therefore, need for energy in the form of heat from outside. They usually do this in two ways: by heliothermy, absorbing heat from the sun's rays, or by tigmothermy, obtaining heat from the substrate in which they are (usually stones or rocks that are hot because they have received sunshine for a while). In this picture you can see a Carpetane lizard (Iberolacerta cyreni) in heliothermy in the Sierra de Gredos, Spain.
A dragonfly (Odonata:Anisoptera) resting a moment. Maybe he was taking the opportunity to locate a prey, on a dry stalk sticking out in a river. The photo was taken near the Masai-Mara reserve in Kenya.
One of those moments that gives you the willies. A young lioness (Panthera leo nubica) is choosing the menu today between a Burchell's zebras (Equus quagga burchellii) and impala (Aepyceros melampus). Photo taken at the Sweet Waters reserve in central Kenya.
Because the first thing that pops into one's head seeing these red-billed oxpeckers (Buphagus erythrorhynchus) on a Masai giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchi) is that great song by Led Zeppelin. The photo was taken in the Masai-Mara reserve in Kenya.
One of the most intense and fascinating events that can be observed in nature is, undoubtedly, the hunting. Moments before this photo a mother cheetah (Acinonyx jubatus raineyii) knocked down a Thomson's gazelle (Eudorcas thomsonii) in the middle of the savannah and, before killing it she took it with her cub and taught it how to kill. After the lesson mother and son ate the gazelle and then they had a bath to clean the blood preening each other. The photo was taken in the plains of the Masai-Mara, Kenya.
