Quite certain that the eye of a Black Chested Snake Eagle makes for a better #selfie background than your bathroom tiles or dumbbells 😝

Here's a challange to selfie takers, instead of your bathroom, bedroom or gym mirror, how about you try get out and go somewhere different and unique. You may just be surprised how well nature compliments our narcissistic tendencies, and eventually leads us away from from them!

The Slender Mongoose is without a doubt my favorite little predator!

In the Kalahari area they're a brilliant redish brown like this little one. During midday when everything else is hiding from the heat, I can sit for hours under the shade of trees watching them.

Autumn colors in the @krugernationalpark just make scenes like this even more ethereal!

Can't wait to get back to this young lady!

You'd have to navigate galaxies to not get lost in the eyes of a Serval!

Go check out the page of @johannesburgwildlifevet to read more about this guys story, who's now not far off being release back into the wild!

This little fluff ball of fury was rescued and is now being rehabilitated by @johannesburgwildlifevet

If a baby Caracal doesn't make your heart feel like it's going to explode, you may wanna check your pulse!

He'll be raised and looked after by the JHB Wildlife Vet team until he's old enough to be soft released, to make sure he can feed and look after himself, and then he'll be set free to be in the African wild where he belongs!

Doesn't it just give you such hope for humanity that an organization like JHB Wildlife Vet exists, especially considering that they rely solely on the contributions and support of the public!

If you'd like to support or contribute to JHB Wildlife Vet, go check out their page. They share the most incredible wildlife rescue and rehabilitation stories, all made possible YOU!

Spent a couple of hours with this sub adult Leopardess while she unsuccessfully tried to catch Squirrels. I did catch up with her the next day and she had some blood stains around her mouth, so thankfully she must have eventually got it right!

Wanna hear something f♤♡♧ing cool?

@africanpangolinconservation is releasing Pangolins back into Northern Kwazulu Natal. It's an area they've been locally extinct for decades!

Follow them to keep up to date with this insanely inspiring story!

And if you'd like to be an insanely inspiring human, and support them in these and other remarkable efforts, you can click the link in my bio to contribute. Even the smallest contribution says

A true icon of the African bush! Got to admit, these solitary male Buffalo really resonate with me. Likely because I'm also happiest alone in the African wild.

You'll be a fool to mistake awkward for ineffective!

I like how this image illustrates the proportional difference between the almost awkward front legs, and the pure power of his back legs! They may appear slightly awkward here, but they are nothing less than perfectly engineered, built for precision steering which is counter balanced by the tail.

Finally been able to keep my eyes dry for long enough to process a photo of this little man!

I cannot even begin to tell you the magnitude of effort that's put into the rescue and rehabilitation of these ancient wonders!

And it doesn't always end like you've envisioned. But universal and cosmic law will have it that there is no loss without gain, no failure without victory, and no sorrow without joy. In fact, the distinction lies only in our perception!

That little sparkle may no longer be in his eyes, but it is certainly with everyone who ever had the privilege of experiencing this soul. And that sparkle now pervades the very collective consciousness inherent in us all!

The effort, the emotion, the time, the drive, the commitment, the passion and the perseverance put in by @africanpangolinconservation is the most selfless and pure thing you can experience! It's done without any expectation of thanks or recognition, their sole purpose is to save these souls...FOR US!

The very least we can do is take a moment and show them our gratitude by making even a small donation. And although they do need our support, for me it's not about the money, it's taking a minute to stop and just say thank you, we appreciate what you are doing...FOR US!
