Indian bull-frog in habitat...one of the most common frog of mainland India but introduced in Andaman Islands and has now become an invasive there. This has resulted in decline in native endemic fauna in the archipelago.
Indian Rooler: is often seen perched along roadside trees and wires and are commonly seen in open grassland and scrub forest habitats. It is not migratory, but undertakes some seasonal movements. The largest population occurs in India, and several states in India have chosen it as their state bird.

Förlåt arma moder och alla andra belackare också för den delen, men för de väldigt få personer jag benämner som vänner så går jag över lik för om så krävs.
Jake the Snake har fyllt jämnt och bollen for ner i älven! Vad ska man göra liksom, vi hade ju trots allt betalat för bolljäveln och dessutom utlovat födelsedagsbarnet världens bästa kväll!?
Tänk ifall alla andra hade haft vad vi Rebels ändå har, förstå så enkel och vacker världen hade varit då... Tack allesammans och hipp hipp hurra❤️ #shr#skate#dirtythirty#fotboll#kristerlundström#zööndag#broderligkärlek#marvelousswimming#bbcwildlife
Xidulu the female leopard turns and waits for her two cubs to catch up with her as she walks towards our lodge in the Northern Sabi Sands.
An endearing moment!

In a case of sheer dumb luck, we decided to do a bit of a wander across the road today and stumbled across a female Wanderer or Monarch Butterfly laying eggs! I was pretty excited when I found a little, as in much smaller than my pinky finger, caterpillar. When I see them, they're usually super chunky so I was pretty caught up trying to get some shots of it when I noticed a butterfly flying slowly and very deliberately around us.
I don't know about you, but I find taking photos of butterflies ridiculously frustrating because they're just so...flighty I guess. But this lady was taking her damn sweet time. And that's when I noticed her clinging onto the milkweed, like really holding on, and curling her abdomen up and under the leaves - egg laying! Now trying to get an image of the actual event turned out to much more difficult than you might imagine, but with all the plants in the way and her propensity to spin around at the last minute, I kind of failed. Matt got a photo of the moment that the egg actually exited her body, of course, just to irritate me I'm sure. But it's blurry so that makes me happy at least. 😂
