A banded knob tailed gecko (Nephrurus wheeleri) from the Pannawonica region of Western Australia. Like most geckos, this species does not have eyelids to keep their eyes clean. Instead they use their long and flexible tongue to clean dirt, debris and water off their eyes and face. This is a behaviour I always love observing!
Today is Penguin 🐧 Awareness Day!!! So I’m skipping ahead a bit with this sneak peak of the magnificent King Penguins I saw in the Falklands. I can’t even tell you how cool it was to finally see them up close & personal. #kingpenguin#penguin
Some of my best ever images have been of European robins. They are such charismatic little birds and are so easy to find in the green spaces and parks of London. ⠀
This individual was bobbing about in a nearby tree when I took this image. The thing I like the most about this shot is the composition. Positioning the robin in the lower corner allowed a lot of the environment to be included in the background. The twisting, intertwining wood and branches were sufficiently blurred that they helped to create an almost ethereal scence.
