#repost#natgeo with #repostsaveapp · · · Photo by #paulnicklen | A penguin’s journey to raise its young is not an easy one. This adult king penguin must first survive dangerous ocean waters to gather krill and fish to feed its chick. Luckily, this parent has been successful in its hunt, and returns with a full belly. However, catching a meal is just the first step, as this adult penguin must now navigate its way through a maze of hungry chicks, each calling out for food. To add to the chaos, while adults are out at sea, juvenile penguins move great distances, making a reunion far from easy. Being a penguin parent looks exhausting, but it is fascinating to photograph this extensive process. #followme at #paulnicklen for more photos from my Antarctic adventures. #penguin#antarctica#wildlife#photography
I’m never going to get to the places where the talented #paulnicklen and #jimmy_chin take their fabulous #photographs so I thought I’d post some not very good photos of lumps of #ice in the #cityoflondon.
Harda nizamlı bir sistem varsa,orada mütləq ağıl və dərrakə var.Sistem nə qədər böyük ,dəqiq və ecazkardırsa,Onu yaradan elm və ağıl da bir o qədər böyük və dəqiqdir. Thanks for the beatiful pictures #paulnicklen 👍☺
I can’t believe it’s been a year since we took these photos. The day was filled with love, empowerment, and inspiration. We first started the day at the #metoomarch ✊🏼. This was my first march and it is unforgettable. I am so grateful to have been there surrounded by a community wanting to bring awareness and justice.❤️🙌🏼 . We then went to see the 🎄at Rockefeller center. It was J’s first time, so I was excited that we got to share this memory together 👫. Being surrounded by everyone’s excitement, the light show, and of course the massive 🎄never gets old. We ended the night meeting @paulnicklen at his gallery! He’s a National Geographic photographer & founder of Sea Legacy (a conservation society)📸. You HAVE to check out his work and see what an impact he’s making! (Who doesn’t 💗 a good polar bear or 🐧 photo?!) Thanks J for always supporting me and tagging along no matter what 😘😘😘😘
#repost @pedromcbride with @get_repost ・・・ If you enjoy the beauty and wildlife of the polar regions, check out my good friend and fellow photographer @paulnicklen new book “Born to Ice”. The photos are stunning and stories are powerful reminders how these frozen gems make our world so special, but also a call to protect these delicate, changing ecosystems. I’ve known Paul for two decades and been inspired by his passion and vision—Keep it up Paulie.

Lantana camara is one of the most problematic invasive plants in many parts of the world. It is probably the most widespread terrestrial invasive plant in Africa. L. camara forms extensive, dense and impenetrable thickets in forestry plantations, orchards, pasture land, waste land and in natural areas. The rapid spread of L. camara is associated with human induced disturbance. However, it can also invade forest gaps. In areas where natural fires occur they stimulate thicker regrowth. The fallen leaves produce allelopathic substances that prevent other plants germinating and growing beneath L. camara which results in no understory below the thickets and a "monoculture" of the alien plant which continues to spread and adapt to drier conditions as well as invading medium to high rainfall areas in East Africa. Rapid spread is also characteristic of wild L. camara in East Africa such that many hundreds of hectares of both productive grazing and protected grasslands/woodlands have been observed to become heavily invaded with a few years of first infiltration from roadside infestations (G.W. Howard pers.com.). L. camara is poisonous to livestock and children have been known to die after eating unripe berries. It is also unpalatable, and in large doses (approximately 1% of total body weight) is poisonous, particularly to cattle. If untreated L. camara poisoning can result in photosensitisation, loss of appetite, jaundice, liver and other organ/tissue damage, and even death (Queensland Government, 2003). In Australia it is also considered a serious weed of the plantation timber and orchard industries (Swarbrick et al., 1998).
