Learned a lot about shooting through crowds in a short amount of time. The jest of it, it's not a ton of fun.

So there was a concert before the fireworks show this weekend and I decided I'd see how some photos turned out. I'm not disappointed but now I just wish had a press pass to get right up by the stage. See so many great shot opportunities that just can't get being that far into the crowd.

Evet gerginim, ÇÜNKÜ TÜRKİYEDE DENİZ KENARINDA BİLE STRES ATAMAZSINIZ! Plaja gidince önce nispeten temiz biz yer bulmanız gerek, mesela burası nispeten temiz bir yer👆🏼 Sonra cam kırıklarını, bira kapaklarını, izmaritleri ve diğer çöpleri temizlemelisiniz. Çiğdem kabuklarını temizleyemiyor insan, mecbur yapışacak ayağınıza. Ancak tüm bunlardan sonra çocuklarınız rahat rahat oynayabilir, siz de bir nefes alabilirsiniz. Ha burası birkaç sitenin kullandığı bir plaj, insanlar çöp attıkları yerde oturup denize girmekten rahatsız olmuyorlar 🤷🏼‍♀️ Böyle işte. #natureisspeaking #naturedoesntneedpeople #peopleneednature #doğaçöplükdeğildir #temizplajistiyoruz #yereçöpatma #izmaritlerçöpe #cesmeplajları #ovacik

Photo by @amivitale A giraffe browses alongside cattle in outside of Doulouwal Peulh, Niger - a village about 50 miles outside of the capital of Niamey where people live side by side with the endangered West African giraffe in the country's government-defined Giraffe Zone. In order to help the longterm survival prospects of this subspecies, the Nigerien government with help from a team from the Giraffe Conservation Foundation ( @giraffe_conservation ) and Sahara Conservation Fund recently worked together to translocate eight giraffe from the Giraffe Zone to the Niger's Gadabedji Biosphere Reserve, where the giraffe had been absent for 50 years. The translocation was a success and all are doing wonderfully.

I was up early and went to walk around Okoboji to take some photos. This area was close to the hotel and completely empty at that time. Which compared to the mass amounts of people that would later hide out in the rain storm. Waking up early isn't always fun, but it will get you a lot of shots that you can't get during the day.

A lot of people avoid getting out in the rain but I love it! The moment a rain shower ends, a forest comes to life and excites all the senses. The colors are more vibrant, the sounds are soft but clear, the smells are earthy and musk, you can truly feel the Earth breathe. It's in these moments I just stop and appreciate the balance, connections, and interactions found throughout nature. We all must do our part to protect it. Remember, small actions can have big reactions. #WanderOn #DefendRivers #KeepItClean #LeaveNoTrace #NoPlastic #PlanetOrPlastic #ReduceReuseRecycle #Mountain #MountainLife #Alabama #AlabamaOutdoors #ThisIsAlabama #RiverLife #Watershed #Water #River #Stream #Forest #Trees #Environment #Nature #NatureIsSpeaking #SaveOurWater #SaveOurWatersheds #BeOutdoors #GetOutside #LiveOutside #OptOutside #Beard #BeardLife

Photo by @amivitale Three young West African giraffe graze outside of Doulouwal Peulh, Niger - a village about 50 miles outside of the capital of Niamey where people live side by side with the endangered West African giraffe in the country's government-defined Giraffe Zone. Female giraffes give birth standing up and newborns are welcomed to the world with an almost five foot drop to the ground! However, within 30 minutes they are standing, and only hours later they are able to run with their mothers. At one point, the range of West African giraffe stretched across the Sahel, from Nigeria to Senegal. Illegal hunting, climate change and habitat loss all contributed to the population's decline, and by the mid-90's, only 49 remained, in this zone. Today, while still highly threatened, thanks to heroic conservation efforts, they number 600. In December, in order to help the longterm survival prospects of this subspecies, the Nigerien government with help from a team from the Giraffe Conservation Foundation ( @giraffe_conservation ) and Sahara Conservation Fund worked together to translocate eight giraffe from the Giraffe Zone to the Niger's Gadabedji Biosphere Reserve.

African Penguins and Egyptian Geese, Boulders Beach, Simon’s Town, South Africa The African penguin is a unique species, found only on the coastlines of South Africa and Namibia. They were once numerous throughout southwestern Africa, but these marine birds are currently classified as endangered (as a result of habitat destruction, oil spills, pollution and overfishing; of the estimated 1.5 million African penguins that existed in 1910, only 10% remained at the end of the 20th century ). Two breeding pairs arrived at Boulders Beach in 1982, and founded their little colony. Since then, numbers have grown to around 3,000. www.melvinmapa.net/travelsouthafrica 🇿🇦 . #freelancephotographer #travelphotography #photographyproject #animalphotography #wildlifephotographer #animalconservation #travelphotographer #everydayafrica #documentyourdays #wildlifephotosafari #everydayphotography #wildlifephotography #nikonphotography #documentaryphotography #photographylovers #photographyislife #natgeoyourshot #melvinmapa #naturephotography #naturephotos #thephotographyofmelvinmapa #nikonasia #wildlifephoto #photographysouls #documentaryphotographer #natureisspeaking #nikon 📷 . ©️MELVIN MAPA

Cape Point, South Africa Ostriches were almost wiped out in the 18th century due to hunting for feathers. By the middle of the 19th century, due to the extensive practice of ostrich farming the ostrich population increased. The movement changed to domesticating and plucking ostriches, instead of hunting. Ostriches have been succesfully domesticated and are now farmed throughout the world, particularly in South Africa, for meat, feathers and leather. The leather goes through a tanning process and is then manufactured into fashion accessories such as boots and bags. . www.melvinmapa.net/travelsouthafrica 🇿🇦 . #freelancephotographer #travelphotography #photographyproject #animalphotography #wildlifephotographer #animalconservation #travelphotographer #everydayafrica #documentyourdays #wildlifephotosafari #everydayphotography #wildlifephotography #nikonphotography #documentaryphotography #photographylovers #photographyislife #natgeoyourshot #melvinmapa #naturephotography #naturephotos #thephotographyofmelvinmapa #nikonasia #wildlifephoto #photographysouls #documentaryphotographer #natureisspeaking #nikon 📷 . ©️MELVIN MAPA

Bryde’s Whale logging, Hermanus Bryde's (pronounced "broodus" ) whales are members of the baleen whale family. They are considered one of the "great whales," or rorquals, a group that also includes blue whales and humpback whales. Bryde’s whales are named for Johan Bryde, a Norwegian who built the first whaling stations in South Africa in the early 20th century. Bryde’s whales are found in warm, temperate oceans including the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific. Some populations of Bryde's whales migrate with the seasons, while others do not migrate, making them unique among other migrating baleen whales. Historically, Bryde’s whales were not major targets for commercial whaling. However, whalers have recently hunted Bryde’s whales off the coasts of Indonesia and the Philippines. Additionally, some hunters in Japan continue to take Bryde’s whales as part of their scientific research whaling program. . www.melvinmapa.net/travelsouthafrica 🇿🇦 . #freelancephotographer #travelphotography #photographyproject #animalphotography #wildlifephotographer #animalconservation #travelphotographer #everydayafrica #documentyourdays #whalephotography #everydayphotography #wildlifephotography #nikonphotography #documentaryphotography #photographylovers #wildlifeshots #natgeoyourshot #melvinmapa #naturephotography #naturephotos #thephotographyofmelvinmapa #nikon #wildlifephoto #photographysouls #documentaryphotographer #natureisspeaking #nikon 📷 . ©️MELVIN MAPA

Burchell's Zebra, Vaalwater, South Africa Burchell's Zebra’s body stripes are less numerous and extend around the belly. Leg striping is less prominent. Each individual Zebra has unique markings and act in similar fashion as fingerprints in humans. It is said that newborn Zebra stay close to the mother to imprint her patterns. The southern Burchell's Zebra has a distinctive shadow brown stripe in the white stripe, a characteristic which diminishes the further north they occur. Burchell's zebra is the only subspecies of zebra which may be legally farmed for human consumption. . www.melvinmapa.net/travelsouthafrica 🇿🇦 . #freelancephotographer #STOPPOACHING #travelphotography #natureisspeaking #animalphotography #wildlifephotographer #animalconservation #travelphotographer #picturesoftheday #documentyourdays #wildlifephotosafari #everydayphotography #wildlifephotography #nikonphotography #documentaryphotography #photographylovers #dontletthemdisappear #natgeoyourshot #melvinmapa #naturephotography #naturephotos #thephotographyofmelvinmapa #nikon #wildlifephoto #photographysouls #documentaryphotographer #everydayafrica #nikon 📷 . ©️MELVIN MAPA

White Rhinoceros, Vaalwater, South Africa The Rhino is a member of the "Big Five"—what were considered to be the most dangerous animals by colonial hunters, namely Leopard, Elephant, Lion, Buffalo, and the Rhino. Today, however, Big Five sightings are what draw many of the tourists to Africa. The rarest of its members is the Rhino which is now confined to protected reserves. White Rhino are not white but grey, and the name is thought to be a misinterpretation of the Afrikaans word "weit" meaning wide in reference to their square shaped mouth which helps them graze. The Black Rhino is slightly smaller than the White Rhino. It is a browser and has a pointed lip that is specially adapted for pulling leaves off branches. Despite increased anti-poaching patrols and initiatives Rhino poaching has increased dramatically in recent years and if South Africa continues to lose Rhino at the current rate of over 400 a year, Rhino could be extinct as soon as 2025. The demand for Rhino horn in Asia is massive with it fetching over $65,000 a kilogram on the black market, making it pricier than diamonds, gold and even cocaine. The reason for this sudden increase is the mistaken belief by Asian traditional healers that Rhino horn is a cure for cancer. . www.melvinmapa.net/travelsouthafrica 🇿🇦 . #freelancephotographer #STOPPOACHING #travelphotography #natureisspeaking #animalphotography #wildlifephotographer #animalconservation #travelphotographer #picturesoftheday #documentyourdays #wildlifephotosafari #everydayphotography #wildlifephotography #nikonphotography #documentaryphotography #photographylovers #dontletthemdisappear #natgeoyourshot #melvinmapa #naturephotography #naturephotos #thephotographyofmelvinmapa #nikon #wildlifephoto #photographysouls #documentaryphotographer #everydayafrica #nikon 📷 . ©️MELVIN MAPA
