Video by @franslanting and @christineeckstrom royal albatrosses are huge and when they get going with each other they ignore a photographer crouched nearby. their courtship involves an ecstatic dance ritual unrivaled in the bird world. mastery of it requires practice and that is what these birds are doing. they are born with a basic knowledge of the dance, but they can only secure a mate if they can perform it with confidence—and if they are in sync with their partner. in most birds it is the males who display and the females who choose, but in albatrosses males and females have equal roles as partners. these young royal albatrosses have gathered to practice courtship moves on each other in a group like teenagers in a mall. they’ve got the motivation, but they are trying too hard. when two albatrosses get more serious about each other, they will sneak away as a pair. to see a video of two adult royals who decided they are right for each other and ready to make a long term commitment, follow me @franslanting and @christineeckstrom @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #albatross #seabird #newzealand #antarctica #amazing #yearofthebird #wildlife #courtship

Photo by @franslanting south georgia island is one the wildest places on the planet. few people have set foot ashore on the rugged headlands where wandering albatrosses nest in the shelter of tussock grass. i photographed this bird in the evening with the last sunlight illuminating the highest peak of the island, mt. paget, while the reflected light from the sky made the bird glow. this male wanderer was waiting for a female to show up. when she did, they greeted each other with a spectacular courtship dance that is unique in the bird world. to see how albatrosses court and bond with each other, and to get a sense of how gigantic they are, follow me @franslanting and @christineeckstrom. @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #albatross #seabird #southgeorgiaisland #antarctica #amazing #yearofthebird #wildlife #courtship

Global distribution of penguins. ➖ “although almost all penguin species are native to the southern hemisphere, they are not found only in cold climates, such as antarctica. in fact, only a few species of penguin live so far south. several species are found in the temperate zone, and one species, the galápagos penguin, lives near the equator.” ➖ “the largest living species is the emperor penguin on average adults are about 1.1 m (3 ft 7 in) tall and weigh 35 kg (77 lb). the smallest penguin species is the little blue penguin, also known as the fairy penguin, which stands around 40 cm (16 in) tall and weighs 1 kg (2.2 lb). among extant penguins, larger penguins inhabit colder regions, while smaller penguins are generally found in temperate or even tropical climates. some prehistoric species attained enormous sizes, becoming as tall or as heavy as an adult human. these were not restricted to antarctic regions; on the contrary, subantarctic regions harbored high diversity, and at least one giant penguin occurred in a region around 2,000 km south of the equator 35 mya, in a climate decidedly warmer than today.” ➖ text source: tinyurl.com/ybumykdm ➖ like what i share? curating this page takes many cups of coffee, you can support me by buying me a cup via: ko-fi.com/amapaday (clickable link in my bio) ➖ #map #maps #cartography #geography #topography #mapping #mappe #carte #mapa #karta #worldmap #world #penguin #penguins #distribution #range #territory #habitat #antarctica #antarctic #south

⚓️ eric tabarly sem sombra de dúvidas um dos melhores e mais verdadeiros velejadores que tive a oportunidade de conhecer. uma pessoa fantástica que viveu a vida toda amando a verdadeira oceânica e fez o todo possível para fomentar o esporte. 😥 teve um fim muito "feio"...dizem que caiu na água com uma retrancada na cabeça e seu corpo foi encontrado alguns dias após o fatídico acidente. 🙊um dos piores acidentes, o pior talvez, seja cairmos no mar. teria sido excesso de confiança? um simplesmente a mão de deus para a sua hora e um fim de certa forma "digno" dos grandes velejadores? 😪 melhor morrer numa cama de hospital ou ser jogado para o lugar que se encontra sua vida? pois devemos lembrar que tudo nessa vida é passageiro. é um aprendizado. é que devemos sempre tentarmos fazer o nosso melhor possível. 🌎 sei que muitos poderão me criticar. mas escrevo essas breves palavras para lembramos a todos que a vida no mar trás riscos que muitos por aqui não colocam e preferem postar as "fantasias" e somente as belezas do mar...não é bem assim. 🙏 que deus lhe abençoe querido amigo tabarly. e que continue me abençoando até muitos longos anos no mar!!! ⛵️ e vamos lá que essa semana temos mais um curso e muitas lições a serem passadas e mostradas aqueles interessados!!! ⛵️ venha fazer algo que te deixe mais próximo da natureza! ✅ cursos de vela oceânica ou, muito em breve, o retorno das travessias oceânicas!!! mais informações: www.mistralis.com +5521993735923 #mistralis #felipecaire #cursodevela #travesssiaoceanica #aprenderavelejar #velejar #veleiro #ilhabela #ilhagrande #dive #velejando #rj #errejota #motogp #ride #rideordie #sailing #travel #capehorn #cabodehornos #puertowilliams #falklands #antarctica #northwestpassage #refeno #refeno2018 #noronha #abrolhos
