Big cats are under threat and they are facing extinction. If we, the human race, do not wake up soon and realise the negative impact we are having on our planet then I fear that many wonderful species of wildlife will be lost forever. I simply can not fathom a world without wildlife, cheetahs, lions, elephants, tigers, gorillas... the list is endless. I do not want to live in a world without wildlife, where the only connection we have to it is old photographs and videos. @ccfcheetah are doing an incredible job for cheetahs not only in Namibia but they are raising awareness around the world. There are great people out there fighting for the survival of the animal kingdom, and I truly hope we succeed!
Here is the other American Pine Marten my son and I saw while up in #algonquin !! I was up on a pile of snow with the afternoon sun at my back!! Right time right place...as the Marten climbed down the tree!! So amazing!! Love these awesome animals...part of the Mustelidae family along with Weasels, Otters, Minks and the elusive Wolverine!!
Not quite a calf, but also not an adult bison... Teenage bison? Found this one all by himself taking shelter from the snowfall under a tree. Heavily cropped shot using a 600mm lens. Never a good idea to get too close to these animals.
