I had been getting kind of sad about the bluebell season coming to an end, but a walk in the woods today showed me that there are still plenty of woodland flowers to appreciate. 🌸 Lots of stitchwort, red campion, and PLENTY of forget-me-nots are making our woodlands look splendid, and helping out our pollinators in the process. 🐝🦋🦟⁣ ⁣ It just served as a reminder that there is always something to appreciate and look forward to. Still, I’m already excited for next years bluebell season, it really is one of the most special events in nature’s calendar, and I’m so grateful I got to experience a little bit of it this year. 🌷💐⁣ -⁣ -⁣ -⁣ #detailphoto #landscape_love #landscapephotography #visitnorfolk #flowerphotos #bluebells #natureswonders #englishbluebells #mentalwellbeing #ig_england #nature_obsession #englishnature #landscape_capture #natureshots #ecologist #bluebellseason #earthcaptures #woodlandflowers #englishcountryside #nikond500 #d500 #englandtravel #england_insta #nikond500photography #springtime🌸 #reconnectwithnature #bluebell #igengland #englishwildlife #igersengland

Inspired a lot: A spectrum of Hindu temple styles continued to develop from the 5th to the 9th century over the Chalukya era rule as evidenced in Aihole, Badami and Pattadakal, and then with the Pallava era as witnessed at Mamallapuram and other monuments. Thereafter, between 850 and 1280 CE, Cholas emerged as the dominant dynasty. The early Chola period saw a greater emphasis on securing their geopolitical boundaries and less emphasis on architecture. In the 10th century, within the Chola empire emerged features such as the multifaceted columns with projecting square capitals. This, states George Michell, signaled the start of the new Chola style. This South Indian style is most fully realized both in scale and detail in the Brihadeshvara temple built between 1003 and 1010 by the Chola king Rajaraja. #bigtemple #tanjore #architecture #wonder #world #famousarchitecture #tamil #incredible #incredibleindia #instagram #sunsets #photooftheday #incredibleindiaofficial #_coi #indianphotos #earthcaptures #earthpix #bbctravel #bbctravelindia #travelling #temple #photographers_of_india #history

Adenium swazicum. My plants are still flowering prolifically and it’s a little unusual coming into winter.

I don’t believe that God put us on this Earth to be ordinary.

Curruca cabecinegra (Sylvia melanocephala) ... Pero que ganas tenía de pillar a éste pequeñajo cómo dios manda 😅 y es que aunque por suerte es muy común, también es muy común verlo emboscado entre las ramas y hojas de arbustos y arboles haciendo más difícil sacar una foto limpia y enfocada. Su cabeza oscura (en los machos) que se extiende por debajo del ojo y contrasta intensamente con la garganta blanquecina y el llamativo anillo ocular rojo constituyen los principales rasgos distintivos de esta vistosa curruca. 🙌🏽❤ La especie se encuentra en expansión, quizá por estar beneficiándose del abandono del campo y de la invasión del matorral. 🥰🥰 . . . But I wanted to catch this little boy how God commands 😅 and it is that luckily it is very common, it is also very common to see him ambushed among the branches and leaves of shrubs and trees, making it more difficult to take a clean and focused photo. Its dark head that extends below the eye and contrasts sharply with the whitish throat and the striking red eye ring constitute the main distinctive features of this showy warbler. The species is expanding, perhaps because it is benefiting from the abandonment of the field and the invasion of the scrub. 🥰🥰 . . . . . #curruca #tufotonatgeo #shots_of_animals #naturephotography #fotosdenaturaleza #nature #naturephoto #majestic_wildlife #feature_wildlife #wildlifeconservation #animalfanatics #natureinfocus #earthcaptures #granadacf #animal #animalsofinstagram #animal_captures

The beautiful Basile. We caught this female leopard in the middle of a fight with the Kelly Dam female, not only because of territory boundaries, but also Basile’s cubs were not far away. Basile, the much larger of the two quickly put her in her place. #leopardhills #sabisands #leopard #canon #canonrsa #wildlifephotography #earthcaptures #africanamazing #africanimals #natureinfocus #photooftheday #marvelous_animals #thisissouthafrica

A Male great spotted woodpecker feeding his children during the sunset last night. Absolutely thrilled to have found this nest. I heard unusual ‘tweeting’ coming from the tree and after a good look around I saw the perfectly drilled hole.
