After the last set has been worn out solitary elephants will usually die of starvation whereas herd elephants will help feed starving members of their group.  Subject: African…

Water Monitor and Heron Singapore  Mangroves provide vital habitat for a wide diversity of species. Sadly not many mangroves are left. So I'm lucky to have a small patch on my doorstep and enjoy photographing the animals there.  #timplowdenphotography #naturephotography #animallovers #naturephotos #birds #wildlife #wildlifephotography #mangrove
