Not many birds to photograph in Abu Dhabi, where the heat is intense, even in winter! However, I managed to see this sort of sparrow while covering from the sun. What a beauty!

“Jeune lion au repost”. Rembrandt van Rijin, 1638-43.

North African lions were brought on ships of the Dutch East India Company to the Netherlands, where they were kept in menageries and shown at fairs. Among the various animals Rembrandt drew, lions intrigued him the most.

The common myna (Acridotheres tristis), a bird native to Asia that has adapted extremely well to urban environments. It is introduced in Dubai and its range is increasing at such a rapid rate that the IUCN declared it one of the world's most invasive species and one of only three birds in the top 100 species that pose an impact to biodiversity, agriculture and human interests.

The not common at all Black-bellied Cuckoo! (Piaya melanogaster). This is a species that is not frequently seen, and is local in forest canopy of terra firme forest in the eastern lowlands. Virtually nothing is known about its breeding biology.

The very common and brightly colored Green honeycreeper (Chlorophanes spiza), a species that occurs in the canopy of humid lowland forest. They can be seen singly or in pairs consuming fruit, although they also consume nectar and  small insects. From what I’ve seen, they particularly like wasps! .

White-browed Purpletuft (Iodopleura isabellae), is a small bird found in the canopy of the western and southern Amazon. Is not always easily encountered in the majority of its range, and its biology, like those of its congeners, remains comparatively poorly known.

@dimosb

Hanging in the canopy! In monkeys, the prehensile tail acts as a "fifth limb" that aids in support, balance, and maneuverability during feeding, foraging, travel, rest, and social behaviors. All prehensile‐tailed primates use their tail in both above‐branch and below‐branch feeding postures. Woolly monkeys use their prehensile tails extensively in locomotion. The tail secures the animal while it is climbing or hanging while feeding on delicious fruit! 😊🐒 . . #monkey #woollymonkey #newworldmonkey #mono #primate #mammals #fifthlimb #lagothrix #prehensile #colaprensil #nature #wildlife #wildlifephotography #conservation #amazonia #rainforest #chorongo #churuco #nikon #canopy #dosel #biodiversity #ecuador #natgeoyourshot
