Every monday morning... 😴⁣ ⁣ #EarthCapture by @annastelloophotography⁣ ⁣ Foxes have a unique ability to find their prey. Not only do they have exceptional hearing, but it is also thought that they could have the ability to sense the Earth’s magnetic field, thanks to a protein in their eyes called cryptochrome.⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bbcearth #nature #fox #naturelovers #redfox #greyfox #arcticfox #wildlife #wildlifephotography #earthlovers #animals #outfoxed #amazinganimals #cute

Batman's sidekick - he might be the night, but I'm the morning ☀️⁣ ⁣ #EarthCapture by @eliestories⁣ ⁣ Robins are prolific breeders, producing between three to five broods a year, with four to five eggs in each brood. Due to their constant breeding, robins have become well adept at turning any space into a nest. Some of the weirdest robin nests on record include plant pots, a pigeonhole in a desk, in the engine of a WWII plane, inside the body of a dead cat and in someone’s unmade bed while they were downstairs having breakfast 🤭⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bbcearth #birdsofinstagram #nature #robin #ornithology #naturelovers #robins #nesting #wildlife #wildlifephotography #earthlovers #animals #nest #amazinganimals

Dashing through the snow….Literally 🦌⁣ ⁣ #EarthCapture by @nicolasdory ⁣ ⁣ Made famous for pulling Santa’s sleigh, the reindeer in the Northwest Territories of Canada were a good pick to help Santa on his journey for one very good reason: they’re super fast. Reaching speeds of over 70km an hour, these reindeer should have all been named Dasher!⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bbcearth #nature #reindeer #deer #rudolph #naturelovers #christmasanimals #dashing #wildlife #wildlifephotography #earthlovers #animals #santa #amazinganimals #christmas #Inuvik #richardsisland

That's one nosy individual 👃⁣ ⁣ #EarthCapture by @mogenstrolle ⁣ ⁣ The saiga antelope has a rather distinct nose. This is used to cool them down in summer and warm up the outside air they breathe in winter. It also works well as a filter against dust found on the open plains where they roam. Listed as critically endangered, they are susceptible to habitat loss and infectious diseases but their numbers are currently on the rise.⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bbcearth #nature #saiga #naturelovers #antelope #saigaantelope #wildlife #wildlifephotography #earthlovers #animals #criticallyendangered #amazinganimals #endangered #bignose

Ain’t no clownin’ around here! 🤡⁣ ⁣ #EarthCapture by @fromairandsea ⁣ ⁣ Despite their name, these fish really know how to get down to business. Not only are they able to work their way around the toxic tentacles of an anemone to make it their home, they’re also able to change gender! All clownfish are born male and when the dominant female dies, the dominant male will change into a female. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bbcearth #nature #clownfish #naturelovers #nemo #findingnemo #wildlife #wildlifephotography #earthlovers #animals #clowningaround #amazinganimals #fish #sealife #ocean

They call me MC Egg Dumper 🤷‍♀️⁣ ⁣ #EarthCapture by @4elementphotos ⁣ ⁣ When nest options are limited during the breeding season, wood ducks engage in a behaviour known as ‘egg dumping’ where they lay their eggs in another duck’s nest. Egg dumping can see one nest grow from 15 eggs to as many as 40.😮⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #bbcearth #nature #birdsofinstagram #ornithology #woodduck #naturelovers #ducks #ducklings #wildlife #wildlifephotography #earthlovers #animals #sittingducks #amazinganimals

The Eurasian Jay… the acorn bae 👏⁣ ⁣ #EarthCapture by @amit_jain87 ⁣ ⁣ The Eurasian Jay is a shy bird that has a penchant for acorns. Collecting them in the autumn, the Jay likes to hide them in the ground so they can return to them during the winter. Unfortunately, they can’t always remember where they bury them 🤷 ….

Get ready for The Green Planet 🌿 Following the success of Seven Worlds, One Planet, we’re pleased to announce that Sir David Attenborough will present a brand new series on plants, The Green Planet. In this 5-part landmark series, Attenborough will travel to the USA, Costa Rica, northern Europe and Croatia to find new stories and a fresh understanding of how plants live their lives. With new developments in robotics, moving time-lapse, super-detail thermal cameras, deep focus ‘frame-stacking’ and ultra-high-speed cameras we can see the world beyond the power of the human eye and make visible the amazing, hidden life of the green planet.
