Gailen Mapes62,357Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  N-Q - 9 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-04-09 10:48:3515210316CC G+

Tara Meyer-Robson3,023HIGHER THOUGHT/INSPIRING CIRCLE Created by +Tara Meyer-Robson  (1st Edition)This is my first circle share, so I wanted to make it a great one! Please SHARE and LIKE to be added to version 2! I’ve realized how important it is to surround yourself with people that inspire you, that allow you to dream, that kick you in the behind on days when you are ready to give up, and who are always willing to look for the higher meaning in the lessons of life. In this group, you will find those that will do all of the above!This is a circle of truly amazing, intelligent, and spiritual individuals. Most people are either personal friends or others that I've been interacting with here in the few months I have been on G+ and I’ve connected with many of these people on other networks, too.  All people here are very active on Google+ and worth adding to your circles. They come from all over the world and have many different backgrounds: some of them are authors, writers, bloggers, and creatives; all are inspiring people who love to connect to a higher frequency. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++If you’d like to be added to my circles, it’s very easy: you can certainly keep engaging with my posts, or keep sharing great content of your own or others.To connect with me, here are the other places you will find me: My Website: www.TaraMeyerRobson.comOn here, you can sign up to get a free healing meditation and to get the best I have to offer on how to shift your life and heal your body by understanding the underlying cause. That’s my passion and what I do best, so please feel free to connect with me there. Twitter: http://twitter.com/tarameyerrobsonFacebook: http://facebook.com/tarameyerrobsonLinkedIn:  http://www.linkedin.com/in/tarameyerrobsonFor Authors: http://HowtoBeaBestsellingAuthor.comWhen my book first came out, I really struggled trying to get sales. Desperate to find an answer, I studied what other bestselling authors were doing to drive their books up the bestseller lists, and I put together a formula that I thought might work. It did, and it cost me almost nothing to do. After helping other authors do the same, I packaged the whole thing up so I could share the information with as many authors as possible. For Affiliates/Writers/Bloggers: If you are interested in earning 75% on my products, I am on www.clickbank.com  - here’s my Vendor Spotlight: https://theflow6.accounts.clickbank.com/spotlightProfile.htm?f=spot&v=theflow6. Right now, affiliates are making about $62 a sale on my Bestseller in 1 Day! Program. I offer a ton of Affiliate Tools, such as approved Google ads that have converted for me, a list of Google keywords, sidebar ads, and more.  If you are a writer or a blogger, this is a great opportunity for you to have a high-quality product to promote and monetize your blog.

Gene Bowker66,106  #Alphabetcircles  - Gene's Active Photographers on G+ *Part One: First Name A-CMeet almost 400 ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between A and C.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+2. We circle each other3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notNot in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.Feel free to reshare with your friends if you want, but there are NO requirements to be in this circle except for the criteria above.I'm slowly going through the rest of the Alphabet and as I complete each section I'll be sharing them in this series.  If you follow along you can easily add 1000+ photographers to your stream too.p.s. don't forget tomorrow is  #transporttuesday   Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images 2014-03-11 00:18:29394752594CC G+

If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Feburary 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes2014-03-09 11:14:071549317CC G+

An impala-oxpecker coalition?

Oxpecker/mammal interactions are the subject of some debate. They were originally thought to be an example of mutualism, but recent evidence suggests that oxpeckers may be parasites instead. Oxpeckers do eat ticks, but often the ticks have already fed on the ungulate host and no statistically significant link has been shown between oxpecker presence and reduced ectoparasite load. Oxpeckers have been observed to open new wounds and enhance existing ones in order to drink the blood of their perches (Wikipedia)

Giraffes emerging from the sand dunes

Giraffes were introduced into the Kgalagadi.Transfrontier Park, an arid, semi-desert area, a few years ago. Surprisingly, they seem to thrive quite well here, disappearing into the sand dunes over night and reappearing to forage on the few trees in the dry river bed during daytime. Adaptation is the magic word here. Even though their geographical location doesn't seem to be a giraffe paradise, they seem to find enough food to not only survive but to look rather healthy.
Perhaps you're also in a situation that seems rather problematic. Don't despair: Adapting to this situation in an ingenious way might just make you stronger :)

On the go

When active, wild dogs are usually on the go in a fast trot (all 4 feet in the air in this image), looking for prey and using the roads for easier progress.The African wild dog is an endangered species due to habitat loss and poaching. It uses very large territories (so can persist only in large wildlife protected areas), and it is strongly affected by competition with larger carnivores that rely on the same prey base, particularly the lion and the spotted hyena. Like most members of the dog family, it is a cursorial hunter, meaning it pursues its prey in a long, open chase. These chases may occur at great speeds of up to 66 km/hr. Nearly 80% of all wild dog hunts end in a kill; for comparison, the success rate of lions, often viewed as ultimate predators, is only 30% (information gleaned from Wikipedia).

Teamwork
You can learn a lot about teamwork just by watching a cheetah coalition. These two brothers started off by jumping on to a termite mound together. This enabled them to see beyond the high grass and scan the area for potential prey, four eyes spotting more than just two (Kruger National Park, South Africa).

Envy
Can you see the envy in the eyes of the crouching lion and the expression of a proud owner in the face of the standing lion?  The standing one had (unfortunately!) found a soft-drink can and was transforming it into a somewhat flatter shape. This piece of metal was something new to these young lions and since there was only one of it, the interest in it grew even more. It reminded me of scenes at a sale with a limited number of discounted objects.

In the reeds

Patience is a virtue that animals and birds demonstrate very often. This Malachite kingfisher was patiently waiting for breakfast to swim along, concentrating on the water and not moving.

Roadblock

I encountered this roadblock on my last morning in Kruger: Four healthy looking young lions. Lion numbers have dropped alarmingly over the last few decades and are continuing to drop even further. Trophy hunting and lion bones for "medicine" are taking their toll. How much longer will we be able to have sightings like these in the wild? For

For me it's always difficult to leave the Kruger National Park even though it poses a bigger challenge for wildlife photography than most other wildlife destinations. This year, I went in summer, when it's hot, the grass is high and the bushes are dense. This leopard was only one of several wonderful sightings on my on my way out, it almost seemed as if the animals were bidding me farewell.

Competition at the waterhole

It's not easy for a jackal to catch a drinking dove or sandgrouse for breakfast at the waterhole. If competitors come along, it only complicates matters further, causing tempers to flare (Kgalagadi).

As the sun sets in Kielie-Krankie (Kgalagadi), the barking geckos appear and fill the air with their characteristic sound. This is also the signal to get out the beer and meat for the braai.

The AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER'S CIRCLE Is Back –– Announcement Post –– READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE ASKING FOR INCLUSION

Last week I promoted new talent in my Upcoming Stars Circle and now it's time to promote good amateur photographers no matter how many (or few) followers they have. So if you consider yourself an amateur photographer, then this circle is for you (and your friends here on Google+).

For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle.

Now it's your turn to join the action. But only if you are an amateurphotogr... more »

I would also hide underneath a log if I were a pangolin (scaly anteater).
According to Wikipedia, pangolins are hunted and eaten in many parts of Africa, and are one of the more popular types of bush meat. They are also in great demand in China because their meat is considered a delicacy and some Chinese believe pangolin scales have medicinal qualities. In the past decade there have been numerous seizures of illegally trafficked pangolin and pangolin meat in Asia. In one such incident in 2013, 10,000 kilograms of pangolin meat was seized from a Chinese vessel that ran aground in the Philippines.
No wonder pangolins have become a rare sighting in the wild! It was my first sighting of one in Kruger.

It was very hot and this lion was irritated by flies and insects. So he violently shook his head to get rid of these, an astounding action, considering that he had most definitely been gorging himself to capacity and could hardly move, panting in the heat.

The Goliath heron on the left had stood patiently waiting for almost 2 hrs before he caught a big fish. He had two teenage youngsters to feed in a nest close-by. So of course he was not at all delighted when this fish eagle swooped down in an attempt to scavenge the fish for himself. Tempers flared and the fish eagle was soon joined by a second fish eagle. The Goliath heron stood his ground (the fish can be seen close to his feet) but each time he tried to retrieve the fish, the spectacle was repeated.
I'm back from an extended and wonderful stay in the bush. I'm contemplating taking a small group of people with me to the Kruger National Park (South Africa) around early September next year. The stay would include a 3-day walking trail (in the accompaniment of 2 armed rangers). Particularly the walking trails in untouched areas are a unique experience. Anyone interested in joining me, just let... more »

ABENTEUER NAMIBIA

… Abenteuer deshalb, weil wir in einer kleinen Gruppe eine breite Palette an verschiedenen Erlebnissen in dem dünn besiedelten Namibia ausloten wollen. Auf diese vielseitige Reise werden maximal 6 Teilnehmer mitgenommen! Mit zwei Reiseleiterinnen werden wir in zwei klimatisierten Geländefahrzeugen unterwegs sein, übernachtet wird in Zelten auf den Fahrzeugen, um die unberührte Natur mit allen Sinnen wahrnehmen zu können. Wir gönnen uns unterwegs aber auch mal eine Hotel- und Lodge-Unterkunft :))
Mehr Info kann auf meinem Blog gefunden werden.

Wie kamen +Christa Niederer und ich dazu?
Nun ja, ganz einfach, wir beide werden öfters gefragt ob wir jemanden mitnehmen würden. So haben wir mal uns mal zusammengesetzt und da entstand diese Reise :)
