Gailen Mapes71,828Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera S - 21 of 31Note: 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-21 11:25:36119001

Wayne Marinovich26,506Wildlife Photographers CircleWell, it has been over a year since I last shared my wildlife photographers circle. I have recently been through it, and dropped some folks who no longer seems to be posting. Whilst going though all the people, I realise just how many friends I have made in this online world. I look forward to meeting more of you in the flesh someday.Please feel free to share this with your followers (that is how this works after all). If you are not on here and are a keen amateur, semi-pro or seasoned pro, let me know and I will add you.  2014-05-23 08:07:52474938
Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016

Welcoming the newest members of my family, two adorable Maine Coons kittens, Kanzi (L) and Kosey (R). It was hard to get a decent pic of these guys since they rarely stay still... unless they're sleeping.

"Way Up High" 
One of my fav sightings in the Masai Mara. Spotted this leopard relaxing near the top of a tree and looking down on us. Had to use a 2x converter on the 300mm to try to get a decent shot. Had the lens and camera positioned on the back of one of the seats in the jeep and tilted upwards.

The presence of the trees was very strong...The big oaks stood so many, so massive in their other life, in their deep, rooted silence: the awe of them came on me, the religion.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin

The presence of the trees was very strong...The big oaks stood so many, so massive in their other life, in their deep, rooted silence: the awe of them came on me, the religion.” ~ Ursula K. Le Guin

Handsome gemsbok
Etosha, Namibia
Did you know?... from the age of around 5-6, male gemsboks establish territories. These territories are around 25 square kilometres and may be defended for up to three years. During this time, the male rounds up herds of females and young gemsbok into his territory to gain sole mating rights with the females.

Post bath playfulness.
This little guy was so full of himself after his fun in the waterhole.

Let's hope this little guy lives a long life. Did you know that every fifteen minutes another elephant is poached for it's ivory? Yes, we lose another ele every 15 minutes. The illegally gotten "white gold" helps fund terrorist groups. It is a dire time for our eles and if drastic measures aren't taken soon, they will be extinct in the wild in another 10 years.

"Solitude"
A lone oryx among the dunes
Sossusvlei, Namibia

According to IUCN, the southern African oryx is listed as a species of least concern but in East Africa it is listed as near threatened. Populations trends are declining apart from in a few protected areas. It had already declined heavily around the margins of its range. Threats from hunting and overgrazing are continuing and it is predicted that the overall level of decline will reach at least 25% over the last 3 generations.

R.I.P. Kealy "Munsters" "Love Bug" Schepis
April 10, 2001 - May 21, 2014

How do you say goodbye to your best friend? I don't know how to. After a two and a half year battle with a chronic illness, Kealy's health deteriorated over the last few weeks. He was a valiant warrior and fought like hell to beat this thing but it eventually took its toll on him. 
The vet came over yesterday afternoon to help him cross over to the Rainbow Bridge where he will be healthy and strong again, and wait for me to join him.  He was brave until the very end. I held him in my arms as the vet helped him cross over and he took his last breath.
 I can't believe he is gone. A huge hole is in my heart. I want to see him jump up on the counter and aggravate me for his treats. He was such a wonderful companion, by my side for 13 years, always with unconditional love - acting more like a dog than a cat - and brought joy wherever the road took us. A master manipulator when it came to treats, he would look at me with those big green eyes, working me hard to get his way. 
He was such a character. This house feels so empty without him. I'm a total basket case. My heart is breaking .Oh, why do the good have to die so young?
I will always love you, Kealy, my little love bug. ___

He's still holding his own against the liver disease that he's been sick with for the last 20 months. For what he's been through... the endless trips to the vet, syringe feeding, all the meds, he's still got a great personality. Our already close bond has strengthened.  He's having more good days sprinkled with a few bad days here and there. He's not regained all his weight and is still thin for a Maine Coon but he seems to be doing OK... for now. :-)

A very curious Grevy's zebra stallion 
Shaba National Reserve, Kenya

Grevy’s zebra is classified as Endangered (EN) on the IUCN Red List and listed on Appendix I of CITES.

Numbers of Grevy’s zebra underwent a dramatic decline in the 1970s when the coat became prized on the international fashion circuit. In the 1980s there were 15,000 Grevy’s zebra, with this numbering crashing to around 2,500 today, representing an 83 percent decline in the global population over the last three decades. Commercial poaching for skins has since declined due to effective protection measures put in place by Kenya and the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).

However, in some areas, Grevy’s zebra is still hunted for subsistence meat and some ethnic groups use their fat for medicinal purposes, such as treating tuberculosis. Habitat loss presents a major threat to the long-term survival of the species as grasslands and water sources have significantly declined due to unplanned grazing by livestock. In addition, there has been a significant, very recent decline in the species in northern Kenya due to disease and drought.

“Does the giraffe know what he's for? Or care? Or even think about his place in things? A giraffe has a black tongue twenty-seven inches long and no vocal cords. A giraffe has nothing to say. He just goes on giraffing.” ~ Robert Fulghum

Notice the tongue along with the leaves. Gotta love the giraffe.

“The assumption that animals are without rights, and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance, is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality.” ~ Arthur Schopenhauer

But perhaps the most important lesson I learned is that there are no walls between humans and the elephants except those that we put up ourselves, and that until we allow not only elephants, but all living creatures their place in the sun, we can never be whole ourselves.

Happy Birthday to both my boys this month. Nels turned 5 on the 1st and Josh turns 7 today. Wonderful companions and my right and left arms.  (Taken this morning on the trail w/ my iPhone.) 
Apologize for not being on G+ as much anymore but I still cannot stand the new format. It's too all over the place for my taste.

RHINO HORN IS NOT MEDICINE
Just came home to heartbreaking news. 294 rhinos killed so far this year...in only 130 days. More devastating news...even though they were dehorned, two pregnant white rhino cows were poached in the Gravelotte area of South Africa. The poachers are stopping at nothing to kill these gentle giants.  Proof again that dehorning and legalizing the sale of rhino horn is not the answer!

Gosh, sis, I hope I have tusks just like yours when I'm your age.

Did you know?...  The tusks present at birth are only milk teeth which fall out after around one year of age (approximately 5 cm long). The permanent tusks begin to protrude beyond the lips of an elephant at around 2-3 years of age, and will continue to grow  throughout its life. The growth rate of tusks is at approximately 15-18 centimeters (6-7 inches) per year.
About one quarter of the tusk is hidden within the socket. Thus, the typical question of why people can not just cut off the elephant's tusks to ward off poachers is answered. There is still a large amount of ivory that is attached inside the head and attached to the skull.

Elephants are living treasures. Nature's gardeners. Nature's great teachers. Tragically some people don't give a damn. They prefer the dead treasure to the living one. The ivory. We must challenge this so-called 'trade' with all our might and shame on those who would condone it. ~ Virginia McKenna OBE Founder & Trustee: Born Free Foundation
