I took this photo on a beach in Maine while I was in High School. I was in Maine visiting colleges.
Beetle on plant stems at the Guadalupe Mountains National Park in Texas, USA.
Please comment if you know what type of beetle this is. Help identify birds, insects, plants… in other photos of mine.
This is a photo (by my father) of my early experience with vanlife. My family took this VW Van in Kenya when I was a kid. We only spent a couple weeks in Kenya before living in Nigeria for a school year.
I remember at one point getting stuck in a dried out riverbed in a game park after having passed a small herd of elephants just a short while before. We had to get out and push the van free and watch it zoom forward to safe ground while I thought about the elephants getting curios and deciding to see what the fuss was about. It was quite fun once I was back in the van.
Common sandpipers on the beach in Tanjung Piai National Park – the Southernmost Point in Continental Asia (near Johor Bahru, Malaysia and Singapore).
The Birds look like they are the “common sandpiper” to me but please comment if you have an accurate identification.
The water really is that color blue. See more photos of my visit to the Kuang Si Waterfalls in Laos.
