Photo by @TimLaman. An American Crocodile basks in the sun on a riverbank, while butterflies flutter near its eyes. The butterflies were actually landing on the crocodile and sucking up those crocodile tears. Shot on my recent scouting trip to Costa Rica with fellow @NatGeo photographer @SteveWinterPhoto, where we’ve been checking out locations for our future Wildlife Photo Masterclass trips. Planning is still in the early stages, but drop an email to office@timlaman.com if you are interested in possibly joining us on a workshop, and we’ll keep you posted as plans develop. Thanks to our hosts at the appropriately named (@crocodilebay), our future home base in Costa Rica! .

Photo by @TimLaman. Two young squirrel monkeys in the rain forest in Costa Rica. These youngsters were super playful and fun to watch. To photograph them, I balanced my telephoto on a monopod, and used a little flash fill to light the shadows. I’m just back from five days in Costa Rica with fellow @NatGeo photographer @SteveWinterPhoto, where we’ve been scouting locations for our future Wildlife Photo Masterclass trips. Planning is still in the early stages, but drop an email to office@timlaman.com if you are interested in possibly joining us on a workshop, and we’ll keep you posted as plans develop. Huge thanks to @BryceJohnson520 and all the great folks at (@crocodilebay), our future home base in Costa Rica! @gitzoinspires

Wildlife and nature photography – its all about the lighting, the background, the composition…. all the little details that make an image stand out.

Photo by @TimLaman. I’m just back from five amazing days photographing in Costa Rica’s Osa Peninsula with @SteveWinterPhoto. So much wildlife there! I shot this Scarlet Macaw feeding on seeds of the beach almond tree, just along the roadside. Fellow NatGeo photographer Steve Winter and I were scouting for our future Wildlife Photo Masterclass trips. Planning is still in early stages, but drop an email to office@timlaman.com if you are interested, and we’ll keep you posted as plans develop.

How to photograph wild orangutans? Follow them through the forest all day carrying your gear, and look for those moments when you have a clear view. Set up quickly and try to shoot through the sweat-covered viewfinder. Thanks @RussLaman for the photos as I followed the female Bornean Orangutan Walimah and her baby through the forest in earlier this month. Please follow and support @saveGPorangutans as we work with to protect , one of the safe haven’s for the critically endangered Bornean Orangutans. And stay tuned to @TimLaman for more new orangutan images from GP. . @GitzoInspires

Photo by @TimLaman. Today is World Orangutan day and I have an exciting surprise for you from Gunung Palung National Park, where I have just come from. The female orangutan Walimah, (who tragically lost her first baby in 2015), has given birth to a new baby, and here is one of my first shots of her. She is healthy and doing well… so important as every wild orangutan is precious in this era of habitat loss and orangutan population decline. I look forward to following the development of this baby over the coming years and sharing her story. Please follow and support @saveGPorangutans as we work with to protect , one of the safe haven’s for the critically endangered Bornean Orangutans. @gitzoinspires

Photo by @TimLaman. Gunung Palung National Park in West Kalimantan harbors some of the very best remaining true lowland forest in the whole island of Borneo. The towering dipterocarp trees have never been logged in the core of the park, and the forest harbors the full complement of Borneo’s amazing biodiversity. @savegporangutans

Photo by @TimLaman. I’m excited to be back at one of my favorite places in the world, Gunung Palung National Park in West Kalimantan on the Island of Borneo. Among other things, I’ll be documenting the orangutan Walimah who just had her second baby. This is especially meaningful because Walimah tragically lost her first baby (pictured here) in 2015 in what we believe was a case of infanticide. Now she has a second chance and her new baby is doing well. Stay tuned for more, and follow @savegporangutans to learn about how to help conserve the orangutans and all the biodiversity of . @savegporangutans

I work with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to document the Birds-of-Paradise and they have created a wonderful film on stunning Great Philippine Eagle. This award winning film, Bird of Prey, is available for purchase/rent on Amazon, iTunes and Vimeo and sales from the film will benefit bird conservation. It is a win-win! Visit: www.birdofprey.com to purchase and support the Lab.

Photo by @TimLaman. Underwater photography…. I’ve been fascinated by it for decades. To create strong images, the diving part has to be second nature. You have to be able to think about lighting, composition, behavior of your subject, and myriad other things that go into capturing a great image, while limited by your air supply and the time and safety constraints that go with working underwater. But there are amazing advantages as well, like the ability to easily move in three dimensions around your subject and hover in space… oh to be able to do that in the rain forest! One of the masters of the medium is my friend and colleague Zafer Kizilkaya (@kizilkaya_zafer) who you see here in Raja Ampat this week, where we have been planning an Underwater Photography workshop together for next year with . If you are interested, drop an email to office@timlaman.com, and we will keep you informed as plans develop. We can always use more passionate photographers sharing images of our threatened oceans. .

Photo by @TimLaman. Ribbon Sweetlips in formation. These nocturnal feeders hang out on the reef during the day, and when there is some current, they like to hang together. This reef, just off a village in Raja Ampat, is teeming with fish, because for the last three years, villagers have stopped fishing there in return for income from visiting divers. It is amazing how fast fish stocks can recover when given a chance.

Photo by @TimLaman. A giant moray and a school of golden sweepers share space on a crowded reef in Raja Ampat. I can’t help wonder what the moray is thinking….
