Hello from Estonia! My name is Kaur Nellis and my passion for photography lies in capturing the essence of nature. For now I have spent half a decade photographing mostly wildlife and landscapes. I have garnered many awards in Estonian nature photography competitions and also showcased my work on a global stage. While my heart beats for nature photography, my camera also immortalizes the vivid spectrum of human emotions, the vibrant scale of events, and the artistic challenges of commissioned projects.

One enchanting spring morning, I ventured out with a mission: to capture the sunrise. I reached my chosen vantage point, releasing my drone into the sky to pick out the perfect composition. Everything was right – the drone was in the air, composition was set – when suddenly, as if summoned by magic, a gentle wisp of fog materialized from thin air. This unexpected phenomenon elevated the image, casting a resplendent golden light and infusing it with a radiance.

I had just finished my little photo trip to the Silma Nature Reserve, a curious European pied flycatcher (Ficedula hypoleuca) graced me with its presence. Fearlessly inquisitive, it ventured near to check the visitor beside its possession. Sitting upon a tree of unusually wonderful branches, this gallant little flier transformed the moment into something extraordinary. These very branches, bizarre and captivating, weave an unique charm that makes this photograph special in my eyes.


As spring began, I really wanted to photograph badgers. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any of them in the woods nearby, which made me disheartened, especially seeing stunning badger photos from other nature photographers. Thankfully, my father knew of a badger den in a nearby forest. After careful planning and waiting, I spotted this black and white animal disappearing into its burrow. Anxious if it would return, I patiently waited. Finally, after about half an hour, a cautious badger appeared, sniffing the air and It came close enough for me to capture this shot.

One morning, when I woke up, my family urged me, "Quick, look out the window!" Initially confused by morning's haze, I complied. What my eyes saw left me astounded—enchanting clouds covered the sky. Words struggle to convey the spectacle; it was as though billowy, velvety sheets had been suspended across the heavens. Swiftly, I took my camera and ran outside, determined to capture this unique moment. Without hesitation, I can say that this image ranks among my finest captures.


One morning, as I set out to capture roe deers, an unexpected surprise revealed itself—a cluster of mushrooms. I had only a telephoto lens, but I embraced the challenge, determined to capture the beauty of mushrooms. To my delight, the outcome surpassed all expectations. I really like this photo because of its vibrant hues and the captivating pre-sunrise ambiance it captures.

My dream was to capture the essence of an Ural owl in a portrait. Months we searched for ural owl with my dad. Then, fate intervened during a car ride to a friend's home—there, beside the road, was a desired Ural owl. We pulled over and I took my camera out. Slowly, we turned the car around and gently approached the owl. Astonishingly undisturbed, the owl granted me the privilege of photographing it for a span of 5 to 10 minutes. This is one of my most emotional and best moments in my photography career.


In late August, my family and I embarked on a trip to the remote island of Osmussaar. This island, once teeming with human activity, has now been reclaimed by nature, with only seasonal tourists as its visitors. Despite its near-deserted human presence, Osmussaar has diverse bird fauna. As we disembarked from the ship, we were greeted by an array of feathered inhabitants. I took my camera, eager to capture these beautiful birds in their natural habitat. Among them, the common ringed plovers (Charadrius hiaticula) proved to be the most brave, venturing close enough for me to enjoy nearly half an hour in their company. This encounter remains as a cherished memory.


I became interested in photography about a year ago when I discovered an old camera in my house. Since then, wherever I go, I take my camera with me. I usually capture photos of landscapes, wildlife, and street scenes.


You can find more of my photos on my Instagram account:



There are eight humpback whales in the estuary of the St. Lawrence River that return there every year. In the photo, you can see the tail of one of them. When a humpback whale emerges from the water, it can hold its breath for up to an hour, but usually, it surfaces again after 4-7 minutes.

I took this shot of the St. Lawrence River because I was amazed by the rapids. They surround a small piece of land that serves as a shelter for various kinds of birds. One of those birds is visible in the center of the picture. The rapids can be found in Montreal, which is visible in the background.


I found this poor, badly wounded porcupine on the road while it was looking for water. Judging by the fact that it doesn't have spikes, it definitely had to fight for its life with another animal. Many people think that porcupines shoot their spikes, but in reality, they back up and run into their prey.

The Saguenay Fjord is the southernmost fjord in the Americas, and it's incredibly picturesque. Saltwater makes up 93% of the water volume within the fjord. Unfortunately, my camera sensor was dusty, which is why there are these small dots on the photo that spoil the picture.


This is Montmorency Falls, located near Quebec. Despite its brown appearance, the water is actually very pure. Generally, rivers, lakes and springs in Canada have naturally pure water, making it safe to drink. Montmorency Falls is considered the second most beautiful waterfall in Canada.

This photo was taken early in the morning, when the sun was just rising and, in combination with the fog, it created a beautiful effect in the magical forest.


Seagulls were captured by my camera during a sea outflow, searching for food in the sand. Unfortunately, a portion of the seagulls became urbanized and started scavenging for food in dumpsters, which leads to them ingesting inappropriate items such as plastics. This is why feeding birds in places where it is unnecessary can hinder their ability to find food independently.

In Canada, there are vast expanses of nature, including lakes, forests, rivers, and much more. In this picture, you can see a river flowing through the valley in the Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie National Park. This is just one of the many amazing national parks in Canada, each offering a variety of animal species and hiking trails.

The European bison, the largest land animal in Europe, can weigh up to 900 kilograms in its biggest males. While they are generally very peaceful animals, when provoked, it’s better to keep your distance. They inhabit a mosaic of forests and meadows. The female typically gives birth to a single calf, with twins being exceptionally rare, as only a few cases have been documented. At the start of the 20th century, this species was on the verge of extinction, with only 54 individuals remaining, none of them in the wild. Out of these, only 12 were capable of breeding, and the entire present-day population descends from them. Today, the global count of European bison stands at 11,000, including a substantial 8,000 in their natural habitats. The largest population is situated within the Białowieża Primeval Forest, which spans the border between Poland and Belarus. Currently, European bison are often utilized in rewilding projects across countries like the Netherlands, Bulgaria, Romania, and even England, showcasing an exemplar of our capacity to protect nature.

Moose are very special creatures. They are the largest representative of the deer family. This is the only large mammal that can live in swamps because they have very long and slender legs. In winter they feed on pine shoots and bark. Like other male deer they have antlers, not horns; in contrast, European bison and cows have horns. It is a species of the northern regions, with the majority of its population residing in Canada and Scandinavia.

In this photo you can see the reflection in the water of an alder forest. I really like to use reflections in my photography. Alder forests thrive in environments with a consistent water supply throughout the year, which enables alder trees to flourish while inhibiting the growth of other tree species. There is simply too much water for them. Unfortunately, due to climate change some regions experience a complete lack of water for part of the year. This is worrying because it's an important place for keeping water in the forest.

Although I haven’t really been interested in photography before, while travelling in Kenya this summer, I decided to take my dads old camera and capture some of the animals and landscapes I encountered along the way. All of these pictures were taken over the last 2 weeks, with main regions including Masai Mara, Lake Naivsha and Lake Nakuru as well as the surroundings of Nairobi.

This picture captures a wild Masai giraffe, a species native to East Africa, crossing the road in Masai Mara to join its herd, which was feeding on the other side of the path. The Masai giraffe is easily distinguishable from other species due to its darker patches shaped like jagged-edged, dark brown oak leaves. These patches are set against a creamy-brown background that extends down their lower legs. Notably, the Masai giraffe holds the title for the largest body among giraffe species, making it the tallest land animal on Earth.


Adding to its allure, giraffes have a remarkable sleep pattern, requiring only 5 to 30 minutes of sleep per day. This is one of the shortest sleep requirements among mammals. Unfortunately, the decreasing population of Masai giraffes in the wild is a cause for concern, with just over 45,400 individuals remaining.

This picture captures a dominant male in tall grass, overseeing its pride which was resting. Interestingly, each pride consists of only a few dominant males which overlook the females, which means that this particular male lion has established its superiority over other lions in this territory. This picture was taken only a few minutes after I managed to capture 3 male lions, alone, without females, only a few hundred meters away. As these males were together and in the same region, we may infer that they are the lions that were expelled from the pride, potentially becoming nomads for life.


This image portrays a male lion resting beneath bushes in the Masai Mara. There were actually 3 male lions resting together, however I only captured one as the rest were laying behind him. These males were likely once part of the nearby pride I captured earlier, but were expelled by the reigning dominant lion, captured in the picture before. These coalitions usually consist of related individuals who grew up together. Nomadic male lions face a challenging life, seeking food and avoiding territorial pride males. However, they find companionship in each other. Adolescent males form these coalitions after being outed from their natal pride, bonding through shared hardships. As they grow, their focus shifts from survival to gaining territory. The larger the coalition, the better their chance of displacing resident males. Sometimes, conflict arises, with solitary rivals being isolated and surrounded. If successful, nomadic males become new resident males, altering the pride's dynamics.

The river in this photo is the Mara River, which flows through the Masai Mara region. The name of the region originates from the local tribe that resides there, the Masais, as well as the river itself. This river is a vital crossing point for animals undertaking the migratory journey from Tanzania's Serengeti National Park to Kenya's Masai Mara, guided by the shifting patterns of food and environment. The Mara River also serves as a habitat for various animals, including hippopotamuses and crocodiles. If you look closely on the meander in this picture, on the right, you may spot a crocodile with its mouth open. Interestingly, due to their relatively sedentary lifestyle, crocodiles have an impressive lifespan, often reaching up to 100 years, making them one of the longest-living animals within the savannah ecosystem.

Captured near Lake Naivasha in the Crescent Island Sanctuary, this photograph features an exceptionally rare zebra, just two months old, exhibiting partial albinism—a phenomenon often referred to as a golden zebra. This distinctive and captivating appearance arises from a genetic mutation influencing melanin production, the pigment responsible for an animal's coloration. These zebras with partial albinism are incredibly scarce. While sporadic sightings have been reported in the wild, confirmation of their existence has been primarily established in captivity. Presently, only one individual is known to be in captivity.


In this picture, you can see a large pride of lions relaxing under the cool shade of the bushes in the Masai Mara. Two lionesses are making direct eye contact with the camera. Even though I couldn't spot the dominant male lion, which is usually fewer in number compared to the females, it must have been near the rest as each pride has male lions responsible for protecting females, cubs, and the territory.


This picture captures a female spotted hyena laying on the side of the road in Masai Mara, Kenya. Likely moments before or after giving birth, judging from the size of her abdomen and the fact that she was captured alone, while hyenas usually travel in groups between 6 to even over 100 members. If she was just before giving birth, she could expect to bring 1-3 cubs into this world. This species of hyena is also known as a laughing hyena as it makes “laughter” vocalization - high-pitched series of short giggle like sounds, which, rather than being associated with hyenas having a good time, are generally made when they are threatened or under attack. As scavengers of the savannah, they clear away the remnants left by apex predators like lions, cheetahs, and leopards. This is vital to preventing the accumulation of decaying carcasses on the grasslands, preventing the spread of bacteria and pathogens, especially during events such as the Great Migration when thousands of animals drop dead in the savannah.


This picture captures a leopard on an acacia tree, overlooking the Masai Mara savannah. If you look close, on the right in the crown of the tree, you may spot an antelope. This antelope is the result of the leopard's hunt—it successfully chased, killed, and brought the prey up into the tree's upper branches. This is not unusual - leopards often carry food into trees to avoid losing it to scavengers like lions and hyenas. As solitary animals, they spend most of their time alone, with males and females only crossing territories to mate.


On the outskirts of Kenyas capital city, Nairobi, lays Kambethu Farm - a farm of Camellia sinensis, also known as tea, situated at 2,194m. This farm was originally began by Aarnold Butler McDonell in 1910, who received tea seedlings from his friend in India and decided to experiment with the plant, marking him as one of the first to make and sell tea commercially in Kenya, which is now one of Kenyas largest exports. Five generations have lived on the farm which is currently run by his granddaughter, Fiona Vernon.

Due to its rich content of polyphenols, particularly catechins, tea boasts remarkable antioxidant properties that position it as an exceptional beverage with a range of health benefits.

These pictures show a young Olive and its mother. As omnivores, these animals do not limit their diet to plants and fruits - olive baboons also actively hunt prey, such as small rodents, birds and other primates, and has even been observed hunting for small gazelles. The group that I observed was pretty large - baboons have complex social structures with anywhere from 8 to 200 individuals per troop. Interestingly, you'll often find the males grooming the infants, which helps reduce the presence of parasites and provides comfort during stressful moments. . However, they also exploit infants and often use them as shields to reduce the likelihood that other males will threaten them.


Plain zebras are constantly on the move to find fresh grass and water. Sometimes they gather in huge herds of thousands as they migrate to better feeding grounds. They often travel in mixed herds with other grazers and browsers, such as wildebeest.

This image portrays a female ostrich in Masai Mara. Ostriches, being sizable flightless birds, hold the distinction of being the heaviest living birds and lay the most substantial eggs among land animals. Remarkably, they exhibit land speeds of up to 70 km/h, making them the fastest birds on land. An intriguing aspect of ostrich behavior is their co-parenting approach. During the day, the female takes charge of egg incubation, while the male takes over the night shift. This division of duties is accompanied by a clever adaptation in their appearance: the female's lighter coloring helps her blend seamlessly into the daytime sand environment, while the male's darker hue provides nocturnal nest protection.


Taken in Lake Nakuru National Park, this photo captures a Southern white rhinoceros. The term "white" in "white rhinoceros" actually originates from the Afrikaans word "wyd," which means "wide." Interestingly, early English settlers misinterpreted "wyd" as "white." Currently, Southern white rhinos, once believed to be extinct, are thriving in protected sanctuaries across Africa and are now classified as "near threatened." Unfortunately, the Northern white rhino population is on the brink of extinction, with only two females remaining, meaning the species is functionally extinct.

This image portrays a hippopotamus in Lake Naivasha. Despite their herbivorous diet, hippos are surprisingly Africa's most dangerous animals, displaying aggressive tendencies and occasionally killing other animals. Their territorial nature and protective instincts extend to their young. Remarkably, hippos cause over a thousand human deaths each year in Africa, surpassing the threat posed by snakes and crocodiles. They outpace all other mammals in safari parks as the leading cause of human fatalities.


This image captures a herd of Masai giraffes engaged in their annual migration across the expanse of Masai Mara. Each year, commencing in April, the herbivores indigenous to the savannah initiate their journey through Serengeti National Park. After spending the months of December to March grazing in the lush pastures of northern Tanzania, which are abundant with sustenance and water due to the rainy season, the time comes for a change. As the Tanzanian landscape progressively dries out, the herbivores embark on a northward trek toward Kenya's Masai Mara. They traverse the waters of the Mara River, entering Kenya around the month of August, before eventually reversing course and heading south once more. This process is called the Great Migration and is widely recognized as one of nature's most spectacular phenomena.

Lake Naivasha is one of the few freshwater lakes in East Africa. Its waters harbor a substantial community of hippopotamuses. Within this image, I've captured local fishermen practicing their trade by siting atop acacia tree trunks. The area around Lake Navaisha is famous for its flourishing flower farms, which are a vital export industry for Kenya. These flowers are harvested during the nighttime hours and shipped to Europe, reaching markets within the following day.
