Video by @Filipe_DeAndrade @brianmoghari and @mckenziebarney | While they’re excellent natural pollinators and extremely beneficial to their environment, the ruby-throated hummingbird makes it quite a challenge to get a great shot. But it’s a fun challenge. For this adventure we wanted to film them on their migratory path back to Central America for the winter. We knew that at that point on their migration they would be extra aggressive and territorial over food sources since they have to travel over 500 miles without stopping. There was a lot of coffee and a lot of nectar drank on this shoot. Check out the entire sequence in my series #wilduntamedon natgeowild.com/untamed or click the link in my personal bio.

Photo @ladzinski / A young #lioncub hiding in a #shepardstreewaiting for mom to show up, hopefully with a meal. The first few months for new born lions is the most dangerous. This cub, along with his siblings, are too young to bring back to the pride, there is a risk they could be accidentally killed by the family. It's moms responsibility to hide them from predators, hunt and get them strong in the meantime. #kalahari

Photo by @jenniferhayesig // Elkhorn Coral glows like gold beneath the setting sun in Gardens of the Queen National Marine Park, Cuba. Elkhorn Coral is an important reef building coral in the Caribbean that is now critically endangered and drastically diminished throughout its original range. Populations of Elkhorn coral have managed to survive and even thrive in this protected remote archipelago located fifty miles off the souther cost of Cuba. Descending into this marine sanctuary, the largest in the Caribbean, is like descending into a time machine to see a vintage Caribbean Sea.

Photo by @TomasVH. Are we at a point in the evolution of photography where the medium has become weaponized? Cameras are increasingly deployed for surveillance, spying, or targeting. I often wonder whether these uses have already eclipsed traditional ones, such as portraiture and fine art. I'll be exploring these questions in the year ahead with a @CatchLight.io Fellowship in partnership with the @PulitzerCenter. Follow me at @tomasvh as the project develops.

Image by @joelsartore | A sunbittern at the @cincinnatizoo. This is a cryptic bird whose wings have detailed patterns that resemble large eyes. Sunbitterns display their wings in order to frighten and confuse predators. They have also been known to flaunt their wing patterns during courtship and threat displays. These birds have a huge range-- from Guatemala all the way to southern Peru.

Video by @bertiegregory. Yacare caiman are capable of making water dance! When displaying to potential mates and showing members of the same sex who’s boss, they sink down into the water so their backs are just below the surface. They then produce a spooky low frequency booming noise which causes this bizarre spectacle. Shot for @stevewinterphoto, @natgeowild and @natgeo. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures.

@marcusbleasdale War is not always about death and destruction. In the middle of a conflict villagers return from their farms with food for their families. Despite the violence and constant oppression, they have time for fun with a photographer. Learn more about the conflict and the people of CAR in the new edition of the National Geographic Magazine which includes a reportage shot by me over four years in the Central African Republic. It represents the people of CAR and their struggle for survival during the #carcrisis. The iPad or iPhone edition will include additional photos. Incredible text by @petergwin. Thanks to all the staff at National Geographic Magazine and @humanrightswatch and all those in CAR who helped to make this piece a reality. Special thanks to @bouckap

Photo by @GerdLudwig 31 years ago, on April 26, 1986 reactor #4at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant blew up. The radioactive fallout spread over thousands of square kilometers, driving more than a quarter of a million people permanently from their homes. It remains the worst nuclear accident to date. In 2011, the Ukrainian government legalized trips to the Chernobyl exclusion zone allowing it to become a disaster-tourism destination. The most riveting attraction for visitors is the ghost town of Pripyat: dolls are scattered in abandoned kindergartens, floors are rotting, paint is peeling from the walls, and gas masks litter-evacuated schools. Pripyat today bears less than honest witness to its abrupt abandonment as visitors have changed its landscape: first the scavengers, who stripped the rooms of valuables and now the tourists. With limited time in the zone, the visitors often alter the abandoned environment, making compositions to be photographed close-up by countless cameras and phones. The ever-falling chips of chalk from the ceilings have blanketed some of these “still-lifes,” often creating the illusion for the next visitors that this is how the evacuees hastily abandoned the scene. You can learn more about Chernobyl from my book and iPad app The Long Shadow of Chernobyl. @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #TheLongShadowOfChernobyl #Chernobyl #nuclear #environment #disaster #dolls #tourism

Video by Paolo Woods and Gabriele Galimberti @woods_galimberti @gabrielegalimbertiphoto | More than 1.3 million people are estimated to visit the David in the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence, Italy. The David is a marble sculpture created between 1501 and 1504 by Michelangelo Buonarroti. It represents the Biblical hero David and is considered a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture and has become one of the most recognizable icons of the history of art as well as the incarnation of Michelangelo’s #genius.

Photo by @michaelchristopherbrown. A baby chimpanzee observes visitors to the Kisangani Zoo. Despite being among the most minerally rich countries in the world, the Democratic Republic of the Congo has ranked among the poorest and most underdeveloped nations, largely due to corruption. The Kisangani Zoo receives just enough funding from visitors to stay open but not enough to maintain healthy conditions for the Chimps, Crocodiles, Snakes, Monkeys, Birds and other creatures that populate the grounds. Organization such as the @janegoodallinst are active in pursuing proper conditions for chimps in the region. For more from Congo follow me at @michaelchristopherbrown

Photo by @FransLanting It’s World Penguin Day and we’re celebrating the true natives of Antarctica—emperor penguins, who never set foot ashore on anything but the frozen seas around Antarctica, where two parents can raise one chick under heroic conditions. It’s a race against time, because they have to fledge their young before the sea ice melts later in the summer. They can do that on their own, but they depend on us to keep the ice under their feet solid. Climate change is real and Antarctica’s ice is shrinking fast. Penguins are like canaries in a global coal mine when it comes to witnessing how our planet is changing. Follow me @FransLanting for more stories from the world of penguins. @thephotosociety @natgeotravel @leonardodicaprio #penguins #nature #explore #wildlifephotography #amazing #climatechange #Antarctica #Parents #family #life #joy

by @drewtrush // I had never been here before, and swung by the ranger station to orient myself and try and get some information. “That's the Temple of the Moon” the Ranger said as he pointed his hand over his shoulder at a picture hanging on the wall as I asked him about rock formations to place in front of the Milky Way. “But the moon doesn’t set until 4:03, so you won’t have any stars until then which may be a problem”. The road (not marked in the dark) took a little while and 3 passes to find before I finally made my way the twenty something miles down the dusty dirt road. I finally arrived at 1:30 in the morning and grabbed some much needed sleep in the truck, parked at the base of this formation. When I woke, the Milky Way had just come into view as the moon set behind the ridge and put on an amazing show until dawn. As they say, "Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good."

Photograph by @paulnicklen taken while on assignment for @natgeo // A fur seal stretches and rolls around at the base of blue whale vertebrae at an old whaling station on the Antarctic peninsula. Between 1910 and 1930 in this small area alone, over 61,336 blue whales were killed. If you add in Right, Fin, Sei, Humpback and Sperm whales, the catch added up to 118,159 in that period. Seals were also wiped out. Except for humpback and minke whales, the great whales in this area remain a tiny a fraction of what they once were. Fur seals, however, have shown great signs of recovery. #followmeon @paulnicklen to see more from this changing land and seascape. #nature #whales #humanimpact #seal #ecosystemrecovery

On assignment with @daviddoubilet // Photographing an American crocodile at night in the mangroves of Gardens of the Queen National Park, Cuba. This crocodile rested in the soft seagrass for several minutes and then rose slowly to take a breath of air and return to the bottom to sleep again. Crocodiles are called the engineers of the mangroves because their movements increase circulation of water and nutrients through the dense root systems of the mangroves. Gardens of the Queen Marine Preserve, located fifty miles south of Cuba, is a time capsule in the Caribbean that looks much like it did when Columbus arrived and named it in honor of his Queen.

Photo be @Robertclarkphoto | The #nakedmoleratis an extraordinary mammal, they are coldblooded, No other known #mammalis. They live in an underground tunnel complexes in colonies of hundreds led by a queen, they live in hives, much like bees. For several years scientists thought they didn't get cancer. And now it seems that they can survive for 18 minutes with no oxygen. No oxygen. Generally, they can run their cells on glucose, the usual way of mice, humans and all other mammals. That process requires oxygen, which comes from breathing. But mole rats can switch to a different kind of biochemical process that uses fructose, the sugar in fruit and high fructose corn syrup which needs almost no oxygen. The mole rat falls a suspended animation, with a much lower heart rate and breathing. Other mammals, like people and mice, can metabolize fructose without oxygen, only in a very limited way. Mole rats evolved this ability because the tunnels they live in can be low in oxygen.

photo by @chamiltonjames / Charlie Hamilton James - bison in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming. Grand Teton National Park doesn’t have as many bison as its closer larger neighbour Yellowstone National Park, but a small population persist here. They spend the harsh winter using their enormous heads and powerful necks to plough the snow in pursuit of edible plants beneath the snow. This image was taken on a remote camera back in December - a camera I recovered today after the snow finally melted and revealed it. Shot on assignment for National Geographic Society

Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio Two Years ago the Yemeni crisis took a deadly turn. According to the United Nations, 16,200 people have been killed in Yemen since 2015 including 10,000 civilians. The humanitarian situation in what was already one of the world’s poorest nations, is now, after Syria, the most critical on the planet, with 20% of Yemenis severely food insecure. Here photographed the centre of Shibam in Wadi Hadramout province, entireymud-built and listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site for its high-rise mud-brick buildings.

Video by @bertiegregory. Giant otters are an extremely social species living groups of up to 20 individuals. Communication within their family group is important but perhaps more important, is communication between family groups. Why? Because, an adult giant otter needs to eat about 2kg/4lbs of fish every single day so maintaining access to good fishing is vital. As a result, a significant amount of their day is spent hauling out on the river banks in their territory, urinating and defecating on the floor before dancing and sliding around in it. What a life!

Photo @ladzinski / A baby #WhiteRhino, adorably grazing at sunrise in the dry African #savanna. It's small little keratin horn is already beginning to develop, a key feature for defense and foraging. Rhino's are living relics, they have been roaming the earth for millions of years, survived ice ages and prehistoric times when predators like giant hyena and crocodile roamed the earth. Through all of this, their biggest threat in this long history of survival is poaching by man. Let's hope that we can continue to make better decisions when it comes to the senseless rhino horn trade so species like this can continue on.

Photo by @stephenwilkes: Day To Night, Grand Canyon National Park. While other images from my Day to Night series have proven to be quite challenging, this image was made even more complicated by sheer logistics. How would I create an image that showed one of the most photographed places in the world in a completely unique way? My goal was to create an image that showed the majesty and vastness of the Grand Canyon, incorporating a human scale and narrative within the scene. I photographed from the top of the Desert View Watchtower at the South Rim - in the late summer so that I could capture the summer storms - where my team and I worked for 27 hours scanning this amazing vista for all the unique moments from Day to Night. The long hours paid off and I was able to capture a single bolt of lightning just before the storm retreated into the canyon. #NationalParks #nps #GrandCanyon #southrim #StephenWilkes #DayToNight #natgeo #brycewolkowitzgallery #peterfettermangallery #monroegallery

Photo by @FransLanting “Rebirth” I share this in celebration of Earth Day. New forests of coastal redwoods are growing tall again close to where I live in Santa Cruz, California. They were nearly wiped out in the 19th century when forests were clearcut for the construction boom in San Francisco. California’s oldest state park was established in 1902 in the Santa Cruz Mountains to save the last giants. To create this image, I used hidden strobes to illuminate a cathedral of majestic redwood trees.
