Photo by @franslantingThe best indication that you have earned the trust of wild animals is when they fall asleep in front of you. This is Nickel, a female chimp cradling her newborn baby Teva, while they’re sleeping in a tree in the Fongoli region of southeast Senegal. There are less than 200 chimps left in Senegal and their future hangs in the balance, just like it does for all chimps in Africa.We worked with Nickel and the rest of her family for six weeks, following them on foot through their forest and were able to capture unique behavior never documented before. Follow me @franslantingto see amazing footage of chimps playing in water. @natgeocreative@christineeckstrom#chimps#africa#senegal#wildlife#conservation#baby#family#motherhood
Photo by @taylorglenn// The wildlife is definitely closer than it may appear. We just had an absolutely amazing encounter with this wonderful bull elephant here in Etosha National Park. The game viewing here is just extraordinary. Jump over to my feed @taylorglennto see a series of images from our chance meet up. #namibia#elephant#etoshanationalpark
Photo by @renan_ozturk// Monster and Washer Woman towers within what seems like infinite layers of @canyonlandsnpsgeology. I remember doing them both in the same day when I was young and wide-eyed about the adventure of the climbing life. On the summits I added a few drawings in the registers which are rich with history and culture. Just recently I went back and snapped this photo with @chrisburkardand his crew of @snackfarmer@tentides.I have to say that my excitement and appreciation for this place has only grown.

Photo @stephen_matera// Late autumn Sunset on The East Temple in Zion National Park, Utah. Zion National Park was established on November 19th, 1919 and ranges in elevation from 3,600' to 8,700'. As it flows downstream, the North Fork of the Virgin River continues to carve Zion Canyon deeper and deeper.

@johnkernickphotographyOld Harry Rocks are three chalk formations, including a stack (Old Harry) and a stump, (Old Harry's wife) located at Handfast Point, on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset, southern England. They mark the most easterly point of the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.The rocks can be viewed from the Dorset section of the South West Coast Path. The chalk of Old Harry Rocks used to be part of a long stretch of chalk between Purbeck and the Isle of Wight, but remained as a headland after large parts of this seam were eroded away. One of these stacks is known as Old Harry. Old Harry's Wife was another stack which was eroded through corrosion and abrasion, until the bottom was so weak the top fell away, leaving a stump. Hydraulic action is the main cause of erosion (sheer force of the wave) that damaged the rock and caused it to fall away. .....#oldharryrocks#jurassiccoast#isleofpurbeck#johnkernickphotography#dorset#ukcountryside#uk
Photo by @carltonward// Caladesi Island has been an inspiration to me since childhood. I grew up on the Gulf Coast of Florida near the city of Clearwater amidst the most densely populated county in the southeastern US. Caladesi was, and remains, a last remnant of nature amidst a landscape completely consumed by human development. I later learned that my great grandfather helped save Caladesi as a state park in the 1960s. After becoming a photographer in collage, Caladesi was the first place in Florida I pointed my lens, and I can now clearly see how the island shaped my career and purpose for saving wild Florida. Standing on the north end of Clearwater Beach beside the Gulf of Mexico, it is my favorite place to watch the full moon rise above the pines as palms. #firstname.lastname@example.org#floridawild#keepflwild#gulfofmexico#moonrise . Please follow me @carltonwardto explore the hidden wild.
Photo by @babaktafreshiThe World at Night photographySwipe left to see this 2-panel panorama. A calm peaceful dusk on the western border of Iran. Not the same last Sunday around 10pm local time when a major earthquake hit an area not far from this place, taking hundreds of lives in Kermanshah province where I’ve visited a number of times for photography when I was living in Iran; an area filled with archeological sites and rich culture, but poor infrastructure against natural hazards.My today post is a tribute to thousands of families who were affected and now need immediate help.This photo shows Uraman, a mountainous area of unique villages in Kurdistan of Iran. In the sky Venus is the first “star” showing up in twilight.@natgeocreative@natgeo#earthquake#iran#kurdistan#uraman#kermanshahearthquake
: @krystlejwright// The Bonneville Salt Flats are one of the most unique landscapes found in Utah. Stretching over 30000 acres, the area is a remnant of the Pleistocene Lake Bonneville and is the largest of many salt flats located west of the Great Salt Lake. Recent rains caused some unique salt crust patterns and a photographers dream to shoot images from an aerial perspective from a paraglider.
