Photo by @paleyphoto (Matthieu Paley). How is life in a remote village in Pakistan’s Karakoram mountains, near the border with Afghanistan? Last summer, I spent a couple of weeks there with my family; you can read my story titled “Home on the Range" in the latest National Geographic magazine. Here, a bride awaits the arrival of her husband. For years, marriages in this region had been arranged by the bride’s and groom’s parents. Today, many couples meet on social media sites or while at university and refer with pride to their bonds as “arranged love marriages”.

Video by @bertiegregory. A huge female jaguar taking a nap up a tree. Her 1-year-old cub was crashing around on the river beach below. The female didn't look particularly impressed when woken up by the commotion! Shot for @stevewinterphoto, @natgeowild and @natgeo. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife adventures and to see the cub crashing around soon!

Video by @salvarezphoto (Stephen Alvarez) I shot the original images to make this 3-D model on assignment for @natgeo. The ancient artwork in Chauvet cave is beyond compare. It is 36,000 years old yet seems so fresh. Standing in front of this artwork is a moving experience. It is as if the artist is talking straight to you across an unimaginable gulf of time. We don't have to wonder what paleolithic people thought, they tell their stories on the cave wall.  Last year I founded the Ancient Art Archive (@ancientartarchive) to help preserve and explore humanity's first stories (there is a link at @ancientartarchive that takes the project page). The project uses photography and 3-D modeling to help bring artwork that most of us will never see to a new audience. #rockart #cave #paleolithic

Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio … In a regional parliament building that maybe should remain anonymous. Portraits of all the leaders since the war.  An unconscious advert for some kind of change?

Photo @ladzinski / A bull elephant, surrounded by thousands of #RedBilledQuelea at a watering hole in #Zimbabwe. Quelea's are the most abundant wild bird species on the planet, all found in sub-Saharan Africa. There an estimated 1.5 BILLION breeding pairs. During the breeding season these birds flock to areas to nest, commonly numbering in the 10's of thousands and have often been seen in flocks estimated to be over 1 million strong. They can literally blacken the sky in flocks of this size while flying. For farmers it's a serious problem, these birds can wipe out an entire harvest in hours, leaving your years work and economy leveled. The sound of the birds in flight can sound like a gust of wind or even an incoming airplane when the flock is in great number. Truly remarkable and just another thing to love about Africa.

Photo by @renan_ozturk // Proud of all those marching today and making a statement about climate change. Even in my short lifetime it's been startling to see first hand places that used to have snow and glaciers melt out and fade away. To me the high mountains always feel more 'alive' when covered in snow and ice. A lot of recent trips to the Himalaya have shown the irreversible warming, glaciers are melting out and the even elders know why. While I still fly often for work, I'm choosing to #actonclimate by living in a passive solar home, driving an electric car, cutting out factory farmed meat and dairy from my diet, and doing as much as I can. ~

Photo by @michaelmelford Torres del Paine National Park, Chile. I love to go out in the dark on cloudy days that don't hold much promise and be surprised as the light comes on and the clouds light up from the sun. Our digital cameras can actually see the color before our eyes can. Get up early and head out to enjoy our protected public lands!! #nature #patagonia #photography #light #chile #sunrise

@RobertClarkphoto The Greater Flamingo's signature pink coloring is the result of its diet. Flamingos consume massive amounts of animal and plant plankton very rich in beta carotene. A rich pink coat indicates the bird has a healthy diet, making it more attractive to potential mates.
The Greater Flamingo lives in the wild in Africa, Southern Europe and parts of Asia. This picture is part of a larger body of work about feathers, #PigmentaryColor and #StructuralColor. Look at my feed and learn more about feathers.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // As the sun sets over the calm waters of the Antarctic Peninsula, a young leopard seal rests on a whimsical piece of ice. Corroded by currents and waves, small icebergs like this one, serve as perches for wildlife, including penguins, seals and seabirds who often use them to rest. Without ice, life in the polar regions would be impossible. To learn how our story will be used to promote the creation of marine protected areas in Antartica and for #moreocean, please #followme at @CristinaMittermeier.

Today is Arbor Day. North Korean women, demonstrating for peace and reunification on the #Korean Peninsula in 2015, stand before a group of trees that have been partially cut.

Photo by @FransLanting Today we’re celebrating trees—it’s Arbor Day. I spent weeks inside Borneo’s tropical rain forest on assignment for @NatGeo to document its intricate natural history. One morning I took a helicopter up for an aerial perspective. When we rose above the canopy, my view expanded from single trees to the forest as a whole. I saw morning mist wafting through the treetops and envisioned the collective exhalation of these trees as the breath of a living planet. Trees are responsible for the air we breathe—what they exhale, we inhale. We are linked together in the cycle of life. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of our our amazing earth.
