National Geographic  Life is an adventure - enjoy the ride and the world through the eyes of National Geographic photographers.

It's a true honor to spend time in the water with these amazing apex predators. // #followme @andy_mann to go into the depths at night with our finned friends.

Photo by @chamiltonjames words by @chrisfagan_uac on assignment in the Peruvian Amazon. Huni Kuin girls patiently await breakfast in the community of Curanjillo near Peru’s Alto Purús National Park. Contacted by missionaries in the mid-1900’s, the Huni Kuin live in small villages in the Peru—Brazil borderlands and survive mainly on subsistence hunting, fishing and tending small gardens. Peccary, tapir, monkeys and giant catfish provide a protein-rich diet, but living in the most remote part of the Amazon if not the world has its challenges. Access to medicine, proper schooling and other government services is limited. Plus, they reluctantly share the forest with still-isolated tribes who raid the Huni Kuin’s gardens and occasionally villages during their seasonal migrations.

Photo @ladzinski / With an estimated 10,000 thermal features, there is no place on earth like #YellowstoneNationalPark. This photo here is of #LakeShoreGeyser on the fringe of the iconic #YellowstoneLake, a long exposure giving it this ethereal feel. In many ways, #MemorialDayWeekend in the United States is the kick-off of the season for National Parks, especially in higher altitudes where many of the roads have been covered in snow. It's a time where these roads are re-opened and the season for visitors from all around the world begins. @yellowstonenps

On this day (28th May) in 1936 Alan Turing published his paper, “On Computable Numbers…”
Turing was an English computer scientist, mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst and theoretical biologist. He was highly influential in the development of theoretical computer science, providing a formalisation of the concepts of algorithm and computation with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence.

The art in simplicity and spirituality, a rice offering called a Tumpeng, in the shape of a volcano in preparation for a ceremonial offering to the spirit believed to reside in active volcano, Mount Merapi, in Sumber, a village 3 k from Merapi in central Java, Indonesia. From my @natgeo story Volcano Gods. To see more images from the Volcano Gods, other photography from various National Geographic stories and personal work, follow me at @johnstanmeyer on IG.

Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - The Monte Corona (Crown Mountain) lava tube system on the Canary island of Lanzarote is one of the world’s classic lava tubes. This lava tube was formed during the eruptions of Monte Corona volcano some 3,000 - 4,500 years ago. Pictured here, a cave explorer wades through one of the many long lakes deep inside Cueva Los Lagos lava tube. Although surface temperatures are stiflingly hot on this Spanish Canary island, the water is icy cold and comes as quite a shock.

Photo by @renan_ozturk // Exited to share the @natgeochannel #Explorer show "The Yellow Brick Road" which airs this Monday, May 29 10/9C! The show exposes the true path of conflict gold that is used for our jewelry, our phones and computers. It was one of the most exciting shoots of our lives as we documented as many sides of the story as possible, visiting warlords deep in the jungle of North Kivu as well as government certified 'conflict free' gold mines. The man pictured paused for a moment in the middle of his manual labor in one of the government mines we visited. There is a lot to this important story, watch the show Monday night to find out more! #conflictgold #DRC #congo ~

Film crew included @j.j.kelley @taylorfreesolo @elaishastokes @taniarashid @aldo_astoria and many crucial local fixers who made it happen!

Photo by @petekmuller. Ben Van Der Waal, a South African Ichthyologist (fish biologist) climbs out of the Cubango river in Angola after an evening collecting specimens. Ben has been collecting fish species in southern Africa for nearly 40 years. He and a team of other field biologists and botanists form a critical component of the @intotheokavango Wilderness Project which aims, in part, to chart biodiversity along the major tributaries leading into the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana. Evening sampling with Ben and his colleague, Paul Skelton, is one of my favorite activities on the expedition. #intotheokavango #cubango2017 #expedition #biodiversity #science #Angola #Cubango #river #Africa #adventure

VIdeo by @cristinamittermeier \\ Sometimes the most interesting part of going to work is the journey. The Freya heaved and bucked as we traveled through the rough Barents Sea in northern Svalbard while on a mission to shine a light on the effects of climate change on polar bears.

Photograph by @thomaspeschak In the Galápagos some groups of sea lions have learned how to hunt yellowfin tuna. In small bands they intercept the schools and drive them into convoluted dead end bays. The sea lions trap them in crevices or push them onto rocky shores where they dispatch the fish with a bite to the head. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine in 2016. I believe this is the first time that this behavior has been photographed. Check out the June 2017 issue of @natgeo magazine for my story on Galápagos and climate change. In collaboration with @darwinfound #galapagosnationalpark @fonassociation #paulmangellfoundation To see a close up of this Galápagos sea lion guarding its catch follow @thomaspeschak
