"When the Stars Align" by @bennettfilm - "Here's a unique photo of mine for a bit of a change. I took this last year while on a trip with @kapitolreef and tried out underwater photography, this was probably the best click I got! To take it I had to blow out all my air to sink to the bottom and then wait for all the sand to settle, then snap away until I floated back up to the surface again, then I repeated about 20 more times until I got this one." Persistence pays off.. βœ¨πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

Curious fact: Julian Finn of the Museum Victoria in Australia told Scientific American that octopuses often emerge from the sea to hunt in tide pools, or to escape from predators. While they do need water to breathe, they can manage on land for several minutes, providing their skin to stay moist.

A rare and beautiful capture of Migaloo, a well known brilliant white humpback whale. It was reportedly the only white albino whale in the world until an all white calf had been sighted just a few years ago. As humpbacks migrate annually to tropical waters to give birth, Migaloo and MJ (Migaloo junior) are a magical and rare encounter for avid whale watchers along Australia's East coast.

Photograph by @PaulNicklen // Why do you think male narwhals have to carry around this sometimes inconvenient tooth? Is it actually a tooth? How long do you think they grow? Do they have teeth inside of their mouths? What percentage of female narwhals have a tusk? If there were such massive physiological benefits to having a narwhal tusk then don’t you think both sexes would have them? How deep can narwhals dive? Are they hunted? Is it legal to sell narwhal tusks? How many populations of narwhal are there? We know so little about these amazing mammals - and have much to learn if we’re to help them survive our changing climate.
