Photo by @RobertClarkphoto // Who knew chickens could fly? I guess it was more like running and flapping. I photographed this #chicken on assignment for @natgeo @ the @madeinghent farm owned by @richardbeaven and @MimiBeaven.
The #Araucana (Spanish: 'Gallina Mapuche') is a breed of domestic chicken from Chile. Its name derives from the Araucanía region of #Chile where it is believed to have originated. It lays blue-shelled eggs, one of very few breeds that do so.

Western Grebe, San Diego, California // Photo by @schaferpho @natgeo – Graced with an elegantly long neck, a Western Grebe bends toward a dive in search for food. They are consummate fishing birds and rarely come to the surface without a wriggling fish in their bills. Frankly, I would love to capture that moment, when they suddenly pop to the surface, dripping with water, but grebes often long distances underwater, so predicting where they will appear is nearly impossible. Maybe one day. #birdsofinstagram #wildbirds #grebes

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier // As I kicked hard to keep pace with this egg-yolk jellyfish (Phacellophora camtschatica) in the dwindling light of the Brith Columbia sunset, the strong currents of the Salish Sea drew us both, helplessly and rapidly, through one of the hundreds of fjords and channels that make this ecosystem so vibrant and abundant.

A Bactrian camel stoically endures Kyrgyz children as they play on and around the beast, outside of a Kyrgyz winter camp at about 14,000 feet in the Little Pamirs, Wakhan Corridor, northeastern Afghanistan. These woolly, double-humped camels are domestic relatives of the wild and critically endangered Bactrian camels of southern China and northern Mongolia. The humps store fat that the camels can use for sustenance and water in lean times. Camels are important as beasts of burden for the nomadic Krygyz, who use them for moving their yurts from camp to camp, and they are also symbols of wealth and status. Not long ago, Kyrgyz men took camel caravans in winter months down frozen rivers to the villages in the valleys, where they would trade yak butter, sheep and goats for wheat and other supplies with the Wakhi, the indigenous people of the Wakhan. I took this photo ten years ago, in January of 2008, during a month-long journey on foot through the road-less, frozen mountain world of the Afghan Pamirs, part of a several year project to document the peoples of the Wakhan-the Wakhi and Kyrgyz-their ways of life, their relationship to each other, to their environment and to the wildlife of the Pamirs. Despite the hardship, it was one of the most amazing trips of my life, and I had the incredible privilege to spend time with incredible and hardy Kyrgyz and Wakhi families who welcomed me into their yurts, huts and houses. Check out my feed @bethjwald for more photos from this series, which I will be posting through the week. #Afghanistan #wakhancorridor #Afghanpamirs #Pamirs #Kyrgyz #Kirghiz #camel bactriancamel #mountainculture #Badakshan #roofoftheworld #bamidunya #onassignment #centralasia #pastoralist #frozen #nikon @thephotosociety @ilcp_photographers @natgeocreative

The Photographer’s Photographer Award is voted on by the photographers of @NatGeo and is awarded to the peer they feel has most inspired them by expanding the possibilities of photography. This year @anandavarma became the 8th recipient of the award for his work with hummingbirds. (swipe right to see more). @geosteinmetz presented the award at the annual #NatGeoPhotoSeminar in Washington, DC. and had this to say, “ His picture editor here described him as “an editor’s dream”, someone you could give an idea to, and just let him run with it. Weeks later, he starts sending in samples of work with very publishable images accompanied by detailed self-critiques, as he is always searching for ways to make them just a little bit better. […] If you want to photograph the wonders of biology, you soon realize that the vast majority of life forms are less than a half-inch across. Taking pictures of small stuff is incredibly difficult, with problems of focus, scale, and the need for lighting equipment that is the same size as the moving subject. Although he claims that great photography is not about technique, but about understanding your subject, our winner is quite modest. He works on subjects so specialized that he has to build his own equipment. And although he is just 31 years old, this photographer already likes to give back. He works tirelessly in support of science, running workshops in the US and abroad to teach scientists how to be more visually literate.” // Many congratulations Anand!

Photo by @robertclarkphoto // I was struck by the shape and the webbed feet of the #crocodiles, the #reptile does not typically use them to help them to swim. However, on land a crocodile can run as quickly as 11 miles an hour for a very short distance on its short legs.
