Photo by @FransLanting This young orangutan near a rehab center in Borneo’s lowland rain forest made maximum use of its hands and feet: Hanging onto a vine with two limbs, it tried to slap me as it swung past me, its mouth in a threatening gape to add to its display--which was actually more play than bluff. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more intimate encounters of the animal kind. @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #Orangutan #Nature #Rainforest #Wild

Octopus Drying in the Sun | Photograph by Feray Umut
.
“This is the Greek island of Samos; mathematician Pythagoras was born here,” says #YourShotPhotographer Feray Umut. “Octopus, which dries in the sun to be served in restaurants, has been a popular dish in Greece for thousands of years, and has been a menu staple in the country.”

“This image has haunted me in the most beautiful way since I first say it. I love what [Your Shot photographer] Brenda Snape said, ‘The light, the beach scene and the octopus… they meld together yet could be separate images all on their own.’ While they could absolutely be images on their own, this frame in its entirety feels unsettling and beautiful all at once, and that tension is what I love so much about it. Beautifully seen, Feray!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

#followmeto the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt with @natalyosmann. Still no one has been able to properly explain what the true purpose of this ancient structure was, or how was it built. Did you know that this pyramid has eight sides? The centres of the four sides are slightly indented. This phenomenon is only detectable at dawn and sunset on the spring and autumn equinoxes. It is also believed that the three Pyramids of the Giza Plateau mimic the constellation of Orion, or at least used to. ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
What other mysteries about the pyramids do you know?

#Следуйзамной к комплексу пирамид в Гизе.
До сих пор никто не может правильно объяснить, какова истинная цель этой древней структуры, или как она была построена. Знаете ли вы, что эта пирамида имеет восемь сторон? Центры четырех сторон слегка отклонены. Это явление обнаруживается только на рассвете и на закате весеннего и осеннего равноденствий. Считается также, что три пирамиды Плато Гизы имитируют созвездие Ориона. ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
Какие тайны пирамид знаете вы?
