Photo by @PaulNicklen // A black-browed albatross heads out to sea as it glides over thousands of chirping nests on Steeple Jason Island, which hosts the largest colony of these birds in the world. With a wing-span of up to 8 feet, black-browed albatross are excellent aviators and will sometimes travel up to 200 miles in one trip to feed on krill, fish, and squid. #FollowMe at @PaulNicklen for more photos of animals from around the world. #albatross #wingspan #island #nature #photography

100 million followers? That’s wild. To congratulate National Geographic (@natgeo) on their epic milestone, we’re sharing some behind-the-scenes video from one of their wildlife filmmakers, Bertie Gregory (@bertiegregory).
“Every now and again, the stars align, and you witness an incredible wildlife spectacle,” says the 25-year-old who spends about 11 months out of the year filming wild animals. His favorite? The peregrine falcon, the fastest animal on the planet that can live almost anywhere, even big cities. “They show you don’t have to go halfway around the world to see awesome wildlife. Some of it is right on our doorstep,” he says.
Last year, Bertie did go halfway around the world, however. After a seven-day boat ride through the choppy Atlantic Ocean, he finally reached subantarctic South Georgia Island, home to “millions of seals, penguins and other seabirds” he says. “It was totally overwhelming to know that we have places like this on our planet.”
Today on our IGTV channel, we venture to this remote island with Bertie to see the native rockhopper penguins.

“A twenty second exposure as clouds and light move over the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. I had waited years to visit this particular overlook as the timing just never seemed right, and was finally granted a permit to get a glimpse,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Peter Coskun. “This location is one of two viewpoints where you are able to see the Little Colorado River meet the main Colorado River. When looking closely, you can see the different colors in the muddy water which was likely due to recent summer flash floods. It was worth the wait.”

“This experience was definitely worth the wait — this moment is so beautiful Peter. The colors are gorgeous. Fantastic decision to shoot with a 20-second long exposure, helping create the epic feel to your frame. Thanks for the details in your caption further explaining what I am looking at. Your wait was well rewarded with this photo. I bet this photo looks awesome printed and framed big...” — @natgeoyourshot Producer David Y. Lee (@davidylee)

"No estoy segura de cuál era la relación o el beneficio para cada parte", asegura la fotógrafa de @natgeoyourshot Henley Spier, "pero no fue un acto de depredación por parte del tiburón, quien continuó nadando tranquilamente mientras los peces se le acercaban", 📷: HENLEY SPIERS

Photo by @ronan_donovan | What does this South American bird remind you of? This is a lesser rhea, a close relative of the species in question. It was only a hundred years ago that Alfred Wegener published his theory on continental drift and scientists began to unravel the logic behind plate tectonics, proving the existence of the super continents known as Pangea and later, Gondwanaland. Gondwanaland existed about 200 million years ago, before plate tectonics separated the South American and African continents. One of the main drivers of speciation, or the creation of new species, is separation. The result of about a hundred million years of separation is ample time for one species to split in two, as is the case between the lesser rhea and which species? Hope on over to @ronan_donovan to find out the answer.
