Although an often unwelcome summer visitor, wasps are very important pollinators. They also keep ecosystems in balance by feeding pest insects to their larvae! This species feeds on nectar from a variety of flowers and like all species of wasp, carry pollen on their heads or backs, often between their wings. Wasps are among a small handful of species that are responsible for pollinating the flowers of orchids. #pollinator #PhotoArk #wasp #pollinatingspecies

Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHP🌈
This weekend, we’re celebrating love, pride and the LGBTQ community with #WHP🌈.
Play with the ROYGBIV color spectrum. Create photos that incorporate the whole rainbow.
Find rainbows out in the world, whether they’re painted as a mural on a city wall or wrapped around a parade-goer at a local Pride celebration.
Create your own rainbows. Dress up in colorful outfits, paint rainbows on your eyelids or bake a colorful batch of cookies.
PROJECT RULES: Please add the #WHP🌈 hashtag only to photos and videos shared over this weekend and only submit your own visuals to the project. If you include music in your video submissions, please only use music to which you own the rights. Any tagged photo or video shared over the weekend is eligible to be featured next week.


Photograph by @paulnicklen // A sixty-foot long fin whale swims past me off the coast of the Azores. These endangered whales will soon head north to feed in the nutrient abundant waters around Iceland. These whales were once hunted to near extinction. Although their numbers remain low, they are showing signs of a comeback. Now, they are being hunted again. Please go to @paulnicklen to learn more. #whale #finwhale #bethechange

Top Shot: When Spring Met Summer | Photograph by Maximiliaan Van Es (@_maximiliaan_)
“My photo series ‘When Spring Met Summer’ shows the transition between spring and summer, when flowers fully bloom and life is a little more colorful. It shows the evolutionary path of a flower from its beginning stage of a bud to a mature flower,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Maximiliaan Van Es. “The photo series also encompasses a degree of romanticism whereby there is a deep connection between man and nature, where their dependence on each other is fragile but undeniably essential.” This photo was selected for the June 21, 2018 Daily Dozen.

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.
