[ #TBT From May 24, 2017 ] Top Shot: Rain Delay | Photograph by Moin Ahmed

“I was taking photos and waiting for a moment [at Tongi Railway Station in Gazipur, Bangladesh,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Moin Ahmed. “A train from Dhaka, heading towards another district, had stopped at the platform for five minutes to pick up passengers in the down pouring rain. Suddenly I found a pair of curious eyes looking at me through the window, and on his left, an umbrella opened for protection from the rain. I got the moment.”

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.

Slicing, sizzling, smoking — Laurel Driskill (@sugar_boogerz) cuts through meltable objects with a hot knife and revels in the results. “It’s seriously so fun,” says Laurel, a 24-year-old student of painting and animation who lives in Massachusetts. “It keeps me young. I love when my grocery basket is full of crayons, glitter and Play-Doh.”
Laurel turned to creating her #ASMR videos (that’s autonomous sensory meridian response, when certain sounds and visuals cause relaxing tingling on the head and neck) while she was going through her divorce. “I needed an outlet: something to focus on that was outside of myself and that gave back to the world,” says Laurel. “I get messages all the time saying thank you and expressing gratitude for making my videos. My ASMR journey is an example of a very good thing that came from a really bad thing.”

I just returned from the amazing, Zakouma National Park in Chad, one of the many parks run by the groundbreaking conservation group African Parks in partnership with the Chadian government and the local communities. @africanparksnetwork

Black Rhinos are back - having “disappeared” from Chad due to poaching in 1972 but now 6 black rhinos have been successfully moved cross continent from South Africa to Zakouma. Here is Harry in his boma at night. All six rhinos are happy and healthy!
In this historic move to aid in the long-term survival of this endangered and heavily threatened species, six black rhinos are being reintroduced bringing this animal back to the country for the first time in over four decades. The translocation is an extraordinary cross-collaboration between the South African Department of Environmental Affairs, the Government of the Republic of Chad, as well as African Parks and South African National Park (SANParks). This is a hopeful story about the revival of a highly threatened species, as well as the trajectory of Zakouma - a park that was once ravaged by poaching and insecurity but has been transformed into a secure and flourishing park since 2010. This international conservation initiative is unprecedented and saw these black rhinos being flown over 3,000 miles to the well-protected Zakouma National Park, managed by African Parks since 2010 in partnership with the Government of Chad. overhauling law enforcement and working closely with the local communities to protect the park. Without the support of local communities this would not work. Local people are the anti-poaching patrols.

They have jobs in other parts of the park including tourism and management. This is truly a remarkable effort to repopulate and protect African Parks.

Photo by @amivitale. Giraffe keeper Lekupania and two orphaned giraffes whose lives he saved at Sarara Camp (@sararacamp) in northern Kenya. The giraffes come back to Sarara, which sits on the 850,000-acre Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy and is owned by the Samburu community, every morning to check in with Lekupania. Twigs, the oldest giraffe, was found upside down and stuck in an erosion gully and immediately rescued by the community. Both giraffes have been successfully introduced back into the wild. Current estimates are that giraffe populations across Africa have dropped 40 percent, plummeting from 140,000 in the late 1990s to around 85,000 today. To learn more about incredible conservation efforts in the area, follow and come visit Sarara Camp (@sararacamp) and nearby Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e).

Saint-Petersburg Catherine Palace is definitely worth visiting if anyone comes to Russia. This amazing palace was bombed during the World War 2. Its famous Amber Room was dismantled and eventually disappeared during the war. Before it’s loss it was thought to be an “Eights Wonder of the World”. We were super lucky to have this place just for us for this photo as usually it is packed with people.

❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍ #следуйзамной в Екатерининский дворец. Этот невероятный дворец в Царском селе был сильно разрушен во время одной из бомбардировок. Во время Великой Отечественной войны дворец оказался на оккупированных территориях и его знаменитая Янтарная комната была вывезена немецкими войсками. Считалось, что Янтарная комната - это “восьмое чудо света” Нам невероятно повезло сфотографировать кадр без людей. ❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍
