Photo by Aaron Huey @argonautphoto | Sunset at an unnamed granary in #BearsEarsNationalMonument, Utah, shot on assignment for our current cover story. These structures, built by the Ancestral Pueblo people (often, and inappropriately, called the Anasazi), most likely date between 700-1250CE. By 700 there was a strong dependence on corn as a food source in the Cedar Mesa area as well as beans and squash. To survive long droughts these foods would have been stored in massive quantities to last several years in these cliffside granaries. Hear Octavius Seowtewa, the leader of the Galaxy Medicine Society of the Zuni people (descendants of the Ancestral Puebloans of the Bears Ears Region) describe these storehouses by following @argonautphoto and his IG story today. #BearsEarsNationalMonument

Close Encounter | Photograph by Brice Weaver (@briceweaverphotography)
“I spent the entire week on the Nautilus Under Sea at Guadalupe Island diving with this spectacular animal. What an amazing experience to see for myself how graceful, yet powerful the Great White is,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Brice Weaver. “Ever since I was a child, I dreamed of one day diving with Great Whites. This close encounter with such a beautiful animal certainly did not disappoint!”

“I give underwater photographers all the credit for getting in the water with this magnificent creature. Also, I feel you have to be very brave to see their mouths open and coming right for you and still be able to capture this moment. Great frame, Brice!” — @natgeoyourshot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams)


#FotoDelDía | "Tom Miner Basin", al norte del Parque Nacional Yellowstone, es un lugar donde se pueden encontrar ranchos y también depredadores que se trasladan dentro y fuera del parque. Hilary Anderson, fotografiada aquí montando un caballo, es una una figura clásica dirigiendo a la manada sobre la cima del rancho familiar. Pero tiene un propósito práctico: disuadir a los depredadores manteniendo al ganado agrupado y mostrando una presencia humana en la zona.

Hello, world! Today’s #WeeklyFluff gives us the chance to wish Juno (@junotheangrycat) a happy early birthday. 🎂 He turns 7 on October 20. “Juno is 75% Himalayan, 25% Burmese, and 100% handsome,” says Juno’s human Dominique. “I think Juno just looks angry because he is annoyed when humans fail to recognize his level of beauty. He is essentially the George Clooney of cats.”

Photo by @FransLanting When ice gets compressed at the bottom of a glacier or ice field it becomes blue. The older the ice, the bluer it gets. By that measure the iceberg I encountered in Antarctica’s Weddell Sea one day was ancient ice that had calved off from the continent’s edge under the influence of global warming. It was the size of a cathedral, but without that gathering of chinstrap penguins on its flanks it would be hard to get a sense of its size. This image is part of a portfolio of my work that is now on display at London’s Natural History Museum today where I received the great honor last night of a Lifetime Achievement Award from @nhm_wpy, the Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Follow me @fransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom for more images and stories from a lifetime of chronicling our changing planet.
