After three minutes of holding her breath, a freediver rockets to the surface for air, backlit by lights on the bottom of Cenote Nah Yah in Mexico. Freedivers swim without oxygen tanks, training to hold their breath for longer and longer stretches.

Video by @bertiegregory | A king penguin chick wrapped up warm in its unbelievably fluffy coat on St Andrews Bay, South Georgia Island. King penguin chicks take over a year to fledge so they must be capable of surviving the brutal Antarctic winter. Whilst this fluffy brown coat keeps them warm, they possess another key adaptation. During particularly bad years, winter food is so scarce that adults are forced to stay out at sea hunting for months on end. As a result, the chicks possess the ability to go without food for over 5 months! Shot for a new @natgeo online series coming soon. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife.


For David Beckham (@davidbeckham), the joys of fatherhood are the simple things: getting up with his kids in the morning, walking them to school, playing football in the park. “I’m so proud of each of my four children,” says David, whose eldest son Brooklyn (@brooklynbeckham) was born when David was 23. “Each with their own personality from such an early age, they are incredible individuals in their own right.”
David’s top advice for new parents is to be present. “It is the greatest gift you can give your children,” he says. “For me, and many of the mums and dads I’ve spoken to about parenting over the years, it comes down to two things: love and fear. It’s these emotions that push us to achieve more for our children every day. My work with UNICEF (@unicef) reminds me that parents all over the world experience these same emotions, no matter on their circumstance.”
Sunday marks #FathersDay in many countries around the world. Tune in to our story now, because David and Brooklyn are at home helping us celebrate.

The light pollution of large cities are immense, often visible from a long distance. On this November evening I was enjoying the view of the Milky Way from Death Valley National Park in California, also a designated Dark Sky Park. But to my surprise toward southwest the yellow light dome of the Greater Los Angeles Area with population of about 20 million was still visible in the image from a distance of over 270 km (170 mi). In the foreground is Badwater area, marking the lowest point in the entire North America, with an elevation of 282 ft below sea level (-86 meters). Follow me @babaktafreshi for more stories under stars.
