Good Morning | Photograph by Varun Aditya (@varun.aditya)
“When the sun began rising magnificently and painting the sky with golden hues one morning at Maasai Mara, we spotted a lion pride,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Varun Aditya. “Like a gift that was waiting to be received, the lion gave me a perfect morning stretch with a big yawn. Like a ball of light that carefully passed through the edges of the lion’s body, nature perfectly outlined the stretch with rim light. As I observed this beautiful moment, I realized that there can be never be a better artist that nature!”

“The light outlining this big cat having a yawn makes a comical moment come to life in such a dramatic way. I’m laughing but also in awe of the gorgeous golden light! Nice!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

Photo by @acacia.johnson | A brilliant day near Pedersen Glacier in Alaska's Kenai Fjords National Park. Home to calving glaciers, vibrant marine life, jagged mountains and coastal rainforests, Kenai Fjords is paradise for nature lovers. To get there, take a boat from the town of Seward. Follow me at @acacia.johnson for more adventures from Alaska and beyond! #alaska #kenaifjordsnationalpark #glaciers


Photo by Joel Sartore @joelsartore | In honor of World Penguin Day, a rookery at South Georgia Island’s St. Andrews Bay is one of the largest king penguin colonies in the world, with 100,000 nesting pairs. King penguins are the closest relatives of emperor penguins, and while similar in appearance, kings are thinner and the coloration of their ear patches differs from that of emperors. To see an up-close shot of this species follow me, @joelsartore. #penguin #kingpenguin #photoark #standrewsbay

This desert beach is a pastel dream come true. “The sound of the crashing waves, the immense sand, the shades that touch the water and the sand are always a great inspiration,” says photographer Ana Marques (@anamarques210376). #WHPplanetearth

#followmeto 🇬🇷 Mykonos with @natalyosmann. Summer is approaching and we are remembering the vibes from the first time we went to this amazing island. Can’t wait to come back there. Thanks to the best hotel there for hosting us @cavotagoomykonos . This is not an ad - we really like this place :)!


#FotoDelDía | "La alimentación por red de burbujas es una técnica única empleada por las ballenas jorobadas, en la que un grupo de ballenas nada en un círculo cada vez más pequeño haciendo burbujas debajo de un banco de peces", cuenta el fotógrafo de @natgeoyourshot, Vadim Balakin, quien obtuvo esta foto aérea en la costa de la Antártida. "Esta columna de burbujas que se contrae rodea al banco de peces y los obliga a subir".
