Photo by @BabakTafreshi | Swipe left to see this panoramic night view in Persepolis, Iran. A griffin statue (Homa bird in Persian mythology) appears against the backdrop of the Apadana palace and the Gate of Xerxes on the right. The griffin is a legendary creature in myths, part lion and part eagle. Persepolis is a 2500-year-old World Heritage Site of ancient palaces and temples near Shiraz. It was the ceremonial capital of the Persian Empire during the Achaemenid dynasty. Explore more of The World at Night with me, @babaktafreshi. #persepolis #shiraz #worldheritage


Photos by Carlton Ward Jr. @carltonward | The hard line between forest and dirt on an area cleared for development in eastern Naples. Last month when driving to service a camera trap set for panthers at nearby @corkscrewswamp, I was drawn to the side of the road by swallow-tailed kites foraging among piles of toppled trees. Based on the time of the year, I knew the kites were probably nesting in other trees nearby. Next year when they come back from their annual migration to South America, how many other trees will be gone in the South Florida breeding grounds that are so important to their epic life journey? These drone shots could be a kite’s-eye view. Florida loses more than 100,000 acres of natural and rural land to development each year. Time to make land conservation a priority and keep the Florida Wildlife Corridor connected while we still have a chance. #FloridaWildlifeCorridor @fl_wildcorridor #floridawild #keepflwild #pathofthepanther @insidenatgeo


Spring forward and bounce back like Katelyn Ohashi (@katelyn_ohashi), the recently graduated UCLA gymnast who’s giving us a boost of motivation with her gravity-defying flips and her sparkling personality. 🤸‍♀️✨ “Gymnastics has taught me to keep striving for goals no matter how many hardships you go through,” says the 22-year-old athlete, whose perfect-score floor routine went viral earlier this year.

#FotoDelDía | "En mis viajes, hay lugares que tienen aspectos muy diferentes en diferentes momentos del día", dice el fotógrafo de @natgeoyourshot, Garrine Tsang. "Ese es el caso de Canary Spring, parte de la terraza principal de las fuentes termales Mammoth en Yellowstone. Su descarga intermitente y el aire fresco de la mañana hacen que el vapor y la actividad térmica sean más prominentes al amanecer en comparación con el atardecer".
