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.

Photos by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) | In August 2017, 49 years after being discovered, cave explorers reached a depth of -2,212m (7,257ft) in Veryovkina [cave] located in the Caucasus Mountains and set a new record for world’s deepest cave.

In September 2018, @shonephoto joined members of the Perovo Speleo Caving Team where he wanted to capture the work of the explorers as they pushed the boundaries of exploration deep beneath the earth.

It took four days of abseiling (repelling) and thrutching through tight meandering passages to reach the bottom. The team then spent a week camped at -2,100m from where they made ‘day’ trips to the bottom.

On day 11, things changed dramatically when a flood pulse hit the cave. The team waited at camp as the rumbling sound of a freight train getting louder and louder made its way through the inky blackness above. It hit the explorers and continued downwards. After a few hours everything started bubbling and gurgling. The water rose so fast, the team barely had time to get kitted up and out of the way. They left all the non-essential gear, including @shonephoto camera equipment. He took his precious memory cards that stored these photos showing the cave before the flood. The last person had to swim over the tent at camp to escape. The shafts and passages became a fierce torrent of water that was difficult to find air space to breath in. In total the water rose 130m above the base level. Read more from this harrowing story on @NatGeo . Photography for this expedition was supported by a grant from the National Geographic Society.

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.”

On the Brink of Extinction | Photograph by Achim Stoeckinger

“In the past century, the cheetah population has declined from over 100,000 animals to about 7,100 adults. Today the cheetah is racing against extinction,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Achim Stoeckinger. “Do you see the wild soul behind these beautiful eyes? Support conservation efforts for African wildlife to prevent the extinction of these and other unique species.” This photo was selected for the October 5, 2018 edition of our Photos of the Week series.

“This is one beautiful big cat portrait. I love being able to see this magnificent cat so up close with amazing detail. Awesome work filling your frame with the cheetah to create a clean frame so all we focus on is the cat’s intense gaze. Nicely done!” — @natgeoyourshot Associate Photo Editor Kristen McNicholas (@kemcnicholas)

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.
