The Full Moon rising in twilight above oceanfront in the North Shore of Boston. The moon is super large due to the use of long telephoto lens. It “feels” even larger in this image due to recognizable objects in the foreground, a couple of miles away from the camera. It’s red due to atmospheric refraction, more effective near the horizon. The next full moon is on March 1st. Enjoy the view!

A male Alpine ibex stands in front of Mont Aiguille in the French Alps during the rutting season. #YourShotPhotographer Jean-Michel Pouy says, “These animals are not dangerous and we can approach them without danger. However, it is always impressive to approach the big males very closely." This photo was selected for the February 22, 2018 Daily Dozen by Your Shot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams).

Photo @ladzinski / A young #coyote, on the prowl for a meal and wearing a nasty injury on its hind leg. You have to be tough to make it in the wild kingdom, an injury like this can mean death to the animal if the infection spreads and/or it hinders movement and the ability to hunt. I took this photo yesterday morning in #RockyMountainNationalPark, it was -3 Fahrenheit, a very cold morning to say the least. An exposed wound like this is highly susceptible to frostbite, hoping this little guy here makes it.

【植物獵人】

植物學家們擔心,人類正在導演有史以來最大一次生物滅絕。

全世界超過 25 萬種的開花植物有60%以上集中在熱帶雨林,但每年卻以 10 個台灣大小的速率消失中。

為了保存熱帶植物,清大教授李家維建立了「辜嚴倬雲植物保種中心」,以活體保存方式在台灣打造了現代方舟,短短9年來,已蒐集近3萬種熱帶和亞熱帶植物,成為全球數量第一的活體植物蒐藏庫。

Sixteen-year-old Tess Ledeux (@tessledeux) still remembers her first backcountry ski experience in her hometown in the French Alps: “I was following much older friends and decided to drop off a small cliff with them,” says Tess, who was 9 years old at the time. “The result was a broken nose, but it didn’t stop my love of jumps and tricks!” ⛷️
Tess is the youngest French athlete representing her country at the Winter Olympics this year in #Pyeongchang2018. “It’s just so cool to see all these athletes from so many different countries and cultures, all reunited by their love for winter sports,” says the slopestyle skier, a sport that combines downhill skiing with terrain park obstacles, like jumps and rails. “After the Olympics, I’ll probably take a short break from skiing. But I’ll soon get back to practicing. I can’t go too long without it!” 🇫🇷
The Winter Olympics (@olympics) are taking place in Pyeongchang, South Korea, February 9-25. Tune in as we spotlight competing athletes from around the world.
