Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Pictured here, Carlsbad Caverns Park Guide admires stunning cloud-like cave formations known as mammillaries. These formed underwater at times when the lake was much higher than it is today. The formations that look like lion tails (i.e., white stalactites with orange bulbs on the end) formed close to the water surface, with the white part being above water and the orange part being just below the water surface. This contrast between the orange and white formations can give you an idea of where the level of the lake was in the past. Lechuguilla is a very beautiful and highly protected cave. Access is very strongly controlled and only given to experienced caves with specific scientific or exploration goals within certain parts of the cave. This particular part of the cave had been ‘out of bounds’ for nearly 25 years. Lechuguilla features strongly in the episode Genesis of the @natgeochannel documentary ‘One Strange Rock’ - Check it out! @natgeocreative


“When people show you who they are, believe them.” This is the advice singer, songwriter and now coach on “The Voice” (@nbcthevoice) Kelly Clarkson (@kellyclarkson) wishes she could have told herself back in 2002, when she was coming up in the music business. “I love my team,” says Kelly. “It’s nice to be able to work with artists who are in the same shoes that I was once in. I would have loved to have had someone who understood how to navigate not only a competition but the industry after, helping me along the way.”
We’re behind the scenes with Kelly at “The Voice.” Tune in to our story now. 🎶

Mount Ijen, on the Island of Java, Indonesia, hosts one of the last remaining active sulfur mines in the world. Since 1968, the sulfur miners have ventured into this unpredictable labyrin th of gas clouds and superheated fumaroles to extract “devil’s gold” and carry it back down the mountain.

Top Shot: Sleeping Beauties | Photograph by Fabrice Guerin (@fabriceguerin)
#YourShotPhotographer Fabrice Guerin captured this peaceful moment while on a scientific underwater mission and observed sperm whales half sleeping. He writes, “Nature provides us beautiful surprises. To meet the giant of the oceans is an unforgettable moment. Sperm whales are able to half-sleep in a vertical position. The scientist swam several times among them without disturbing them. He swam from one sperm whale to another like a guest to say hello. Amazing moment!” This photo was selected for April 20, 2018 Daily Dozen.

Top Shot features the photo with the most votes from the previous day’s Daily Dozen, 12 photos chosen by the Your Shot editors from thousands of recent uploads. Our community votes for their favorite photo from the selection, and the Top Shot is showcased on the @natgeoyourshot Instagram account.


“So apparently I'm on the cover of a magazine! I mean, I'll be honest, I would rather eat the magazine than show it off in photos, but my mom on the other hand...#dogmomAF” writes @mr_jack_the_lab
