Photo by @jenniferhayesig A mushroom shaped iceberg glistens in the sun drenched sea off Ilulissat Western Greenland. The name of the town literally means "iceberg" in Kalaallisut (a dialect of Greenlandic language). This iceberg was born in the the Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most active glaciers in the Northern Hemisphere. Greenland's icecap contains +10% of the worlds freshwater supply and is melting at unprecedented pace as temperatures continue to rise. Icebergs are temporary sculptures in the sea, I photographed this formation last week and as I swam away to photograph a tabular berg the mushroom shaped iceberg broke up and vanished.

Next to the beautiful black sand beach of Punalu'u, Big Island, I found this impressive sea of water hyacinths. While everybody was taking pictures to the beach, I couldn't care less and I was staring at this. What natural beauty impressed you so much that you still can't forget that feeling?
Zach Lavine Stat Predictions!
▪This is assuming Wade gets bought out before the start of the season
▪Also this is assuming Lavine plays more than 50 games
▪Lavine has improved each and every year greatly and he's a gym rat so I don't think his injury will set him back
▪Also this is first year as the first option instead of the third so his scoring will go up
▪Comment how many you think he'll average⬇️
En busca del mejor macaron en París: Sadaharu Aoki, pastelero afincado en París desde hace años y que aporta el toque exótico con sabores como el sésamo negro, el té matcha, o el té Hojicha, además de hacerlos de wasabi, tomate, regaliz, tonka, anís, albahaca o canela...
Sus macarons son geniales, algo más crujientes que los de Pierre Hermé y se encuentran entre los mejores macarons de París.

Very excited that in the coming days National Geographic will be publishing online my photographs of the complex relationship between saltwater crocodiles and people that was shot over nearly 4 years, starting in 2013. It was a hard story to tell because of some of what I saw and it will undoubtedly make some angry and sad because there are hunting photos and hunting is controversial. But I implore you to consider how the hunting is done and how it is involved in the successful conservation of crocodiles in Australia . I have plans to go back and keep documenting how the lives of crocs and people intertwine in Australia but for now enjoy the upcoming article and keep your eyes out for brand new video of wild crocodiles on the nat geo instagram stories. I can't tell you exactly why I love crocodiles because there are too many reasons. For example, look how this crocodile, aptly Named jaws, disappears under the surface , scarcely creating a ripple. Is there are animal out there that is seemingly as choreographed as a crocodile? I'm not sure there is. Please head over to @tbfrost to see more videos and photos that didn't make the cut where I'll also be sharing stories about why i decided to do this story and what it took to make this happen. #followme @tbfrost
Photo by @andreabruce : Hello, I’m posting images from the August Natgeo story on sanitation. More specifically, open defecation. An uncomfortable subject…but important.
Without proper sanitation, good water is hard to fine. In India, most villages receive their water from wells which are often contaminated through open defecation.
Gram Vikas is an aid organization that works with villages to supply toilets and tap water, like this tap in Bhubaneswar, India. If a household splits the cost of building a toilet, Gram Vikas gives them a faucet of running water inside their home. #india#sanitation @noorimages
Photo by @FransLanting Two orphaned orangutans cling to each other in northern Borneo. Like humans, they need affection and care from their mothers in order to become healthy adults. Orangutans are the last great apes that survive outside of Africa. They live only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, and they are endangered due to the massive destruction of their forest habitat. Baby orangs are also victims of the illegal pet trade—captured by poachers who kill their mothers to reach them. It is imperative that we protect the forests orangutans depend upon to insure that our next of kin on the family tree of life will be with us beyond our lifetime. I welcome you to support the organizations that are in the front lines of protecting them, such as the World Wildlife Fund and Wild Aid. I share this image in honor of World Orangutan Day, Saturday August 19. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of endangered animals around the world.
