Photo by @woods_galimberti @gabrielegalimbertiphoto - Jersey. A guide with Jersey Walk Adventures leads a group of tourists for a “Moonwalk,” on a patch of seabed that can only be explored at low tide. The British crown dependency of Jersey experiences tides of up to ten meters, some of the world’s most dramatic, exposing kilometers of land that are covered by the ocean the rest of the time. #jersey #tide #walk #moonwalk #lowtide #ocean

Video by @joelsartore | Fez, the three-banded armadillo from the Lincoln Children's Zoo ( @lincolnchildrenszoo) searches our photo studio for tasty tidbits such as grubs and other treats. In his native Brazil, he would be bustling about the forest floor searching through leaf litter, dining as he sniffs along with a hard, protective shell on his back. The three-banded armadillo can close its shell the tightest of all of the armadillos, which comes in handy if they run into any predators in the wild. #Follow @joelsartore to see more cool animals! #armadillo

A haven for a photographer and for a bunch of red listed species.

Photo by @stephenwilkes: In 2013, I had the incredible opportunity to capture President Obama's second inauguration. It was an overwhelming day, with estimates of 1 million people in attendance. I spent 20+ hours--from setup to breakdown--above the sea of waving flags in a scissor lift. As planes landed at Ronald Reagan Airport gusts of wind shook the lift, threatening to blur my exposures. The final image was worth the stress and more as I was able to create an image that captures the sentiments of the day, and years, of Obama's continued presidency.

Photo by Corey Arnold @arni_coraldo America's national symbol, the Bald Eagle, is not always the stoic postal service mascot fearlessly plucking salmon from the pristine rivers of Alaska that many of us imagine. I found this eagle scavenging old fish from the deck of a pollock trawler and many others rooting through garbage dumpsters around town. Reality can be easily overshadowed by what we believe to be true. This eagle is not blind but instead captured mid-blink. I'll be spending the next month in the Aleutian Islands exploring the relationship between industry and nature adding to my eagle-centric series #AleutianDream .

In the forest high above the canyons of Utah, Clint Mecham a predator specialist from the State of Utah Dept of Natural Resources, gently lowers a sedated mountain lion onto the forest floor. For more than 30 years he's consistently collected data from lion across the entire state, and collared in excess of 400 mountain lion, allowing both the health and numbers of lion present to be accurately monitored by researchers.

Photo by @FransLanting Flying home to California, I saw more snow cover on the Sierra Nevada than I’ve seen in many years, thanks to the recent storms that have pummeled the state. It’s great for skiers, and great for all the creatures that depend on spring runoff into our streams. The long-term drought prospects may not have changed, but it’s a great relief for the time being.

Photo by @andy_mann // While out searching for new dive sites off Selvagem Pequena Island, a remote archipelago 200 miles off the coast of Western Sahara, we observed this seemingly random wave rise from the depths. A true sea monster. We decided to have a look under it and quickly found an amazing sea-mount full of life. Always expect the unexpected at sea. Photographed on expedition with @natgeopristineseas, whose efforts have officially helped to protect this special place.

Photo by @joelsartore | An eastern mole shows off why he's so good at digging--his giant, paddle-shaped front feet! This little mammal was nursed back to health by Nebraska Wildlife Rehab ( @newildliferehab) in Louisville, Nebraska. He's one of thousands of injured and orphaned native animals saved by this place each and every year. #Follow @joelsartore to see more amazing animals! #PhotoArk #mole #teeth #claws

photo by @chien_chi_chang/ @magnumphotos The time was 1996 and the location Hsinkang, in central Taiwan. Rain or shine, each spring in Taiwan, followers of Taoist saint Matsu make a pilgrimage to commemorate her birthday (she would have been 1062 this year). The procession creeps along from temple to temple on a seven-day, 280-kilometer (174 miles) journey through central Taiwan. Upon reaching their destination, performers wearing lion masks dance in front of the temple. This is one of the images to be exhibited by the RATP (Paris public transportation) in its metro stations and in collaboration with Magnum Photos to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Magnum. The exhibition will start on the 28th of February 2017 and on view for four months. #LionDance #cccontheroad #MagnumPhotos

Photo by @GerdLudwig. On the eve of Russian Orthodox Epiphany, January 19th (as the Russian Orthodox Church follows the Julian Calendar) hundreds of thousands of Russians prepare to do what they do on Epiphany every year. They gather – like here in Moscow - to take a dip in the icy priest-blessed waters. This is believed to cleanse the soul of sins and protect the faithful from evil. According to Orthodox Christian tradition, this January feast day celebrates the baptism of Jesus in the River Jordan. In many places, the first faithful arrive before sunrise and the ceremony continues throughout the day and well into the night. You can find more photographs from Russian Epiphany events at @gerdludwig and on my website: http://www..com/?p=2114 @thephotosociety @natgeocreative @theimagereview #RussianEpiphany #RussianOrthodox #celebration #religion #tradition #iceswimming

Photo by @haarbergphoto (Orsolya Haarberg) Siberian spruce has a slender crown which is an adaptation to protect it from the heavy snowfall it withstands. During the summer, the individual trees blend together into infinite green forests amidst the rolling landscape of Swedish Laponia. In early winter, however, the candle-like crown of the trees becomes distinct against the white snow covering the ground. The low winter Sun casts a beautiful warm light on the highest tree tops while the white snow develops a blue tone on the lower tree crowns and on the shaded forest floor. #Muddus National Park, #Laponia World Heritage Site, #Lapland #Sweden @thephotosociety @natgeocreative

photo by @daviddoubilet A small but mighty Pygmy goby defends its chosen shelter, a discarded glass bottle resting in the silty bottom of Anilao, Philippines. The sloping sea beds near Anilao are a barren empty seascape with little cover for marine creatures trying to escape predation. Any discarded object or natural debris becomes priceless real estate. Nearly 102 million people live in this island nation defined by the sea. The Philippines are a cornerstone of the Coral Triangle, the richest marine diversity on the planet, geographically defined by Phillippines,Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. More marine stories to come from current assignment Inside The Coral Triangle with @natgeo. #ocean #Philippines #coraltriangle #life #laugh #hope #home for #moreocean follow @daviddoubilet

Photo by @stephenwilkes: A small moment of a much larger image. I was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to create a Day to Night of President Obama's 2012 Inauguration. I witnessed a sea of waving flags, cheers of proud constituents, and the pride of the nation --all illuminated by a bright and colorful sunrise--I am so honored to have been part of such a momentus day in history. #Inauguration #PresidentObama #WashingtonDC #America #BryceWolkowitzGallery #PeterFettermanGallery #MonroeGallery #DayToNight #StephenWilkes

Video by @salvarezphoto (Stephen Alvarez) In slow motion they are almost graceful! Armadillos are a recent addition to life here on the Cumberland Plateau. They first appeared about 4 years ago and now seeing them out is fairly common. I was out last week enjoying a bike ride in the temperate weather when I saw this one by the side of the trail and followed it through the woods. #slowmotion #armadillo

Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio The black volcanic sand of Khalaktyrsky Beach in the Kamchatka peninsular, Russian Far East, with Cape Nalychevo on the horizon. The iron, vanadium and titanium-rich sand lies 20m (65ft) deep and the beach stretches for 30km (19miles). Towards the end of the Second World War Kamchatka and its beaches served as a launch site for the invasion of the Kuril Islands and after the war the Soviet military designated the area a military zone: it remained closed to Soviet citizens until 1989 and to foreigners until 1990.
