View natgeo's Instagram On this day in 1697 one of Italy’s greatest painters was born, Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto.  His paintings have inspired generations, and were daily inspiration when we created the Day to Night Venice photographs.  Canaletto is known for his extraordinary cityscapes capturing intimate city views of Venice.  In honor his birthday, I wanted to share my photograph of Campanile di San Marco, Venice. #canaletto #italy #venice #painting  #art #photography #daytonight #stephenwilkes #birthday #campaniledisanmarco 1629034442574959092_787132

In 1980 I was photographing in Oaxaca, Mexico with its generous color palette evidenced in the buildings and the clothing of its inhabitants.  I stopped each day at an interior market where I saw this wall and stayed to make pictures of passersby such as this woman carrying a baby. As people passed I watched how they fit into the seemingly random pattern of the painted wall with its large white space that proved to be a useful background.

#followme @williamalbertallard for more images from Oaxaca and other assignments over five decades.

View natgeo's Instagram Video by @bertiegregory. A bizarre looking Porites coral and a school of anthias (the bright orange fish). The diversity (the number of different species) of coral reefs is mind blowing. It is estimated that whilst they only occupy 1% of the ocean floor, they are home to more than 25% of the ocean's biodiversity! Coral reefs all around the world are in trouble but why should we care? Well, aside from just being awesome, they provide so many functions that are vital to human existence including coastline storm protection, fisheries production, tourism and climate regulation.

View natgeo's Instagram Photograph by @brentstirton | Poachers killed this black rhinocerous for its horn with high-caliber bullets at a water hole in South Africa’s Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. They entered the park illegally, likely from a nearby village, and are thought to have used a silenced hunting rifle. Once the most numerous rhino species, black rhinos are now critically endangered due to poaching and the illegal international trade in rhino horn, one of the world’s most corrupt illegal wildlife networks.

View natgeo's Instagram Photo by @chamiltonjames \ Charlie Hamilton James. A rabbit bounds through a camera trap near Big Piney, Wyoming. The camera trap was set up to photograph animals moving through the sage brush desert - specifically for bobcats. I generally leave the cameras out for months in order to get images of as many different species as possible. Yesterday I checked this camera and I've clearly set it up in an area very popular with rabbits and not bobcats as I seem to have hundreds of images of them.

View natgeo's Instagram Video by @joelsartore | Northern white-faced owls like this one at the @cincinnatizoo are native to dry woodland forests and the scattered trees in the savannah of Northern and Central Africa. When encountering a large predator in nature, these owls will attempt to blend in with their environment by pulling their feathers inward and narrowing their eyes to slits in order to appear more like a broken tree branch. However, if they are approached by a creature their own size or just slightly larger, they will spread their wings wide in hopes that their enlarged appearance will scare their attacker away.
Owls’ eyes are fixed in position so they are unable to move them like humans can. In situations where an owl needs to analyze its surroundings, their extremely flexible necks compensate for their lack of eye movement. Owls can rotate their heads 270 degrees around and almost upside down in order to check its surroundings. 1627656204640545785_787132

Fish sweep over a garden of hard corals on a seamount in a remote part of Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Coral is susceptible to changes in seawater temperature and salinity, and presently nearly half of the ocean’s shallow corals have been degraded or killed. Creating large marine protected areas that keep ecosystems intact and resilient has helped combat these adverse effects. Marine conservation equals climate stability.
