Mala Mala Game Reserve

Photo by @russ_wildlife || Lion cubs have to be the cutest? Our days have been long and hot but being around these little ones is always a treat and every second worth it, more to come from the field as we are out filming lions on assignment for @natgeowild at @malamalagamereserve Follow @russ_wildlife for more moments in the wild.

Wapusk National Park

Photo by @daisygilardini | Mother polar bears in the Hudson Bay region exit their maternity dens with their newborn in February March. Once cubs leave the warmth of the den, they have to face frigid temperatures that can easily drop to -50C° with wind chill. Mother bears are particularly attentive and caring for the little ones while heading to Hudson Bay to hunt seals. They often stop to nurse and rest. In the event of a storm, they dig small “day dens” in snowdrifts to shelter their cubs from the elements. Follow me @daisygilardini for more images and behind-the-scenes stories.

Nautilus Liveaboards

Photo @filipe_deandrade // Great White Sharks gather around the island of Guadalupe in Mexico to hunt Seals and Sea Lions. When the Seals leave the safety of the island to go hunt, the Sharks stalk them from the deep and use the element of surprise to make a kill at the surface. This eternal dance between predator and prey has been playing out in our oceans for millions of years and its because of the Sharks that we humans have a clean and balanced oceans. Protect Sharks, protect everything that falls below them on the food chain. I took this shot aboard the @nautilus_liveaboards while on assignment for an upcoming Shark story. Eco-tourism has proved that Sharks are and when you protect natural resources the economy and ecology of an area thrives. Follow @filipe_deandrade for more wildlife adventures.

Photo @jasonedwardsng It’s always about the light; saturated or thin, high or low, and then comes the colour. Lilac-breasted Roller are one of the most splendidly feathered birds in the world. When you have a setting sun and a bird perched before a late afternoon thunderstorm you just know the scene is going to sing! . Please join me @jasonedwardsng for images and stories from my National Geographic assignments. .

Photo by @bertiegregory // A new born harp seal pup on an ice floe in the Gulf of St Lawrence, Quebec, Canada. After finding an unfrozen placenta on the ice, we knew nearby there must be a pup only minutes old. After rounding a big chunk of ice we found this tiny little pup with its mother. Barely able to hold its own head up, it was certainly one the cutest things I’ve ever seen! The mother will suckle this pup for just 10 to 14 days. They will then abandon the pups and head north. To see these amazing animals in action, check out my online series, ‘Wild_Life: The Big Freeze’. Available on National Geographic Youtube and at Follow @bertiegregory for more on the series.

Kamchatka Peninsula

Photo by @daisygilardini | Grizzly bears are omnivorous. Their diet includes food of both plant and animal origin, which means their diet is as varied as the human diet. They eat grass, berries, roots, fungi, and seeds. They’re not hunters per se, but they are opportunistic meat eaters. They scavenge dead animals and eat insects. They will occasionally kill newborn, injured, or elderly ungulates. During the salmon run they like to fish, to build up the fat reserves needed for winter hibernation. Follow me @daisygilardini for more images and behind-the-scenes stories.

Nautilus Liveaboards

Photo @filipe_deandrade // A Great White Shark comes blasting through my frame after a full on breach. The power, speed, intelligence and resiliency of these Sharks makes them one of the most capable predators in our oceans. The fact they they are drivers of evolution and keep the balance by removing the sick, dying and dead is what makes them important for our oceans. Taken aboard the @nautilus_liveaboards in Guadalupe, Mexico. Follow @filipe_deandrade for more wildlife adventures.


📸 by @alexbraczkowski A young Chacma baboon sits under the arms of its mother near Shingwedzi, Kruger National Park. I saw two similarly sized infants like this one this week along the dry riverbed of Shingwedzi. At this time of the year it is incredibly dry in this part of Africa, water is restricted to small pools (often dug by African elephants) and temperatures soar into the late 30’s (C). Baboons like these will feed on whatever roots, grass seeds (and the odd mopane leaf 🍃) until the rains come around late November.

South Africa

Photo by @Shannon__Wild // 40,000 muscles ... can you imagine having to master that many just in your nose? Now consider that the human body only has 639!

Falkland Islands

Photo by @DaisyGilardini | I am not a big flash fan but occasionally, when really necessary, I use a bit of fill under-exposed flash. I always pay attention to the animal reaction and if I see any negative impact I stop and look for an alternative light solution. On a beautiful evening at Volunteer Point in the Falkland Islands I decided to try a bit of fill flash with this couple of King penguins. It is extremely challenging to get it right because their shiny belly feathers are highly reflective and it is super easy to “burn out” the whites and consequently all the details. Follow me @DaisyGilardini for more images and behind-the-scenes stories.

Kruger National Park

Video 🎥 by @alexbraczkowski A breeding herd of African elephants walk across a large dry river bed in the Shingwedzi region of South Africa’s Kruger National Park. The Kruger is a national park where elephants are well protected (there are about 17000 that live there), and one of the only places in Africa that didn’t feel the onslaught of ivory poaching between 2007-2014 (its estimated that Africa lost 144000 elephants in this short period). It is refreshing to see places like this still exist in Africa 🐘🐘 follow me @alexbraczkowski for more shots of wildlife around Africa 🐆 . . . . .
