Madame Berthe's mouse lemur, the smallest primate on earth (30 grams, or 1.1 ounces!!!!), hunting for insects in the Kirindi forest, the only place it lives. Lemurs can only be found in Madagascar, but in an astonishing diversity of more than 100

Image by @paulnicklen for @natgeo and @sea_legacy with @cristinamittermeier. An animal requires habitat in order to survive, and we cannot understand a species without understanding his ecosystem. The spirit bear, a ‘white’ black bear that is very rare, inhabits a lush coastal rainforest in British
The family minivan shares space with corn set out to dry in the patio of a farmhouse, near Lijiang, Yunnan, China, circa 2006. In mountainous country like this most farming is still done by hand. Photograph by George Steinmetz while flying a motorized paraglider #unpublished @thephotosociety @natg

Photo @ladzinski / Any rain is good news, especially when you're experiencing the third year of the worst drought in the past century. Such is the case with California. I shot this at sunset about a week ago on a quick stop into Malibu. The moody evening was perfect for a long exposure while I watch
Image by @paulnicklen for @natgeo and @sea_legacy. Species are shaped over time to thrive in a certain environment. The evolution of traits perfected for the cold marries the penguin to its polar ecosystem. While penguins are often portrayed on land, waddling about and huddling together to keep warm

Photo by @vincentjmusi I get a lot of emails looking for guidance on how to become a photographer for National Geographic Magazine. The truth is I don't know. I've made every wrong move and mistake in the book but have always felt that you can't learn from your mistakes if you don't make any. So he

Three male giraffes fight it out in a head butting match in the @Londolozi Private Game Reserve, a part of the #SabiSands Private Game Reserve, situated on the western border of the #Kruger National Park in #SouthAfrica. The normally placid animals head butt each other in a show
