natgeo Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz / @thephotosociety Sunbathers float effortlessly at the artificial beaches of Ein Bokek resort, on the Israeli side of the Dead Sea. A favorite pass-time here is floating on one's back in the water to experience the lake's hyper-saline buoyancy. The wall in the upper right corner is for unclothed sunbathing. For view of that go to @geosteinmetz #DesertAirBook 5h

natgeo Photo by @christianziegler. First signs of spring arrive in Scotland. While the trees and shrubs still stand without leaves, the exotic looking flowers of the invasive American skunk cabbage, a member of the arum family, make an appearance. Looking beautiful the large yellow flowers smell strong and strangely kind of skunk-like, to attract pollinating flies and beetles. 7h

natgeo Water is a Right! Essential for all living beings on the planet.
We as humans need to use this need wisely.
Provide clean water to millions of people on the planet that lack this essential life giving and life sustaining liquid.

This is the opener of my Irrawaddy River story @natgeo

A bottlenose dolphin ‘crater feeds’ in the Bahamas. In this location, this species of dolphin has created a unique feeding strategy in which they use echolocation (sonar) to find fish hiding beneath the sand. Once a fish is found, they invert their bodies and dig down to grab the fish in their mouth. One of the ways researchers know that dolphins are smart is by studying their creative feeding strategies. Check out the May issue of @natgeo for the latest info in our story about dolphin intelligence!

natgeo Photo by @chamiltonjames (Charlie Hamilton James) European Griffon Vultures fight and feed over the remains of several hundred dead rabbits near Valderrobes, Spain. The location is popular with vultures as it is a 'vulture restaurant' where the birds get fed daily. Some vulture restaurants play a vital role keeping threatened populations of vultures from declining by supplying the birds with safe food. Vultures have declined catastrophically across Africa and Asia in the last decade due to poisoning. European vultures have also suffered due to stricter rules surrounding the disposal of dead livestock - which have historically played a significant role in their diet. The dead rabbits that feed these vultures are the by-product of human consumption - the vultures get the left overs. Vultures will be featured in the October issue of National Geographic Magazine. 18h

natgeo Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - Currently on Stromboli in the Tyrrhenian Sea waiting for the volcano to erupt. Although one of the most active volcanoes in the world, with constant minor eruptions, right now she appears somewhat quiet. Stromboli has been in almost continuous eruption for the past 2,000 years. The most recent major eruption was on 13 April 2009. Waiting at the ready... 24h

natgeo Photo by @petekmuller. Boats arrive into the main port in #Goma, Democratic Republic of #Congo at dusk. Goma sits along the shores of Lake #Kivu, one of Central Africa's Great Lakes, which spans the borders of #DRC and #Rwanda. #Lake Kivu is vast, fresh water lake with a surface area of 1,040 square miles (2,700 sq km). It contains high levels of methane, carbon dioxide and other gases caused by significant volcanic activity in the area. The volatile chemical dynamics in the lake limits the number of species that can survive in it. I and others often swim in cleaner areas, however, caution is necessary as the possibility of encountering gas clouds carries a risk of asphyxiation. #Africa #bluehour 1d

natgeo Photo by @argonautphoto (Aaron Huey). The view from my sleeping bag looking up at the night sky, from under a cliff at the bottom of the #GrandCanyon, in Arizona. Despite its natural grandeur, development pressures are growing on all sides of this National Park, looking for ways to turn this beauty into cash. As President Roosevelt said over 100 years ago, “Leave it as it is.” 1d

A trio of spinner dolphins playing a game with tree leaves off Kona, Hawaii. I went into this little bay early one morning and found the dolphins socializing, with several of them playing a game of picking up leaves that fall into the water from trees near the beach. The dolphins grab the leaf with their tail or dorsal and pectoral fins, swim with it for a while, then drop it allowing another dolphin to catch it. Game play like this is one of the behaviors researchers study to better understand dolphin intelligence. The May issue of @natgeo features a cover story about dolphin cognition.
For more dolphin and ocean wildlife photos follow @BrianSkerry.
