natgeo Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - For most of their lives, Cicadas live underground as nymphs at depths ranging from about 30 centimetres (0.98 ft) down to 2.5 metres (8.2 ft). In the final stages as a nymph they construct an exit tunnel to the surface and emerge, find a nearby plant and then molt, shedding their exoskeleton (pictured). Photograph taken late one evening from deep in the Bornean rainforest following a few welcomed rest days whilst exploring caves in Mulu National Park, in Sarawak. 5h

natgeo Photo by @thomaspeschak A southern right whale surfs winter storm swells in South Africa's De Hoop Marine Protected Area. Almost hunted to extinction by both shore and ship based whaling, this species has staged a remarkable recovery in South Africa. The population is growing by more than 7% every year and what was once the "right" whale to catch is now the right one for tourists to watch.

natgeo Photo: @randyolson | Women carry bundles of firewood on their heads in the Sudanese desert. In rural African cultures, the responsibility of foraging for firewood usually falls to the women. In Sudan's brutally dry desert, where little vegetation grows, it can take several hours each day to collect enough wood to cook with. @natgeo @theimagereview @thephotosociety #sudan #africa #culture #desert #environment 14h

natgeo Photo by @michaelmelford. This humpback whale swam along side our ship
for about 20 minutes, and then rolled over on its back and, kept
rolling, and swam off. Quite a treat here in the Antarctic peninsula.
The whales have made quite a comeback down here, and we have seen so
many. #antarctica #whales #ice #humpback @natgeocreative

natgeo Photo @ladzinski / While traversing a 13,000 foot ridge in the collegiate mountains in Colorado my real concern was that the surrounding storm above me might blast me off the mountain. The wind was howling and the rocks were making a hauntingly odd crackling sound under the menacing sky. Electricity was in the air and getting down was the priority. Slowly the sky opened up on the western horizon turning the entire scene from grey to gold in an unpredicted serene landscape. I was lucky enough to snap off a dozen or so frames. A few years ago I heard my good friend @daveblackphoto say that light is the greatest influence to a photograph. I couldn't have said it any better. @natgeocreative 17h

natgeo Photograph by @paulnicklen for @natgeo. As a photojournalist I occasionally struggle with the line between unbiased story-telling/journalism and activism. However, in this situation, it is difficult not to have a biased stance especially after spending a summer with these shy and incredibly intelligent animals for a feature story on wolves. Over the next two months, the #BritishColumbia Government is targeting to kill 180 wolves from helicopters while using tax payer dollars. Decades of habitat destruction, hunting and human encroachment have left BC’s mountain caribou on the edge of collapse. Instead of protecting critical food and habitat for caribou, such as the lichen rich interior forests, the BC government has now placed the blame on wolves. Should wolves be killed because of negligence and mismanagement. Killing all the wolves in BC won’t bring the caribou back in the absence of habitat protection. Anytime we remove top predators such as sharks, bears, wolves, lions, and tigers from an ecosystem, we see that ecosystem severely impacted and often collapse. What do you think? #wildlife #nature @thephotosociety @natgeocreative Watch this great film by #sustainableman and the picture will become much more clear. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ysa5OBhXz-Q 18h

natgeo A human remain from the city of #Pompeii which had been buried under 20 ft of volcanic ash from #MtVesuvius The eruption destroyed the city, killing its inhabitants and burying it under tons of ash. Evidence for the destruction originally came from a surviving letter by Pliny the Younger, who saw the eruption from a distance and described the death of his uncle Pliny the Elder, an admiral of the Roman fleet, who tried to rescue citizens. The site was lost for about 1,500 years until its initial rediscovery in 1599 and broader rediscovery almost 150 years later by Spanish engineer Rocque Joaquin de Alcubierre in 1748. The objects that lay beneath the city have been well-preserved for centuries because of the lack of air and moisture. @thephotosociety @robertclarkphoto @natgeo @instituteartist 19h

Rio de Janeiro. Children play on the infamous Ipanema sands. Rio has been a source of several photo projects for me starting with a NatGeo Magazine piece in 2012. Later I did a full on Rio book. Now I am shooting for a zine BeachGames slated for publication this year which I started during the World Cup in 2014. Rio is a stage for all kinds of "games". I am exploring all of them for this zine.

natgeo Image by @franslanting, @thephotosociety, @natgeo

The desert spadefoot toad of central Australia can survive without water for years. It burrows into the ground, secretes a membrane around itself, and goes into the deep sleep of aestivation. But it only takes one rainstorm to wake it up. I photographed this frog as it broke the surface of a patch of wet sand and resumed life. I’ll be telling stories of this image and many others in Holland on Sunday January 25 at 1:00 pm, at the CineMec in Utrecht, at a special National Geographic-World Wildlife Fund presentation. Friends in Holland, please join us! http://www.cinemec.nl/films/fotograaf-frans-lanting-utrecht/

natgeo @Tim Laman photo of sunrise over Green Swamp in the @AustralianWildlifeConservancy Piccaninny Plains Sanctuary. This wetland is the kind of water source and refuge that makes this sanctuary so important for wildlife in the central Cape York Peninsula, especially in the dry season when water is in short supply. Aerial from a helicopter. I flew from our camp to this site with pilot Bungie in the pre-dawn and waited for the sun to pop over the horizon. #sunrise, #Queensland, #CapeYork, #Australia, @thephotosociety, @natgeocreative.

Later I scan through the frames to find the cheetah’s semi-retractable claws and all four feet flying past—amazing animals. Photo by @kengeiger @Canonusa #cheetah #canon @thephotosociety 1d

natgeo @paulnicklen gets up close and personal with a Kermode Bear (also known as a Spirit Bear) in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia. My good friend and guide, Marven Robinson from the Gitga’at First Nation of Hartley Bay introduced me to a bear he knew well, knowing that if we managed to get good pictures for our story in @natgeo then we would be able to bring global attention to an ecosystem that needs protection. Spending time with this bear as it fished and walked through the forest was one of the greatest moments in my life. Thank you @marvenrobinson. The photograph was taken by friend and superstar field companion, @jedweingarten With Pat Freeny and @cristinamittermeier

The man-made mountain and it's outlying structures are one of the most incredible art environments of this scale in America. Leonard died in February of last year, and I have been collecting my images of his life and art to help spread his message as far beyond his life as I can. His one message to the world was simple: "GOD is LOVE." To see more images and video of Leonard and his mountain go to @outsiderbooks and @argonautphoto.y 2d
