Go With the FloeWalruses on an ice floe off of Kvitøya (White Island) in Norway’s Svalbard archipelago return the gaze of Natgeo Archives member Christian Aslund’s camera lens. These animals are most often found near the Arctic Circle, an environment to which they’re perfectly suited, thanks to their blubbery bodies, ice-piercing tusks, and ability to slow their heartbeat to withstand the freezing water temperatures.

Pride and Power To National Geographic Archives member Bjorn Persson, the majestic pose struck by this lion in Tanzania's Serengeti National Park recalls a scene in a well-known movie. “When I saw this big male appearing on the top of the rock,” says Persson, “I immediately connected it to the The Lion King scene, and I also felt it was one of the best photo opportunities I had ever had. The composition, the light, the background, and everything came together in what is probably my best picture ever. The pride and power of these magnificent creatures really shine through in its pose and expression.” Photograph by Bjorn Persson, National Geographic Archives. _______________________________________________ #nature #animals #wild #animal #wildlifephotography #photooftheday #bird #travel #instagood #naturelovers #beautiful #love #birds #photography #picoftheday #outdoors #adventure #instanature #cute #landscape #naturephotography #art #naturelover #summer #forest #africa #canon #nikon #natgeo #macro

The Columbia River Gorge, he says, is now like "a scene out of the apocalypse."

Gentle Observer. A young humpback meets the lucky photographer’s gaze in the waters around Vava‘u, Tonga. Mother humpback whales and their young swim close together, even touching one another often with their flippers in apparent gestures of affection. “We had been observing this young calf … for perhaps 10 minutes when decided to leave, mum’s side and swim over,” Archives photographer Michael Smith says. “I could clearly see beautiful eye staring right into my soul.” Photograph by Michael Smith, National Geographic Archives. _______________________________________________ #nature #animals #wild #animal #wildlifephotography #photooftheday #bird #travel #instagood #naturelovers #beautiful #love #birds #photography #picoftheday #outdoors #adventure #instanature #cute #landscape #naturephotography #art #naturelover #summer #forest #africa #canon #nikon #natgeo #macro
