Photo by @taylorglenn | The man facing the camera uses a soda bottle to measure as he fills our tank along the border of Colombia and Venezuela. Cheap black market petrol from Venezuela comes in across the border. The streets of this frontier town were filled with barrels and jugs of gasoline; vendors haggled over passing vehicles to try to sell their product.

Photo by @PaulNicklen | An orca corrals a school of herring underneath the surface of an icy fjord off the coast of northern Norway. Lofoten, Vesterålen, and Senja make up a chain of islands where, long ago, glaciers created fjords, cutting the land into a series of inlets bordered by steep cliffs. The continental shelf off the coast here is very narrow. In some places it stretches for only a few kilometers, in others for some 35 to 40 kilometers, and in others it suddenly drops off, the depth of the sea plunging from a few hundred to a few thousand meters. This is one reason why these islands are so special. Water rich with nutrients from the deep Atlantic flows up into the sun and blossoms outward. It is the lifeblood of the marine ecosystem here on which humans have long depended.

photo_library Photos by @babaktafreshi | The setting moon on this September night was breathtaking. I captured this reflection on the Mediterranean's calm waters from the hilltop vineyards in Cinque Terre (swipe to see the wide-angle view). Italy is one of the hardest hit nations in the current pandemic. I hope this view brings a moment of peace and hope. ⁣#italy #cinqueterre #moonlight #twanight

Photo by @tasneemalsultan | I drove past this man in Taif, Saudi Arabia, only a month ago. I remember thinking that we are social creatures and wondering how this man could survive living alone for weeks, with only his animals for company. The worldwide quarantine left a reply.

Photo by @joshuacogan | After a long, rainy day the sun breaks below the cloud line in the National Bison Range in Charlo, Montana. Before being hunted to near extinction by settlers moving out West, Bison were believed to number in the tens of millions in the United States. Now there are estimated to be more than 500,000 bison worldwide, but only 15,000 of those are considered wild.

Photo by @fdilekuyar | While visiting the upper parts of the Başkonuş Plateau, we encountered this incredible view. The villager said that he found the baby deer injured and put it under protection and healed it. The baby deer followed its caregiver everywhere, like a pet. Although the villager takes the animal with him to collect wood to get used to nature, the baby deer seems to have no intention of leaving him for now.

Photo by @bertiegregory | Having recently broken out of the den with its mother, this three-month-old polar bear cub was unbelievably cute. Although it looks small here, it was born much smaller. The polar bear’s active gestation period of just 60 days means cubs come out the size of a squirrel and weigh less than two pounds (one kilogram). This cub seemed to enjoy playing with the snowballs created by its mother as she dug out a hole for them to rest in.

Photo by @stephen_matera | First light warms up Mount Rainier at sunrise in mid-August. At almost 49 degrees above the Equator, the Cascade Range in Washington sees early sunrises in the summer, which makes for an early start to get shots like this. But the payoff is worth the effort!

Photo by Cristina Mittermeier @Mitty | Oh, the joys of a dirt bath! I photographed this Johnny rook, or caracara, on a remote peri-Antarctic island. As fun as these birds are to watch, they can also be a complete nuisance. They are curious, intelligent, and can wreak absolute havoc if a vehicle or camera bag is left lying around. Clever hunters and scavengers, these magnificent birds are one of the most deadly predators for penguin and albatross chicks nesting on these islands.
