Photo by @russ_wildlife || These wild dog pups growing up fast out at @erindinamibia, the joys these little guys bring to me, their sense of adventure from watching them stumbling around the den as tiny little pups to running with the adults has been a remarkable experience and one I will never forget.

The KING in all his GLORY! Lions are found in the Family 'Felidae' in the Animal Kingdom, recognized by their glorious manes and impeccable nature.

Look at this little tortoise go! Since India star tortoises live in hot climates, they spend most of the day in the shade in their shell. But during dusk and dawn they're as active as ever. . . . . . . . . #animalplanetupclose #animalsofinstagram #animalplanet #animaloftheday #wild #wildlife #outdoors #animals #wildanimals #conservation #nature #animallovers #instanature #wildgeography #tortoise

Flying through a fire cloud ☁️🔥☁️ This photo from roughly 30,000 ft (9 km) shows how smoke particles reflect light in ways that make the Sun appear blazing orange. Our DC-8 flying laboratory passed directly through a large fire cloud — called a pyrocumulonimbus — on August 8 as it was rising from a fire in eastern Washington, giving scientists a look at the phenomena. These clouds form when the intense heat of wildfires lift the smoke above the boundary layer, the lowest part of Earth's atmosphere. The flight was part of a joint NOAA and NASA field campaign called FIREX-AQ. Scientists are studying the composition and chemistry of smoke in the atmosphere to better understand its impact on air quality and climate.

For Her 10th Birthday | Photograph by Joanna Polling (@joanna_polling) . “For my daughter’s 10th birthday, we took her to get her ears pierced,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Joanna Polling. “She asked that they do both her ears at the same time. She put on a brave face and in one click had two new holes.” This photo was published in our “Rites of Passage” story, guest-edited by Jenn Poggi. To participate in our open assignments, go to the link in our profile (www.natgeoyourshot.com). — “I love the eye contact we are able to make with your daughter, Joanna. This is a milestone for many young people and I feel a sense of magnitude in her quiet but intense expression that you've captured.” — Jenn Poggi (@jennpoggi), Assistant Professor, Rochester Institute of Technology, School of Photographic Arts and Sciences (@rit.photo)
🤦♀️ These images are all from the last few days at Horsey in Norfolk, where plastic pollution is causing issues for the local seal colonies. @rosiebphotography witnessed three seals caught in netting and with plastic rings round their necks. It can be difficult for rescuers to catch the affected seals, having to wait for the seals to become weaker so they can be helped.

Did you know that female polar bears typically give birth to twin cubs? These cubs weigh no more than a few pounds at birth. Young cubs stay with their mothers for more than two years to learn the survival skills of the harsh environment in which they live. But with the effects of #ClimateChange already becoming apparent, polar bears need our help now more than ever. You can help protect polar bears and restore ocean abundance by becoming a Wavemaker at OCEANA.ORG. . 📸: Shutterstock
#EarthCapture by @beetlecampbell The giraffe is the tallest mammal in the world, thanks to its long neck and towering legs. A giraffe's legs alone can reach 6 feet in length, allowing them to run as fast as 35 miles an hour! 🦒 . . . . #bbcearth #giraffe #southafrica #animallovers #naturelovers #wildlifephotography #africa #earthlovers #amazinganimals #planetearth #safari #travel #travelphotography #travelhappy
