natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photograph by: @cristinamittermeier // A group of Gentoo penguins huddles in a snow storm to stay warm. Of all the different types of penguins, these to me, are the most entertaining. Their sassy curiosity and intelligent demeanour make them fun to photograph. Their survival is threatened by climate change because, without healthy and abundant sea ice, they cannot survive. 
Shot on #assignment for @natgeo with @paulnicklen @andy_mann @ladzinski and @craigwelch 
#followme @cristinamittermeier for more insight into my experiences and thoughts when photographing penguins and other interesting animals. *

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo by @shonephoto (Robbie Shone) - The view from the Jungfraujoch Sphinx observatory in Switzerland is breathtaking. It's lofty location is dramatic and extremely exposed. These two photographs, taken from the viewing platform show the upper half of the Aletsch glacier, the largest glacial system in the Alps along with the observatory itself, during a cloudless night sky full of stars. Each time I visit this mass of ice, I am drawn more and more to its dwindling size. Glaciologists predict that by the year 2050, there will no longer be any glaciers in the European Alps. A sobering thought. We're here in Switzerland as part of a National Geographic Student Expedition.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo by Stephanie Sinclair @stephsinclairpix @tooyoungtowed // Eight-year-old brides, Tehani and Ghada, begin preparations for a family meal at their home outside Hajjah, Yemen. Child marriage has long been an issue in Yemen, one of the few countries in the region without a legal minimum age of marriage. Attempts to set 18 as the minimum marrying age collapsed with the outbreak of the conflict in 2015 and it is estimated that, now, child marriage rates could be much higher. A UNFPA-INTERSOS assessment, which interviewed over 250 community members, local leaders and survivors of child marriage for insight into how families are coping with the conflict, stated that most participants “were of the opinion that child marriage has increased in their community. They all stated that the conflict pushed the practice,” according to the assessment’s findings. While more comprehensive assessments are difficult to do in conflict situations, the report also suggests that girls are being married off even younger. Of the child marriage survivors interviewed in the northern part of the country, 72 per cent were married between ages 13 and 15. Of those in the south, 62 per cent were married before age 16.

This image is part of a 175-image exhibition titled “Too Young to Wed,” which is the inaugural exhibition at the new L’Arche du Photojournalisme, atop at the prestigious Grand Arche de la Defense in Puteaux, Paris. Many of the images were made #onassignment for @natgeo, including this one. The show, which opened June 1 and runs through Sept. 24, is complete with educational information about the dangers of #childmarriage and the efforts underway around the world to end the practice, which occurs in more than 50 countries spanning many cultures and religions. It also includes information about our nonprofit organization of the same name, @TooYoungToWed, which seeks to protect girls' rights and #endchildmarriage. @letoitdelagrandearche #girls #child #conflict #color #letgirlslearn

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Video by @joelsartore | Although incredibly vibrant and bold in color, the veiled chameleon would be almost impossible to see amongst the dense leaves of highly vegetated parts of the Arabian peninsula where it’s found. They’re quite shy around other, bigger species and may curl up into the fetal position when frightened. However, veiled chameleons (especially males) can get very aggressive toward one another. During breeding season, males perform for females by doing a courtship dance involving head rolls and chin rubs.
To see a portrait of this chameleon, check out @joelsartore!

A Mako Shark rises towards the surface in the late day light of New Zealand's coastal waters. Makos are ambush predators, often attacking fish - like tuna - from below. 
The numbers of Makos have declined worldwide due to overfishing and the increasing global demand for shark fins. They are currently listed as vulnerable by the IUCN. 
Learn more about Mako Sharks from the feature story about these impressive animals in the August issue of National Geographic Magazine, @NatGeo.

And if you like sharks, or simply find these creatures fascinating check, out the new book - SHARK - by @BrianSkerry and @NatGeo! Available at the link in my bio or wherever books are sold.

Out to play with the balsam roots. Good to see the high peaks still holding and flowers in the valley. About as iconic as Jackson Hole gets this time of year.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo by @anandavarma. Dr. Chris Clark weighs a Cuban Bee Hummingbird. This bird is not dead! Hummingbirds get confused when they are upside down and they hold still for a couple of seconds before flipping over and flying away. Chris is using this brief window to get a precise measurement of the bird's weight. You can see on the scale that this male weighs just 1.834 grams! That makes it the smallest species of bird in the world. Check out the story in the July issue of natgeo to learn more about hummingbirds. Check out @anandavarma to see another way to get a sense of how small bird this is.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - video by @chamiltonjames / Charlie Hamilton James - at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage (@dswt) in Nairobi Kenya a young elephant plays with handler Shivegha Julius. Many of the young elephants at the facility have been orphaned after their mothers were killed by poachers. I was there specifically to photograph an young elephant called Roi who’s mother had been killed with a poison arrow in the Masai Mara. As elephants are social animals they need attention and affection - here Julius is giving just a little of what the mother would have given.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Video by @BrianSkerry.

A Shortfin Mako Shark attacks a mullet bait, towed by a fisherman in the waters of New Zealand. Makos are one of the fastest animals in the sea, capable of swimming at speeds of over 45 mph. 
Sport fishermen frequently use a mullet bait - towed at speeds of nearly 10 knots - to try and catch marlin, but Mako Sharks often attack the bait instead. 
Photographer Brian Skerry (@BrianSkerry) built a special tow camera and used a high-speed video system to capture this astounding behavior in slow motion.

Learn more about these amazing animals in the August issue of National Geographic Magazine (@NatGeo), with a story featuring my photographs.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Photo by @FransLanting Where light and darkness meet in nature beauty occurs. This is a scene from Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah. It is one of many federally protected landscapes that is now under scrutiny from the current administration for a rollback of their status under pressure from other interests. The American idea of preserving large wild landscapes for all generations to come has been an inspiration to many people in many countries around the world, and my hope is that the US can continue to be a beacon. Shine light into darkness by adding your voice to the conversation if you care. Check the links below to find out what you can do. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of these special places.

natgeo's Instagram Photo - Don't be a grumpy leopard, the weekend is almost here! This big male leopard was not happy with me getting so close to the puku he had killed earlier in the morning. If you are a leopard fan, South Luangwa National Park in Zambia has more leopards than lions. We saw three leopards the first day, three leopards the second day, and a leopard everyday for the next six days.

However, after spending hundreds of hours floating in creeks and rivers with salmon, I see them as gifted athletes with an incomparable determination and perseverance to reach their natal streams to release their eggs into the gravel for future generations of salmon. I am humbled by their ability to return to the exact stream in which they were hatched after several years at sea.
