Photo by @tasneemalsultan | Across Arab countries around the Persian Gulf for the past half century or so, the attire worn by men is traditionally called a thobe or dishdasha. Each country and region within has a few different details that identify the geography of the floor-length white gown worn by men. In Taif, the Saudi town where this photo is taken, men call this thobe design "mahared." #taif #saudiarabia

Photo by @carltonward | This bobcat is the first visitor to a relatively new "camera trap," which is set on the fence line looking toward Big Cypress National Preserve from Green Glades West Ranch. The purpose of the camera position is to show that public and private lands work together as connected wildlife habitat, which is the foundation of the statewide Florida Wildlife Corridor (@fl_wildcorridor). Part of my #PathofthePanther project with @insidenatgeo. #bobcat #Everglades @pathofthepanther #floridawild #keepflwild @bigcypressnps

The fields that surround this small farming community are part of the "emerald desert" of sugarcane in Brazil, which hosts the largest sugar and ethanol producers in the world. #brasil #sugarcane #latinamerica #agriculture #workers

Video by @bertiegregory | A grey wolf howls on the west coast of the Hudson Bay, Canada. This particular wolf is part of a pack that takes on polar bears—the only pack in the world known to do this. This pack was bold, but whenever they came over to investigate us, we felt zero aggression, just curiosity. We humans have done terrible things to wolves. It’s thought that in 1600, there were two million wolves in North America. Due to 400 years of systematic extermination, there are now just 80,000. There is hope, though: they are on the comeback, but they still need us to stop persecuting them. These top predators keep herbivore populations in check, allowing countless other species to thrive.

Photo by @sarahyltonphoto | When I lost my father suddenly almost a decade ago, I backpacked my way through India, getting lost, learning to see, and slowly healing my heart through the warmth and deep history of this very special place. India has been and always will be my greatest teacher. It’s a country that reveals itself in layers and with great patience. I was reminded of this when I made this image outside of Ghum Railway Station in West Bengal several months ago. I’d almost given up on the day, annoyed at myself for not being able to tap into my craft. I put my camera away, and just as I surrendered, this cinematic scene appeared before me. Slowing down, and letting a place reveal itself to you is all part of the process. Follow me @sarahyltonphoto for more travel stories #india #darjeeling #train

Video by @ronan_donovan | The standoff between predator and prey can last for hours or minutes. It all depends on the fitness, skill, and numbers of both species. Wolves must learn how to hunt the abundant prey in the region where they are born, and here in the high Arctic, at 80 degrees north, this subspecies of gray wolf has to learned how to hunt muskoxen. A relative of goats, muskoxen can weigh upwards of 800 pounds and are a formidable force when they stand together, like these three males. Predators are often forced to put themselves in mortal danger just to eat, so there is a good deal of calculation before rushing into a situation that could end in being gored or kicked. It’s a stressful event for wolves and prey. In this video a yearling female arctic wolf circles a herd on Canada’s Ellesmere Island. The rest of her pack stands just out frame. That big yawn at the start of the video is no doubt a sign of stress as this young wolf observes these muskoxen. The older wolves spotted a weakness in the oldest bull muskoxen. But together the shaggy beasts were impenetrable and the wolves were forced to look elsewhere for a meal. Follow along with @ronan_donovan to see more video and images of these wolves. There is also a 3-part series streaming now on @disneyplus about these wolves.

Photo by Cristina Mittermeier @Mitty | It was a lucky shot to fit an 80-foot long whale into a single frame. I took this photograph on my first immersion in the Azores, and I remember thinking to myself, boy, this is easy! I was wrong. Sleek and surrounded by nothing but the dark waters of the open ocean, the blue whale resembles a rocket ship suspended in space. They dive deep and they swim fast, so getting in the right place at the right time without disturbing their feeding is really hard. Blue whales are the largest animals to have ever existed, reaching mind-boggling dimensions of 100 feet long and upwards of 200 tons—and all on a diet composed almost exclusively of krill, tiny shrimplike crustaceans! Blue whales don't have any natural predators, but in the 1800s and early 1900s, they were hunted to the edge of extinction at the hands of humans. Today, they remain endangered, and we are still fighting to protect them. Follow me @Mitty to find out how you can join our movement at @SeaLegacy and support a healthy and abundant ocean. #Whale #History #TurningTheTide #Ocean #Conservation

Photo by @iantehphotography | I love this scene of children gleefully jumping into the water by the beach at St. Malo. The city is a walled port in Brittany, in northwestern France, on the English Channel. I was working on a story about the historical aspects of this province. In the past, it was notorious for privateering; today the city is a major tourist destination. #stmalo #summer #swimming
