When Yellowstone’s wild bison herds migrate out of the park in winter in search of grass …. questions are asked and emotions run high.
1500 pounds on the highway requires great care and great tolerance.
“Im a buffalo I do what I want ” .. if you know these majestic beasts this slogan is a perfect fit and it works for me.
@michaelnicknichols I spent 14 months photographing in Yellowstone for the May 2016 issue of National Geographic Magazine.

Boaters paddle their way down a river in Tam Coc, Ninh Binh, Vietnam, at the heart of the Trang An Landscape Complex. The area, designated as Vietnam’s newest UNESCO World Heritage site in 2014, is a mere 64 miles from the capital of Hanoi. There is evidence of human activity in the site’s caves dating back thousands of years, and temples, pagodas, and small villages dot the landscape of steep cliffs and paddy fields.

The Overland track is the most popular of all the long bush walks in Tasmania, drawing over 8,000 walkers each year. It extends 80 km from Cradle Mountain south to Lake St. Clair and features craggy mountains, beautiful lakes, extensive forests, and site walks to waterfalls, valleys, and still more mountains.

Nature Boom Time - Series Trailer
Hey guys! Here's a trailer we put together for our series, "Nature Boom Time" premiering on Nat Geo WILD on March 5th, time TBA. Get excited!!! If you'd like...

WE INTERRUPT YOUR REGULARLY SCHEDULE DEAD BIRD FOR AN EXCITING SCIENCE COMMUNICATION ANNOUNCEMENT!

My friend Charlie has been working for over a year now on a big project, and it’s finally ready for us all to see! With some serious funding from National Geographic, Charlie and a small team of dedicated friends and family have created Nature Boom Time!, a new television show all about the coolest forests in the United States. Through the live film from their journeys and some truly amazing crafting skills, Nature Boom Time! hopes to reach young audiences and “get kids pumped about nature!”

Charlie and his team have worked so hard on this project, and it would be so great for them if the show received good ratings. If you have the chance, please consider tuning in to Nat Geo WILD on March 5th (time is still being determined, but sometime between 7-9 am eastern time). The episodes will be 5-10 minute “filler” shows, but they will also be filling your head with knowledge and excitement! Woohoo!

@sixpenceee So, last week in my dorm, a rat was spotted in one of the toilets (while someone was using it). As you can imagine this got me pretty freaked out and while I was googling to see how likely the chances are of it happening again, I stumbled upon this video by national geographic. It’s pretty fascinating, but unfortunately it didn’t really give me any peace of mind :/

After laying several hours still in a snow storm, thick coat of ice forms on the muskox’s fur. The ice-cover cracks as he begins to move, you see this first around his eyes when he awakes. Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella National Park, Norway.

Top Shot: Reflecting On The Lake

Your Shot member Brett Rylance descrbes his thoughts on this image. “A Burmese fisherman rests at the point of his boat on an Inle Lake morning in Myanmar. This image has reflections in a lot of contexts for me - the obvious one is the reflection in the water but I believe the fisherman in this posture is reflecting on his own life and the fact that the reflection in the water is a little blurred actually represents his distant memories as well.” Photograph by Brett Rylance

Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz / @thephotosociety Snow blowers are the only defenders left on the ramparts of the Statue of Liberty, and they had to start early after a winter storm. The statue and its pedestal rest on a base adapted from an early nineteenth-century fort on the site, which was built in the form of an eleven-point star. The design permitted troops to fire down on the backs of attackers seeking to scale the walls. To see more photos of winter in New York visit @newyorkairbook by natgeo
