Photo by Lynsey Addario @lynseyaddario | One-year-old Fatima watches as her mother pulls out a piece of bread. Severely malnourished, Fatima sits alongside her two siblings and mother, Mariam, right, from Kawkaz, Russia, shortly after arriving at the Al-Hol refugee camp in March. Fatima, like several other children at Hol, escaped from Baghouz, accompanied by families who by and large expressed unwavering support for the Islamic State. Since December, nearly 60,000 have arrived at the camp, pushing the camp to its breaking point, aid workers have said. About 100, mostly children, have died either en route to the camp or shortly after arriving, due to acute malnutrition, pneumonia, hypothermia, and diarrhea, according to the International Rescue Committee. A humanitarian crisis emerges as ISIS falls in northern Syria.
Photo by Beverly Joubert @beverlyjoubert | Up where the view is best: While termite mounds are a firm favorite with Okavango lions, giving them a good view over the swampy plains and a vantage point from which to plan an attack, these big cats are increasingly using trees as well. It’s unusual to see lions climbing trees; they’re not built like leopards and can struggle to get down. But lions are always adaptable, and it’s interesting to see how certain populations discover and use new techniques to aid their hunting. The Duba Plains females have always been particularly adaptable in this island environment, using water to their advantage while hunting, and it is largely the females who are beginning to use trees to plan their hunts as well. Perhaps the Duba lions will become known for their tree-climbing abilities as well as their impressive swimming. #okavangolions #tsaropride #treeclimbinglions #thisismytrophy
Photo by Daniella Zalcman @dzalcman | I am much more a photographer of people than I am a photographer of landscapes — but really, how could you make a bad picture in a place this stunning This is Havasu Falls, on the Havasupai Reservation, which lies at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. The tribe has about 730 members, but welcomes about 25,000 tourists every year who hike the eight miles down into the canyon to visit these spectacular sites. The reservation's main town, Supai, is the only place in America where mail is still carried in and out by mule. Follow @dzalcman for more! #arizona #havasupai #havasufalls
Photo by @babaktafreshi // Sponsored by @BudweiserUSA // Night hides a world but reveals a universe. Since 2007, when I started The World at Night program, I’ve explored many of the world’s best night skies, documenting the last remaining natural night environments untouched by our growing light pollution. From the 10,000-foot-high Haleakala volcano in Maui, Hawaii, the view of the Milky Way was otherworldly. A far thunderstorm cloud was on the horizon, with the Haleakala Observatory to the right. // Introducing @BudweiserUSA #DiscoveryReserve, a limited-edition, American red lager brewed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing and the determination of the American spirit. #SpaceBeer
Photo by Joel Sartore @joelsartore | Red foxes like this mother and kit, pictured at the edge of an oil field on Alaska’s North Slope, live around the world in many diverse habitats. Known for their intelligence and cunning, the red fox’s resourcefulness has helped it to adapt fairly easily to human environments such as farms, suburban areas, and even large communities. To see a silver variation of this species follow me, @joelsartore. #redfox #Alaska #cunning #PhotoArk
Photo by Luca Locatelli @lucalocatelliphoto | Morning rush on London Bridge. While the City of London is nearly uninhabited at night, in the morning thousands of workers flood in to its offices. For decades, the City has been the seat of financial power in the British capital. But amid growing pains and with Brexit looming, can it stay on top My work revolves around shaping the future, how our society transitions through new ways of living, and how technology is changing our approach to the environment and to our cities. I’ve embarked on a journey with @natgeo to showcase how London, one of the world’s busiest and fastest growing cities, is evolving. Follow me @lucalocatelliphoto to find out more about the London story I covered for @natgeo #London #architecture #street #britain #people

Photo by Mattias Klum @mattiasklumofficial | The Borneo rainforest is estimated to be at least 130 million years old, making it one of the oldest rainforests in the world (and twice as old as the Amazon rainforest). Extremely rich in biodiversity, Borneo provides habitat for about 15,000 known species of flowering plants, and more than 3,000 tree species, 221 terrestrial mammal species, and 420 bird species. After years of work in Borneo, it's one of the places in the world deeply stuck in my heart! Go to @mattiasklumofficial to see images and video from remarkable and fragile places around the world!

Photo by Nichole Sobecki @nicholesobecki | Dar es Salaam was established in 1862 as a plantation town meant to support Zanzibar, the larger centuries-old island hub of commerce. Once a sleepy fishing village, it has grown into a vibrant tropical metropolis straddling some of the most important sea routes in the world. Endowed with a large natural harbor (bandar as salaam means “harbor of peace” in Arabic), the city has developed a momentum of its own. As National Geographic explores changing urban spaces, I had the chance to return to Dar es Salaam, the economic capital of Tanzania and one of the fastest growing cities in Africa. To get to know this vibrant Swahili coastal city, take a look at our story “This Tanzanian city may soon be one of the world’s most populous. Is it ready” Link in bio @nicholesobecki #tanzania #daressalaam #city
Photo by Andy Mann @andy_mann | A sleeping Weddell seal lifts its head at the right moment, providing just the foreground element I was searching for to capture this blazing Antarctic sunset. This species has the southernmost distribution of any mammal on Earth, and it was a great honor to share this moment with such a charismatic character. Shot #onassignment for @natgeo down in the Antarctic Peninsula to document the rapidly changing southern landscape. Please follow me @andy_mann for more from this magical frozen landscape.
