Biologist Pedro Montero who works at the sanctuary said, “I think it would be weird not to enjoy this job, or like working with animals in general.

Dozens of different flowers begin to grow across the harsh, desolate landscape, with lower elevations peaking in March, and higher elevations in June. During the rare #superbloom, lower elevations are famous for their fields of Desert Gold, depicted here.
                    Glacier Ice Is the Most Beautiful Blue in Nature
There’s something about the blue color of glacier ice that leaves a lasting impression. It may be because glacier-blue is a hue that can’t be duplicated anywhere else or by any other means. I find it the most beautiful blue in all of nature.

21 July This is part of a series of portraits of North Koreans. This swimmer, Ri Song-hui, is in her early twenties. People can be incredibly shy because they might not have seen foreigners walking around before. But I showed her some other portraits I had done to help her understand the project and then she was fine. There is a demystifying element to these images, I hope, in that we can see they are normal people enjoying what many of us would do on a weekend.

                    South Africa's Wildlife Is Under Threat and This Might Be the Only Way to Save It
South African wildlife faces a huge threat from poachers, numbers of which seem to increase every year with the rise in demand for ivory around the world. The continued success of private game reserves like Kwandwe might be the only way to keep entire species from becoming extinct within our lifetime.

14 January I had an assignment to stake out Trump Tower a couple of days before the inauguration. At around four o’clock, the march arrived across the street. It had just started snowing heavily – these big flakes. I went over and saw Kandy Freeman. I loved the way the snowflakes were staying in her afro. I thought that was a poignant detail, that they were not melting. They were the embodiment of “the snowflake”, the slur the right uses for the liberal left. The photo seems really quiet, but there’s actually chaos going on behind us.

It’s no wonder butterflies have fascinated human beings for as long as we have coexisted. These colorful creatures appear delicate—fragile, even—but perform dazzling feats of acrobatics and endurance, by design. Many members of this diverse family have the strength to withstand whatever nature throws at them, from high winds and heavy rains to frigid winters and sweltering summers.
