@natgeo @stevewinterphoto Up up and away! I've been filming cheetahs in the heart of South Africa's Free State province with my assistant @alexbraczkowski. New research led by Sarah Durant and colleagues suggests there may be as few as ~7100 cheetahs left in Africa, and that if their populations are to survive, they need good protection inside national parks to offset losses in community areas where they clash with farmers! Did you know that cheetahs have good hunting success! These two males along with one other female ate 80 blesbuck, nearly 100 springbuck and some hartebeest calves in just five months! Follow me @stevewinterphoto for more awesome shots of big cats like these! @stevewinterphoto #onassignment #cheetah #wildlifeconservation #inthefield #wildlifephotojournalism #bigcatsintiative #photooftheday #beauty @cheetahconservationfund @tigerlilycheetah #redcine @africanparksnetwork @reddigitalcinema

A jelly fish, off the east coast of scotland, photograph by David Chancellor @chancellordavid 'We alone can devalue gold by not caring if it falls or rises in the marketplace. Wherever there is gold there is a chain, you know, and if your chain is gold so much the worse for you. Feathers, shells and sea-shaped stones are all as rare. This could be our revolution: to love what is plentiful as much as what's scarce. ' 'We alone' by Alice Walker. #scotland #sea #jellyfish #conserving

Photo by @johnstanmeyer - As if time stands still, as still as this hotel desk clerk who days previous had hardly moved. Remembering strangely pleasant moments while on past @natgeo assignment at a simple hotel in Sumatra, Indonesia.

Photograph by @thomaspeschak A scalloped hammerhead cruises past a school of steel pompano on a rocky reef in the northern Galápagos Islands. Warmer sea temperatures can lead to higher parasite loads in sharks and also cause infections, visible as white patches on their flanks below the dorsal fin. These hammerheads are normally skittish but the need to visit cleaning stations serviced by various reef fish (they remove and feed on the shark's parasites) trumped any shyness. They completely ignored my presence and allowed me to record visual evidence of skin infections in dozens of hammerheads. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for the June 2017 story Galápagos: Life in the Balance. In collaboration with @darwinfound @saveourseasfoundation @pelayosalinas #galapagosnationalpark and @ecuadortravel #photooftheday #sharks #climatechange

Photo by @anandavarma. A wooly false vampire bat (Chrotopterus auritus) in flight. This species is one of the largest bats in the new world and hunts birds, rodents, and other bats. I photographed this male in the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. Rodrigo Medellin (aka the “batman of Mexico”, @rodrigomedellin1223) trained it to fly across a flight cage on cue. For a behind the scenes look at carnivorous bat training, check out my feed @anandavarma. #bats #flight #onassignment #Mexico #Yucatan @thephotosociety @natgeocreative
