Photo by @BabakTafreshi | On this starry night of May at an elevation of 2,000 meters (6,000 ft) on La Palma in the Canary Islands, I felt like I walked into a science fiction scene. These giant flowers, when in full bloom, look like nothing else on Earth. They are "Echium wildpretii," known as tajinaste in Spanish. About one to three meters tall, the plant was nearly extinct a few decades ago on this island due to intrusions by both rabbits and humans. Now, they're preserved and growing in number. The same plant on the neighboring island of Tenerife turns red instead of pink. Explore more of The World at Night photography with me @babaktafreshi. #echium #nightphotography #canaryislands

Photo by @daisygilardini | Harp seal pups are born on sea ice from late February to March. At birth, they are covered in a beautiful white coat that will last for only a couple of weeks. After that, dark waterproof hair will grow in and a third molt will occur in a little more than a year. Pups are skinny at birth, weighing only around 10-12 kilograms. Insulation from the elements is provided by their warm white coat rather than fat at this early stage of their lives. The mother will stay and nurse the pup for a period of 12 days, short by mammal standards. The fat-rich milk provided will allow them to gain two kg of blubber a day. Once weaned, at around 40 kg, the pups will stay on the ice for roughly another six weeks before entering the water and learning how to hunt by themselves. Follow me @DaisyGilardini for more images and stories behind the scenes. #canada #seal #harpseal #Quebec

Photo by @stephen_matera | The deep green hue of fir trees is matched by the emerald-colored waters of the glacier-fed sub-alpine lake in the Central Cascade Mountains of Washington. The runoff from a glacier contains minerals, sometimes called rock flour, that are suspended in the lake water and give it that incredible green color. Follow me @stephen_matera for more images like this from Washington and around the world. #glacier #rockflour #lake #wilderness

Photo by @mborowick | Sigöldugljufur canyon, located in Landmannalaugar, is part of the Fjallabak Nature Reserve. This is way off the beaten path, but for sure is one of the most beautiful scenes of nature.  #iceland #drone #waterfall #nature #travel

Photo by @PaulNicklen | In South Georgia, king penguins live in very close quarters. Hundreds of thousands of these tall and colorful birds fill the shoreline during breeding season. In harsh blizzards, this proximity comes in handy as the penguins huddle together to keep warm. I’ve found that no photo can truly capture this overwhelming and incredible scene. Follow me @PaulNicklen and explore my feed for more photos of king penguins. #SouthGeorgia #penguin #colony #wildlife #KingPenguins

Photo by @andrea_frazzetta | San Blas Islands. The archipelago of San Blas consists of hundreds of small islands. Approximately 365 islands and cays, of which only 49 are inhabited. They lie off the north coast of the Isthmus of Panama, east of the Panama Canal. 
A part of the comarca (district) Guna Yala along the Caribbean coast and home to the Kuna Indians.
San Blas and its surrounding area is a haven for ecotourists because of its pristine environs.

Photo by Robbie Shone @shonephoto | As evening descends upon the outside world, two cave explorers enter Er Long Dong and begin a long journey through the cave to the gigantic chamber known as Cloud Ladder Hall. This is one of the three known tunnels into the the big hall of the cave and it's probably the easiest to negotiate.

Photo by @CristinaMittermeier | The sun began to set and paint reflections of beautiful patterns on the calm waves rolling into the small inlet. After a day of diving and exploring off the coast of British Columbia, I had a whole new perspective on the landscape above water. The area is booming with aquatic life and to have the beautiful and colorful world hiding just below the surface revealed to me was incredible. You never really know what's going on below the thin blue line until you go there and experience it. To have such a spectacular dive site so close to home is something I will always be grateful for.

Photo by @lucalocatelliphoto | Visitors peer over Dubai from an observation deck at the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper at 2,717 feet (828 meters). Dubai aims for superlatives and it's now racing to become one of the planet’s most sustainable cities. The emirate will showcase its efforts as host of Expo 2020, also known as the world’s fair, a six-month exhibition with sustainability as one of its themes. A decade ago Dubai had one of the largest ecological footprints of any city in the world. By 2050 it wants to have the smallest. Can it get there? My work revolves around the making of 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 Dubai aims to become one of the world’s greenest cities. Follow me @lucalocatelliphoto to find out more about the Dubai story I covered for @natgeo #Dubai #environment #architecture #skyline #people #city
