Photo by @jasperdoest / I remember the scene as if it happened today: First, a head peeks through a doorway and soon the rest of the figure follows, apparently unbothered by my presence. I smile and rouse myself from sleep, still fighting jet lag. I search for my camera, only to find the battery dead. Why now!? Clearly I wasn’t prepared for this. I stare at the flamingo in front of me, and before I know it he’s on his way out again. Obviously I’m not as interesting to him as he is to me. I can’t help thinking, nonody is going to believe this. Luckily I would have many more chances to capture this flamingo, a rescue animal that lives with my cousin, a veterinarian, in Curacao.

Practice makes perfect. A male Raggiana bird of paradise practices his dance moves in the rainforest of New Guinea, even though no female is present. Birds of paradise are iconic species in the New Guinea region (parts of Indonesia and PNG), the largest intact rainforest region in Asia-Pacific and critical for global conservation. You’ll find a longer video of this species @TimLaman – do check it out. And learn more at @BirdsofParadiseProject. #RaggianaBirdofparadise #Birdsofparadise #PNG #PapuaNewGuinea #NewGuinea

Photos by @florianschulzvisuals / The outgoing Trump Administration is moving to complete a last-minute oil lease sale in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, as the Interior Department set a process in motion to approve a new seismic survey of nearly half a million acres of the refuge's coastal plain. The proposed survey involves hundreds of miles of seismic exploration trails that would result from 90,000-pound seismic vehicles crisscrossing the fragile tundra. It would scar the landscape and threaten denning polar bears. Such a proposal typically requires a lengthy environmental review, but the administration appears poised to fast-track the process in order to get seismic testing under way before the Biden Administration takes over. Please follow me @florianschulzvisuals for more images of the last great wild places we need to protect for future generations! #ProtectTheArctic

Photo by @babaktafreshi / I've lived for several years on Boston's North Shore, and this was one of the most stunning scenes I've experienced. A storm cloud moved across the ocean, above the island of Nahant. Behind me, the sun had already set, but the last rays were shining on the clouds like a red spotlight.

Photo by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz / Africa has lost one of its giants. This is Jerry Rawlings, who was a flight lieutenant in the Ghana's air force—and four-time president of the country—when he gave me an afternoon on the parapet outside his office at Osu Castle, in June 1985. I was on my first international assignment, and I was thrown in the jail for a week in neighboring Burkina Faso for taking pictures of smugglers crossing the Ghanian border. Rawlings got word of my predicament and personally intervened to have me released. A revolutionary leader who led his country out of a post-colonial crisis, Rawlings was also an expert military jet and helicopter pilot. Leading Ghana was a tenuous position in 1985, and somewhat hidden in this picture was a small pistol he kept in his left boot. To see more from my travels in Africa and beyond, follow @geosteinmetz.

Photo by @erintrieb / One year ago, in November 2019, thousands of Iraqis organized to protest Iraq’s sectarian political system and government corruption. For several months Iraqi youth successfully occupied central Baghdad, where hundreds of protestors were killed and thousands injured, prompting Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi to resign. COVID-19 brought Iraq’s protests to a halt, with the rise of curfews and social distancing, but the impact of the protests continues to ripple through and in some cases upend the status quo. Here protestors take cover behind a homemade barricade after Iraqi security forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets. For more human stories from around the world follow @erintrieb.

Photo by @michaelchristopherbrown / Outside a Catholic school for boys, located in Minova, Democratic Republic of the Congo, where roughly half the population is Catholic. Described by Michael G Schatzberg as the only truly national institution apart from the state,” Catholic schools have educated over 60 percent of the nation's primary school students and more than 40 percent of its secondary students. The church owns and manages an extensive network of hospitals, schools, and clinics, as well as many diocesan economic enterprises, including farms, ranches, stores, and artisan shops.

Photo by @celestesloman / This is a portrait of KC, photographed in the Great Salt Pond on Block Island. The island is a very special place that never ceases to inspire. KC is a seasonal worker who spends summers on the island. Located off the coast of Rhode Island, Block Island has a small population that increases drastically in the summer months, with an influx of tourists and seasonal workers. With no hospital on the island and an aging year-round population, islanders have been vigilant about preventing an outbreak of COVID-19.

Photos by Keith Ladzinski @ladzinski / If you’ve ever wondered why plants change color in the autumn, here’s a brief explanation: As the days get shorter, leaves stop producing chlorophyll, a pigment triggered by sunlight that helps the leaf absorb energy through photosynthesis. Once chlorophyll production ceases, the green color fades and the pigment xanthophyll begins to show—typically in the yellow, orange, and red spectrum. These colors are a clear signal that the flora is moving into winter hibernation. This carousel was photographed in a 30-foot radius in South Bend, Indiana. To see more fall photos, please visit @ladzinski.
