As the sun rose over Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming, thousands of people and their vehicles were jockeying for prime eclipse viewing positions. Hours later they were rewarded with a total eclipse of the sun. This image is an illustration, a composite of two frames, the morning sunrise of the Tetons and a timed multiple exposure of today’s eclipse. Follow @kengeiger for more eclipse images. #eclipse #eclipse2017

Photograph by @brentstirton | Poachers killed this black rhinocerous for its horn with high-caliber bullets at a water hole in South Africa’s Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. They entered the park illegally, likely from a nearby village, and are thought to have used a silenced hunting rifle. Once the most numerous rhino species, black rhinos are now critically endangered due to poaching and the illegal international trade in rhino horn, one of the world’s most corrupt illegal wildlife networks. – @brentstirton was awarded the prestigious @nhm_wpy Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2017 title for this compelling image taken on assignment for @natgeo. Brent’s image will be on display with other images selected by an international panel of judges at the 53rd Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the @natural_history_museum in London. #WPY53

Video: @tbfrost | Please see link in my profile to read the entire Australia crocodile conservation story on the National Geographic Magazine website. I’ve shared this video before, and while many of you have seen it many of you have not – and nonetheless , it is worth re posting to remind the world that crocodiles are – I think anyways – the best designed animal on the planet. Their jaws slam shut with incredible power, anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 pounds per square inch, perfect for grabbing prey and holding on and crushing bone. Across their legs and backside they have both osteoderms and scutes. The osteoderms are a bone filled scale that forms an almost impenetrable armor. The scutes, also formed with bone, help protect the crocodile but, as one of my instagram followers reminded me, serve another purpose: their design and formation on the back of the crocodile create cross currents that cancel each other out which is why when they swim it barely disturbs the surface of the water. And then we have their tails, pure muscle so strong it can propel a crocodile completely out of the water! like this one on the Adelaide river in the Northern Territory of Australia. There is so much more to share about crocodiles and why they are perfectly designed for what they do: their eyes, even their stomach acid! To learn more read the article and follow me @tbfrost
