The piercing gaze of a lion. Photo @sandesh_kadur With the ability to hear things over a mile away and vision 8 times better than us, the lion is one of nature’s most awesome super-predator. This lion in his prime, was calling from far far away, before our tracker heard him & we made our way there. The lions’ call can be heard five miles away making it one of the loudest calls in the animal kingdom! *** For more stories about the natural world, follow me @sandesh_kadur as I travel with #natgeoexpeditions documenting our beautiful planet! #mammalwatching#botswana#africabyprivatejet#wildafrica
Photo by @brettmonroegarner // An undersea specialist diving above a 100 year old blue whale skeleton off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. The bones are remains left from commercial whaling operations from a century ago. Diving here was a moving experience. We were surprised to find the bones of not just one but many, many whales. It is a dramatic view into a bygone era of exploitation in Antarctica and a powerful reminder of the fragility of these wild places.

Last year the cherry blossoms were late. Travelers with the Inside Japan Photography Expeditions were shown full bloom when they arrived in Kyoto. Night viewing was a popular activity. Looking forward to seeing them again soon! #NatGeoExpeditions,#NatGeoExpeditionsInsideJapan,#Japan,#Kyoto,#Cherryblossoms,#onassignment

Photo @jasonedwardsng The world is bigger than modern technology would have us believe. The vast differences in culture and lifestyle mask a shared ancestry and the wonders of our ancient cultures. .

Photo by @krystlejwright // During our recent Journey to the White Continent cruise onboard the Orion, I’ve never seen so many evenings in a row with spectacular late light dancing its way across the mountains. The Lemaire Channel was full of ice which forced us to retreat north but with views like this, it was well worth the sudden change in plans. #antarctica
Photo by @save.our.plankton At a mere 2 inches long, the Spanish shawl nudibranch is small in size, but immense in beauty. The bright orange cerata appendages on the back extract oxygen from the sea water, allowing the animal to breathe. It’s always worth taking time to notice the small things in nature.

Photo @jasonedwardsng The magnificent southern alps in New Zealand, rise into the clear sky fracturing the horizon with their ragged, brutal teeth. It is wonderful to know there are such remote and unspoiled places like this in the world. . It’s even more special when those same countries make some of the best wine in the world, and you can experience it whilst dining amongst these peaks with National Geographic Expeditions! .
