Photo by @FransLanting Two orphaned orangutans cling to each other in northern Borneo. Like humans, they need affection and care from their mothers in order to become healthy adults. Orangutans are the last great apes that survive outside of Africa. They live only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, and they are endangered due to the massive destruction of their forest habitat. Baby orangs are also victims of the illegal pet trade—captured by poachers who kill their mothers to reach them. It is imperative that we protect the forests orangutans depend upon to insure that our next of kin on the family tree of life will be with us beyond our lifetime. I welcome you to support the organizations that are in the front lines of protecting them, such as the World Wildlife Fund and Wild Aid. I share this image in honor of World Orangutan Day, Saturday August 19. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of endangered animals around the world. @wildaid @world_wildlife @natgeotravel @thephotosociety @natgeocreative #WorldOrangutanDay #InternationalOrangutanDay #Borneo #Family #Love #Twins #Orphans

Video by @bertiegregory. A 12ft wide oceanic manta ray comes blasting out of the blue with an entourage of baitfish. Last July I was lucky enough to swim with these incredible creatures as they aggregated off the coast of the Yucatan peninsula, Mexico. The baitfish use the manta's enormous body as a shield from aerial predators, allowing them to feed safely near the surface. Shot for @natgeo and @stevewinterphoto. Follow @bertiegregory for more videos of these giants!
Part 3 of 5 of the European Highlight video! This probably the favorite video we've ever made around here! This is the highlight video from our European photo walk where we visited Portugal, Spain, Italy, France, England, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Hungary, and Russia! Wow, I get tired AND excited just thinking about it. I have upcoming photo walks at Burning Man and Los Angeles, to be followed by some unannounced locations in Japan and Asia after that. Anyway, enjoy, and maybe you'll see yourself in the video if you joined the party! :) If you see yourself or a friend, why not tag 'em? And thanks again everyone! :) #80stays #rcmemories #airnewzealnd #flixbus #friends
Sunsets on the Dalmatian coast in Croatia have that little something that I haven't found in Greece or other Mediterranean countries. Obviously the peaky islands of the Adriatic help give that dramatic look, but being able to watch sunset from a higher elevated point of view than 99% of all the other people made us feel very privileged. Indeed, most of the visitors in Croatia stay along the coast, at sea or highway level, while I always tried to find a remote mountain road to have the show just for ourselves. Good memories. #peaksofeurope
Dude. My Scorsese obsession are his under the radar joints (After Hours, Cape Fear, even have a soft spot for Ny Ny) but NO film am I more obsessed with than #TheKingOfComedy I literally think of this film and these characters EVERYTIME I set foot in/out/around/about 30rock---even before that became the place of my employ. A MASTERFUL study of fan obsession (I bet ANY amount of money @phontigallo gonna drop an #RupertPupkin reference on his page any moment)---this was my favorite of all of the great #JerryLewis' gems in his arsenal. Y'all gotta understand sundays after church before dinner you were most likely watching #BlondieAndDagwood #3Stooges or a #MartinAndLewis classic ---seen em all man. Even had the pleasure of being on his telethon w my dad back in the summer of 88 (thank god that is NOWHERE to be found rotf)---that was one of the most exciting times of my pre professional life he was so cool man. Y'all just don't know man to lose 2 comic gods like this. Man. #JerryLewis rip.
I gave this guy $10 to move his horse up a few feet and center it in my shot and it was totally worth it.
