PHOTO screenshot by Bertie Gregory @bertiegregory | A male polar bear stretches on the west coast of the Hudson Bay in Canada. These huge bears can weigh up to 1,600 pounds (726 kilograms). This particular male was in no rush. He was waiting at the water’s edge in anticipation of the big freeze, an annual event when Arctic waters turn into a rock-solid ice pathway. This ice allows him to hunt his primary prey, the ringed seal. Our warming climate is delaying the arrival of the big freeze by about a day each year. That means that this bear has lost a month of the hunting time that previous generations relied on. To see this guy in action and to learn more about polar bears’ incredible lives, check out my new online series, ‘Wild_Life: The Big Freeze’ at natgeo.com/wildlife or on National Geographic YouTube.

"One coffee please,
No sugar, all black,
Three hot crepes,
With strawberry jelly,
2 fluffy Pancakes and one Belgian waffle,
A bowl of wheat puffs for my dog and, Oh! Also, one pot on standby for my friend who is yet to arrive."

"A one way ticket to the eastern Himalayas and a protein bar."

Their parents knew one to be successful and one to not.
Same society, different people.
Same parents, different morals.
Nothing beats sharing the rush of ziplining with friends - which is exactly what Intrepid travel vlogger Sbu (aka @parkour_phiri) did when he introduced Roger the whole #flyAirNature experience - which is the perfect compliment for the action-packed activity Sbu likes to do called parkour.
Pakour is an exciting discipline movie stunt doubles might use as a 'CrossFit' workout regime 😉 The aim is for practitioners to get from point A to point B in a complex environment as fast and efficiently as possible (a lot like ziplining!). This includes running, climbing, swinging, somersaulting, vaulting, jumping and rolling - and was originally developed from military obstacle courses.
Would you be brave enough to try it?
L'isola bella, donata nel 1806 da Ferdinando I di Borbone a Pancrazio Ciprioti sindaco di Taormina, fu acquistata nel 1890 da Florence Trevelyan che la valorizzò costruendovi una casetta e piantumandovi rare essenze pregiate.
Nel 1954 fu acquistata per 38.000 ₤ dai fratelli Leone ed Emilio Bosurgi, che vi realizzarono un villaggio con 12 residenze autonome ed una minuscola piscina camuffata fra rocce e piantagioni, al fine di allietare ed ospitare i loro amici imprenditori e banchieri.
Nel 1990 l'isola fu infine acquistata dall'Assessorato dei beni culturali della Regione Siciliana. Nel 1998 fu istituita riserva naturale, gestita dal WWF, poi dalla Provincia di Messina

🇫🇷 Ok, cette première journée d’hier était INCROYABLE. On a découvert nos poneys du jour, sachant qu’on va en monter plusieurs durant la semaine pour ne pas trop les user. J’ai rencontré « Feu », un magnifique et adorable mâle. Après avoir fait connaissance avec nos montures le matin, la horde de 60 chevaux avec qui on va randonner pendant 6 jours est arrivée d’un coup. Les voir galoper en totale liberté, faire ce qu’ils voulaient et être au milieu de nous était juste un sentiment à couper le souffle. On a traversé des rivières et longé des paysages de fou pour finalement arriver aux pieds du Volcan Hekla en fin de journée. J’ai hâte de découvrir les autres poneys et de continuer à être au milieu de tous ces chevaux en liberté ! 😍
Un voyage en collaboration avec @cavalngo#cavalngo
🇺🇸 Ok, that first day yesterday was INCREDIBLE. We discovered our ponies of the day, knowing that we will climb several during the week to not wear them too much. I met "Fire", a beautiful and adorable male. After meeting our mounts in the morning, the horde of 60 horses with which we will hike for 6 days arrived at once. To see them galloping in total freedom, doing what they wanted and being in our midst was just a breathtaking feeling. We crossed rivers and skirted crazy landscapes to finally reach the Hekla Volcano at the end of the day. I can not wait to discover the other ponies and continue to be in the middle of all these loose horses! 😍

An early start and a quick hike to reach this suspension bridge just in time for the first light to hit the peaks. I love sunrise and the early morning silence but I am not really good at getting up in the morning. Like at all. Any tips for me? 😝 Shot on @lexarmemory#shotonlexar#lexarambassador
Stoked to announce that my partnership with @getolympus is getting amped up as I will now be joining them as an Olympus Explorer. The past year working with them has been an insane journey and I know this next year will be even more incredible. Stay tuned! #getolympus#breakfreewitholympus

•Mood and Mist 🏔☁️🌱•
It was definitely a moody morning out on Mormon row when the grass quite literally appeared to be dancing in the wind. Combine that with the Grand looking oh-so stoic and the low hanging fog positioned perfectly below the peaks, it would have just been silly to pass up this photo-opp. So, naturally, I frantically pulled over the car and scrambled through the high grass to get this shot. #visitwyoming
What do you guys think? 😏

One of the most incredible and unexpected views I’ve ever seen! The unreal sructures of Valle De Las Animas with the majestic Illimani mountain the background! ⛰
