Bird Bank

Thousands of brown pelicans find a safe place to nest on South Carolina’s Deveaux Bank, one of the largest pelican rookeries on the Atlantic coast. The isolated, shape-shifting island is free of raccoons and other predators that eat eggs and chicks.

Vincent J. Musi recounts the humorous tale of a story eight years in the making on our Photography blog, Proof.

On the Voltino Road

“The Voltino is a place near Grosseto in Tuscany, Italy,” writes Your Shot member Fulvio Morelli. “The road to get there crosses cultivated fields and then coasts along the River Ombrone. It’s the place I usually go to shoot a naturalistic photo, usually of birds or dragonflies or bugs.

“When I arrived there were a lot of clouds and no wind, and the light was soft—the sun was behind the clouds. My first thought when I saw the scene was, This is a beautiful black-and-white landscape.”

Monkeying Around

In Morocco’s Middle Atlas mountains, a Barbary macaque pauses for a snack after a bout of playing with other young members of the troop. Macaques eat anything: seeds, grass, young leaves, berries, even mealworms and reptiles.

The Children’s Place

Looking like playfully scattered confetti, children sled a snowy hill in Shizukuishi, Japan. Your Shot member Masami Murooka calls it an “extraordinary playground,” which emerged at the side of a large festival’s parking lot. “Anyone trying to photograph only the festival would never notice this place,” Murooka writes.

Murooka’s picture was featured in Your Shot’s Daily Dozen.

Seal Dive

Southern Africa has some of the world’s richest waters. But debate swirls over how to sustain these seas and the fishing communities that depend on them. Here, a fur seal surfs Atlantic swells off Cape Town. To conserve sea life around the city’s coastline, a marine protected area (MPA)—one of 23 in
South Africa—was created in 2004.

Spiritual Scale

Thiksey Gompa, a Tibetan Buddhist monastery known for its resemblance to Lhasa’s Potala Palace, sits at 11,800 feet in the northern Himalayan region of Ladakh, India. The 12-story complex houses temples, a nunnery, and Buddhist artwork, including a 40-foot statue of Maitreya, or the future Buddha.

More Than Everest

For the Sherpas of Nepal, the years spent working on Mount Everest are fraught with danger. Some Sherpa families in the Everest region send their children to live with relatives in Kathmandu so they can attend schools there. The parents hope the next generation won’t have to risk their lives working on the mountain.

Home to Roost

Gulls, gannets, and penguins are neighbors on Mercury Island, near the Diamond Coast of Namibia. The country’s first marine protected area aims to reduce human disturbance and increase natural abundance around Mercury and ten other islands along 250 miles of coastline.
