A king penguin returns to its to colony with a belly packed full fish on the Island of South Georgia in the South Atlantic Ocean. These penguins hunt mainly for laternfish here. This prey species undergoes a daily vertical migration so during the night, the kings hunt near to the ocean's surface. If hunting in the day though, the kings must dive much deeper. Whilst they might look clumsy on land, these penguins have been recorded diving to depths of over 300m/1000ft. Once on land, the adult pictured must now find its chick to offload the hard earned meal. Shot as part of a new online series for National Geographic coming soon. Follow @bertiegregory

// Stilt houses stand over the shallow grass flats of Biscayne Bay in Biscayne National Park. Just a few miles from downtown Miami, Biscayne Bay is the beginning of the Florida Keys and a watery wilderness adjacent to the deep waters of the Gulf Stream and the Bahamas only 60 miles to the east. See @CarltonWard
for a different view looking towards Miami. Shot #onassignment

// takayna/Tarkine wilderness in north western Tasmania is one of the last remaining tracts of undisturbed Gondwanan rainforest. To think that this landscape is reminiscent of when dinosaurs roamed the planet and yet, now this delicate landscape is under threat from destructive extraction industries such as logging and mining. Modern conservation is a complex topic but I hope we continue to promote the importance of protecting these areas and designate the Tarkine into a world heritage listing so that future generations can enjoy as well. #tarkine #tasmania #wilderness
// There’s nothing quite like exploring Arches National Park under the light of a full moon. Where are you headed this weekend?

The granite monoliths of Pakistan’s Karakoram Himalaya also known as the ‘Trango Towers’. On our expedition here in 2007 @cedarwright
and I were the first to stand on top of one of the ‘Cat Ear’ spires on the right side of this frame via a route that spiraled around the formation for 4,000ft of climbing to a 18k summit. On top we climbed one at time to a tiny spike to balance upon surrounded by the greater Himalaya! #adventuretravel #exploration
