Photo by @carltonward: this is an image I've been waiting to share. Now that a version is published in the current issue of Nature Conservancy Magazine (@nature_org), I can share the this story...In March of 2014, I was exploring the Rainbow River with Mac Stone when this cormorant let us swim up within a foot of its perch on a submerged palm. We had watching him forage beneath the surface further downstream when I noticed that he was returning back upstream to his favorite log. I was exhausted from swimming against the stiff current when I caught up and struggled to tread water holding my dome port at the water line. For an instant, the cormorant turned in my direction and spread his wings. Thankfully the focus and flash settings were ready to capture the moment. Then I relaxed and let the current swept me again downstream. The cormorant, which we affectionately named Edward because he was so distinguished, dried his wings a bit longer and then slid back into the water to chase more fish. We visited the Rainbow River this year during the @FL_WildCorridor #Glades2Gulf Expedition. I saw several cormorants and wondered how Edward was fairing. This Earth Day, I am thankful for the natural wonders of Florida and the magic we can experience when we get out and explore! #FloridaWild #LoveFL

Having passed through ownership by seven different countries, St. Croix island is home to a complex history of architecture that has seen many buildings reused and built upon in multiples phases throughout its history.

Photograph @massimobassano A fin whale softly swim close to my zodiac at Faial island in Azores. It always amazes me to see this giant animals swimming quietly as she could be a little cat. I've seen all over the World but anytime it's like the first. After many years of whale hunting, and I can say, even if it's sad, ecological hunting because azorians never used big ship and cannons, but always small boats, paddling behind the whales and using harpoon. With lots of risks for the crew, in fact azorians had the highest number of dead during hunting. Now, Azores one of the most important area to observe whales. A Sanctuary of whale watching. Perfect tribute to the wonderful animals to protect. The fin whale (Balaenoptera physalus), also called the finback whale, razorback, or common rorqual, is a marine mammal belonging to the suborder of baleen whales. It is the second largest animal after the blue whale, growing to 27.3 metres (89.5 ft) long and weighing nearly 74 tonnes (73 long tons; 82 short tons). The American naturalist Roy Chapman Andrews called the fin whale "the greyhound of the sea... for its beautiful, slender body is built like a racing yacht and the animal can surpass the speed of the fastest ocean steamship. #azores #whale #finwhale #whalewatching #atlantic #portugal @natgeo
