  • Photos by @dina_litovsky | Debutante balls are a curious, coming-of-age ritual for New York and international high society, a vestige of a bygone era. The debutantes, young women between 18 and 25, apply and are chosen based on their education, accomplishments, and background. Wearing long white gowns and gloves, the women are "introduced" to society in a lavish celebration at a ballroom in a New York hotel. It begins with a receiving line, followed by each debutante being presented in front of the guests as she takes a bow. Closing the formal part of the ceremony is a father-daughter dance, after which more dancing rounds off the night. A lot of my work explores rituals and rites of passage in different layers of society. To see more, follow me @dina_litovsky.

  • Photo by @kirstenluce // Sponsored by @samsungmobileusa // This was my first glance at the Canyon de Chelly, a national monument in northeastern Arizona. This view was from the White House Overlook in the late afternoon, when the sun hits the rocks at an angle and the light starts to turn golden. The canyon is believed to have been inhabited continuously for thousands of years and has petroglyphs and ruins from ancestral Puebloans. It is now part of the Navajo Nation. // Transform how you share your world with the @samsungmobileusa #GalaxyS20 5G series.

  • Photo by Daniella Zalcman @dzalcman | I was in Vietnam during the first two weeks of March when the government started to take increasingly strict measures to control the spread of COVID-19. To date, fewer than 200 people are known to be infected in the country. While there wasnt yet a call for sheltering in place, my cousins Quynh and Gioi were already choosing to isolate and stay at home—spending every evening serenely tending to their rooftop bonsai trees, in central Ho Chi Minh City. For more stories from Vietnam and beyond, follow me at @dzalcman, and stay safe.

  • Video by @bertiegregory | The friendliness of this eagle ray allowed me to get close enough for a good look at his face. He did laps around us for 54 minutes. You can see its upturned snout: These rays have the unique behavior of digging their snouts in the sand in search of crustaceans and mollusks. Once they’ve located prey, they use their specially shaped teeth plates to crush the shells or body structure.

  • Photo by @williamodaniels | Here is La Défense, the business district of Paris, on day 6 of the order to stay at home. La Défense is Europes largest purpose-built business district, with 180,000 daily workers. There is currently a nationwide confinement order in France, but as of now journalists with press cards are still allowed to go out to report on the crisis. Follow me on @williamodaniels for more coverage in France. Follow @natgeointhefield for real-time coverage of this developing story from photographers around the world.

  • Photo by Trevor Frost @tbfrost | The red vine snake (Siphlophis compressus) is a nocturnal and largely arboreal snake that feeds primarily on large lizards but is also known to consume small frogs. Like many snakes in the family Colubridae, it is rear fanged, which means it has two grooved teeth in the rear of its mouth and a Duvernoys gland that produces venom. The venom in the red vine snake, like most rear-fanged snakes, is not dangerous to humans. There are two notable exceptions: the boomslang and the twig snake, both of which have killed well-known herpetologists with their bites. This snake was photographed with the help of Peruvian nonprofit @hojanueva, which protects this snakes home. Want to see more snakes from the Amazon? Im @tbfrost.

  • Photo by Matthieu Paley @paleyphoto | I recently walked the banks of the Yamuna River in Delhi, India. Here, a stray dog makes its way back to the bank. This picture was accompanied by the stench of sewage. The 22-km (14 miles) stretch of this holy river that flows through Delhi is only 2 percent of its total length but accounts for 80 percent of the river’s pollution... Approximately 20 drains pour untreated sewage and other industrial waste into the river, and because of the high level of pollutants in the water, authorities have instructed people not to bathe their animals in the river. For more behind the scenes on this assignment, please visit my story on @paleyphoto #swachhbharat #cleanindiamission #plasticpollution #planetorplastic @insidenatgeo

  • Photo by @dina_litovsky | A lone street cleaner stands on St Marks Place in New York City. This East Village street is always bustling with people, but this last Sunday afternoon it was empty. The city that never sleeps eerily stands still. For more images, follow me @dina_litovsky.

  • Video by @joelsartore I A Bengal slow loris inspects its surroundings during a Photo Ark shoot at Singapore Zoo (@wrs.ig). The largest of its kind, its three times the size of the pygmy slow loris. Native to the forests of southeastern Asia, this species is increasingly seen out of its natural environment—in people’s homes, as it is routinely captured to become a household pet.

  • Photo by @newshatavakolian | Many of the young people in my apartment complex love to walk around with cell phones in one hand and a bottle of water in the other. Now disinfectant gels and sterilizing sprays have been added to their kit. Iran is among the worst hit countries by the coronavirus. #Iran Check out Nat Geos link in bio for more on this story.

  • Photos by @jasperdoest | Toshikazu Nobuhara, manager of the Awaji Island Monkey Center, feeds mikan oranges to Japanese macaques. After World War II, monkey parks were established in Japan to help the recovery of the monkey population and keep monkeys away from human habitations. Such provisioning with the absence of natural enemies has boosted monkey numbers. They’re so abundant now that more than 19,000 are culled in the wild each year to prevent the animals from raiding farmers’ crops. For more on this story, see the March issue of the magazine, and follow me @jasperdoest as I explore the complex human relationship with these Japanese macaques in Japan. #monkeys #monkeybusiness #monkeymadness #wildlifetourism #日本 #猿

  • Photos by Pete McBride @pedromcbride | When the world screeched toward quiet last week, I didn’t notice: I was at the edge of the globe, marveling at the roar of a different silence. As the power of our new, invisible viral enemy became evident, I was off the grid, far from human activity, listening to the cacophony of roughly 200,000 penguins on South Georgia Island, near Antarctica, for @natgeoexpeditions. When I hurriedly returned home, I discovered a wildly different world than the one I’d left just two weeks prior. On my last flight home, amazingly I was the only passenger. They would have gone on without me just to shuttle the airplane. To see more from South Georgia, follow @pedromcbride. #penguins #southgeorgia #nature #stayhome #covid19 Check out Nat Geos link in bio for more on this story.
