Photographer @michaelmelford captures autumn oak and maple trees along a road at Woodlawn, a 1,100 acre tract of upland meadows and woods. Temperature, sunlight and soil moisture all play a role in how the leaves will look in the fall. The best weather for brilliant fall foliage is a growing season with ample moisture followed by a dry, cool and sunny autumn with warm days and cool, but frostless nights. #autumn #meadow #foliage #fall #sunlight

Photographer George Shiras III (January 1, 1859 – March 24, 1942) was a U.S. Representative from the state of Pennsylvania. Both during and after his time in Congress, Shiras participated in biological research and photography, to the extent that National Geographic has described him as "the father of wildlife photography" for his early use of camera traps and flash photography. This image was published in National Geographic in 1921. #blackandwhite #wildlife #cameartrap #tbt #throwbackthursday #vintage

To shoot "The Dogs of War" for National Geographic, @adamfergusonphoto returned to an area he was very familiar with: Afghanistan. In this photo, Ferguson captures the moment when Army Staff Sgt. Cartwright orders his lab to sniff for explosives in a basement in Kandahar. This is an act that could mean life or death for both of them. #photooftheweek #afghanistan #dogs #wardog #combat

Did you know that the Kermode bear is also known as the "spirit bear"? This rare subspecies of the American black bear lives in the Central and North Coast regions of British Columbia, Canada. Their color is due to a double recessive gene unique in the subspecies. They are not albinos and not any more related to polar bears or the "blonde" brown bears of Alaska than other members of their species. Sometimes, a mother black bear can have a white cub.

This image is one of contrast at its purest. Here, @thomaspeschak portrays one of the deadliest jellyfish species in the world as a vision of serenity. It is hard to imagine that anything so beautiful could cause enormous pain and even death. #photooftheweek #jellyfish #underwater #sealife #wildlife

September is National Honey Month in the United States. Did you know that sealed honey doesn't spoil even after thousands of years because most microorganisms do not grow in honey? Honey use and production have a long and varied history as an ancient activity, depicted in Valencia, Spain by a cave painting of humans foraging for honey at least 8,000 years ago.
