悬崖跳水者,Mazatlan, 墨西哥(摄影:W.E. Garrett

 在墨西哥的Mazatlan 一处悬崖上,一位勇敢的跳水者乘巨浪拍岸时纵身一跳。浪拍时水深可达3.7米,而浪退时水深不过一半。A daring diver times his plunge with an incoming wave as he plummets from a cliff in Mazatlan, Mexico. When the surf surges in, 12 feet (3.7 meters) of water lies below; outgoing seas leave half that depth.

打哈欠的熊猫,昆明,中国(摄影:Jodi Cobb

在昆明圆通动物园内,一只大熊猫(Ailuropoda melanoleuca)在打哈欠。野生大熊猫只生活在华中某些偏远山区,生长在凉湿的高山森林地带的箭竹是熊猫的主食。

 A giant panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) yawns in its enclosure at the Yuantong Zoo in Kunming, China. Wild pandas live only in remote, mountainous regions in central China. These high forests of bamboo (their primary food) are cool and wet—just as pandas like it.

珊瑚花园的潜水者,多米尼加岛,加勒比海(摄影:Bruce Dale

在多米尼加岛Scotts Head外海,一组潜水者欣赏着水下海绵和珊瑚花园的美景——这样的潜水游客队伍越来越大。多米尼加是加勒比海地区最富饶的水下生态系统所在,水下能见度可达30米。Off Scotts Head, Dominica Island, a sunken garden of sponges and coral rewards a visitor, part of a growing stream of divers discovering Dominica’s marine life. With one of the most vibrant underwater ecosystems in the Caribbean, Dominica offers scuba divers aquarium-clear water with visibility that can reach 100 feet (30 meters).

北极光,Trapper,阿拉斯加(摄影:Thomas J. Abercrombie

漫漫冬夜,阿拉斯加的夜空,极光炫丽多彩。照片曝光时间达10分钟,拍于Trapper溪附近,北极光照亮了地平线,旋过12月星空的北斗七星,此刻在左上角呈条纹状。这里的常居民每年能看见数十次极光,再往北的Point Barrow地区甚至能看见上百次。

Spectacular sky shows brighten the long winter nights for Alaska's year-round residents. This display of northern lights sets the horizon aglow at Trapper Creek. Stars of the Big Dipper, upper left, wheeling through the December sky, show as streaks in this ten-minute exposure. Residents of the region witness dozens of auroras yearly; those in the Point Barrow area farther north see as many as a hundred.

Petrohué瀑布,智利(摄影:George F. Mobley

在安第斯山脉Osorno火山和缓的山谷,Petrohué河上的瀑布如诗如画。这里是智利Vicente Perez Rosales国家公园的美景之一。

The gentle falls of the Petrohué River frame the graceful slopes of Osorno Volcano, part of the Andes Mountain. The scene is but one memorable view within Chile's Vicente Perez Rosales National Park.

天鹅绒虫,汉堡,德国(摄影:O. Louis Mazzatenta

这些相互缠绕的天鹅绒虫(甲状虫)是距今5.3亿年前寒武纪生命大爆发后残留至今的活化石。约2.5亿年前,天鹅绒虫进化为陆生生物,如今只在一些极其阴暗潮湿的环境中可以存活,如哥斯达黎加森林下方的落叶堆下。本照片拍摄于德国的汉堡大学。

These intertwined velvet worms, or onychophorans, are living fossils, holdovers of the Cambrian explosion of life-forms that occurred about 530 million years ago. Velvet worms became land dwellers some 250 million years ago but survive today only in dark, moist habitats such as the leaf litter in Costa Rican forests. These worms were photographed at the University of Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany.
