|Photos by David Guttenfelder @dguttenfelder | Protests continued in Minneapolis on May 29, 2020 following the death of George Floyd. Last night, the governor deployed the national guard to Minneapolis, and today the Defense Department ordered the army to deploy military police units to Minneapolis as protests continue to intensify across the country.||2020/05/31 02:42:56||311,218||4,341|
|Photos by David Guttenfelder @dguttenfelder | Protests in Minneapolis on May 28, 2020. Demonstrations outside of the Minneapolis police station where officer Derek Chauvin worked. Demonstrators set fire to the station, cars in the street, and area buildings as protests over the killing of George Floyd intensified. Tonight the governor deployed the National Guard, locking down the area where these images were taken, and a curfew is in place starting at 8 p.m.||2020/05/30 09:22:37||286,759||4,753|
|Photo by Trevor Frost @tbfrost | A green striped vine snake coils in the hands of a herpetologist at @hojanueva in the Peruvian Amazon. Snakes are more complex and intelligent than most of us think. Luckily science is beginning to show this. A new study published in the journal Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology suggests garter snakes "are surprisingly social, forming 'friendships' with fellow serpents." One thing is for sure: we still have so much to learn about our world, especially the intelligence of nonhuman animals. Head over to @tbfrost to see more photos of snakes!||2020/05/31 15:39:34||279,893||1,022|
|Photo by @nicholesobecki | Few of us have experienced isolation as profound as that brought on by the coronavirus. There has been pleasure in that for some, hunkering into the quiet life, while for others it’s felt like a cage. The closest I’ve come to experiencing this degree of social isolation is while mountain climbing. This is a view of the Himalaya range peaking out behind the clouds along the route to Everest Base Camp. For those weeks I spent in Nepal, the rest of the world seemed to fall away. These days I think of those who are most experienced in seclusion: from astronauts to those forced into solitary confinement, from Antarctic researchers to those who ascend the highest peaks of our world. To see more of my work, please follow @nicholesobecki.||2020/05/30 15:39:58||257,783||614|
|Photo by Keith Ladzinski @ladzinski | A snow petrel aggressively pursues a nesting competitor along the high cliffs of interior Antarctica. The orange substance on the leading bird is bile that's been regurgitated by the bird in pursuit. This potentially can be a death sentence, as it removes the oil (from feathers) that helps keep the bird buoyant while swimming at sea. These birds are nesting roughly 200 miles (just over 300 km) from the ocean, and every three to five days they make the arduously long flight to the ocean to collect food for their nesting chicks. The ability to float in water provides a time to rest and to collect food—without the necessary oil, it can result in an exhausted bird drowning.||2020/05/30 07:35:56||242,552||1,042|

|Photo by David Guttenfelder @dguttenfelder | Mourners and protesters gather around a memorial created for George Floyd at the area where he died. In response to protests over the past five days, Minnesota’s governor called in the National Guard today, but declined the deployment of military police.||2020/05/31 06:45:16||220,815||1,148|
|Photo by @jasperdoest | Ollie, a rock pigeon seen behind my six-year-old daughter, joins the family for sushi takeout—a wedding anniversary celebration at home because restaurants are still closed. I heard Ollie approaching from the hallway, and grabbed my camera just in time to get this shot. During our time in isolation, I found an unexpected subject in a pair of bold pigeons (which my daughters named Ollie and Dollie) that returned to nest on our balcony and have pushed their way into our household. Follow along @jasperdoest for more images on the human-wildlife connection. #pandemicpigeons #urbanwildlife #pigeon #netherlands #balconybirds||2020/05/30 23:38:20||140,669||649|
|Photo by @williamodaniels | Coal-storage station in the city of Novaya Chara, in Russia's Far East, 2015. Since the 1980s, the city has since lost half its population despite its mining potential. The region is thought to possess the largest vanadium reserve in the world, the greatest titanium resources in Russia, as well as iron and copper, but its remoteness makes mining difficult.

|Photo by @acacia.johnson | A brown bear nurses her cubs on the shore of Chinitna Bay, a renowned brown bear viewing area in Alaska's Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. Here, large numbers of brown bears gather to graze on sedge grass, fish for salmon, and dig for clams–and people come from all over the world to watch them. But the bears are endangered by the proposed Pebble Mine, which would risk poisoning the ecosystem and involve a sprawling transport corridor within these bears' wandering ranges. Follow me at @acacia.johnson to learn more about protecting this remarkable wilderness. #alaska #brownbears #pebblemine

|Video by @renan_ozturk | Clouds hug the mighty Onekotan volcano of the Kuril island chain in the North Pacific. This region is one of least understood and least protected ecosystems. I learned about it during a 1,000-mile traverse with biologist Vladimir Burkanov, who has dedicated his life to studying the region. Although some areas are at risk of being "loved to death" if we overshare them on this platform, Vladimir urges us to post these images to draw more attention to this place....and hopefully support more research. (Original music composed by Logan Nelson and performed by Tim Fain on violin as part of the #FromKurilsWithLove film). See @renan_ozturk for more from the Kuril Islands.||2020/05/31 03:42:04||131,180||529|
|Photo by @edkashi | André Sayegh, mayor of Paterson, and his wife, Farhanna Sayegh, are seen with two of their three children (Sophia and Kayla) at their Paterson home, in New Jersey. Mayor Sayegh and the first lady are both survivors of the COVID-19 virus. Since the pandemic hit in March, they have recorded and broadcast a weekly show called "Silk City Story Time," in which to they read children’s books to residents.
