First learn everything from it, read everything, listen to everything. Tell yourself that it does not matter the chances of success. Then win the trust of Peter Timm, the first diver who, in 2000, saw through his mask the silhouette of ""the greatest zoological discovery of the twentieth century"" Consider real risks, prepare for them, look at irrational fears, tame them. Finally mock that the quest may be impossible, just make it look beautiful and honest. And so in 2010, at a depth of 120 meters, at the first second of the first dive, we saw and photographed for the first time the fish from the bottom of the ages, the one that was thought to have disappeared 65 million years ago: ""Gombessa"" the coelacanth.

Photo by <a href="/profile/simonnorfolkstudio" title="@simonnorfolkstudio - @simonnorfolkstudio Instagram Profile - hungram.com">@simonnorfolkstudio</a>  | Adanac Military Cemetery is a burial ground for those killed in the World War I. It's near the French villages of Miraumont, Pys and Courcelette. The cemetery was laid out after the Armistice of November 11, 1918, when graves were brought in from the battlefields around Courcelette and small cemeteries surrounding Miraumont. The cemetery was designed by Sir Herbert Baker and contains 3186 casualties of the war from the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.
I've been working for a couple of years now on a project about the aftermath of the war. For more on this and other projects, follow me <a href="/profile/simonnorfolkstudio" title="@simonnorfolkstudio - @simonnorfolkstudio Instagram Profile - hungram.com">@simonnorfolkstudio</a>

Video by <a href="/profile/amivitale" title="@amivitale - @amivitale Instagram Profile - hungram.com">@amivitale</a>  | Wild adult elephants drink and cool off at a watering on the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy. An elephant’s trunk typically holds around half of a gallon of water, but a big bull elephant can hold as much as 2.5 gallons. After spraying themselves, the elephants will often coat themselves with dust which acts as a bug repellent and sunblock.
Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy is home to Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (<a href="/profile/conservationorg" title="@conservationorg - @conservationorg Instagram Profile - hungram.com">@conservationorg</a> ) who provide critical operational support and work to scale the Reteti community-centered model to create lasting impacts worldwide.

Photo by George Steinmetz <a href="/profile/geosteinmetz" title="@geosteinmetz - @geosteinmetz Instagram Profile - hungram.com">@geosteinmetz</a>  | Epic flying last week over the Pyramids of Giza. I had tried for years, and was turned down even with Egyptian military helicopters. Last week Egypt hosted the world paramotor championships, and suddenly the impossible happened. This is me, the last one to land at sunset.
