A single frame from a timelapse that I shot this summer for a film about the first marine protected area in the Americas for the Bahamas National Trust. The best thing about this photo is that it's as magical as it looks - that water is a portal to another dimension that is home to magnificent creatures.

I'm excited to share this short film I just finished for the +National Wildlife Federation about the reintroduction of bison to the Wind Rivers. This is an important and inspiring story during these times of slow progress for justice and the environment. Watch with good sound and share widely! And subscribe to my Youtube channel to see more work coming soon. For more info about bison reintroduction please visit: www.nwf.org/tribalbison or contact Garrit Voggesser directly at voggesser@nwf.org

I've been having a hard time posting photos lately. It seems frivolous to be posting pretty pictures given the current cultural and political crises. Then again, everything I post is political. I do what I do in an effort to influence people and to hopefully inspire them to care for and protect the natural world that sustains us. Just look at this blue-ringed octopus! Encountering this guy on a night dive was the highlight of my recent shoot in Raja Ampat. This guy is about the size of a golf ball and they are recognized as one of the world's most venomous marine animals. Their venom contains tetrodotoxin, a neurotoxin powerful enough to kill humans. If this were video, you could see that those incredible blue rings actually flash and pulsate to warn predators off. But they're chill if you don't bother them. Such an insanely amazing little animal.
