NatureNG11bThe rebirth of first Atayal tribe after 921 earthquake
Photo and caption by Haw Haw Tseng
The Atayal (Taiya) tribe, which is the second largest tribal group of fourteen indigenous tribes in Taiwan, resides mostly in central and northern Taiwan.It is rumored that Ruei-yian tribe is the first Atayal tribe.However, the 921 earthquake in 1999 shattered the dwellings and landscapes in Ruei-yian tribe.The reconstructions has lasted for 12 years. In 2011 , the tribe that is reborn seems like a castle floating in the sky, winning it the laudatory title “Hanging city”

NatureNG11cFragile Beauty
Photo and caption by Ben Bowes
In the reefs of Apo Island, an MPA off the coast of Dauin in the Philippines, lies a beautiful, vast stretch of corals, that illuminate in the glistening sunlight during a cloudless day. The coral reefs look like a beautiful metropolis full of wondrous varieties of luminous structures. Within the thousands of different species that take residence in this metropolis, one particular fish I came across during my dives caught my attention. The fragile nature of the juvenile Clark’s anemone fish, taking shelter in the anemone made me realise how delicate these beautiful fish are to human impacts.

NatureNG11dTiger in the Tunnel
Photo and caption by A Apana
This sub-adult tiger was photographed at India’s Tadoba Andhari Tiger Reserve. Seeing the bamboo tunnel, I had envisaged this image. He was around a bend in the road and we could not even see him as we were the last jeep. As luck would have it he then got up and walked around, making us the first vehicle. He wandered all over the road and just for an instance paused in the middle of the road, which is when I took this image.

NatureNG11eWhitebark Pine – Smoky Hills
Photo and caption by Paul Glasser
This photo, taken on the north side of Oregon’s Mt. Hood thirty minutes before sunset, shows a portion of a dead whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis), an endangered tree that grows at high elevations across North America. These trees survive heavy snow loads and high winds by growing in mats low to the ground. Ironically it is only when they have died and shed their needles that the stark beauty and sinuous grace of their limbs are revealed. The hills in the background are bathed in smoke from the many fires that were burning across Oregon at the time.

NatureNG11fAutumn Storm
Photo and caption by Amanda Beardslee
On my drive home from work I rounded the corner and found this amazing cloud formation during an autumn storm. This is snapped on the side of the road with my iPhone, no filters. Words cannot describe how beautiful it was to see, and the colors were amazing the way they contrasted with each other.

A cheetah and her cubs huddle together for warmth during one cold evening downpour.

NatureNG11hWalking on water
Photo and caption by Jonathan Armstrong
In remote parts of Alaska, foxes are often bold and unafraid of people. Last summer I was able to closely observe a young red fox, following close behind as she trotted through the brush searching for salmonberries, or waded the lake shore looking for fish carcasses. Once I even got to watch her taunt a grizzly bear as if she were playing a game of tag. As a storm came in one evening, I snuck outside hoping to take her portrait in dramatic light. I used a diffused light off-camera so that I could illuminate the fox while still capturing the dark mood of the storm.

NatureNG11iShoulder Check
Photo and caption by Henrik Nilsson
A wild short eared owl completes a shoulder check in case something was missed. Northern harriers were also hunting in the field and these raptors will often steal a kill from the owls.
