The Best Photographs of 2018 Chosen by National Geographic and They Are Amazing
9The Eagle Huntress
This is a photograph of Aegerim, a 12-year-old girl from Mongolia who aspires to be an eagle huntress. She is learning the ancient art of using eagles to hunt in the high up Altai Mountains of Mongolia. The photograph was taken by Diana Ishii.
10Elephant crossing river
The best thing about wildlife photos is the fact that they never fail to enthrall or thrill the viewer. Animals in the wild are a favorite subject among photographers. This is an elephant crossing crocodile-infested waters in Africa. This was taken by Cameron Black.
This is another split second photograph taken by Thomas Albright and it shows brown bears frolicking in a river obviously fishing for salmon as bears love fish. However, one might have got too adventurous in testing his skills and slips over the top.
Flamingoes are a dream to shoot because they look very graceful. This was titled Flamenco Del Caribe Salinera Salsol and was taken by photographer Fernanda Linage. Every year these red flamingoes come to nest in the red lagoons of the Yucatan peninsula.
