Weaverbird nests at Kenya’s Samburu National Reserve
Among the 350 species of birds found here at the Samburu National Reserve, some of the most industrious are weaverbirds. This family of birds is so named for the intricately constructed nests that many of the species weave from twigs, grasses, and leaves. You can see the birds’ handiwork on this acacia tree, where nests hang like ornaments. Some weaverbirds build elaborate nests that house hundreds of birds, with separate chambers for each pair, creating natural apartment complexes in the treetops.

Great Fountain Geyser, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming
Two thirds of the world’s geysers are located here at Yellowstone National Park, each with its own unique characteristics. Shown here is the Great Fountain Geyser, which erupts every 9 to 15 hours with sprays that reach 75 feet to over 220 feet in the air. More than just a spectacle, these geysers are evidence of the volcanic activity simmering beneath the surface. Yellowstone’s last major volcanic eruption occurred about 630,000 years ago, and the potential for future activity is the subject of much curiosity—and speculation.

Gardens by the Bay nature park, Singapore
This futuristic nature park is part of Singapore’s vision to transform itself from a ‘Garden City’ to a ‘City in a Garden.’ Constructed in 2012, the 250-acre destination is known for sustainable development, as well as stunning garden exhibits. The Cloud Forest exhibit shown here features the world’s tallest indoor waterfall, cascading down a 115-foot Cloud Mountain that’s covered in plant life. In the park’s Supertrees Grove, you’ll find vertical gardens that use solar energy to light up at night.
