It’s #Thanksgiving week and for many of us, that means spending time with our family. If you’re ever deep in a food coma and your family starts to show the personalities like this group of cute (and weird looking) burrowing #owls, it’s time to #OptOutside. #RockyMountain Arsenal National #WildlifeRefuge is just outside of #Denver and is a great excuse to get out of the house and enjoy someone else’s awkward family.

Photo by @BrianSkerry A pod of Spinner Dolphins swim gently in the waters off Oahu, Hawaii. Spinners are some of the most social of dolphin species, rarely seen alone and typically found in larger pods. They forage at night offshore in deep water, then come into shallow bays in the morning to socialize and rest. The Hawaiian spinners have a beautiful tri-coloration. These animals are considerably smaller in size compared to species like bottlenose. Coverage from the May 2015 @natgeo cover story about dolphins. #Follow @BrianSkerry to see more ocean wildlife pics and see him lecturing live at the Goodman Theater in Chicago on December 7th and 8th!

These cubs will stay with her for two to three years before they head off on their own.

I had a dream last night that I was swimming in the ocean with huge tiger sharks. They were all around me but somehow, I felt calm . It reminded me of this great moment when @juansharks and @oceanicramsey introduced @cristinamittermeier and I to this large female tiger shark off the coast of #Oahu. Here, Juan frames up her portrait. Ocean and Juan travel around the world swimming and photographing all species of sharks and often ones with the worst reputations. They aim to dispel the myths surrounding these often misunderstood creatures. It was a privilege to spend time in the sea with #hawaiians as they have a deep respect for all creatures in this marine ecosystem and realize that the big sharks are crucial to maintaining balance. #shark #tigershark #oahu #hawaii #gratitude #explore #nature #smile #love #beauty #adventure #travel @natgeocreative @thephotosociety #instagood #tbt #follow #followme #photooftheday #happy #tagforlikes #beautiful #like #picoftheday #summer #fun #friends
