Instagram is celebrated as an ideal hub for photography enthusiasts, and who better to showcase stunning pics than a magazine well-respected for its images? National Geographic knows its photographers deserve a platform, and that’s where their Instagram feed comes in.

Every day, the NatGeo feed publishes at least one photo from their magazine or unpublished reports, giving us a taste of what their photographers are experiencing in far-flung regions.

Some photos attract as many as 1400 comments and a 90,000 Likes.
