In our new series “Instants,” the Proof staff brings you a snapshot of recent dispatches from the @natgeo Instagram feed. Follow us to experience more from National Geographic on Instagram. If you polled the average person and asked what they enjoy about National Geographic, it’s likely they would mention great animal photography. While that’s a big part of what we do, there are many facets to our work. But recently there’s been a rash of extremely adorable animal photos on our Instagram feed, so we just had to share. There’s Steve McCurry’s elephant babe, Aaron Huey’s bear and caribou friends, Ami Vitale’s rhinos, Charlie Hamilton James’ snow otters, Paul Nicklen’s wolves, and Robert Clark’s dog portraits.
