National Geographic’s Most Incredible Photos of 2016

National Geographic has taken the time to sift through millions of photos to bring us their best photos of 2016. 


2016 was considered by many as a “down year” as many strange, unexpected and downright depressing things happened all throughout.

Yet, despite how bad 2016 may have been in the eyes of many, some pretty awesome moments still happened last year, and the following photos, courtesy of National Geographic, are proof of that.

The Scavenger

This photo was originally published in “Vultures are Revolting. Here’s Why We Need To Save Them.” in January of 2016.

As you can see from the blood dripping from its beak, this vulture, who are scavengers by nature, recently has had its meal. To help make it an effective scavenger, the vulture’s neck and head have little to no feather, keeping gore, guts and fecal matter from clinging while it’s diving deep into a carcass.
