Highland Cattle, Scotland - by Patrick Kelley - While hiking in Scotland we encountered an ancient breed of highland cattle known as "kyloe." They are stout and have adapted to grazing on plants that many other cattle avoid. Their long shaggy hair protects them from the cold winters and rainy weather. They curiously approached us because to them, I'm sure we were the unusual-looking visitors!
The Most Iconic Photographs From National Geographic's 125-Year History. Perhaps the most iconic National Geographic photo, Steve McCurry snapped this picture of an Afghan girl in a Pakistan refugee camp in 1984. It almost went unnoticed, until one editor rescued it from a pile and stuck it on the June 1985 Cover. Absolutely stunning photo. #nationalgeographic
