“Honey, take a photo of me in this dark cave. I’m sure there’s nothing in here.”

I want to try to fish this way!
Catching Fish: Fishermen use fire to draw fish close to the boat and then catch them. (© Chang Ming Chih/National Geographic Photo Contest)
This would be super creepy to come across while camping.
Guardians of the Forest: Deep in the Colombian Amazon, Yucuna indians stand dressed in traditional tribal attire for the Baile del Muñeco, or puppet dance, a celebration of the abundance of the Chontaduro fruit. While traditional indigenous customs are fast being lost throughout the Amazon jungle, here, far down the Caqueta river and few miles from the Brazilian border, traditions are still very much intact. The costumes are still made entirely from natural materials, predominantly tree bark, during this three day festival. (© Piers Calvert/National Geographic Photo Contest)
