Instagram is a great place to showcase photos of your cat stuck in a tree (which I once did) or snapshots of our recent smoky, fiery sunsets, but it’s also an outlet for some amazingly talented photographers.

Time Magazine recently featured what it considers to be the best in the U.S. in its “Instagram Photographers to Follow in All 50 States.”

Making the list in Montana is Ami Vitale.

“A National Geographic photographer, Ami Vitale uses Instagram to showcase images that speak of the connections that exist between people, communities and nature,” Time wrote about Vitale.

Vitale’s work has taken her from the ranches of Montana to the plains of Africa.

See some of her photos here:
