In some aspects, animals can be just like humans. They can be kind, caring, affectionate, but also dangerous and ready for a fight. They can suffer or jump with joy, be happy or sad. Macedonian photographer Goran Anastasovski has devoted the past ten years of his life to capturing intimate portraits of animals at the local zoo, particularly big cats. His sepia portraits of tigers, lions, and leopards show the wide range of emotions and behaviors we can see in these magnificent creatures.

A young woman from India recently had a close encounter with a tiger, which she succeeded in fighting off with a stick. The story is impressive as it is, but what’s even more impressive is what she did right after the fight. With her face covered in blood, she took out her phone and–no, she didn’t call a doctor–she took a selfie.
The Nikon KeyMission cameras have had a bit of a tough time. First the KeyMission 360 suffered a long delayed launch. Then the line was split into three separate cameras, all of which felt a bit underwhelming. Finally they were unleashed on the general public, few of which seem particularly impressed by them.
One thing that’s not been mentioned much is the KeyMission’s durability. Chances are, this is because few have had one long enough to really put it to the test. But not so much for Russel Edwards at RSE Photography. He set one up in a tiger’s enclosure during feeding. One tiger, though, seemed a little confused about what was on the menu.
We’ve seen the encounter of wild animals and drones, and what it looks like when a real bird takes down an electronic one. A recent video from CCTV+ shows another example of wild animals versus a drone. In this video, a pack of Siberian tigers chases the drone around while it’s recording them. Eventually, it takes just one swing of a paw to take it down, after quite an unusual game of cat and mouse. Or cat and bird, if that makes slightly more sense.
There are definitely a lot of possible applications of drones, and they seem to increase as technology progresses. And Harbin Siberian Tiger Park in China uses the drones for quite an unusual purpose – exercise.
