I find sharks a bit scary, but at the same time incredibly fascinating. Wildlife photographer Chris Fallows has depicted this impression of mine in his fantastic photo of a great white shark. In the image that has gone viral shortly after it was published, Chris managed to capture the incredible animal 12 feet in the air. He kindly shared his photo with us, along with some other images that he’s taken.
When photographer Jeff Wirth set up his trail camera on a log, he was hoping to take photos of bobcats. Little did he know that, other than wild animals, he’d also end up with a photo of a dude with a wild sense of humor. While he was going through photos, Jeff noticed a photo of a guy who struck a pose on the log. The photo made him laugh really hard, and Jeff kindly shared the laughs and the photo with the rest of us.
What would you if a bear approached you and started sniffing you? I’d probably scream and run for my life, but this lady saw a photo opportunity in it. A video recently emerged showing the woman as a bear approached her – and she took her phone out and snapped a selfie.
We love optical illusions, no matter if they were made with forced perspective, colors, or makeup. Indian wildlife photographer Sarosh Lodhi made one by snapping a photo at exactly the right time. He photographed two zebras, and people can’t seem to agree which one is looking at the camera. Can you guess which one is it?

As a kid growing up, I used to watch Looney Tunes cartoons all the time. The Road Runner cartoons were definitely favourites, as Wile E. Coyote attempts to capture or destroy him, but never quite manages to do so. As an adult, I got to visit Arizona and see roadrunners and coyotes out in their native habitat – although no chases.
Michael Thomas Bogan, assistant professor at the University of Arizona’s School of Natural Resources and the Environment, however, did manage to see a coyote chasing a roadrunner at the Santa Cruz River near Tucson, AZ. Thankfully for us, he managed to capture it on video, which he posted to Twitter.
The German Society for Nature Photography (GDT) has just announced winners of its annual Nature Photographer of the Year contest.

Peter Beard, a wildlife photographer, artist and writer, has died. He went missing on 31 March from his home in Montauk, Long Island. After nearly three weeks of search, the “last of the adventurers” was found dead. He was 82.
This is an awfully frustrating time for wildlife photographers right now. And anybody who has kids. You’re stuck at home, can’t go anywhere, can’t do anything, can’t see anything interesting. Well, Google has the answer – augmented reality.
Google’s mobile search has a feature which allows you to search for an animal which can then be placed into your environment using your smartphone’s camera and augmented reality. It even appears to pick up on the ambient lighting and be able to apply it in realtime, too.
