    Indonesia Lizard looks like an unlikely dentist as it examines the mouth of a sharp-toothed crocodile 03/26/2015 Hendy Mp/Solent News/SIPA A lizard looks like an unlikely dentist as it examines the mouth of a sharp-toothed crocodile. The dragon forest lizard peered right into the croc's mouth and then proved how comfortable the two are together by climbing onto the predator's back for a little break. The pair certainly make an unlikely couple as they spend time together in the grass. But photographer Hendy Mp said that as they are pets, they are relaxed in each other's company. The 25-year-old from Sambas, West Kalimantan, Indonesia, took his pets to a field in Borneo, Indonesia, for a chance to stretch their legs. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.

    Huge cluster of sardines 03/26/2015 SOLENT NEWS/SIPA Hungry sharks, dolphins, gannets and even a whale take part in a mass feast on a school of a staggering nine million sardines. The huge cluster of sardines form a ball as a defence mechanism to try and look bigger but that doesn't stop the predators attacking them. Dolphins lead the hunt and attack first, causing the school of fish to split up - after it is a free for all between the sharks, gannets and whale. The frenzy was 25 metres beneath the surface and lasted for over a staggering seven hours. Wildlife photographer Michael Aw was underwater and managed to capture the spectacular feeding frenzy which took place in The Wild Coast, on the East coast of South Africa. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.

A photographer was inspired by classic oil paintings when he snapped the glacier photos on the Rakaposhi Haramosh mountain range, in northern Pakistan. Glaciers are created by compressed fallen snow that, over many years, form into large ice masses. The photos were taken in Gilgit™Baltistan, in Pakistan, during a sightseeing trip.

    Worlds Cities Little Planets 03/24/2015 AIRPANO/CATERSNEWS/SIPA **PLEASE USE CORRECT BYLINE** PIC FROM AIRPANO / CATERSNEWS - (PICTURED: - Sydney and the Sydney Opera House, Australia) Some of the worlds most iconic cities have been photographed as youve never seen them before in the shape of tiny round planets. By using a pioneering method of aerial photography, each location can be now seen at a full 360 degree angle.

When photographer arrived at Qifu villiage and asking about Chen Lianxue, every villiager knew that Chen Lianxue was making an airplane. The silvery airplane was 4.2-meter long, 5.1-meter wide and 1.6 meter high, arriving at the roof of his house. The body was made of aluminium alloy and the framework of steel reinforcement. Power is generated by motorcycle engines at the two wings. There's a seat for one person in the cabin. "It's not difficult for an airplane to fly into the sky as long as you know well about aerodynamics," Chen Lianxue who has never received any perfessional training on flight said, "I have had the idea of making an airplane since 4-5 years ago, and I've learned on TV th at many people made planes on their own, so I wanted to have a try. Due to my children's marriage and job issues, I didn't have time and ability to do it. But now my son got married, my daught has a job, all the debt is paid off, I can start think about it." Chen Lianxue is only junior middle school edication level, he has never taken or even seen a plane. He used to be a welder, a lathe worker and a machinery maintenance worker. According to what he said, his plane has flied for twice before, but was forced to land after flying only a very short distance. Now he has spent 30,000 yuan on it. He planned to have its third flight at the end of this year and hoped that his plane dream will come true./SIPAASIA_102711/Credit:Zheng Bing/Sipa Asia/SIPA/1503241046

PICKING up a tiny tea-pot with its paws, a little red squirrel struggles to prepare its morning tea. The curious rodent is obviously suspicious of its new toy and after holding the copper tea-pot above its head, the squirrel attempts to wear the prop as a hat. The playful squirrel was photographed by carpenter Geert Weggen in his garden in Bispgarden, Sweden. The 46-year-old, originally of Assen, Holland, said "The squirrels come into my garden every day and head straight to the platform that stands outside my kitchen window. "I leave nuts and food on the platform outside, as well as props, which I make and buy." Geert, who has been photographing squirrels for the past two years, spends around 10 minutes a day taking pictures in his garden.

This is the dramatic moment a fearless buffalo fended off a pride of SEVEN lions after winning a bloody battle for its life. Pictured flinging a lion from its blood-stained back, the brave buffalo bull escaped the clutches of the hungry lions after an epic hour-long struggle in the Londolozi Game Reserve in South Africa. On the hunt for a morning snack, the beasts clashed after the lions spotted the lone buffalo had strayed from its herd to have a drink from a nearby river. Sensing an opportunity for an easy kill, one of the more experienced predators pounced on the 1,000 pound buffalo in an attempt to wrestle it to the ground.

The oriental plane tree was planted on the street in 1980s. As the river was next to the street, iron bars were installed there by the government. At the very beginning, the iron bars were about several meters away beside the tree. Two or three years later, the iron bars needed to be re-installed and had to be put on the position where the tree was. The worker didn't have the heart to cut it down, so let it grow between two bars. Unexpectedly, the tree grew so fast that the trunk was too thick and "swallowed" four iron bars beside.

    Biggest Lamb Born 03/16/2015 MERCURY PRESS/CATERS/SIPA PIC FROM MERCURY PRESS/CATERS NEWS (PICTURED: THE BIG ONE ENJOYS SOME TIME IN THE FIELD) The supersize ram - christened the Big One - was delivered by caesarean section on Tuesday evening, after the ewe went into labour almost a week early at Ty Mawr Farm, in Denbigh, North Wales. And farmers Edmund Evans and son Dafydd couldnt believe their eyes when it tipped the scales at a whopping 24 pounds 2 oz - almost three times the size of an average newborn lamb. Dafydd Fon Ifan, 18, said: The lamb is absolutely huge - he is spot on. The lamb was delivered about five days early so it makes you wonder what size it might have been if the pregnancy had gone to term.

And after getting its fill of water the springbok simply walked away without giving the croc a second thought.

    Louise Low Seok Loo's Bra Art is the Breast You've Ever Seen! 03/11/2015 CB2/ZOB/WENN.COM/SIPA Louise Low Seok Loo, a Malaysian artist, uses thousands of bra cups to form sculptures and cover other objects. Her shark called Fatal Attraction was the centrepiece of an exhibit last year in George Town, Malaysia. These bra works form her attempt to combat a superstition about women's underwear. Whilst it might seem like a light-hearted piece the artist explains how it makes a statement on domestic violence: “This sculpture of the shark is a narrative of how victims are lured into believing that their love partner is the protective gender of the weak. "I constructed a heart shape in the shark's mouth as a love bait to trap the unsuspecting fishes. "It is similar to domestic violence where the love partner still believe their abusive half one. "As for the shark, I applied a soft surface by using bras to construct its form; my work is not about how the shark captures its prey, it is how the smarter fish adjust the bra stripes to escape the temptation." Whilst the overall response to the project was good Louise did receive negative feedback, particularly from Chinese men who believe that the bra shark could bring misfortune if they ever touched the bras. “From the reaction of the public I decided to extend my subject matter to another project, ‘Lean on you and me’, to investigate more about the taboo. “I affixed bra cups on sofa, walls, and vehicles; the original plan of the Bra Vehicles series was to record the public reaction as I drove around the town of Georgetown in Penang Island, but I was warned by traffic police that it is an offense….so I failed to do so. “I have received a lot of media coverage during the exhibition, mostly negative news, and I received more negative feedbacks from locals too. From this, I know I did the right thing about the investigation. :) haha” Featuring: Atmosphere Where: Malaysia, China When: 11 Mar 2015 Credit: Supplied by WENN.com/DWP_bra_art_installations_110315.wenn22295386/1503111509

Chelsey, who is now engaged to marry partner Ross Stephens after he proposed following her surgery, said: "It was just a joke to make me laugh but I had to admit it was true. "I wanted to be able to wear nice lingerie and backless clothes but I couldn't because I felt out of proportion without my padded bra on". /Rex_Mrs_Doubtfire_bood_job_4514948D//1503110741

    Elephant mud rescue 03/03/2015 CATERS NEWS AGENCY/SIPA PIC FROM CATERS NEWS - (PICTURED: The elephant got stuck in the mud ) - It was alls well that ends well for this young elephant after it fell into a mud pit in Kenya. After wallowing in the dank ditch for up to 12 hours, this is the dramatic moment a digger saved the large mammal from a trunkful of trouble in a heroic rescue attempt. The heart-rending rescue took place near Makindu in Southern Kenya, where local farmers were shocked to find the distressed male elephant desperately trying to escape from a deep mud pit. Unable to help the large mammal climb the steep clay sides, wildlife conservationists enlisted the aid of a heroic construction company, who used their digger to plough the elephant to safety. Conservation scientist and wildlife photographer Jeremy Goss, 30, was on the scene to capture these dramatic photos and video footage of the courageous rescue on farmland bordering Chyulu Hills National Park.

  • Djibouti and the Southern Red Sea

    Djibouti and the Southern Red Sea 03/02/2015 SIPANY/SIPA Astronauts flying on the International Space Station took this photograph of the south end of the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. Here the coastlines of Africa (upper part of the image) and Arabia (lower part) are less than 30 kilometers (20 miles) apart at the Mandeb Strait. (Note that north is to the lower right in this image.) Most of the small country of Djibouti, with a landscape dominated by dark volcanic rocks, appears in this view. Its long axis stretches roughly 220 kilometers (140 miles) from the Gulf of Aden coast to Lake Abhe. Djibouti is strategically positioned on one of the world's busiest shipping lanes, with access to the Red Sea (and the Mediterranean beyond) and the Indian Ocean. For this reason, Djibouti was occupied by France during the colonial era, while the opposite coast of Yemen was occupied by the British. Today Djibouti's eponymous port, located in the protected Tadjoura Gulf, acts as a key refueling point and import-export hub for cities inland in Ethiopia. Djibouti also hosts various foreign military bases. Astronaut photograph ISS042-E-280970 was acquired on February 17, 2014, with a Nikon D4 digital camera using a 116 millimeter lens, and is provided by the ISS Crew Earth Observations Facility and the Earth Science and Remote Sensing Unit, Johnson Space Center. The image was taken by a member of the Expedition 42 crew. The image has been cropped and enhanced to improve contrast, and lens artifacts have been removed. The International Space Station Program supports the laboratory as part of the ISS National Lab to help astronauts take pictures of Earth that will be of the greatest value to scientists and the public, and to make those images freely available on the Internet. Additional images taken by astronauts and cosmonauts can be viewed at the NASA/JSC Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth. Caption by M.

  • Bang Kachao: Bangkok's Green Lung
    SIPAUSA30123299
    Bang Kachao: Bangkok's Green Lung 03/02/2015 SIPANY/SIPA Editor's Note: Today's caption is the answer to Earth Observatory's February 2015 image puzzler. In the heart of Thailand's most populous city, an oasis stands out from the urban landscape like a great "green lung." That's the nickname given to Bang Kachao - a lush protected area that has escaped the dense development seen elsewhere in Bangkok. The city is built on the alluvial plain of the Chao Phraya River. Toward the southern end, near the Gulf of Thailand, is an old meander that never quite formed an oxbow lake. That meander traces the boundary of Bang Kachao, which TIME magazine once called the "best urban oasis" in Asia. On February 2, 2014, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured this natural-color view of Bang Kachao (also called Bang Krachao or Bang Kra Jao). The top image is a close up view of the region outlined with a rectangle in the bottom image. Bang Kachao is actually an island - albeit an artificial one. The Klong Lad Pho canal, built at the neck of the oxbow, allows water from the Chao Phraya to more quickly reach the sea. The canal contains floodgates that control water levels to prevent flooding. Immediately west of the canal is the Bhumibol Bridge, which twice crosses the Chao Phraya River. Look east of the mid-bridge interchange, however, and a stark transition occurs, as the urban jungle gives way to about 2,000 hectares of rural jungle, villages, and farmland. According to a travel story in The New York Times, Bang Kachao is gaining popularity among tourists lured by bike tours, a floating farmers' market, and the relaxed atmosphere.
