    To photograph one of rarest creatures on Earth you have to be incredibly skilled and remarkably lucky. But Sergey Gorshkov is clearly both - as demonstrated by his stunning picture of a Siberian, or Amur, tiger deep in the forests of Russia's Far East. The image has just won him the title of Wildlife Photographer of the Year. The female tiger is seen embracing a tree, rubbing herself against the bark to leave her scent and mark territory in Land of the Leopard National Park. "The lighting, the colours, the texture - it's like an oil painting," says WPY chair...

    You know you are seriously in the doghouse when the family pooch makes the Christmas greeting but you’re left out. Such is the case for perpetually scandal-plagued Hunter Biden. He and wife Melissa were all-too-obviously missing from the Christmas card posted online by Papa Joe. Accompanying the card was a video that included two of the former VP’s German shepherds, Champ and Major Biden. Hunter, 49, and Melissa, 32, were nowhere in sight. Joe, 77, added insult to injury by writing, “When we say Merry Christmas from the entire Biden family, that means even the dogs” - but, alas, not...

    President Donald Trump hands down won throwback Thursday with an epic snap he shared showing him on stage standing next to Ronald Reagan. In the fantastic black-and-white shot, we get to see Trump rocking a black-tie look while standing next to the 40th president, who was also wearing a tuxedo at some kind of event, possibly for awards.

    Actress and activist Mia Farrow reacted to President Trump’s move to criminalize animal cruelty on Tuesday by resurfacing a photo of his eldest sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, posing with a dead leopard as part of a hunt in Zimbabwe that took place nearly a decade ago. The president on Tuesday signed H.R. 724, otherwise known as the Protect Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT). It criminalizes animal torture, specifically “crushing, burning, drowning, suffocating and impaling live animals, and other abuses such as sexually exploiting them,” according to the Humane Society.

    Well she’s impressive but she’s not that impressive. Conspiracy theorists are at it again over a 120-year-old photo depicting a girl who bears an uncanny resemblance to teen environmental activist Greta Thunberg. The photo, unearthed from archives at the University of Washington, shows three children working at a gold mine in Canada, including a girl wearing Thunberg’s signature braid and stoic expression. Historians believe it was taken around 1898. Thunberg, 16, took the world by storm when she arrived to the UN Climate Action Summit from her native Sweden this year via sailboat — having sworn off airplanes because of...

    It's the Memorial Day image that made Americans online everywhere put their hands to their hearts. A photo that amateur photographer Frank Glick snapped in 2011 of a bald eagle resting on a veteran's gravestone suddenly went viral after the Department of Veterans tweeted it earlier this week. And it's easy to see why. The shot depicts a bald eagle, America's iconic symbol of freedom, perched atop a gravestone, pensively looking out over the expanse. According to an interview with Fox News, Glick snapped the image early one morning at the Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minnesota before attending a...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday she was delivering a simple message to President Trump as she stood and departed a contentious White House meeting the previous day: "At that moment, I was probably saying, 'All roads lead to Putin.'" The picture of Pelosi standing opposite the president as she prepared to leave the Wednesday meeting quickly went viral, after Trump tweeted it out and Pelosi's office later made it the cover photo of her own Twitter account. In the picture, Pelosi is the only woman at the table, the only person standing opposite a seated row of men....

    EXCLUSIVE: A photo obtained by Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight" shows former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter golfing in the Hamptons with Devon Archer, who served on the board of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings with Hunter. Earlier this month, Joe Biden told Fox News in Iowa that he never discussed his son’s foreign business dealings with him. “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden said, pointing the finger at President Trump. “I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You...

    A Texas appeals court has ruled that the University of Houston does not have to pay the photographer of a picture it has been using in online and print promotional materials. Houston photographer Jim Olive says the university removed copyright markings from an image downloaded from his stock library, failed to credit him when it was used and wouldn’t pay when he sent a bill, but the university claims it has sovereign immunity and that it can’t be sued. The case surrounds an aerial image Olive shot from a helicopter hired specifically for making pictures for his library. In an...

    A celebrated book and a major museum exhibition revealed the harrowing tale behind the image of a wounded Marine. Their version was wrong. ============================================================== The fighting in Hue City, Vietnam, was as intense and confusing as anything the Marines there had ever seen. It was mid-February 1968, and American and South Vietnamese forces were desperately trying to counter a surprise onslaught that became known as the Tet offensive. First Battalion, Fifth Marines had breached the city’s historic Citadel. Radio communications were out. From front-line positions, Marines ran back a block or two to give updates to commanding officers and to...

    Spaceflight Insider ^ | 11FEB19 | LAUREL KORNFELD
    A new set of images showing the New Horizons spacecraft departing from Ultima Thule following its New Year’s Day closest approach reveals the Kuiper Belt Object (KBO) is shaped less like a snowman and more like a flat object, with one lobe looking like a pancake and the other like a dented walnut. Initial images returned immediately after the flyby suggested the double-lobed object was composed of two nearly-spherical lobes, one larger than the other. Their apparent nearly round shapes were not due to the lobes being rounded by their own gravity, as both are far too small to attain...

    Tumblr announced this week it will ban content featuring nudity from its platform, starting December 17. The decision was met with lots of backlash from users who view the site as a safe space to explore their identity and sexuality through not safe for work (NSFW) content. Many Tumblr users have said they plan to abandon the platform for alternative blogging websites that allow explicit content, some which can be found below. Tumblr says it's banning "adult content" from its platform in order to make "a better, more positive" place, but the policy change has some users abandoning the site....

    **SNIP** Twitter users proceeded to blast Scarry for the tweet. "Holy s---." wrote New York Post reporter Joe Tacopino. "She's wearing clothes."
