Drone Disguised as Hummingbird Captures Incredible Footage of Monarch Butterfly Swarm

Photographing the Dead: "Post Mortem" (NSFW/Graphic)

While searching for something to inspire, educate or intrigue our readers, I came across a photobook review that damn near stopped my heart.

The Short Story of the Iconic Photo 'The Falling Man'

15 years after the tragic day, Time Magazine published a video from their "Behind the Photo" series about "The Falling Man,” captured by well-known Associated Press Photographer Richard Drew.
