From the Telegraph’s animal photos of the week:

Patrick's friend Wade Campbell kayaks near a blue whale on April, 12, 2015, in the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka. BLUE WHALES move majestically near the surface of the ocean as an awe-struck diver watches on. The incredible animals were captured on film by Denver-born filmmaker Patrick Dykstra, who fulfilled a long-held dream by swimming with the creatures. The whales are the largest animal to ever inhabit the earth, and outsize even the biggest dinosaurs. Stunning drone footage captures the enormous mammals from above, while in other shots a kayaker paddles just metres from one of the awe-inspiring creatures.

I’d never heard of the Grand Canyon Skywalk until I read a story about it this weekend.  Ummm, wow.

Love this Atlantic gallery of planes years after crashes.

A Douglas C-47 Skytrain that crashed on February 7, 1950, in Yukon, Canada. All 10 people aboard this aircraft survived when it was caught in a downdraft and flew into the side of a mountain. The plane was part of a search mission for another plane that had gone missing the month before.

From Telegraph’s animal photos of the week.  Should be a while before these guys are eating any babies.

You know I’m a sucker for photos of wildfire photos– especially the night ones.  Great gallery from In Focus:

In this Friday, July 17, 2015, photo, the North Fire continues to burn along Baldy Mesa Road late Friday night near Interstate 15 in the Cajon Pass in San Bernardino County, California. The 5.5-square-mile fire destroyed 20 vehicles on the freeway before burning three homes and 44 more vehicles in the community of Baldy Mesa.
