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.

Love this from National Geographic photographer Cory Richards’ instagram feed. Lighting is everything.
On assignment for @natgeo with @intotheokavango A pied kingfisher waits intently above the water of the Okavango Delta, looking for small fish to feed on. Kingfishers are a staple in the Delta and there are roughly 90 species worldwide. Every piece of the Okavango ecosystem is intricately tied together…water being the rope. The water that floods the delta every year flows from the Angolan highlands where we started our journey 3 months ago. The team of @intotheokavango has finally made it to the flood plain after seemingly endless effort. Follow @jameskydd @markstonephoto and @intotheokavango for more images from the journey. @natgeocreative @eddiebauer @thephotosociety #okavango15

Love the Economist’s photo of the day on Instagram:
A coast guard vessel approaches a dinghy carrying migrants, a few miles from the island of Kos, Greece on August 11th 2015. Authorities on Kos are struggling to contain increasing numbers of people arriving clandestinely on rubber dinghies from the nearby Turkish shore.
