I had no idea there was a world’s best “water photographer” but thanks to this gallery, now I can see why:

Recent National Geographic photo of the day (as if this photo isn’t awesome enough, the title is just perfect):

Fearless Symmetry

It’s a rare and privileged experience to witness the interaction of tiger cubs in the wild, says Souvik Kundu, a member of our Your Shot photo community. After learning that a tigress had given birth to cubs in India’s Ranthambore Tiger Reserve, Kundu visited the sanctuary a number of times to photograph the family. On this day his group was treated to an “unforgettable display of tender bonding,” with “the cubs engaged in several bouts of play-fighting under the watchful eyes of the mother.”

I really want to go to a drag race sometime.  Seriously.  Though I would not want to see anything as dramatic as this (from the Telegraph’s week in pictures):

Nothing like a good “super tide.”  From a cool Telegraph gallery of the phenomenon:

The supertide submerges Mont Saint-Michel's narrow causeway, cutting off the historic commune

A “supertide” is expected to affect coastlines around the North Sea, the English Channel and to a lesser extent in the Mediterranean. The world-famous Mont Saint-Michel on France’s northern coast was cut off by an especially big tide, with a difference between high and low tide of 47.6 ft (14.15 metres)

Bushfire Season

Photograph by Pierre Destribats, National Geographic Your Shot

Lightning on a stormy evening near Port Hedland, Western Australia, ignites bushfires that send up an orange glow. A common threat to safety in the province during summer months, bushfires can start without warning and move quickly through vast areas.
