Somehow, I didn’t even know they had been expanding the Panama Canal.  Enjoyed this In Focus gallery of images from the expansion project:

From Telegraph’s photos of the day:

A northern flicker leaving nest cavity. Seven hungry newly-hatched chicks open their beaks as widely as possible as a male woodpecker takes a peek at his young. The Northern Flicker, part of the woodpecker family, chose a dead spruce tree for its nest, which was around 10ft high. Though blind and without their feathers, this descent of woodpeckers will soon grow to look just like their beautiful father - with black bars on their backs and wings and an exceptionally bright yellow under their tail and underwings.

Light streams into Indonesia’s Grubug Cave, captured by photographer Elena Bobrova after descending nearly 200 feet into neighboring Jomblang Cave and traveling through a natural horizontal corridor. Bobrova writes that the vision was “so beautiful that someone called it ‘the light of heaven.”’

The Washington Post has a cool “tour of the solar system” gallery.  On a sort-of-related note, I’m half-way through watching Interstellar and love it so far.
