    Cowan’s Butterflies and Caiman received a Special Commendation in the Ecology and Environmental Science Category of the 2016 Royal Society Publishing Photography Competition due to the unique organization of the butterflies. Look closely—you’ll see that three species of butterflies are present and each species clings to its own kind.

    Rocks on the lake Baikal in Russia get heated from the sunlight every now and then and melt the ice beneath. After the sun is gone, the ice turns solid again thus creating a small stand for the rock above. It is called the Baikal Dzen.
