A drone-mounted camera has captured breathtaking images of a glacier in Iceland. Italian photographer Stefano Tiozzo remotely shot a series of unique aerial images of the Vatnajökull glacier in February. It is the largest ice cap in Europe by volume and has a large core measuring almost a kilometer (0.6 mile) in thickness. The glacier also displays several ‘tongues’ — parts where the ice stretches from the core into the Icelandic tundra. Tiozzo, who lives in Moscow, said: “Seeing the glacier from above gives you an idea of its sheer size. This was the second year in a row that I visited Vatnajökull, which is receding fast due to rising temperatures. This year I visited some of the same spots, and it was very clear that the ice had been consumed, leaving big gaps behind.” (Caters News)

These mind-bending masterpieces are created by an artist with a unique talent for combining different jigsaw puzzles into bizarre mash-ups. Whether it be piglets with the eyes of frogs, cows blended with construction vehicles or toy bears mixed with beer cans, no combination is off-limits for the creative eye of jigsaw fanatic Tim Klein. Klein, from Vancouver, Wash., came up with the concept for his one-of-a-kind works after discovering that many mass-produced 500-piece jigsaw puzzles have the same cut pattern, allowing their subjects to be merged in bizarre ways. He said: "For any pair of 500-piece puzzles with the same cut pattern, there are literally trillions of possible ways to intermingle their pieces, so the possibilities are endless." (Caters News)
