As Britain is lashed by rain and floods, a Russian photographer has captured another side of water in these stunning images of droplets.

They were created around Moscow by photographer Andrew Osokin.

The 50-year-old from Moscow uses macro photography to capture the delicate balance of the liquid forming globes thanks to surface tension.

Rainwater Collecting Installation Dazzles Like an Outdoor Chandelier

Situated in a clearing within an Italian forest, John Grade’s latest installation, Reservoir, appears like a chandelier glistening among the pine trees.

Scientists in Brazil have discovered the first new river dolphin species since the end of World War One.

Named after the Araguaia river where it was found, the species is only the fifth known of its kind in the world.

Writing in the journal Plos One, the researchers say it separated from other South American river species more than two million years ago.

There are believed to be about 1,000 of the creatures living in the Araguaia river basin.

River dolphins are among the world’s rarest creatures.
