8. “Pond of a Thousand Shades”, photographer - Fenqiang Liu, USA

The photographer took this photo in southeast Georgia, USA, as summer met winter and the sunlight gave nature different shades. It's like an open-air art exhibition where every corner is a masterpiece.

The photo shows a small pond formed as a result of a temporary accumulation of melted snow. Usually the area is overgrown with trees, but for some time this “ghost forest” appeared on the surface of the water.

This beauty was photographed at Yedang Lake in Yesan County, South Korea.

16. “Keeper of the magic of the forest”, photographer - Marcello Galleano, Italy

A curious lemur in the heart of a Madagascan forest holds vanilla leaves in its paws, a fragrant treasure hidden among the branches. Photogenic comrade!

17. “Mimicry”, photographer - Sayaka Ichinoseki, Japan

The ragbill seahorse is endemic to Australia and is listed as a threatened species. They have always been difficult to find due to the fact that they mimic algae, although they can reach up to 40 cm in size. They are one of the most beautiful and skillfully mimicking creatures in the world.
