Froggy grasp

Mar 10, 2011 - Orlando, Florida, U.S. - From a frog balancing precariously on a cocktail to an ambitious amphibian trying its hand at the violin, they are undoubtedly portraits with a difference. But this is no joke, in search of the perfect shot photographer Bob Garas will often spend hours working with his unusual subjects. Bored of the humans and more obvious pets, the 53-year-old has turned his talents to frogs but the photographer, based in Orlando Florida, admits the the task takes a great deal of patience.

Dog days of winter

A boy plays with his dog in a snow-covered park in Ankara on March 9, 2011. Snow storm and blizzard caused inter-city motorways and roads at the countryside in parts of Turkey to shut down as two days of uninterrupted snowfall in capital Ankara plunged the city's traffic into chaos. Major routes were cluttered with stuck vehicles on Tuesday evening, forcing car drivers and passengers of public transport to walk to their homes, Anatolian News Agency said.

Free at last

A rehabilitation grey-headed Flying fox returns to the wild after being released by wildlife carers at a bat colony in western Sydney, Australia, Sunday, March 13, 2011.
