The start of the winter bathing season arrives
When you work in a team, nothing is impossible
The glee of bear dancing
When lightning competes with fireworks
Shut your beak!
That's why you should close your mouth when swimming
Two brilliant faces of one sky
A lighthouse in the Faroe Islands falls prey to the surf
A polar bear enjoys sliding down a slope
I'm a mother!
A rare treat
An incredibly belt-like snake
Rush hour in the ocean deep
