This sea lion pup adopted a cunning disguise by rolling in the sand, which stuck to its wet body. Photographer Francisco Laso snapped the creature as it blended against a rock before fleeing back into the sea to wash it off.

An ant appears to be trying to roll a perfectly spherical droplet of water back to its nest. Photographer Rakesh Rocky from Warangal, India, came across the plucky insects with a ball. But although the ball may have looked like a water drop, it was actually a water-absorbing polymer - or water gel - a biodegradable, non-toxic absorbent crystal alternative soil for potting plants. It can absorb approximately 400 times its weight in water.

A herd of zebras drink at a waterhole in Etosha National Park, Namibia.  Ann said: It was particularly amazing to see so many zebras there in the national park. Because of heavy rainfall, the herd was twice the size we anticipated - we had never seen quite so many before. Steve added: We really like photographing zebras because we can take colour out of the equation and think about the animals as if they are patterns.Picture: Ann & Steve Toon/Solent News & Photo Agency
