A feisty fish left a hungry eagle in a real flap - after almost drowning the giant bird while putting up a fight in true David vs Goliath style. The eagle swooped down, talons outstretched to calmly pluck the fish out of the water but the big fish had other ideas and tried to fight back. The battle was captured by keen photographer Chad Wright during a trip this year to Mabalingwe Nature Reserve in Limpopo Province, South Africa.

Guo, a farmer in his 50s, drives his self-made scale replica of a Lamborghini in a street in Zhengzhou, central China's Henan province. Guo spent 6 months and about 5,000 yuan (492) to make the 6ft 6in long (2 metres), 3ft 2in wide (1 metre) 'Lamborghini' as a toy for his grandson. The replica is mainly made of scrapped metals and parts from electric bicycles. It bears five sets of batteries and can travel as far as 37 miles when fully charged.
