Welcome to beautiful northern Kyrgyzstan, in central Asia! This stunning photo shows a yurt frame sitting in the snow with some epic mountains in the background. A yurt is a circular structure that is covered with animal skins or felt used by nomadic people. Nomadic people tend to move around instead of settling in one place. We think it looks a bit like a big birdcage!

Check out this curious little monkey! Photographer Ian Wade spent four days watching Barbary Macaques at The Rock of Gibraltar. He loved taking pictures of the monkeys - and it's easy to see why! The cutie in this photo spotted its reflection in the photographer's camera lens and reached out to touch it!

American gymnast and Olympic champion Simone Biles was photographed in all her glory at the Superstars of Gymnastics event in London. The gold medallist was performing on the beam.

This shot is pretty spooooooky! It was taken in Indonesia and features a mesmerising Mimic Octopus. They get their name because of their clever ability to copy the behaviour of other sea animals like jellyfish and flatfish which helps to keep them safe.

This breathtaking shot was taken in the Dolomites, a mountain range the northwest of Italy. The Dolomites has 18 mountain peaks in total. Just look at that sky!
