Circle of Life | Photograph by Yen Chao
#YourShotPhotographer Yen Chao captures the moment a hyena catches a young wildebeest. Your Shot Senior Producer Matt Adams (@themattadams) commented, "Wow, what a moment and an excellent wildlife image that shows the circle of life and the struggle of being part of the animal kingdom. The expressions on both of the faces here make this an even more interesting image to view."

Today we are featuring @natgeoyourshot photographs selected for @natgeo “Photo of the Day.” To see more, go to

Branka has schizophrenia. She spent 12 years in a psychiatric institution after her legal capacity was taken from her. In 2014 she was allowed to leave and move into an apartment in Osijek, Croatia. She moved in with her partner, who she met in the institution, Drazenko. He spent 13 years in an institution. Drazenko says “The best thing about living in the apartment is that I have the freedom to come and go as I like, I don’t have to report to anyone.” Branka adds “It was not a good place for recovery because you feel like you were in chains. It’s better to be hungry and free than full and chained.” Since leaving the institution neither of them have had an episode that required intervention from a psychiatrist. In this picture they prepare their daily medication.
In four years, 172 out of 200 people have moved from ‘Home for the Insane’ in Osijek, Croatia, into apartments. Staff have trained to serve as assistants in the community. For many beneficiaries it is the first time they’ve experienced true freedom. This facility in Osijek is the only one out of 26 in the country to implement the UN convention to deinstitutionalize.

Video by @bertiegregory. A hungry gentoo penguin chick chases its parent through the colony. These comical pursuits are very common once the chicks are mobile. As the chicks repeatedly beg for food, the adults slowly reach a threshold at which point they suddenly bolt off! It's easy to anthropomorphise and assume the adult is just running away in frustration. However, there are theories that suggest there's more to it. Gentoos often have multiple chicks. It's thought that these chases could ensure that only the fittest chick keeps up with the adult and subsequently gets fed. Shot on Sea Lion Island in the South Atlantic Ocean as part of a new online series for National Geographic. Follow @bertiegregory for more wildlife videos!

SENIOR SUNDAY! @susiesseniordogs has an adoptable dog from DOWN UNDER! And that ear though! Meet Buddy! He's full of energy and overflowing with cuteness! And he's up for adoption in the Melbourne, Australia area. Buddy was surrendered by his former elderly owner who was unable to take care of him anymore. He will do best with a family who is looking for a well-trained dog, but who can also keep up with his youthful spirit. Buddy may be a "senior," but Buddy is anything but retired! He still ADORES playing fetch with his tennis ball and his puppy-like antics will keep you entertained for years to come.
@second.chance.animal.rescue wrote, "Buddy is a lovable, high energy, inquisitive, spoilt cutie. He's enthusiastic and loves playing tug of war, soccer and fetch, and he will play for as long as you can keep up with him! He's toilet trained and easy to get in bed at night. Buddy must be an only dog at home as he's terrified of other dogs and cats. He's also a fussy eater who likes to get his own way, but you can't help but adore him when he gives you his belly and grins! He initially is shy but once he warms up he fully bonds to his family. Due to his shyness, young children are not recommended. Lastly, Buddy has some arthritis in his knees that will need ongoing supplements for." Buddy is up for adoption with Second Chance Animal Rescue located in Epping, Australia - just 30 minutes north of Melbourne.
To adopt Buddy, please email with questions or to submit an application.
