“i think selfies themselves are pretty boring, so i like to spice them up a bit,” says 14-year-old tamara burri (@tamaraburri_ ). “i express myself through my pictures and how i edit them. it’s really fun to play with makeup and create something with your face, even though you have to wash it off at the end of the day.” photo illustration by @tamaraburri_

In this case, playing with this “food” is totally allowed. it’s a creation from og slimes (@slime_og ). 🍌🍦🍒 “making dessert slime has connected us with people through their food and culture, whether it be our “fresas con crema” slime inspired by the popular mexican dessert or “sticky rice and mango” inspired by traditional thai cuisine,” says christine ly, who runs og slimes with her sister donna and their friend danny.
today on our story, og slimes puts the cherry on top of a fake banana split, and then squishes it for our asmr delight.

Without a camera trap, taking this photo would’ve been impossible. 🐾📸 “i could spend the rest of my life and never get close enough to the florida panther to make photographs with a wide-angle lens,” says conservation photographer carlton ward jr. (@carltonward ), who got this shot using a camera trap with an invisible tripwire. “a camera trap is essentially a studio waiting in the woods,” carlton says. “when an animal crosses the beam it takes its own picture.” like a selfie. 😻
today on our story, carlton shares more “impossible” shots from the florida wildlife corridor.
