The one that nearly got away

A Dalmatian pelican catches a fish thrown by a fisherman at Kerkini Lake, Greece. During the winter, the fishermen “feed pelicans and help them to survive” says Your Shot photographer Marek Jack opskiet.

Catch of the day

A 65-year-old man made a pretty amazing catch at Wrigley Field recently when a home run hit sent the ball over the railing of the left field bleachers where he was sitting. Mike Pullin snagged the ball with a stretched out, backward, one-legged teeter, which was pretty cheer worthy on its own, but what he did afterward earns him extra sneaky props:

The age-old Wrigley tradition is to throw the ball back if it was hit by the opposing team, but Pullin pulled a sly move: The Rochelle, Illinois veteran smoothly picked up an old ball he had brought to the game, transferred it to his mitt and threw it back onto the field. He kept the real game ball for himself!
