Amar Singh, aged six, from Uttar Pradesh, northern India, is worshipped in his village for his foot-long ‘tail’ which grows on his lower back. It is a result of the birth defect spina bifida, which can result in lower-back growths or, as in Amar’s case, a tuft of hair, which can grow into a tail if left uncut.

Impression of a bird left on a window. The imprints are caused by the bird’s powder down, a special type of down which helps feathers to grow. In some species, the tips of the barbules on powder down feathers disintegrate, forming fine particles of keratin, which appear as a powder, or ‘feather dust’. When a bird strikes a glass pane, the power is shaken lose and adheres to the glass. The effects are simply amazing.
