In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Rio 2016, Xavi Bou, Chrome IG Story and Perseid Meteor Shower images.

  • Alan Taylor presents 40 more photos from Days 4 through 6 of Rio 2016. Among them are images from cycling, archery, volleyball, weightlifting, diving, sailing, judo and more.
  • In A 150-Year-Old Viz Trick Reveals The Beauty Of Airborne Birds, John Brownlee shows how Spanish photographer Xavi Bou uses Photoshop to composite hundreds of images of migrating birds to show the pattern of their flight.
  • Chrome IG Story is a Google Chrome browser extension that "injects your friend's Instagram Stories above your feed on the desktop Web site just like it appears in the Instagram mobile app."
  • If you missed it last night, NASA has published Perseid Meteor Shower 2016 from West Virginia, a 30-second exposure by Bill Ingalls. And here's a few more from NASA Flickr feed.

We've also updated our Calendar yesterday and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
