Catch me if you can: A pitch invasion by a sharp-toothed marten has created havoc at a football match in Switzerland.
The weasel-like creature dashed onto the field a few minutes into the topflight match between Thun and FC Zurich on Sunday and evaded efforts by players and match officials to catch it.
Zurich defender Loris Benito dived and grabbed the marten — receiving a bitten finger for his troubles. Click through for video. (Photo: Marcel Bieri/Keystone/The Associated Press)

Arnensee Lake, Switzerland
The waters of Arnensee in Switzerland are so clear they cause boats such as the one in the picture to appear as they are hovering in the air.
The lake is located in Canton of Berne in Switzerland, and can be easily reached with a little planning. Although that first picture has made the lake relatively known, it’s still usually a quiet, tourist-free place.
Lake Geneva gets like this sometimes, too, though mostly in winter.
