Vladimir Putin, man of action  SEP 13 2011

Watch as Vladimir Putin rides a horse, drives a race car, tags a tiger, does judo, goes on archeological dives, looks at leopards, stands on a boat, arm wrestles, attempts to bend a frying pan, rides a snowmobile, flies a plane, hugs a dog, rides a motorcycle, looks at a bear, swims the butterfly, signs autographs, shoots a whale with a crossbow, plays the piano, feeds a moose, talks with a biker gang, steers a boat, walks through brush with a gun, sits in a tank, blacksmiths, plays hockey, hugs a horse, dives almost a mile in a submersible, and adjusts sunglasses.

He has made many more important posts on In Focus and Big Picture over the years, but Alan Taylor has really outdone himself with this one...each photo is somehow more wonderfully unlikely than the previous one. See also Kim Jong-il Looking at Things.
