A man (C) dressed in early nineteenth century French army uniform and women dressed as bourgeoises pose for a friend as they participate in the third edition of "Ronda Romantica" (Romantic Ronda) in Ronda, southern Spain, May 16, 2015. Ronda Romantica is a cultural, historical and tourist event during the three days where thousands of people of Ronda and about fifty towns around of "Serrania de Ronda" (Ronda Mountain Ranges), dressed in traditional costumes, recreate the era of the bandits, drovers and romantic travelers in the nineteenth century. They also recreate the war of Spanish Independence which started in 1808 with the invasion by French Napoleonic troops and lasted until 1814, when the French were defeated and expelled from the country.

HIGHBRIDGE, ENGLAND - MAY 18:  A resident fox is seen at Secret World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill near Highbridge on May 18, 2015 in Somerset, England.  Prime Minister David Cameron pledged that the MPs would be given a free vote on scrapping Labour's 10 year-old controversial hunting ban if the Conservatives won the election and some Tory MPs are demanding the vote to be included in this month's Queen Speech. However the threat of the repeal of the act has raised serious concerns with a number of animal welfare charities who are opposed to hunting.  (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images) ***BESTPIX***
