SNAP CHART; INSTAGRAM WINNERS TOP 20 PICTURES OF THE FIRST SIX MONTHS OF THE YEAR News agency Reuters' followers deliver a feast for the eyes as they choose their favourite photographs.

EVERYONE is a photographer these days, thanks to smartphones, but it's still a pleasure to see the results of professional snappers at work.

News agency Reuters asked their 250,000 followers on Instagram to choose their favourite picture of the first six months of this year - and these 20 won the most votes.

It was a big news story - the legalising of gay marriage in the US - that topped the chart. But there are also shots aplenty of cute animals and marvellous displays of nature.
