Supersize family in China, 500 relatives turned up for their photo session, requiring a drone to fly back from a distance in a bid to get the full clan in the frame.
Apparently it took more two years for the Ren family to coordinate the impressive stunt, which took place close to their ancestral town in the Zhejiang province.
The photos taken in front of a backdrop of basalt formations where Ren’s original family village founded.
The ancestors seen snaking down the hillside with some passers-by even snapping shots of the unusual family get-together.
The 500 living members of the Ren dynasty part of the 25th to 31st generations of the family.
Many of them are scattered across the country with some residing in Beijing, Shanghai, Xinjiang, and even across the strait in Taiwan.
The relatives brought together by a project to update their sprawling family tree.

It took more than 30 minutes for them to get into position in front of the drone camera.
Commenting on the reunion, Ren Tuanjie – one of the main organisers of the event – told china.org:
‘It took us two and a half years to complete the new family tree.
During Spring Festival, we like to bring all the family members together so as to let our ancestors know where they are.’
In China the Spring Festival is an annual event which often brings family members together.
Many opt to have photographs taken during this time to mark the occasion.
The Ren’s very busy photo branded ‘amazing’ by internet users after hitting the web.
Ren added: ‘China is moving towards modernity, but Chinese people’s roots in their native land never disappear.
