Flamingos grouped together to form a huge flamingo. This photo taken by Robert B. Haas in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 makes it into this list because of its unlikeliness. The chance of this happening is really really low unless these flamingos are actually intelligent lifeforms. Schools of fish are known for doing the exact same thing, forming a larger body together, to ensure their safety. But do these flamingos do this out of instinct or for a purpose? Or is it simply a coincidence?
- Crystal Cave
This cave located in Iceland is covered with ice… and crystals. The cave is at a constant nine degrees celsius, crucial for the crystals in the cave to form. These crystals don’t look anything like crystals, they don’t have edges, they are smooth, they are clear, and they reflect the blue behind them, being the cave ice. Frost forms on these crystals to make white spots and blocks of textures. There are millions of requirements to form a perfect crystal cave, and here it is. In Iceland.
- Grid Waves
This is a photo of a rare phenomenon called cross sea. It is formed when a wave system continues to proceed after a ninety degrees change in the wind direction. These grid-like waves located along a certain French coast are amongst the most dangerous ocean hazards. Big ships are easily destroyed by their own weight and small boats can be tossed several meters back and forth until out of the area. Although dangerous, the perfect ninety degree angle makes it so that the waves doesn’t interact with eachother making their movements harmonized.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is a giant sinkhole in Florida. Sinkholes form a lot more in Florida than in any other states because of the amount of limestone beneath the ground. Limestones slowly dissolve because of weak natural acid and acid rain. And when the area finally evolves into a huge empty space, the surface collapses. Everything above the surface is swallowed in. A whole house was swallowed in by the sinkhole, killing a man at sleep. Help cannot reach the bottom of the hole so the government decided to fill the sinkhole up with gravel.
A kid in Germany mastered the force and is on her way to become a jedi. Popping the huge bubble at the right time in the right place results in this awesome picture. As the bubble is popped, the blast spreads outwards away from the contact point. In the perfect sunlight angle and brightness enabled us to see every single drop of the bubble water. To the people around them, the bubble popped. To others, a new hope is born (Star Wars reference).
