10 Stunning Photos Snapped At Just The Right Moment
Fly Drinking A Dew Drop
The common housefly beats its wings between 200 and 300 times every second. When they find food, they walk around on it first because the tiny hairs on their legs taste it to make sure its good. While doing this, they’re constantly in motion to make themselves a more difficult target for predators, and their eyes—which can see in 360 degrees at once—stay on the lookout when they finally settle in to eat, because that’s when they’re most vulnerable.
In light of that, this already stunning photograph becomes even more incredible—a high resolution macro shot of two flies slurping their way through a plump dew drop is a one in a million shot.
Seal Dodging A Shark
For a photo of two glorified fish flopping out of the water, this picture is surprisingly gripping. It was taken by Dan Callister off the coast of South Africa on Seal Island, otherwise known as the Ring of Death. At a certain point every year, seal populations on the island bloom, and with them come their most tenacious predator—the great white shark.
As hundreds of baby seals take to the water for the first time, the great whites hunt them in a method unique to this particular occasion—they circle near the surface, then dip down and strike from underneath, moving so fast they launch into the air with, hopefully, a seal in their mouth.
But in this rare instance, the seal juked. The shark is rising out of the water, mouth open for the catch, while the seal gracefully backflips out of harm’s way. You’re almost rooting for the seal, cheering him on in his fight against this mighty onslaught of muscular death.
Yi Peng Festival
Yi Peng is a yearly festival that takes place in northern Thailand that often coincides with the Loi Krathong festival. During Loi Krathong, floating candles and flower baskets are set loose along the riverbanks to please the river spirits. During Yi Peng, however, the floats take a different form—tiny balloons made from rice paper and heated by a candle. The hot air from the candles makes the balloons light enough to float into the air, resulting in thousands upon thousands of bright orange lights filling the night skies. At first as they rise they resemble an army of luminescent jellyfish, and as they float higher they become tiny points of light, a sea of man-made stars.
