8. The swimming pigs of the Bahamas. They live freely on the beaches, and after basking in the sun for hours, they swim in the surf. The pigs are exceptionally friendly, running from under the shade of the almond trees to greet visitors that bring them treats.

One of the first snaps of our planet from space

Taken from a captured German V2 rocket fired into the edge of space from the White Sands testing station in New Mexico by Werner von Braun and the US military rocketry research group, this photo seems a bit grainy compared to the current lush photos from the space station or high res satellites such as PLEIADES and Digital Globe. It remains however a historic piece, and a direct ancestor of so many of the photos we share and comment on here on TES, so I felt it had to be acknowledged as the original source of much rich enjoyment.
