We can’t imagine there have been many times that a shot like this has been captured. A large group of giant whales have gathered all together and are all surfacing at the same time in very tight formation. You can bet that under the surface they are bumping and jostling.
We don’t know if this happens a lot, but it’s sure the first time we’ve seen it. If we had to guess, we’d say that this is some sort of feeding strategy. The whales probably corralled a huge school of prey into a tight area and then converges to gobble them all up. Any other theories?
A Landing Accident
In this picture, we see the aftermath of a catastrophic accident on a runway. Clearly, something went seriously wrong during the landing, and the plane slid down the embankment. We sure hope nobody was seriously hurt. You know what they say - the chances of a flight crashing are the highest just before takeoff or landing.
How absolutely terrifying! Since the weather seems quite clear, we're going out on a limb and saying that there was a problem with the landing gear. Does anyone know if a plane can be brought back into service after an accident like this?
Talk About a Nightmare
Suspend a line of hammocks high above a canyon and rent them out to sleepy daredevils? Sure, why not? Not for me, though. You couldn’t pay me enough in this lifetime or the next! Apparently, this is like a waystation and all these people are on their way higher and higher.
One question: why? Two: how is this fun for anyone? We guess adrenaline junkies are a real thing. Crazy thrill seekers who can’t function unless they’re on the edge both literally and metaphorically. Well, more power to them. They are an endless source of inspiration and entertainment, even if we have no desire personally to emulate them.
Swimming with the Sharks
Nope. Next. This is not the job or hobby for us. As much as we love operating drones, give us people, places, and things to click on dry land, any day. Presumably, at least these are not particularly vicious sharks. At least, not to humans. But still. You can call us cowards.
It’s ok, we're not afraid of that tag. Still, we're glad someone is brave enough to swim in the middle of a school of giant carnivorous sharks. Otherwise, we would be robbed of this amazing photo. So, thank you Mr. Scuba Man, and thank you, Mr. Drone Operator!
Swimming with the Whale Sharks
This high overhead shot shows people out for a swim alongside several gigantic whale sharks. These swimmers are pretty adventurous, getting in the water together with gigantic mammals. Good for them. For what it’s worth, even though whale sharks are sharks, and indeed the biggest fish in the world, they are gentle plankton eaters.
So, it’s not like swimming with great whites. More like swimming with gentle giants. But they’re massive and intimidating nonetheless. The story of Jonah and the whale comes to mind, and although the chances of that happening are slim, who’s to say what can happen? Best to keep a safe distance.
