They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and sometimes that story is one-of-a-kind. Here are some incredible sights that have been caught on camera which will never be replicated.
Either the water just randomly parted to reveal an aquatic stalker, or this guy has water-bending powers. Either way, he's got the best view in the house for watching his friend on a surfboard.
The moment the officiator said "You may kiss the bride," one of the bridesmaids passed out. Best wedding photo ever.
Parents of the Year
In years to come, this kid is going to see this photo and suddenly realize where that bump on her head came from. Great job, mom and dad.
This might look like a cross between "Star Wars" and "Attack on Titan," but it's actually a photo of a Darth Vader hot air balloon taking off. If Daddy Skywalker is this big, just imagine how large his TIE Fighter must be!
Bird to the Face
This poor woman seems to prove popular with the pigeons. So popular, in fact, that one seems to have flown in to give her a kiss.
Birthday Party Disaster
You only get one shot at a first birthday party. Charlie's party took a sudden turn when mommy accidentally knocked the cake over.
It's hard to find ways to make your wedding photos unique. Having a party crasher drop from the sky into your infinity pool certainly makes for an unforgettable picture.
"Were you looking for the bug spray? Too bad! The tables have turned, now get out of my house!"
Pro tip: don't point at ducks. Let this serve as a warning.
Into the River
In this wedding photo, the groom had the genius idea of picking up his bride for a photo. Next to a river. What happened next should have been obvious.
The Ultimate Candle
This amazing photo was taken mere miliseconds before this woman (and everyone else in the room) realized that her hair was on fire. Birthdays are a fire hazard.
Get a Grip
Going down! This baby owl needs more practice holding onto a branch.
Cheetahs Never Prosper
One way or the other, nobody involved will ever forget the time this guy became a cheetah's new best friend.
This awesome photo of an airshow reveals just how impressive it can be to watch talented stunt pilots. What looks like motion blur is in fact four airplanes flying in formation.
The photographer went to take a photo of a rainbow, and unexpectedly managed to catch a bolt of lightning at the same time. There may be gold at the end of the rainbow, but there's apparently raw electricity at the top.
What's Up, Doc?
Yes, this is a photo of a piano that has been dropped on a car. Presumably Bugs Bunny was driving, and the Road Runner was in the passenger seat.
This photo raises a lot of questions. How did this guy manage to be in this place, facing in that direction? Where did he jump from? Does he still have all his teeth?
These dogs will forever regret the time they picked a fight with a young cow. Getting a bovine bellyflop to the face is never going to end well.
Don't Touch That!
This is clearly a learning experience for all. The parents have learned not to let their child get too close to an open flame, and the kid has learned to never ever trust grown-ups.
This man is very pleased with his ice cream. It's a shame it's about to disappear into the mouth of an opportunistic seagull.
This wedding photo was taken in the split second the photographer fell over, leading to a sea of concerned faces. The groomsman on the left looks like he's going to cry, while the bridesmaids in the back look like they're enjoying this accident a little too much.
Commanding the Storm
When a giant statue of Jesus gets struck by lightning, is that a sign of the end of the world? Or is that just the result of building something big on the top of a mountain to create a lightning rod?
This guy was trying to take a perfectly ordinary selfie, until a parrot decided to photobomb the picture. The result is incredible.
This rollercoaster photo caught the exact moment that a guy's keys fell out of his pocket. His friend actually managed to catch them, making for a truly one-of-a-kind park souvenir picture.
These two photographers were taking pictures of a volcano eruption when it started raining. The resulting photo is just stunning.
Two Bullets Shot Each Other
If you ever wondered if a bullet could shoot another bullet, let this photo be your answer! This artifact was found in the aftermath of the Battle of Gallipoli in 1915.
This is a rare sighting of the secret handshake between three bro-amigos, seen at the rarest moment of a foul ball catching, which is also the only time these three dudes have ever felt real joy.
A Friendly Meeting
With the absolute amount of surprise that this small child is in, it might be more helpful for her parents if that bucket she was sitting on wasn't upside down... just saying.
Most people are lucky to catch a baseball at a game, so it's all the more surprising when an eagle swoops down to land on a member of the crowd. But, it's obvious that the creature most shocked by this event is the eagle himself.
Breakfast of Chumps
What came first, the chicken or the egg-asperation? You can just tell that the rest of your day won't go "over easy" if you start it off with some frowny eggs and limp toast.
Believe it or not, this once in a lifetime shot of an elephant's spray perfectly creating another elephant's face in the air for these lucky onlookers is stunning.
60 Drops of Water on a Penny
Apparently it takes 61 drops of water to break the surface tension on a penny. If you've got the time to recreate this experiment while you're quarantining, you can see its true majesty for yourself.
Did Somebody Say Fetch?!
Right after this photo was taken, this excited dog unhinged its jaw like a snake and swallowed the football whole. It was an amazing sight, but his vet wasn't too happy about it.
I Can’t See Without My Glasses
This guy definitely should've worn his contacts for his trek up the mountainside. But, this probably isn't the first time he's lost a pair of specs on a trip, because his face is saying, "not again."
Fries to Share
The two birds behind this pigeon are totally judging his confiscation skills. This pigeon really tried to go for the jackpot, but just ended up with nothing in his double jeopardy moment.
Lightning Hit the Golf Course
This is how God golfs. He gets a hole in one every time. I'd pay extra to have lightning strike the hole every time I was on par. It would totally scare my golf buddies!
Don’t Look Up Now
Hats off to this seagull for pulling off a great tacky hat heist from this jolly beachgoer. If there's an embroidered fish design on the hat, is that bird actually an art collector?
Holy smokes! A sports ghost! This is the exact moment that Orbitus Ballerson, self help guru and part-time football player found the exact meditational, vibrational vortex that causes invisibility. Ok, he just got his helmet knocked off, but how creepy!
Walking on Water
Hey, guy at the left, don't throw your nice clean Husky puppy in dirty, oil slicked, dock side ocean water just so you can claim he walks on water. No one believes you. That dog looks freaked out dancing through the air! I'm calling the coast guard, you creep.
Ladybug After Rain
Expensive exotic fruit or water droplet covered ladybug? Looks like candy... but it's actually a lady bug covered in hundreds of micro water droplets. Why does this look so tasty to me?
Evil Does a Good Deed
When you are evil, it's nice to stop and give a little to a person in need, just to remind everyone else around you of how dope the gull wings on your Lambo are!
Neighborhood Light Show
Newsflash: Aliens wear plaid. Not earthy plaid, but ultra alien plaid which is so powerful that it appears as pure light and can penetrate your clean, modern home's white on white kitchen making everyone feel groovy.
You know a brother is freaking out inside thinking, "My crustaceans are smaller!" Men always wonder if they have the biggest lobster and when you see someone in public that clearly has bigger ones than you, it hurts.
I hate looking for parking, so if this was the only spot left and I was fifteen minutes late for an appointment, I'd totally park here. The tree is now a shield for other disasters like rampaging kaiju or maurading dudes in mech suits.
Four Matching Strangers
Times are so tough, groups of furloughed referees are just sitting by the side of the road waiting for a game to call. Sometimes when they've been waiting all day with no job offers, they will call fouls on pedestrians for jaywalking. Someone help them!
Holding Up the Sky
Giant woman terrorizes Delta flight! Tall woman Anita Skyscraper says she got a wild hair and decided to tickle a plane. No one was hurt but the FAA says she should keep her huge hands to herself from now on.
What Happens When You Stay in the Bath Too Long
Skin fractals. Now you'll know what a Shar Pei dog's life is like. Everyone loves a prune hand! Falling asleep in the bath also creates a great, temporary Halloween costume: Super Prune man!
Just a day in the life. Future astronaut Belinda Hurls recalls the day she told her mom, "You tricked me, woman! You said this was It's a small world!" Before being catapulted onto the Gutwrencher's first epic drop zone.
Sometimes a great friendship can spring up around sharing a meal. A polite shark thanks a photographer with a high five for tying a fresh goat leg bait to a buoy. Classy move Jimmy! You know how to impress the sharks.
The Moment Before Disaster
This beer garden disaster can be described with a simple poem. "My father went to the bar, to get us a couple of drinks, he dropped every one, saying sorry my son, I guess Dad's more drunk than he thinks."
When the Sky Smiles Back at You
There is always something good available to you, and even when life is at its most difficult, good still persists. Look up for a moment, all of nature is smiling at you and inviting you to be glad. Smile, and live happier, which might just cause you to live longer.
When it turns out that your neighbor's pool is really a muddy sinkhole, you're not gonna have a good time. The next couple seconds are gonna be a mess. This woman was doing the electric slide at her neighbor's kid's 7th birthday party and got too close to the "pool." In fact, it's not a pool Karina! It's a dangerous muddy sinkhole. Pools have walkways, even ponds have rocks, trees and a sort of bank around them.
Photobombed by a Sloth
Just before the carnage began... This sloth had eaten 15 people and was just about to spring onto these tourists and deal some pretty heavy damage before a ranger showed up with a tranquilizer dart. Sloths are vicious and have been known to decimate a full sized cow in 15 minutes. They were lucky.
The Rare Two-Headed Swan
What's cooler than a swan? A fractal swan! This is the first swan in history to be able to pick its own nose. Having a smaller twin growing out the top of your head can get pretty annoying though, he can peck out your eyes and heckle you.
Tree After a Lightning Storm
Tree opens up revealing delicious crispy bacon interior. The smell was intoxicating and the farmer who grew tree was so happy that he made breakfast for all his neighbors!
Construction Worker Strike
Imagine all the sunburned heads! Construction workers walk out and leave their hats in the cold square. I hope they wrote their names in those otherwise the re-hatting process is gonna get super ugly.
