Five nature photos to blow your mind


About Justin

Sharing my thoughts and opinions with you


Check out some of the Internet's best wildlife photos of the week. Do you have your own to share? You can do that, too!

We live in a weird, crazy and astonishing world, one that is worth looking after.

The internet is filled with some of the coolest photos and videos of our world -- and the creatures who live here with us.

With this in mind, here are my top five wildlife photos from the internet this past week.

1.) A flying peacock

This image captures the somewhat rare spectacle of a beautiful peacock taking flight. Before seeing this photo, I had no idea that peacocks could even fly!

2.) The open mouth of a lemon shark

The lemon shark can grow up to 3.4 metres long and often feed at night by emitting electro-receptors to find their main prey, fish. This may look terrifying, but lemon sharks are not considered a threat to humans.

3.) A flying gurnard fish

This flying gurnard fish in New Zealand is spectacular. They are traditionally bottom-dwelling fish in tropical waters. Additionally, they range in colour with this being one of the more beautiful and colourful of the species.

4.) An algae-covered tide pool

This little pool in Nova Scotia, Canada, has been covered by algae -- with the green highlights looking so cool against the dark water.

5.) Golden rocket frog

I have never seen a golden rocket frog, or Anomaloglossus beebei, before. The gold colour of it is absolutely stunning.
