What an amazing action shot of a bald eagle hunting for a fish meal! Did you know that many eagles lay two eggs, but the older, larger chick frequently kills its younger sibling once it has hatched…

This is the amazingly beautiful fuchsia flower! What a colourful photo! Did you know that this flower was originally named after a German botanist Leonard Fuchs, whose name is pronounced ‘Fooks’. So we actually should be pronouncing fuchsia as ‘fooksia’, not “few-sha”.

I love the symmetry and colour in this breathtaking photo found on Flickr. This beautiful road is at a tulip farm in Woodburn, Oregon called the Wooden Shoe. Looking at this photographer’s other photos at the tulip farm is also amazing, but this one really caught my eye. LUV IT! Now I want to go visit Woodburn for this annual tulip festival…

I enjoy photos where photographers use toy figures combined with real life things set in unique ways, especially when it is done well, like in this “May the Fourth be with you” commemoration. Because I am a geek like that… What is “May the Fourth”? Why, it’s Star Wars Day, of course! An unofficial holiday in May created by fans to honour the Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas. Like the millions of worldwide fans, I can hardly wait for Dec-2015!!

Woah… This photo is just beautiful! Makes you want to visit this strange exotic land of Myanmar (aka Burma). Bagan, Myanmar is one of the main tourist hotspots. More than 10,000 Buddhist temples were built in Bagan between the 11th and 13th centuries. Many were damaged from earthquakes and erosion, but more than 2200 remain today. The balloon rides will cost you US$300 per person. But for the beautiful views & photo op, I would love to visit these ancient structures someday…

Flickr… so awesome. So many amazing photos… I just went through wangjianshe‘s photo collection of 2000+ photos and found some breathtaking shots to share with you!  This beautiful rural area is in southern China called the Guizhou Province. I would love to visit this place for not only photography but also for their ethnic food – their cuisine is a spicy Szechuan!

Wow, this photo of icebergs looks like CG, but it really is a photo! Thanks to Kristinn R. for taking this and looks like he spends a lot of time photo-editing each of his amazing photo-work.
