4. Dog Yawn

I like to call this one yawn-ception. Seriously though, what are the chances of this happening and being caught on film?

6. Man Wears Tiny Hat

It’s hard to tell, but it looks like those hat stickers are on the wall outside the train, and the photographer just happened to snap a picture as they were passing it.

10. The Whales Come Out

This one is a personal favorite of mine. The whales look almost ethereal as they lunge out of the water directly beside a small fishing boat.

This pup was just laying on the ground and playing with a stick, but the random flame was in just the right spot to transform him into a fire-breathing beast.

15. Lady Lightning

There are so many layers of amazing in this one, single photo. What are the chances a bolt of lightning would happen to perfectly hit the Statue of Liberty at the exact same second someone was taking a photo?
