Helping a buddy.

I tell you what, man, I need to get to the Netherlands and I need to get there yesterday. Holland has this shindig every year, and the floats are made of flowers. Unreal. And what about that Viking Festival I told you about in Scotland? Awesome. Here in America we have parades with giant Charlie Brown balloons. That’s lame, man. Anyway, check it out:

For some reason I’m betting on the Mantis here.

Yikes.

I have no idea what’s going on here, but there’s no way this is a good idea. No way. After all, that’s a, you know, bear. It could eat that kid in a nanosecond. Kids and bears? Bad combination, man.

Hey, wait up! Whew. Made it. I’ve also included a bonus gif below.

W-e-e-e-e-e-e!!!

Yep. Iceland again. I have to make a road trip soon. Just spectacular.

Cool.

Yep. hat’s a happy dog, man.

Two photos for twice the adorableness. Click on photo and say “Awwwww”.

Beautiful.

The Dukha people of Mongolia have been living the same tribal lifestyle in the same region for centuries. Perhaps the most beautiful aspect of these ancient people of the present is their connection with animals, especially reindeer. That’s cool, man.

Love this one. Wait. That’s a calf, right? Not a goat?

Majestic.

Check out that Archerfish, man. Archerfish are known for their habit of preying on insects and other small animals by shooting them down with water droplets from their specialized mouths. Archerfish are remarkably accurate in their shooting. Adult fish almost always hit the target on the first shot, and they can do it from a distance of up to 9-feet. That’s diabolical, man. Anyhoo, Archerfish.

Mesmerizing.

This photo was taken in Santa Maddalena, Dolomiten, Italy. Just a beautiful photo. Click to enter the amazingness. Oh, and that’s a church.

Stunningly beautiful.

There’s something about this one I really like.

Incredible indeed.

Helluva view. Here’s astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson looking down at Earth from the best vantage point ever,

Cool.

Big Viking guy here. My former students will attest to that. Love everything about them. Well, the raping and pillaging wasn’t cool, but you know what I mean. Anyhoo, there’s a Viking Festival in Scotland and it looks amazing. On a related note, I have a new item on my bucket list. Road Trip, anyone?
