30 Unedited Photos To Remind You That Life Is Stranger Than Fiction.
#6. There's no place on earth like the Wave in North Coyote Buttes, Arizona.
If Coyote Buttes isn't on your bucket list yet then you should look at more photos of the area. Visitors have commented that it's not just a sight to be seen, it's an experience to be had. Unfortunately, most of us will never see this place in real life.
These rock formations are sacred and only 20 people are allowed in there per day. This keeps the area pristine. Permits are issued by mail lottery or through a raffle drawing at the visitor's center. If you're lucky enough to be chosen, bring a good camera and lots of water for the hike there.
#7. One of those rare moments.
Robert Haas was in his helicopter snapping photos of flamingos in Yucitan, Mexico when they began to form a giant version of themselves. Fortunately, he captured one final shot before the birds began to fly away.
Haas described his experience saying, "It's the holy grail in photography when you capture an image you've never seen before and may never see again.The reaction to this photo has been remarkable. Some people have actually said that the image is divine intervention and proof that there is a God.It really was a very spiritual moment."

#8. A lizard strumming his leaf guitar.
Photographer Aditya Permana spent an hour watching forest dragon lizards in Yogyakarta, Indonesia before she snapped this image. She said the lizard seemed comfortable resting on his back with a leaf clutched between it's feet.
He's probably playing Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven and impressing all the female lizards. Proof that even reptiles want to be rock stars.
#9. A mobula rays convention on the coast of Baja.
Fishermen ran into a school of mobula rays while trying to unhook sharks from their long lines in Baja, Mexico. The photo was captured by Eduardo Lopez Negrete while freediving at 60 feet.
#10. It looks like Photoshop, right?
