And Now, Cute Animals

Sometimes I just need to take a break and look at beautiful things. That often means spending time scrolling around Tom and Lorenzo and Go Fug Yourself to look at pretty people in pretty clothes.

But The Big Picture at always goes one better — they curate themed collections of stunning photos from around the globe. Today: 50 Best Photos From The Natural World. These were two of my favorites. You are heartily encouraged to take a few minutes to enjoy all of them. If you’re so inclined, you can find Big Picture on Twitter and Facebook.

    Thanks for the link to The Big Picture. My kids, the hubby and I really enjoyed the nature photographs and the ones on the lunar eclipse. Amazing technology matched with photographic eyes makes for some awesome viewing for us mortals:-)
