1 A Western Tarsier
This little guy is in a Malaysian rainforest in Danum Valley, Borneo, and he’s not in shock! His eyes are really large because he’s nocturnal and evidently needs them big to hunt. Tarsiers are unlucky as they lack light-reflecting vision like other night carnivores. But he’s so cute and hard to resist, especially since he only measures 4.5—5.7 inches!
2 Red Stag in the Scottish Highlands
Also known by the natives as ‘Monarch of the Glen’, the red deer stag is a Scottish icon. He’s the largest land mammal in Britain, and roams throughout Scotland. Autumn is the rutting, or mating, season, which can be quite dangerous as the males become extra territorial. Never-the-less, the tourists are drawn to see the spectacle.
3 Cloud Gate Sculpture by Anish Kapoor
The mirrored sculpture, affectionately known as ‘The Bean’, sits in Millennium Park, Chicago, Illinois and is so much fun! People usually surround the sculpture’s reflective surface while ogling back at themselves. Although it’s a perspective mirror, the curves create a distortion similar to a circus mirror. It’s so amazing, actually all of Anish Kapoor’s works are!
4 Sweden’s Red Fox
A red fox in the forest of Elfvik near Lidingö, Sweden spies on us. He’s one of two fox breeds in Sweden, the other is the arctic fox. Both share the same habitat in the northern region of the country where it’s generally colder. The Arctic fox is decreasing in numbers but not endangered, while little “Red” here is doing just fine.
5 Bleak House in Broadstairs, Kent, England
Formerly known as Fort House, the Georgian mansion sits on a cliff overlooking Viking Bay. Is it sounding a lot like the stately home in ‘Wuthering Heights’ by Emily Brontë? We can almost imagine Heathcliff walking across that grassy garden, right? The Fort House was built in 1801, and Charles Dickens spent his Summer holidays writing there.
6 Wales Colwyn Bay Celebrates
The Victorian seaside resort town on the north coast of Wales meets with the Irish Sea. Well known for its sweeping bay and legendary beaches, there are gardens and many other natural beauty spots as well. One is Eirias Park pictured here during a fireworks display. Wow!
7 Western Honey Bee
Wow, that’s some amazing super-fast shutter speed photography! Did you know the Western honey bee and the European honey bee are the same specie? Although they have the word “honey” in their name, they actually don’t bear honey, but nectar. Unfortunately the alarming news is that European honey bee populations have recently faced threats to their survival and so have their North American cousins . . . Oh no!
8 BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir: Neasden Temple
Can you believe this exotic temple actually sits in the middle of London, England? It’s decorated annually for Diwali, which is one of the most important and colorful festivals of the Hindu calendar. During the event the interior is the most breathtaking as you’re transported to India with intricate displays of flowers, traditional jewels and candles. In the evening near the end, the event closes with a spectacular display of fireworks.
9 Prato della Valle in Padova, Italy
Isn’t the largest square in the country simply magical in the Winter? The snow covers a large space, which in the Spring and Summer seasons is a green center island with the canal surrounding it. That sounds like an amazing view too, but Prato della Valle is probably picture-perfect year around!
10 The London Eye, London, England
It’s a must see in London, especially in the Winter season when it’s stunning! Standing 443 feet tall, you can see for miles around. It offers the highest and most romantic view point in the city. If you’ve watched the James Bond 007 films, ‘Skyfall’, ‘Goldeneye’ and ‘Die Another Day’, then you’ve already got a peak inside one of its large ovoidal space-age capsules that can carry 25 people for a ferris wheel ride.
