The combination of the moon and the lava flowing out of it makes for a stunning picture, but who is that guy on the right and why is he taller than the trees?

It's actually a bioluminescent ghost mushroom from Australia but it could certainly pass for a celestial organ. We wouldn't recommend eating this mushroom, though, unless you want to see ghosts.

Kudos to the artist for having the vision to see an otherwise mundane pipe as a Simpson solo just waiting to break out. The best graffiti artists incorporate existing elements into their designs.

The air is almost pink in this picture and there's definitely a rosy tinge to the grass as well.

A runoff of sand and silt deposits creates this spectacular illusion, which some say resembles a "portal to Atlantis." The myriad blues in the water are cool and refreshing.

The fire in the sky, the soft, shrouding mist and the mountains rising in the background. It looks like a scene from a monster movie, but it's actually a picture of Tuscany.

This Rainbow Wrasse caught off Christmas Island is a definitely a showstopper. It looks way too good to eat, and you just know it's chock-full of multi-colored candy.

It's from a Bronze Wing Pionus parrot and, technically, it's not a feather but a plumule. It's on a finger but almost looks like a heavily mascara'd eye.

Bats and spiders and wolverines are OK, we guess, but it would be tough to beat an all-pink spandex costume as Orchid Mantis Man.

They're too big to eat comfortably in one sitting, but there's not really enough to save for next time. So you polish it off and feel shame. We've all been there.

It actually looks like the stars are erupting from Fuji, a sacred and active volcano located about 60 miles southwest of Tokyo. Find a campfire and grab your guitar!

It's actually a picture of the setting sun in Hamburg, taken from a police helicopter. It looks so peaceful from way up there!

The Painted Mountain in Peru is layered with rich, vibrant colours and located deep within the Andes. It has an elevation of 6,384 metres and features Oompa Loompas instead of Sherpas.

It's no doubt a message to their guests to slow down and take it easy and, while they're at it, raid the bar fridge where chocolate bars go for $5 a pop.

Nothing says chill like sitting indoors and watching the snow pile up outside. That snow sure looks like icing, but we'd have to get up off the couch and go outside to be sure.

Which came first? The carpet or the pooch? It's not just the color of the fur, but the texture too. These two were definitely meant to be together.
