@msolga,
Those elephants at twilight. So serene. So peaceful. (Even though the sky is pink! Surprised )

I just Googled: "Antarctica + beautiful photographs" & found so many spectacular sites!
I think it's the most startlingly, starkly beautiful place on the planet. Our last bit of remaining wilderness. (But for how long?) I would love to experience this! (More stunning photographs on this Boston.com link)

@boomerang,
http://clounaghscience.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/snake-meets-frog-award-winning-nature-photo.jpg

This photo (called Deadlock) was the winner of the Wildlife Photographer of the year (2008). It was taken at 3 a.m. in the Belize rain forest. The cat-eyed snake has attacked the Morelet’s tree frog, but failed to get it’s mouth around the frog, resulting in this deadlock. This photograph was taken by David Maitland.

I was also thinking of some of the photographs I've seen of central Australia .. the desert completely transformed by the recent floods. But I've run out of puff tonight, so maybe tomorrow?

Night, all.

@Roberta,
This is one of my all-time favorite shots (maybe not a high point for the fish). Think of the photographer's timing. A second sooner or a second later. Love this:
