Around the world...

The  Star Planter  is a statue that is located  in Kaunas, Lithuania. During the day it is just a statue - a legacy of the Soviet era.

But when the night arrives, the statue justifies its title. In the darkness its name definitely makes sense.

We think that they don't understand...

From the post in YouTube: 
"Every time the Cymbalta* commercial comes on, my dog sings along to it. I don't know if it's the music, or he's depressed and trying to tell us, or what. But it ONLY happens with this commercial... - no other commercial, movie, TV show, song, etc. has made him do this."

***Cymbalta is a antidepressant drug.

Mass Migration of Stingrays

Looking like giant leaves floating in the sea, thousands of Golden Rays are seen here gathering off the coast of Mexico.

The spectacular scene was captured as the magnificent creatures made one of their biannual mass migrations to more agreeable waters.

Gliding silently beneath the waves, they turned vast areas of blue water to gold off the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula .

Sandra Critelli,  photographer, stumbled across the phenomena while looking for whale sharks.

She said: 'It was an unreal image, very difficult to describe. The surface of the water was covered by warm and different shades of gold and looked like a bed of autumn leaves gently moved by the wind.
