This image of a cat staring out of a window is almost like an optical illusion. After all, the cat looks like a mythical beast that walked right out of your favorite fairytale!

Writers often use phrases like “a river of flowers,” but they are usually being metaphorical. But in the Netherlands, the flower river is very real, and we can’t stop staring at it.

Egg arrangement

What, did you think eggs could only be colorful and striking around Easter? These eggs are here to prove that they don’t need any fancy dye to bring out their inner beauty.

Capturing the sea

What could be more impressive than the artist perfectly capturing the vastness of the ocean on a small canvas? The fact that the entire thing was drawn in pencil!

Breathtaking lakehouse

Part of what makes lakes so awesome is seeing a perfect reflection. And this image seemingly captures two lakehouses: one above the water and one below!

Snow is so beautiful that it creates natural works of art through sheer gravity! In fact, the only bad part about staring at this particular image is that it gives us a serious craving for some rolled ice cream.

Scaly street art

Some of the best street art takes everyday sights and turns them into something surprising and moving. For example, this street artist turned a simple gate into a crocodile with a royal coloration and a haunting stare.

Between snows and seas
