On a recent trip to a botanical garden, my son saw a squirrel a few feet away from us. He said, "Dad, you ought to take a picture of that squirrel."
I did. Right after I took the picture, the squirrel squatted down, spread his legs out, and laid belly down on the dirt to cool off. Of course, I took another picture. I think my son and I will laugh about that squirrel for years to come.

Marine researchers in South Africa had a narrow escape after a three-metre-long great white shark breached the surface of the sea and leapt into their boat, becoming trapped on deck for more than an hour.
The incident occurred while the research team was conducting a shark population study off Seal Island, near Mossel Bay, on South Africa's Cape coast.
