Norfolk Nebraska clouds before the storm.... 4/14/2012 "Mammatus clouds are most often associated with the anvil cloud and severe thunderstorms. They often extend from the base of a cumulonimbus, but may also be found under altocumulus, altostratus, stratocumulus, and cirrus clouds, as well as volcanic ash clouds. When occurring in cumulonimbus, mammatus are often indicative of a particularly strong storm or perhaps even a tornadic storm."

Some pretty awesome mammatus clouds looming, and likely associated with a cumulonimbus storm cloud which can bring tornadoes, waterspouts, hail, lightning, and thunder. | Another Pinner said: "Norfolk Nebraska clouds before the storm.... 4/14/2012"

Go to Hillier Lake, Western Australia: The pink and lovely Hillier Lake is the only vividly pink lake you will find in the world. The color is permanent and never changes, even when water is removed and placed in a separate container. Its startling color remains a mystery and while scientists have proven it's not due to the presence of algae, unlike the other salt lakes down under, they still can't explain why it's pink... bucket list place to travel
Lake Hillier, Middle Island, Recherche Archipelago, Western Australia - the most notable feature of this lake is its rose pink color; the only vividly pink lake in the world. The color is permanent and never changes, even when placed in a separate container. Its color remains a mystery and while proven not to be due to algae, unlike the other salt lakes down under, there is still no explanation for its color.

Great weather picture - this multi-coloured cloud looks as if a rainbow has formed high in the heavens. The phenomenom - called a sundog - happens when ice crystals appear in clouds and refract the sun's rays.
My dad taught me about these when I was a child. From previous pinner: Not every cloud has a silver lining; this multi-coloured cloud looks as if a rainbow has formed high in the heavens. The phenomenom - called a sundog - happens when ice crystals appear in clouds and refract the sun's rays. Photographer Robert Arn captured the cloud in Heyworth, Illinois, America.

Zombie hand This mushroom - thought to be a specimen of Clathrus archeri, or “Devil’s Fingers” - takes the cake for being the strangest and creepiest specimen of a fungus looking like something else.

COMET MOTH or MADAGASCAR MOON MOTH is an African moth, native to the rain forests of Madagascar. The male has a wingspan of twenty centimeters and a tail span of fifteen centimeters, making it one of the world’s largest silk moths. The female lays from 120-170 eggs, and after hatching the larvae feed on Eugenia and Weinmannia leaves for approximately two months before pupating.
The last pinner said this is a: "Madagascan moon moth" -- Madagascar has some of the most amazing and beautiful creatures. I would love to go there someday to see a few in person. :D
The Comet moth (also known as the Madagascan moon moth) is one of the largest silk moths in the world and found only in Madagascar. This impressive Saturniidae species is similar to the Luna moth, but much larger. The males have extremely long tails, which can often reach up to 20cm. such a beauty :)

On the bucket list: seeing a glacier in Alaska!
Amazing striped icebergs Icebergs in Lake Michigan sometimes have stripes, formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions. Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with melt water and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.
Antarctica >> truly a dream destination
Striped Icebergs, Antarctica. These beautiful blue stripes occur when a crevice in the iceberg fills up with water, which freezes so quickly that no bubbles form. Green stripes can form when algae attaches to an iceberg as it falls into the sea. Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment that is picked up when the berg first travels down hills into the sea.
Iceberg, Glacier Bay, Alaska excellent place to take that cruise. Beautiful sights.

Lightning strike over water

Lightning strike over water. As a child, my mother would always say, "It's fine to get in the ocean, it's just heat lighting, it can't hurt you." ... Maybe I wasn't her favorite? Lol
Lightning strike over water......Simply amazing photography!
Though labeled "Lightning strike over water", Ron Ladell was good enough to point out that lightning doesn't travel in a straight line, leaving only one possible conclusion: this is a photo of an alien death ray aimed at some unsuspecting vessel or finned creature.
Lightning strike over water - scary but a beautiful example of mother nature.
