She Was Left In The Streets When She Was Young. And She Never Expected Whose Sister Is She.

Jennifer Bricker is an amazing person. Not because after being given up for adoption since she was born without legs, she still went on to be the top tumbling champion for the state of Illinois. And not just because she continued to pursue sports like softball and basketball despite her physical limitations. It’s because while she was achieving these goals she never let the word can’t stop her.

Rescued Baby Elephant Plays With A Ribbon At A Park. My Heart Just Melted.

At the Elephant Nature Park sanctuary in Thailand a recently rescued elephant named Faa Mai was given an elastic ribbon to play with. You might not think that elephants (or animals in general) have feelings. When you see what little Faa Mai did, it will keep you smiling for hours...!

Elephants are extremely intelligent and sensitive animals. An elephant's brain is actually similar to a humans, in complexity and in structure. Just by watching Faa Mai play with a ribbon, I know that I'm completely convinced of their emotional range.


These 7 Vivid Hummingbird Close-Ups Will Blow Up Your Mind.

When it comes to birds, the terms “strong” or “beautiful” might inspire images of fierce eagles or decadent tropical parrots. But both of these birds will certainly find strong contender in hummingbirds, which possess a unique sort of delicate beauty and a mastery of avian maneuvers like no other. We created this list of 7 stunning hummingbird photos to show you just how beautiful they can be.

Capturing a photo of a hummingbird in flight with clearly focused wings can be very difficult, as some varieties are capable of beating their wings up to 52 times a second. This gives them the ability to hover and fly backwards – something that few other birds can do and that none have mastered the way the hummingbird has.
