Butterfly Looks Like A Dry Leaf Outside But Is Beautiful Inside

The Kallima inachus, also known as the orange oakleaf or dead leaf butterfly is nature's perfect example of how something may not be the most beautiful on the outside but is hiding incredible beauty on the inside. This butterfly may not look like much when its wings are closed, hiding in plain sight, camouflaged as a dead leaf, but the moment its wings open, so does our eyes open in awe.

This butterfly has one of the best camaflauge abilities we've ever seen. It is so easy to miss. You might have even seen one in your own life at some point, and because it's wings were closed, you didn't even know about it. That's how easy it is to miss someone's inner beauty, and we hope that this incredible creation of nature will remind you how important it is to appreciate what is inside.

Not only have we never heard a hummingbird snore, but we also don't think we've ever seen one sit still for more than 10 seconds! That alone is an incredible triumph to have captured. Not only is this adorably wee hummingbird sleeping, but to capture the sound it makes while it sleeps? Again, we're just blown away by this video on all accounts. 

And to top it all off, the snore itself is unexpected and simply amazing. We cannot get over this little and powerful whistle-snore. Who could've guessed it! Thanks, BBC, for always bringing such incredible animal moments into our lives!

Those kinds of pictures are some of our favorites because they truly get our imagination running. So, every single week, we bring you a new collection of pictures like that in the hope that they inspire you as much as they inspire us, that they give you the creative energy that we all thrive on. 

Fun tip for this week's list: not everything that is a leaf is a leaf.

Interspecies Encounters: Wholesome Animal Edition

Honestly, there is nothing more adorable than seeing a pair of animals (who are completely different species) get along. 

Why is that? Maybe it's because animals are just better than people and can be friends with almost anyone, regardless of their species. It's a beautiful and pure sight and if this doesn't brighten up your day, we honestly don't know what will. 

Enjoy some major wholesomeness!

Pictures Worth More Than 1000 Words (27 Images)

Each week we bring you such potent images that there aren't enough words to describe them! 

The very meaning behind an image being worth more than 1000 words is that the image conveys such emotion, complexity, simplicity, and we simply do not have the words to fully describe its beauty in its entirety.  And that is actually beautiful in its own way. 

Sometimes, we don't even need words to express ourselves clearly. Enjoy the following gallery of stunning animal images that don't need any caption.
