There is beauty everywhere in nature, even in the places you least expect it. You walk around outside, and every time you do, you see birds - some of them beautiful, some of them less so. But not many of you have probably stopped to admire the beauty of a pigeon. We're used to common pigeons, so we don't think about them too much, but when we see a special pigeon colored like the rainbow... well, that catches our eye. 

And it definitely caught twitter's eye, with a tweet about the pink-necked green pigeon going viral, people admiring its beauty. And luckily, there was a pigeon expert at hand to explain to us exactly what this rainbow-colored beauty is.

Colorful And Mesmerizing Snakes (16 Pics)

We know snakes aren't people's favorite when it comes to animals, and we get it. They can be quite terrifying to encounter in real life. Yet, as terrifying as they are, that does not mean that they're not beautiful. When we think of the terms "dangerously beautiful" we think of snakes... and sometimes spiders. Their scales can be so exotic and breathtaking, with colors you don't see on other animals. These reptiles are mesmerizing. 

So, try to place the initial fear you may be feeling for these reptiles and let them slither into your heart for just a moment.
