If you've ever tried getting close to a hummingbirds, the only thing you saw was probably a hum, blur, and then nothing. While in-flight, they are nearly impossible to see clearly, that is unless..you have a Phantom high-speed camera ready to go and already set up. Scotland-based photographer wanted to capture this beautiful creature during a recent trip to Costa Rica. He says: "It took a while to be able to get any shots of one. In the space of an hour I took nearly a thousand shots. A good proportion were excellent out of focus pictures of bushes with no birds to be seen." Continue reading for a couple more images.

It's touted as the second of only three attractions in the world to use a new trackless ride system designed by Walt Disney Imagineering. This ride is the successor to both Disneyland's Motor Boat Cruise and the Autopia, from which Aquatopia received its name as homage. It consists of around three dozen vehicles designed to look like personal hovercrafts which move independently from each other at quick speeds through a large water lagoon.

When viewed from the outside, this structure in Bangkok, Thailand doesn't look like much, but it was once the bustling New World Mall. Built in 1982 by the Kaew Fah Plaza Company, the 11-story New World Mall enjoyed a brief period of success, Unfortunately, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) shut the mall down 15-years later in 1997 when they realized that the owner had obtained permission to construct only four floors. They then destroyed the seven upper levels and a subsequent fire in 1999 left the mall roofless. Without cover, rainwater filled the basement and this pool of stagnant water soon became a breeding place for mosquitoes. So, local vendors decided to release a few fish into the water, to get rid of them. Soon, the fish began to multiply and take over the once stagnant, mosquito-laden waters.
