Where you surprised at any of these? Which was your favorite?
Guess my weird fact file was at zero. 10 % of all photos ever taken in the last 12 months? This is what going digital does. My favorite – it rains diamonds on Jupiter and Saturn – am catching the next launch. 😉
Who wouldn’t love that rain fall? LOL
I knew some of these and not others, but I think my favourite is Scotland’s national animal 😀
Isn’t that great? I love that , too!
