Bird Flight Fractals
Mesmerizing curves and formations made from a flock of birds... some say that these birds exploit the atmospheric conditions preceding a tornado. But tornado, or not, if you see this happening again, can you please make a better-resolution video and send it to us?
Today's pictures & links:
Aerial Swimming Pool
Marina Bay Sand's Skypark in Singapore. Somebody has to shoot the next James Bond movie there. It just asks for a tightrope dance with a villain.
This swimming pool even has the "infinity edge" emptying out on the neighbouring skyscrapers. Simply awesome.
A River Runs Through It
...it runs through the gardens at Keukenhof in the Netherlands.

The Enormous Grid of Trees Spotted in Japan
Our reader Dave DenHerder spotted something unique in Google Maps on the northern island of Hokkaido, Japan - a giant forested grid of truly stupendous proportions!
He says, "At first, I almost ignored it until I realized that this pattern was huge... and very straight and precise for something that big. So I zoomed in until I saw that the grid was made up of bands of trees. Using the scale in the corner of the screen, I estimate that each square in the grid is about 2.5 miles wide!"
