When something truly special happens, especially when it arises out of nowhere, people want to capture the moment. Moments like that are rare, which makes them even that much more special. These internet users shared images of random, special things, like intricate snowflakes, tiny bird feathers, carrot hands, and cars buried under rivers.
It’s similar to finding secrets inside things we use every day. When you look hard enough, you’ll usually find something quite fascinating. Some of these things on this list are quite funny, others quite special, and others are just so random, you might just do a double-take.
40. Anthropomorphic Icicle
“An anthropomorphic icicle hanging from my eave this morning.” – via Fritzout
We’ve all seen the standard icicle shape that’s sharp and pointy. This one decided to take on a womanly human form. Those few frozen droplets worked together to accidentally create this piece of art. Imagine if this happened often? We’d have our very own winter museum outside of our houses.
“My friend’s outfit exactly matched my coffee cup today.” – via Brentusfirmus
It’s not often you find yourself matching another person. But what happens when you match your coffee cup? Surely, that means it’s going to be a good day. This woman matched her coffee cup to a T. It’s worthy of a photo, and they even make a cute “cup-le.” This is a truly special memory.
We don’t usually see mold in the shape of a perfect circle. This round mold is picture-worthy, considering it looks painted onto the bread. Maybe this Reddit user even decided to keep the rounded, moldy bread as decoration, as a truly special finding.
“These patches of perfectly round mold on our bread.” – via kennsgal
“We found a safe behind a fake electrical socket in our new house.” – via hippyscum98
We have so many questions. First, what was kept in this safe? A secret map leading to buried treasure? Second, how did this Reddit user manage to find this socket in the first place? That’s some serious detective work. It must have been a pretty fun discovery nonetheless.
“The way this oak tree grew tangled up around this palm tree.” – via derf_vader
Nature is incredible, especially when we see things like this. This braided, rooted tree looks like two people hugging each other. This is an inseparable pair for sure and is a truly special, natural occurrence to witness.
“A single snowflake inside my vehicle resting against the radio monitor.” – via Anothergasman
When we catch snowflakes on our tongues, they disappear immediately. Seeing the intricate designs of a snowflake is quite rare, so we can thank this Reddit user for showing us this truly special thing.
“I made this origami as small as I could.” – via 88miyou88
You might’ve done a double-take after looking at these photos. You might even wonder how this person managed to create such a small, intricate origami. They must have the most precise, steady fingers out of anyone! They deserve a world record for this truly special creation.
This isn’t something you see every day. This fuzz is in the shape of a flamingo, and is truly special. This is something you would probably want to keep locked away in a box or in a frame somewhere, since it doesn’t happen very often or ever.
“My banana bruised in the shape of a smiling banana.” – via Craftyskunk
You’d think a bruised banana wouldn’t be smiling. At least this banana found humor in its pain and decided to turn it into something truly special. And we can thank this Reddit user for sharing this with us.
Whoever said brain power while eating pizza was a bad thing? This is a cool idea, considering we’re usually watching television or a movie while eating a pizza. This changes things up a bit and makes eating a pizza truly special.
“The way the smoke created a near-perfect picture of a polar bear on the lid of my grill.” – via Erifedud13
Imagine grilling and seeing the shape of an animal on the lid of your grill? Maybe it would deter you from eating meat, or, you could see it as something that’s truly special – almost like the spirit of an animal saying hello. Whichever your perspective, something like this definitely arose out of nowhere.
These reverse colored potatoes aren’t something you see every day, or ever. This special occurrence is rare, which is why we can thank this Reddit user for capturing it on camera and sharing it with us. We’d like to know if they tasted better than they looked.
“The white sweet potato has a purple inside and the purple sweet potato has a white inside.” – via M0uzer22
We’ve seen an egg with two yolks and even two bananas stuck together. But have you ever seen a two-stemmed apple? We’re probably all wondering which way you’re supposed to eat the apple, and if we’d even want to eat something as truly special as this. Nature is intriguing.
This looks like something you’d find at the bottom of the ocean, deep in the abyss, not something you’d casually find outside of your house. This strange caterpillar makes the list as something that’s truly special.
“What I thought was a non flowering succulent produced these after being severely neglected.” – via jessie_kitti
Imagine the relief of this Reddit user, after realizing their neglected cactus was, in fact, still producing flowers? They were probably just as confused as surprised. Hopefully, they learned their lesson about neglect, and decided to treat their next succulent with a little more TLC.
“Parking for Ukrainians Only sign from my Ukrainian grandfather’s basement.” – via hockeylax5
This is quite an antique sign to find, and is truly special. It’s like an artifact from another time, and it’s pretty awesome that this Reddit user’s grandfather kept it. It also has some meaning due to the current situation in the world as of now, as we hope the best for all Ukrainians and their families.
“Old Pepsi bottle I dug out of the ground.” – via Dread72
Finding artifacts buried in the ground is already a truly special and rare occurrence, so when it happens, we want to capture the moment. This old Pepsi bottle is an artifact from another time might make a cool house decoration.
We could all probably agree that it would be pretty hard to use this shaving cream and destroy this truly special, rare snail shape. Since this barely happens, we can thank this Reddit user for sharing this with us.
Amethyst is spiritually connected to trust, purification, connection, and understanding. This is a good omen for this Reddit user, and is truly special. It’s not every day we find amethyst in our gravel driveways.
“Found while out deer hunting in the middle of nowhere.” – via TakenAHike
We probably all have so many questions. Did this Reddit user pull the sword out of the rocks? Where did it come from? How long has it been there? Even though we’ll never have the answers to our questions, we can at least view this as something that’s truly special instead.
“My friend just found this little statue while digging in his own garden.” – via lodeluxMeaLux
Similar to the Pepsi bottle discovery, this little statue is another truly special, rare find. When you find something like this, it’s something you want to keep in a safe place. Still, it leaves us with many unanswered questions.
“The cutest caterpillar in the world.” – via KittyKaren
This caterpillar looks like a cartoon. It even has big eyes and a big smile. Similar to the bright purple mushroom, this caterpillar’s bright orange color is something we don’t see very often in nature!
“This morning I found by far the smallest frog I have ever seen in my entire life.” – via okgodlemmehaveit
This frog is smaller than this person’s fingernail! We’re all probably wondering what it’s like to live a life as small as this little guys. He must not be able to move around very much, considering his size.
This veiled lady mushroom looks like something you would play with as a kid. It’s colorful and has tons of cool holes in it. It’s a rarely seen type of mushroom that hunters love to come across in the forest.
“Found this ‘Veiled Lady’ mushroom on a hike this morning.” – via Spudnut
This is probably one of the most truly special things on this list. This is something you never see. It’s almost like it’s a vintage river, fossilized over decades, until nature took over and decided to incorporate the cars into the river bank.
