15 Spellbinding Photos Taken in the Right Place at Just the Right Moment

A lizard walking on water, horizontal lightning, or a rainbow that got caught in a cat’s ear — these may sound unreal, but people actually managed to snap these and a bunch of other rare images with their cameras. Sometimes it’s a game between light and shade, sometimes it’s the right perspective, and sometimes it’s just pure luck. Whatever it is, we’re glad the owners of these epic shots didn’t keep them to themselves.

Here at Bright Side, we’ve selected 15 magical photos that Reddit users were so proud of, they couldn’t resist the urge to show them to the whole world.
