Hurricane Marie sends huge waves to Southern California
Surfers enjoy giant waves at the Wedge, a famous surf spot in Newport Beach, California, where some of the storm-driven swells were reported to hit 25 feet in height. The conditions were generated by Hurricane Marie, which had built momentum off the Baja coast. The swells generated by the hurricane were believed to be the largest seen in years in the region.

Two-year-old Ashley was challenged by her cousin Evan to do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Ashley, like a lot of two year olds, isn’t the biggest fan of cold water but was determined to complete the challenge with the aid of a large pair of goggles. And who better for Ashley to challenge than the two idols of any young girl: Barbie and Dora the Explorer! (as well as her dad, and her mom, and the rest of the family…). Credit: YouTube/Mike Weber
Ethan is a musical toddler who loves to wander around the music room playing each and every instrument. One day, Ethan’s parents were lucky enough to capture their son singing a ‘heavy metal’ version of the ABC’s. Ethan’s dad, Sean, said: “We had never seen him do this before, and he has never seen anyone sing like this. This was pure and truly from the heart and on the spot!” Credit: YouTube/Sean Conrad
In this aerial recording, a curious fox runs through a giant field of blackcurrants in the Radviliskis area of Lithuania. He darts in, out and around the rows of blackcurrant plants, appearing as though he is playing a crafty game of hide and seek with the drone recording his movements. The animal looks towards the drone while exploring his environment, perhaps keen to perform for the camera. Credit: Saulius Zaura
