Photographer Captures by Coincidence an Incredible Shot of a Plane Flying Across the Sun

The best things for sure are the ones that happen spontaneously for sure. The trill of the unknown that’s coming your way is way better than having something planned for a long time before-hand and turning completely different in the end.

A lot of people, mostly professional photographers were able to document these happenstances that appear in front of us, then disappear with the blink of an eye. One of these legendary photographers is Andrew McCarthy who experienced a magical moment while he was trying to capture the sun he accidentally shot a stunning pic of an airplane flying against the backdrop of the sun. Even though one might think it was carefully planned, actually it was all the result of a coincidence.

“I had set up my solar telescope to capture an image of the full disc of the sun,” McCarthy explains, “and since taking pictures involves using a high-frame-rate camera, I was in the middle of a batch of frames when the plane crossed, allowing me to capture that perfect moment when it was dead center! It was sheer luck.”

In McCarthy’s photo, the sun appears as a jubilant pink orb bobbing in the blue-gray sky that is punctuated with the silhouette of a commercial airplane. It looks so perfect that if you didn’t realize the entire composition was captured in-camera, you might assume it was Photoshopped.

He shared this picture on his Instagram account and that went viral. The artist says he was so thankful for the social media that allowed his image to be shared across pilot forums and eventually crossing the path of the pilot.

Check out McCarthy’s incredible images below.

Photographer Captures Vast Array of Wild Animals That Cross a Nearby Log Bridge

While we might not all be lucky enough to have bears and bobcats in our backyard, it’s super easy to capture footage of your own local wildlife. All you need to do is invest in one of the best trail cameras, pick a suitable spot in your garden and then simply sit back and wait. The beauty of trail cameras is that they completely remove the human element from wildlife photography and videography. Even the most experienced wildlife photographer runs the risk of encroaching on their subject’s space and affecting their behavior.

And the fact that you don’t need a pro-level camera and telephoto lens to capture amazing footage of local wildlife – is also proved by a YouTube video. The video shows an incredible mixture of animals crossing a log bridge in Pennsylvania. Captured by local man Robert Bush using a camera trap, wildlife including bears, bobcats, grouse, beavers, and more used a fallen log to traverse the terrain. In addition, Bush runs a Facebook Page and YouTube Channel Bob’s Pennsylvania Wildlife Camera, where he posts all of his footage as it’s captured.

Hence, you can find Robert’s video below which shows animals that crossed the bridge over the course of one year. This is a natural habitat of all these species, and it’s fascinating just how many of them there are. In the meantime, check out more of Robert Bush’s incredible wildlife footage here. It’s all about wildlife and if you enjoy wildlife photography and films, I’m sure you’ll love it!

This amazing video was created using a trail camera over the course of a year. It seems that Robert Bush was able to cannily predict that the fallen log would provide a ‘choke point’ for land-based wildlife to be able to cross the river.
