Time looks back over the past month to present a selection of underreported, improbable and astounding images that caught the attention of our photo editors. From skiing with a duck and throwing turnips at the devil to Niagara Falls freezing over and a pair of conjoined whales beaching in Baja, each photograph, we trust, maintains it’s ability to utterly, thoroughly surprise.

Picture number 8 "A lone tree stands in a snowy field in Hovel, England, Jan. 6, 2014."
It's quite obviously a flooded not a 'snowy' field. The extensive flooding in the UK has been quite high on the news agenda...and just in case you missed that a quick look at the link where the word 'flood' is used might have helped your caption writer.

English IS a nonsensical language. "It" does not take an apostrophe to form the possessive. It only is "it's" when it stands for "it is." So--it should read "its ability" above. I do acknowledge that while this is correct, it is not reasonable. But it is correct.
Thank you for the interesting photographs.
