    Very much worth watching. I do not particularly like Jimmy Kimmel or a lot of his innuendo...but I have to say, this was a stand up thing he did. And, the details of the story, tat you may not have heard before, are simply amazing. As I say, this is worth watching.

    The photographer of this photo is just great! He got a very right time and angle, and a very professional camera. Yesterday, I saw a big beautiful butterfly and I want video it; however, my camera is not professional that I have to come to close to it, and frighten it away.
