Photography takes a lot of skill, but what most people don’t realize is that sometimes that’s not enough. Every now and then, a special moment occurs and if your camera isn’t ready, you won’t be able to get that amazing shot. Check out these stunning and hilarious photos that couldn’t be captured at a better time to see exactly what we mean.

This is undoubtedly one of the most epic lightning strikes I’ve ever seen. Thankfully, nothing happened to the Statue of Liberty.
Similar thing happened in Rio De Janeiro during a storm in 2014, when a lightning struck the iconic statue of Christ. Unfortunately, it chipped off the statue’s right thumb.
Where did her head go?
This baby doesn’t realize just how lucky she is. She has an actual T-rex for a parent! Oh wait…

That poor soul has no idea what happened.
Either this photographer was extremely lucky or he waited for ages to take this breathtaking photo.

And you thought dragons didn’t exist…
This dog definitely has a unique skill set. Either that or his owner knows how to snap a photo at the perfect moment.
What do you think of my new shades?
When his commanding officer sees this photo, he’ll be in a lot of trouble…
This baby sure has big legs!

This photo has two explanations — either this referee is a wizard who can cast spells from his fingers or the photographer snapped it from the perfect angle.
