Perfectly Timed Photos That Will Mess With Your Head

You might not be the best photographer in the world, but sometimes everything in the universe aligns so precisely, all you have to do is press the shutter-release button in the right place at the right time. Every now and then, perfect timing can make or break a photo, turning it into a hilarious coincidence or a beautiful illusion.
From a fabulous ostrich that appears to have the best hair in the world to a struggling substitute teacher sending subtle hints, these shots will definitely make you look twice. But remember, it doesn't mean you don't have to work on improving your photography skills. To quote a popular saying, "Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity."
